Since Will & Grace so successfully relaunched itself recently that it even picked up a Golden Globe Nomination, another Emmy Award Winning LGBT series is being revived and heading for its new home on NETFLIX.
It’s actually been fifteen years since Queer Eye for the Straight Guy was on our screens, but unlike Will & Grace it is returning with a totally brand new cast: Antoni Porowski (Food & Wine), Bobby Berk (Interior Design), Karamo Brown (Culture), Jonathan Van Ness (Grooming) and Tan France (Fashion). Not only that it has left New York and decamped to Atlanta Georgia.
The big question is, will this new Five be as Fab as the old ones? Well, they say the original show was about fighting for acceptance, whereas now it is all about tolerance and judging by the sneak preview we had (see below) we think that this could just be another winner.
It starts on Netflix globally on February 7th so judge for yourself.
