Netflix has officially given the popular critically acclaimed series Queer Eye a third season order. Netflix also announced the third season will shoot in Kansas City, Missouri, with filming expected to get underway on July 16, 2018.
Season three of the Emmy-nominated series will consist of eight episodes hosted by Antoni Porowski (Food & Wine), Bobby Berk (Interior Design), Karamo Brown (Culture), Jonathan Van Ness (Grooming) and Tan France (Fashion). Queer Eye just received four Primetime Emmy nominations in the Structured Reality Program, Casting, Picture Editing and Cinematography categories.
Season two of Netflix’s Queer Eye currently sits at 90% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes. Slant’s Ed Gonzalez says, “The show’s strength isn’t in selling us a product, but rather in using its heroes to remind us of how to be more decent.” And Kat Brown from the Daily Telegraph believes “Queer Eye shines a light on the toxic environments that can lead to stagnancy and unhappiness, and cheerfully shows the viewer the tools to deal with them.”
According to the official announcement, fans of the reality series can expect season three to arrive in 2019.
David Collins, Michael Williams, and Rob Eric for Scout Productions serve as producers. Jennifer Lane is the series’ showrunner and executive produces along with David George, Adam Sher, David Eilenberg, and Jordana Hochman.
