“Queer Eye” will be back for a second season.
Netflix announced that it has ordered eight more episodes for its reboot of “Queer Eye for the Straight Guy.” The cast of Bobby Berk (interior design), Karamo Brown (culture), Tan France (fashion), Antoni Porowski (food and wine) and Jonathan Van Ness (grooming) will make their return to change the looks and lives of men in Georgia.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, Netflix also ordered second seasons for the unscripted series “Dope,” “Drug Lords,” “Nailed It!” and “The Toys That Made Us.”
“These series are indicative of what we’re trying to accomplish for Netflix unscripted: working with world-class producers to create the best unscripted shows on television,” Netflix vice president of content Bela Bajaria said in a statement. “These series elevate the genre with innovative takes on familiar formats. They deliver immersive and nuanced stories. They elicit so many emotions from viewers, from tears of laughter to tears of joy — and that’s just ‘Queer Eye.’”
In an interview with Variety, Berk revealed that they had already filmed the additional episodes that will appear in the second season. He teased that the sophomore season will have even more diversity.
“One of the things I’m most excited about for the new season is the continuation of diversity, even more so than the last season. Without giving anything away, with our heroes, you’re going to be seeing a lot more different people than you did the first time. A lot of people have been asking,’Why are you just working with straight guys?’ Or we did have one gay guy. And I’m like, ‘Stay tuned for Season 2. You’ll see a lot more diversity,'” Berk told Variety.
No return date has been announced.
