Netflix’s Queer Eye begins production on season three


Get your guac ready! The Fab 5 of Queer Eye are coming back to Netflix next year for a new season of life-changing intervention-makeovers.

Queer Eye, the hit reality show, began production on its third season Monday, according to E! News. The series was renewed for another season by Netflix last week, one day after it received four Emmy nominations for its first season, which debuted in February.

The series is nominated for Outstanding Structured Reality Program as well as Outstanding Picturing Editing, Cinematography and Casting for a Reality Program. Queer Eye‘s second season dropped in June, after the window of eligibility for the 2018 Emmys race.

Bravo’s 2000s series Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, which inspired the Netflix show, received one Emmy for Outstanding Reality Program and was nominated for a second in the same category during its five-season run.

Since dropping its second season, Netflix’s Queer Eye has been expanding its search for “Heroes,” a term the show uses to refer to its makeover candidates. The series is normally based in and around Atlanta, Georgia, the location of the Fab Five’s loft.

Six days after season two was released, though, Netflix dropped a special episode “Yass, Australia!” — the actual name of the town in New South Wales, Australia where they filmed.  Given Queer Eye‘s penchant for using pop culture references in episode titles, perhaps it’s unsurprising that they chose the town to be their first international location.

According to E! News, season three will also begin in a new location, but one a bit closer to home: Kansas City, Missouri. Production is now underway with stars Bobby Berk, Karamo Brown, Jonathan Van Ness, Tan France and Antoni Porowski returning. The new season is set for a 2019 release.
