We've been waiting patiently for Mama Ru to offer up the goods, and now she's finally delivered, with the exciting TV launch being confirmed on Twitter.
"LOOK OVER THERE," the streaming platform teased on its UK and Ireland page - making a reference to the iconic miss Jaida Essence Hall, from season 12.
"RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars Season 5 *will* be coming to Netflix UK/IE in June".

The All Stars 5 cast includes some sickening queens, so you'd better use this time to mentally prepare for their return.
Sissying that walk onto your screen will be: Shea Coulée, Jujubee, Miz Cracker, Alexis Matteo, Blair St Clair, Mariah Balenciaga, India Ferrah, Derrick Barry, Mayhem Miller and Ongina. Wowza - what a line-up.
If that bunch weren't enough to set your pulse racing, there's more exciting news, too.
It looks like the season is going to be *epic*, with Ru promising "the biggest shake-up in herstory," as All Stars rules are set to be permanently suspended and a brand new format is introduced.
He teased: "For All Stars 5, we've come up with a new twist that is so twisted it's guaranteed to twist your twisted minds."
We MUST know more immediately.
The series will be landing on VH1 in the US on June 5th, one week after season 12 comes to an end.
While Netflix hasn't yet announced the exact UK launch date, now they've confirmed its next month, we could well see it landing on the same date, or not long afterwards.
The exciting news comes as fans are preparing to wave goodbye to drag race season 12 - for which the finale episode was filmed online as a result of the ongoing pandemic.
The contestants will be forced to compete in a virtual lip sync to win the crown, and prove their charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent is the brightest of all.
It will be different - sure - but we kind of can't wait!
*So* much Drag Race excitement to get us through lockdown.
