So now “Queer Eye for the Straight Guy” is returning to Netflix

On the heels of the announcement that Will & Grace will be returning for ten new episodes, Netflix has decided to revive yet another gay-themed property: Queer Eye for the Straight Guy will be dragging itself up out of the soft cemetery sod to lumber blearily towards you in the not-so-distant future.

Now, millennial straight men can be schooled on the ins-and-outs of dressing better, shaving all fierce, decorating with decorum; all that sort of thing.

Here’s a snippet from the original press release:

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 — one makeover at a time.

There will be eight new episodes of the reboot, and a new assembly of “experts” — now referred to as the “Fab 5” — who will friskily and sassily parade through stranger’s homes and show them how they’re living their lives all wrong.

It’s been almost a decade since the original Bravo show went off the air.

    I always wanted a straight guy to give those queens a make over and turn them into men.

      Exactly… a show where a bunch of macho straight guys made some effeminate gay men into masc jocks? That would go over SO well lol

    I really liked the guy who redesigned people’s homes. He was awesome. Too bad he doesn’t appear in the remake.

    I hope they choose 5 screaming queens. The more flamboyant the better! They’re not teaching them baseball or cow roping, but hair, clothes and other things straight guys are unaware of doing right.

    I used to watch this show with my wife. I used to have very sexy feelings for Kyan and Tom. Now, I know why.
