You’ve been waiting patiently and now the big day is finally here: Netflix is releasing Queer Eye Season 5 just in time for the weekend. Clear your calendars (as if there’s anything on them) and make sure you’re stocked up on snacks because you won’t want to move from the couch all weekend long. I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait!
- The Fab 5 are in Philadelphia this season. Nothing like sending the Queer Eye guys to the City of Brotherly Love for Season 5! While there, they’ll be doing their best to change the lives of people who could really use an overhaul and I’m sure the results are going to be incredible.
- There are 10 episodes this season instead of 8. While the previous seasons of Queer Eye only gave us eight episodes, Season 5 is offering up 10 whole episodes of goodness to devour. That means two additional eps of Bobby Berk (interiors), Tan France (fashion), Antoni Porowski (food), and Jonathan Van Ness (grooming) and Karamo Brown (culture) bringing joy and good taste to people’s lives.
- Get the tissues ready because it’s going to be emotional. If you’ve watched Queer Eye before, you’re likely already familiar with just how emotional the episodes can be. This season, for instance, the guys meet up with a clergyman who’s struggling to come to terms with his gay identity. “I have struggled with my identity as a gay person,” he says in the trailer. “I feel like I can’t be the kind of leader in the church that I could be.” Ugh, break my heart, why don’t you?
- You can watch the whole season starting today. Netflix isn’t playing games with us here, thankfully. Instead of dropping chunks of episodes week by week, all 10 episodes of Queer Eye Season 5 are available to stream immediately from today. I don’t know about you, but I desperately needed a bit of good news.
