Like it or not, the 2000s are getting the mainstream comeback no one asked for. The latest addition to the reboot lineup is Emmy Award-winning Queer Eye for the Straight Guy.
According to Entertainment Weekly, the former Bravo reality show will be "reimagined" with a new mission: "In a time when American stands divided and the future seems uncertain, a team of five brave me will try to bring us closer together with laughter, heart, and just the right amount of moisturizer," reads a statement for 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."
The original show, which ran from 2003-2007 was well-received and progressive for its time in terms of LGBTQ visibility and representation, winning the GLAAD award for Outstanding Reality Program in 2004 and 2005. The original Fab 5--Carson Kressley, Ted Allen, Thom Filicia, Kyan Douglas, and Jai Rodriguez--may have some involvement in the show, but details are still scarce. As long as they keep early 2000s style dead and buried, we welcome them back.
