The design expert made the surprising announcement on social media.

It’s the end of a Queer Eye era.

Bobby Berk, the interior design expert on the popular Netflix reality makeover series Queer Eye, has announced that he is leaving the show after its upcoming eighth season.

Berk has been a part of Netflix’s Fab Five since the reboot of the reality series began back in 2018. He worked alongside Antoni Porowski, Jonathan Van Ness, Karamo Brown, and Tan France to help people find their best selves and learn to love who they are.

Berk made his announcement on X (formerly Twitter) earlier today, sending a message to “the Queer Eye community.”

“The love that I have received from you all over the last 6 years has been absolutely surreal. You have tuned in and been dedicated fans and together we were able to share the healing powers of design,” he wrote. “I learned from you all about kindness, love and acceptance, and that has changed my life for the better. The way you have embraced me and accepted me for who I am is something that I will truly carry with me for the rest of my life.”

He also thanked fans of the show who have shared their stories with him about how the show has touched their lives, but saved a special thank you for the people he helped on the show.

“To all our wonderful, loving, amazing, and brave heroes there is so much I want to say and so much gratitude I want to express to you all for letting me into your homes and hearts,” he said. “It’s all because of you that I’ve kept going all these years and each and every one of you have changed me for the better.”

“It’s with a heavy heart that I announce that season 8 will be my final season on Queer Eye. It’s not been an easy decision to be at peace with, but a necessary one. Although my journey with Queer Eye is over, my journey with you is not. You will be seeing more of me very soon,” he closed out. “I love you all so so much and I’ll meet you all in Nola for one final season.”

Just like season 7, season 8 of the Netflix show, taking place in New Orleans, will debut on the streamer on January 24, 2024. Netflix has also renewed the show for a 9th season in Las Vegas. The first seven seasons are currently streaming.
