Right after the celebration of Queer Eye‘s four Emmy nominations, Netflix announced it has greenlighted another eight-episode third season for the series. Production is set to begin mid-July in Kansas City, Missouri, with plans for debut in 2019. The co-hosts, Antoni Porowski, Bobby Berk, Karamo Brown, Tan France, and Jonathan Van Ness (also known as the “Fab Five”) will all return for the new season.
This news announcement comes 15 years after the original makeover series first aired on Bravo. It ran for five seasons, ending in 2007. Then, Netflix came to the rescue, reviving the series, which premiered February 2018 with an entirely new Fab Five. The second season dropped this past June.
Though the atmosphere of society has changed greatly since the premiere of the original series, Queer Eye has been welcomed with open arms and high praise. In the premiere episode, France stated the the biggest difference between the old and the new show:
“The original show was fighting for tolerance. Our show is fighting for acceptance.”
The series is executive produced by David Collins, Michael Williams and Rob Eric for Scout Productions, with Jennifer Lane as showrunner. David George, Adam Sher, David Eilenberg and Jordana Hochman for ITV Entertainment also executive produce?
