Move over Ted Allen, Kyan Douglas, Thom Filicia, Carson Kressley and Jai Rodriguez because there's a new "fab five" in town.
Yes, Netflix is releasing an updated version of Queer Eye for the Straight Guy and the old cast is out. They've been replaced by five newer, fresher faces.
“It’s a new time with a new audience,” series creator David Collins explained. “If the original round was about tolerance, this time it is about acceptance.”
Of the newbies, the only one we recognize is the fabulous and funny Jonathan Van Ness of Gay of Thrones fame. He'll be offering grooming advice in the role originally held by Kyan.
The other guys are Tan France (fashion), Antoni Porowski (food), Bobby Berk (interior design) and Kamaro Brown (who takes over where Jai left off in the "culture" role).
And no, the boys are not staying in the relatively safe confines of New York City. They are heading into the red states across America, where queer eyes often end up being punched.
“In order to make the emotions bigger, you actually had to see how [the Fab Five] were reacting to being with a cop from the South who was a Trump supporter, [or] ‘hillbilly Tom,’ who refers to himself by saying ‘you can’t fix ugly,’” said executive producer Rob Eric.
“These guys walked away truly loving every single hero that they made over and talked about them for weeks afterward. It affected them just as much as they affected our hero.”
The series will also delve into the lives of each of the five men.
“If you think about the original five, we definitely weren’t going to be talking about that Tan is married to a Mormon cowboy, let alone that he’s Muslim. So it’s those authentic moments that really pay off in this new version of Queer Eye,” Collins explained.
The show will debut in February, 2018.
