Netflix is about to launch its reboot of Queer Eye, the makeover show that ran for five seasons in the early 2000s on Bravo. It featured a group of five gay men giving complete makeovers to straight men, and the new version is perfectly updated for 2018. As the guys say in the trailer, 10 years later, the fab five are fighting for acceptance instead of tolerance.
The trailer gives us a look at a few of the lucky men whose lives get a bit of a sprucing up, and it's hard not to feel all warm and fuzzy just from the brief look at their transformations and their newfound confidence.
"Gay or straight, a common thread that holds every human together is that we just want to be loved," says design expert Bobby Berk at the end of the promo.
Berk is joined by culture expert Karamo Brown, food and wine specialist Antoni Porowski, grooming expert Jonathan Van Ness, and stylist Tan France as the new fab five.
According to Netflix's official description, the first season of the new Queer Eye "trades its original New York setting for communities in and around Atlanta, Georgia. Our new Fab Five will forge relationships with men and women from a wide array of backgrounds and beliefs often contrary to their own, touching on everything from LGBTQ rights and social commentary to how to make the best farm-to-table guacamole and more!"
Based on the episodes Netflix made available for critics, it's completely worth a watch (especially if you need a good happy cry).
All episodes of Queer Eye premiere Wednesday, February 7 on Netflix.
