Can you believe?! After an overwhelmingly successful first run, Queer Eye has been picked up for Season 2, and we’re chugging down redneck margaritas in honor of our favorite makeover dudes: Antoni, Bobby, Jonathan, Karamo, and Tan. While we’re counting down the days until we get to binge-watch Queer Eye Season 2, Fab Five design guru Bobby Berk and series creator David Collins spilled the beans on what to expect from the next set of episodes, and holy (Antoni’s) guacamole, we’re already crying!
For starters, Queer Eye Season 2 will include eight episodes.
That’s the same number of episodes as the first, which many (easily) binged in one sitting. Even without an increased number of episodes, you’ll be happy to know that the show, which will once again take place in Georgia, will continue to feature diverse characters — because with Queer Eye, all things just keep getting better.
Will we get to see the Fab Five transform the life of a trans man? A nonbinary person? It would surely be a delight to see our favorite quintet help people across the board feel more comfortable with their identities, don’t you think? And by showcasing and connecting with a more diverse set of heroes, perhaps the show will make more and more people realize that we’re not so different after all.
Season 2 will also dive deeper into hot-button topics such as religion.
While it’s essentially a makeover show, Queer Eye does not hesitate to tackle topical issues like the Black Lives Matter movement and police brutality. In Episode 5, we even witnessed Bobby recount his story of growing up gay in a religious community; he revealed that the next season will further highlight that particular issue, as opposed to just being shown in one scene.
No official premiere date has been declared, but we can expect Season 2 to start streaming pretty soon. Why? BECAUSE ALL EPISODES HAVE ALREADY BEEN SHOT. “These we actually shot right at the tail of the first season, so they’ve already been shot and they’re ready to go,” Bobby divulged.
We can’t wait to see everything Season 2 has in store!
