Season 2 of Netflix's 'Queer Eye' to premiere on June 15
Netflix has announced that season 2 of 'Queer Eye' will be returning to the platform next month on June 15.
When Netflix announced that it was reviving 'Queer Eye,' it was met with excitement from legions of the show's fans, with the first season of the much-vaunted reboot premiering on the streaming service this past February. But it looks like the show will be making a return with its second season much, much earlier than thought possible, with the network announcing that season two will launch globally next month on June 15.
While the original 2003 iteration featured Ted Allen, Kyan Douglas, Thom Filicia, Carson Kressley, and Jai Rodriguez as the 'Fab Five,' Netflix's rebooted version introduced to the world five new equally brilliant men: Antoni Porowski (Food & Wine), Bobby Berk (Interior Design), Karamo Brown (Culture), Jonathan Van Ness (Grooming), and Tan France (Fashion).
For the second season, the Fab Five will return to the Georgia Heartland and forge connections with communities that hail from a wide array of backgrounds and beliefs, spreading their values of self-love and faith, and tackling controversial subjects such as immigration. As ever, they will also be bringing along a message of encouragement as they try to uplift the eight new heroes.
To those unaware of the premise of the show, it revolves around the Fab Five — each of whom boasts of expertise in one of fashion, style, personal grooming, interior design, and culture — as they perform a 'makeover' for a usually heterosexual man, revamping wardrobes, redecorating, and offering advice on grooming, lifestyle, and food.
Initially titled 'Queer Eye for the Straight Guy,' the show was an instant success at the time and won an Emmy Award for Outstanding Reality Program. The final episode aired in October 2006 and the show was off the air for the next 12 years before Netflix decided to revive it in 2017.
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.
