Queer Eye (German roughly “the queer eye”, “the queer look”) is an American reality TV show that started on February 7, 2018 on the video-on-demand provider Netflix . The series is a new edition of the television program of the same name (2003-2007) by the broadcaster Bravo , in which five queer experts (the so-called Fab Five , short for Fabulous Five - the "Fabulous Five") people on everyday issues of fashion, lifestyle and related topics to advise. The Fab Five include: Antoni Porowski , an expert on food and wine; Tan France , the fashion expert; Karamo Brown as an expert on culture and self-image; Bobby Berk , the design expert, and Jonathan Van Ness, the maintenance expert.


The episodes of the reality series always follow a similar pattern. The Fab Five receive a summary of a person who will accompany and advise them for a week in various areas of life (food and wine; fashion; culture; living; care). The Fab Five spend significantly more time with the candidates than in the original show, which should ensure a more intensive relationship. Although it is primarily about visual changes such as a new haircut or buying new items of clothing, deeper topics such as the appreciation of a candidate for himself or general social problems such as racism or homophobia are regularly addressed. The candidates are called Heroes . If there were only male heroes in the first season , an episode followed in the second season and several episodes with female heroes in the third season .


The first and second episodes were filmed in Atlanta , Georgia , although producer David Collins had planned the Ohio area as the location for the second season . The five main actors were selected in a casting in Los Angeles by a production team led by producer David Collins. Seasons 3 and 4 were filmed in and around Kansas City , Missouri . "Queer Eye - We're in Japan!" Was filmed in and around Tokyo , with Philadelphia , Pennsylvania being the location for season 5 . Season 6 will be filmed in Texas .

Episode list

All four seasons have eight episodes each. In addition, there was an episode that was released off-season and in which the Fab Five were active in the Australian outback . Season two had its own subtitle: Queer Eye - More than a makeover. The fourth season was published on July 19 on Netflix, on November 1, 2019 the spin-off "Queer Eye - We're in Japan!" Was published. Season 5 was released on June 5, 2020. Netflix announced in March 2020 that there will be a 6th season.
