YAS Queer!

Netflix has a sharp eye for rebooting old hit shows for the modern age — and now it’s ready to give our country a much needed makeover.

It’s been revealed that the streaming platform will reboot the groundbreaking series Queer Eye for the Straight Guy!

According to EW, the former Bravo makeover reality show is being “reimagined” with a timely twist — the makeover specialists will be making over the Red States of Trumpmerica!

A statement from the show’s producers said:

“In a time when America stands divided and the future seems uncertain, a team of five brave men will try to bring us closer together with laughter, heart, and just the right amount of moisturizer. The Emmy Award-winning Queer Eye is back and ready to Make America Fabulous Again. With a new Fab 5 and the show’s toughest missions to date, Queer Eye moves from the Big Apple to turn the Red States pink ├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥ one makeover at a time.”


Sure, we’re a little disappointed the Netflix edition is casting a new Fab Five for the eight episode order — but it’s rumored the OG hosts might also have some involvement.

The original Bravo series ran from 2003-2007 and featured a team of New York style experts giving makeovers to sad straight men. And knowing the new team will potentially be giving style tips for which shirts go best with “Make America Great Again” trucker hats (hint: NONE) makes this reboot that much more fab!

It’s also interesting that news of this reboot came on the heels of the Will & Grace reboot announcement. Are producers trying to make up for the few steps back in tolerance American society seemingly took in the past few months?

Either way, we can’t wait for the return of Queer Eye!
