Netflix renews Queer Eye for early season 6
More good news coming from the entertainment world today as Netflix is not looking to part ways with the Fab Five anytime soon! The streaming service has greenlit a sixth season of the acclaimed Queer Eye reboot ahead of the still undated fifth season, according to Variety.
The eight-episode third and fourth seasons took place in Kansas City, Missouri, with co-hosts Antoni Porowski (Food & Wine), Bobby Berk (Interior Design), Karamo Brown (Culture), Jonathan Van Ness (Grooming), and Tan France (Fashion). The series received four Emmy Award nominations for its second season in the Structured Reality Program, Casting, Picture Editing, and Cinematography categories.
The sixth season, which doesn’t currently have an episode count, will see the team return to their southern roots with a homebase in Austin, Texas, “to scour the prairie in a search for a whole new roster of heroes in need of a little TLC.”
It’s been fifteen years since the Emmy Award-winning series Queer Eye for the Straight Guy revolutionized 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).
Season two saw 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!
Queer Eye for the Straight Guy creator David Collins (Scout Productions) serves as executive producer for Queer Eye, along with producing partners Michael Williams and Rob Eric. David Eilenberg, Adam Sher, Jennifer Lane and Jordana Hochman also serve as executive producers in association with ITV Entertainment.
The first four seasons of the series are available to stream on Netflix. Season 5 has already begun its production in Philadelphia and is expected to debut on the streamer in 2020.
