With all of the fabulous guest judges for season 12 of RuPaul’s Drag Race announced, here’s where you can catch all of the new episodes.

The season is set to air for US viewers every Friday, starting February 28. But Irish and UK fans will have to wait for Saturday before they can stream the show on Netflix. Watch out for spoilers on social media in the meantime!

Some of the biggest stars will be guest judges this season – Normani, Robyn, Jonathan Bennett, Chaka Kahn, Jeff Goldblum, Daisy Ridley, Thandie Newton, Olivia Munn, Rachel Bloom, Daniel Franzese, Winnie Harlow and Whoopi Goldberg will all be giving their hot takes on drag race and the queens.

Short video clips were released on social media showing all of the judges glammed up. “I pledge allegiance to the drag,” they said.

That’s not all though, US politician Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) will also be bringing it to the runway. Elected at age 29, AOC became the youngest woman to be in the US congress.

Naturally, more conservative members of the US government were unimpressed by her appearance on the show, but AOC hit back and told them to “go back to Party City”.

Back in January, Nicki Minaj was announced as a guest judge. In two weeks time, she’ll be judging on the premiere episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race, season 12.

As mentioned before though, she won’t be the only musician to guest star on this season. Dancing On My Own singer and Swedish sensation Robyn is looking as fabulous as ever in the trailer. As is former Fifth Harmony member Normani.

Not every judge is instantly recognisable though. Daniel Franzese may not ring a bell, but he started as Damian in the hit comedy Mean Girls back in 2004. Co-star Jonathan Bennett, who played the love interest, will also be making an appearance. Oscar-winner Whoopi Goldberg needs no introduction though, nor does Jurassic Park star Jeff Goldblum.

Thirteen queens will compete to grab the attention of this stellar list of guest judges, as well as RuPaul, Michelle Visage, Carson Kressley and Ross Mathews.
