The reality show reboot has been a smash hit for the streaming giant, thanks to its combination of a feel-good message about self-worth, inclusivity and five fabulous TV presenters.
“Strip away the hair product, designer jeans and cordless window blinds, and you’re left with a show that is simply about love,” we wrote in our review of the show. “The Queer Eye cast encourage people to be kind and better themselves, all through the ethos of love. They embrace those who don’t immediately embrace them back and aren’t afraid to have seemingly awkward, but productive, conversations. Their love is infectious and just what this world needs.”
The new Fab Five, who help give people make-betters (not makeovers), have each become popular fan favourites online, from Antoni Porowski (Food and Wine), Bobby Berk (Interior Design) and Karamo Brown (Culture) to Tan France (Fashion) and Jonathan Van Ness (Grooming). The gang have already enjoyed two hit seasons, a mini-episode site in the town of Yass, Australia, and a crossover with baking series Nailed It. To top it all off, they were honoured with four Emmy nominations for the show this week – including Structured Reality Series, Casting, Picture Editing and Cinematography – 14 years after the show’s original incarnation won its first Emmy.
Now, they’ve got a third season to add to the list, with the show’s official Twitter account announcing the news last night, as the Fab Five head to Kansas City, Missouri.

Queer Eye is back next week, and ready to transform the stylistically challenged into hip and happening savants at the hands of the new Fab Five. These fearless ambassadors of taste are about to embark on Queer Eye’s boldest crusade ever, bringing a message of encouragement and uplift to eight new heroes – and a new trailer gives us a look at those heroes in action.
It’s been 15 years since the Emmy Award-winning series Queer Eye for the Straight Guy revolutionised reality television. The series returned to Netflix in 2018, going global and introducing audiences around the world to a modern aesthetic, diverse perspectives and a brand new Fab Five: Antoni Porowski (Food & Wine), Bobby Berk (Interior Design), Karamo Brown (Culture), Jonathan Van Ness (Grooming) and Tan France (Fashion).
This season, the Queer Eye Fab Five return to the Georgia heartland, forging connections with communities from a wide array of backgrounds and beliefs often contrary to their own, touching on everything from self-love and faith, to immigration and how to make the perfect homemade poke bowls and more.

Netflix reboots Queer Eye for the Straight Eye as part of reality TV push
25th January 2017
Netflix is rebooting Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, as the streaming giant makes a major push into reality TV territory.
The site’s originals shows have become increasingly diverse in the last year, moving from prestigious dramas, such as House of Cards, to series targeted at older viewers, such as Grace and Frankie, young adult thrillers, such as Shadowhunters, and even a talk show presented by Chelsea Handler. The latter is an indicator of where the streaming service is heading next, as it increasingly focuses on growing its non-scripted output.
Last year, that push began with the announcement of Sly Stallone’s global tournament series, Ultimate Beastmaster. Now, Netflix is backing it up with a reboot of Queer Eye for the Straight Guy.
The makeover series first aired back in 2003, turning its stars into household names in the US and helping to spark the wave of primetime reality shows that is still continuing today. The show even won an Emmy for Outstanding Reality Program in 2004. Now, over a decade later, it will return this year with eight new episodes. Co-creators David Collins and Michael Williams of Scout Productions will executive produce the show alongside Scout’s Rob Eric. In front of the camera will be a quintet of currently unnamed stylists, with the reimagining of the programme set to begin production this spring.
“In a time when America stands divided and the future seems uncertain, a team of five brave men will try to bring us closer together with laughter, heart, and just the right amount of moisturizer,” Netflix reportedly announced in a statement. “The Emmy Award-winning Queer Eye is back and ready to Make America Fabulous Again. With a new Fab 5 and the show’s toughest missions to date, Queer Eye moves from the Big Apple to turn the red states pink … one makeover at a time.”
