Entertainment Weekly is reporting that Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, Bravo's super popular, early 2000's, gay-themed reality makeover show, is going to make a triumphant return as Netflix reboot—and with an exciting, brand new twist.

Rumors of a Queer Eye return started swirling on the internet shortly after Carson Kressley, one of the original members of the Fab Five, alluded to it during an appearance on Watch What Happens Live earlier this month, and it looks like the rumors weren't in vain.

Although specific details are scarce, it looks like the reboot (which Netflix has already ordered eight episodes of) will feature a new set of five lifestyle experts who will help make over straight men in conservative states in an effort to try and help spread LGBT tolerance. It's a relevant new take on the original show, especially considering the nation's current political climate

"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," Queer Eye producers said in a statement to EW. "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."

We still have to wait for production to start and for a release date to be announced, but considering it's been 10 years since the original Bravo version went off the air, we'll be glad to wait just a little bit longer to have more Queer Eye back in our lives. (Hopefully the original Fab Five also has some involvement!!)
