Can you believe? Queer Eye has been renewed for two more seasons and we love this news more than enjoying a delicious piece of avocado toast while sporting a French tuck and a face mask as we stare at our new décor and we think about all the emotional walls we’ve recently broken down. The core group of specialists, including fashion expert Tan France, hairstylist Jonathan Van Ness, culture expert Karamo Brown, home designer Bobby Berk, and chef (and token Canadian!) Antoni Porowski are all set to return for Seasons 4 and 5, with Netflix also announcing which cities the group will hit to instill their own brand of empowerment.
Season 4 will debut on the streaming service July 19, with the group returning to Kansas City where they shot the last season and helped redo the homes, wardrobes, and self esteem of a varied group of participants, including a man who lost his wife to cancer, a camp counsellor, and a father of three who works as a nurse. The show has not only helped participants on-screen, but off-screen as well, with fans raising $90,000 to send 23-year-old Jess Guilbeaux back to college after she was ostracized and cast out by her family for being gay. Following their episode, sisters Mary and Deborah Jones saw a huge spike in the sales of their barbecue sauce, with the pair now planning on selling their product internationally.
The next round of heroes will be from Philadelphia, with the five specialists set to take on the city of Brotherly Love together. The group has been celebrating the news of their renewal, posting messages of positivity on social media, because of course.
The beloved series instantly became a fan favourite when it began airing in 2018 as a revamped version of the 2003 cult favourite Queer Eye For The Straight Guy. The five largely unknown hosts (Brown had appeared on MTV’s Real World Philadelphia in 2004) quickly rose to fame following the release of the first season. Picking up multiple Emmy and GLAAD Awards since it premiered last year, the cast have been everywhere, from appearing on late night TV to their most recent cameo in Taylor Swift’s celeb-filled “You Need To Calm Down” music video.

No surprise, fans have been celebrating the news of the two-season renewal on social media, with the fab five becoming the cheerleaders that everyone needs in their life to make them feel like a Kelly Clarkson song.
