Queer As Folk wants you to get as defiant, sexy, bold, resilient, vibrant, punk, wild, messy, blazing, ecstatic, loving, angry, joyful, and queer as possible.
Though poet and popstar Dua Lipa once said, “If you’re under him, you ain’t getting over him,” the first trailer for the highly-anticipated, modern reboot of the beloved '00s series subverts that idea with the motto, “The best way to get over someone is by getting under someone else.”
But the trailer also makes it clear that this reboot isn’t just about sex, love, friendships, and heartbreak. We’re introduced to characters that fans have been looking forward to meeting on Peacock’s Queer As Folk, such as Brodie (Devin Way), Ruthie (Jesse James Keitel), Mingus (Fin Argus), Shar (Candace Grace), Julian (Ryan O’Connell), and Noah (Johnny Sibilly). Notable guest stars who also appear in the trailer include Nyle DiMarco (as Leo), Benito Skinner (as Jack Cole Jordan), Juliette Lewis (as Judy), and Kim Cattrall (as Brenda).
Created and directed by Stephen Dunn, produced by Russell T. Davies (creator of the original British series Queer As Folk), and written by Jaclyn Moore (Love Life, Dear White People), this reboot is set to reimagine the world of Queer As Folk within the scope of LGTBQ+ culture in 2022. The original American version of Queer As Folk aired on Showtime for five seasons between 2000 and 2005. Now, an entirely new generation will get to experience Queer As Folk during what is a very different time for LGBTQ+ folks in the U.S. and around the world.
