Tissues at the ready – Queer Eye is back for its third season this spring. The Fab Five will be back on hand to make over a host of new heroes. Here’s a look ahead at what to expect in the new series.
When is Queer Eye season 3 released on Netflix?
Queer Eye season three is coming to Netflix this March.
All episodes will drop on the streaming site on March 15, but the number of episodes hasn’t been revealed yet.
The announcement was made via Twitter yesterday (February 13) with the message: “WE’RE BAAACK HENNYS! Get ready to L<3ve yourself! Queer Eye 3 launches March 15. HUGE thanks to @carlyraejepsen for this exclusive preview of her NEW BOP, Now That I Found You.”
The tweet was posted with a cute announcement video which can be watched above.
Season three sees the return of the beloved Fab Five; Antoni Porowski, Bobby Berk, Karamo Brown, Jonathan Van Ness and Tan France.
What will happen in Queer Eye season 3?
Season three sees the game move proceedings from Atlanta, Georgia to Kansas City, Missouri.
According to Netflix: “The Emmy Award-winning Queer Eye returns ready to transform the stylistically challenged and into hip and happening savants at the hands of the Fab Five.
“This season, these fearless ambassadors of taste are headed to Kansas City to bring their infectious brand of self-love, confidence and encouragement to a whole new roster of heroes.”
The series is based on the long-running noughties show Queer Eye for the Straight Guy which had a similar format but only took place in New York City.
Netflix’s take on the show sees the Fab Five find their subjects in more rural areas.
Whereas seasons one and two focused mainly on male contestants, season three will feature an equal number of males and females per episodes.
Interiors expert Bobby Berk confirmed the update to Variety last year.
“No offence to men, but we have so much more fun with women,” he said.
Stylist Tan France also confirmed that the Fab Five will make over a lesbian for the first time.
“We have our first lesbian on the show this year and she’s formidable,” he said on Netflix variety show Patriot Act with Hasan Minhaj.
“What we do with her, you’re going to love it.”
The group’s food and wine specialist Anthony Porowski told E News that “inclusivity and diversity” will continue to be the focus of the show.
“I think people are going to see a lot of differences in Kansas City, but they’re going to see maybe more and understand a little more clearly that we are all the same, our struggles are the same, to show up for our families, to be better lovers, friends, parents children, like these are all human experiences,” he explained.
“It doesn’t matter which coast or which country you’re in, it’s all something you can relate to.”
The show also filmed some special episodes in Japan which will air at a later date in 2019.
