Netflix’s Queer Eye is heading to Japan for a special one-off mini-series.
Netflix’s reality TV reboot has become a smash hit, thanks to its positive messages about self-love and self-belief, with Antoni Porowski (Food & Wine), Bobby Berk (Interior Design), Karamo Brown (Culture), Jonathan Van Ness (Grooming) and Tan France (Fashion) becoming global icons by encouraging people to be kind and better themselves.
After two seasons, Netflix has already ordered a third run, but has now commissioned an additional four episodes that will see the Fab Five head to Japan. Queer Eye: We’re In Japan! will see the gang work with tastemakers in Tokyo, learning about Japanese cuisine and fashion, as well as design and culture.
“In just a year since we launched season one, Queer Eye has become a global phenomenon once again and the Fab Five are truly the ambassadors of self-care and compassion that the world needs now more than ever,” David Collins, creator and executive Producer of Queer Eye, said in a statement. “Filming in Japan is a wonderful opportunity for us to work with four deserving heroes that will help showcase the incredible traditions and customs of their country.”
The episodes follow a similar one-off special that saw Queer Eye go Down Under for Yass, Australia, a one-off outing released last year (you can watch that here).
Queer Eye: We’re In Japan! will air on Netflix later this year, following the broadcast of Season 3. Never seen Queer Eye? Read our guide to why you need it in your life.
