The fabulous five has been changed lives and made Netflix viewers cry happy tears on Queer Eye since the premiere of its reboot in 2018. But unlike other television shows from the film industry, this reality TV favourite has been impacted by ongoing pandemic.
As a result of this COVID-19 situation Queer Eye season 6 has been delayed. Despite of long wait between seasons, the streamer remains dedicated to bring more of the show’s beautiful stories to fans because it is now safe to resume the filming of the show.
Like original incredible show Queer of Eye focuses on improving life of people through makeover. But the new incarnation of the fab five will go far beyond fashion for helping the everyday people or heroes which are profiled in each episode.
The people who are spotlighted are encouraged to enrich their lives by focusing on their mental health, updating their homes as well as wardrobe and style with the help of Bobby berk, Karamo Brown, Tan Fance, Antoni Powski and Jonathan Van Ness.
Every season observes the fab five visits a new location and so they have seen everywhere like from small towns big cities. And it includes outside of Atlanta to Japan.
One the sixth season finally get premiered you can expect the guys to take a brand new town by storm but still the question is in air that- when they will return to work?
When Will Queer Eye Season 6 Airs on Netflix?
Well, fans are expecting to have two season every years since its launch in 2018. One season releases in winter and another in summer or early fall. Fifth season of the show has been dropped in June 2020. Therefore if it is a normal year then we can expect to release season 6 in next couple of months.
Unfortunately, there is nothing normal about such unpredictable times.
Revealing the Release Date –
In an interview with Purewow in July 2020, Berk has revealed that, the show is in the early stages of production in Austin, Texas in the last March. At that time city was Locked down due to COVID pandemic. He said that –
“We were filming season six when all this hit,” he said. “We got through one episode in Austin. And then, unfortunately, everyone got quarantined, so we had to stop filming. But at some point this year, we’ll be back.”
Unfortunately, the pandemic prevented the Queer Eye team from returning to filming in 2020, and in November, Berk shared an update with Showbiz Cheat Sheet that suggested fans are in for a long wait for season 6. “Our show is not filmed on a set,” he explained. “We’re out there in real life, in stores and restaurants, and salons. Interacting with people in public. So it’s impossible to keep talent, crew, and heroes safe … But luckily, what we’ve been hearing is there’s a vaccine on the near horizon and once that’s out we can probably get back to work in a good way.”
Eventually he was right because the vaccines are now rolling and as per a January 29th tweet from Berk, the cast and crew is back on location Austin, Texas and fortunately new season is on its way. Since then the production is going so well.
At the april end, the official instagram account for the show has revealed the news of production by posting filming photos.
Sadly, we still don’t have an official release date of Queer Eye season 6. We hope that the series will come back on Netflix by the end of 2022.
What Will Be Cast of Queer Eye Season 6?
Due to delay in production, the fab five have bee keeping busy with their own projects. But we can assume return of an entire cast in this upcoming Queer Eye season 6. So the cast of the show is as follows-
- Antoni Porowski– “Food and Wine”, expert on alcohol, beverages, food preparation, and presentation
- Bobby Berk– “Design”, expert on interior design and home organization
- Jonathan Van Ness– “Grooming”, expert on hair, grooming, personal hygiene, and makeup
- Karamo Brown– “Culture and Lifestyle”, expert on popular culture, relationships and social interaction
- Tan France– “Fashion”, expert on clothing, fashion, and personal styling
On the other hand, to say anything about new cast who will pop up in the show its too early. Also in previous seasons the show has introduced fans to some unforgettable people which include Tammye, Queer Eye’s first female hero and Tom, who has reunited with ex wife in first season.
But now, viewers need to be patient as they need to wait for show to resume production and introduce the next batch of heroes to the globe.

Berk Interview –
“I can’t talk enough about how great Austin is,” Berk told PureWow. “Sadly, I was only there about a week and a half before the city got shut down, but it’s such a beautiful city. It’s so green. It’s such an outdoor city. It very much reminded me of L.A.”
He also gushed about the food scene, which he’s excited to dive into when he returns. “The food scene there is just amazing,” he said. “I’m originally from Texas — I’m from Houston. And this is no knock on Houston, even though it is a knock on Houston: Austin’s just the best city in Texas. It really is.”
Of course, Texas has been in the news a lot recently for some not-so-fabulous reasons. In a February interview with Bustle, Jonathan Van Ness mentioned the recent devastation. As a result of a rare cold snap that knocked out power for millions across the Lone Star State, and how it might play into their plans for season 6.
“I think especially in light of what’s going on in Texas now, there’s gonna be a lot of homes that need help, a lot of people that need help. So I think we definitely have our work cut out for us,” he said. “Texas needs some love and needs some hope and some TLC. It’s been a really difficult time for everyone there. And I’m really excited for us to be able to get back when it’s safe enough to. And there are definitely plans for us to do so.”
