- Netflix officially confirmed Queer Eye Season 8, unsurprising given its popularity and cultural impact.
- Scheduling conflicts with the busy cast members may delay the release of Queer Eye Season 8, but the Fab Five remain committed to the show.
- Queer Eye Season 8 will premiere on Netflix on January 24, 2024, following the show’s typical fall/spring release pattern.
Queer Eye, a reboot of the Bravo original Queer Eye For The Straight Guy, has been a staple on Netflix since its 2018 premiere, leaving curiosity about when the next season will hit the streaming platform. Starring five experts in various fields, Queer Eye offers something more than just a makeover. As Antoni Porowski, Bobby Berk, Jonathan Van Ness, Karamo Brown, and Tan France work with some of the most interesting people in each city they visit, they invigorate their lives with new flavors, fashions, and fundamentals. Always trying to spread a message of hope and happiness, the new Fab Five made waves in the years they’ve been on the show.
While Queer Eye hasn’t typically been a difficult choice for renewal on Netflix, the show has gained traction in the last several years as one of the most feel-good series on the platform, making it one of the best reality TV shows. Giving a voice to so many who have felt voiceless, Queer Eye is an empowering series that celebrates everyone, no matter what. With incredible messaging, an exciting cast, and a considerable following, Netflix would be wrong not to invest in Queer Eye for as long as people continue to watch it. Though Queer Eye season 7 aired in 2023, viewers might already be wondering when they’ll be able to watch the next installment.
Queer Eye Season 8 News
- Release Date
- February 7, 2018
On November 13, 2023, Netflix announced Queer Eye season 8 would premiere on January 24, 2024. Season 8 will again occur in New Orleans, and season 9 will bring the Fab Five to Las Vegas. Additionally, Queer Eye will be Bobby’s last season with the Fab Five. After talking to the cast about the potential for another season, it was reported by Bustle that Bobby shared that “it can be difficult” to get the entire cast in one place to film a season. He hasn’t revealed a reason for leaving after season 8 but assured fans they would still be seeing him.
The Fab Five are committed to making the show for as long as possible. All the cast members have thoroughly enjoyed helping people and using their skills. However, they’ve also experienced increased popularity, leading to busy schedules that are difficult and sometimes impossible to coordinate. This difficulty may be what prompted Bobby to part ways after season 8.
Is Queer Eye Season 8 Confirmed?
Netflix confirmed Queer Eye seasons 8 and 9 on November 13, 2023. Queer Eye has become a cultural classic, with people from all walks of life watching the series since its premiere in 2018. Bringing people together and inviting sometimes difficult conversations, the Queer Eye cast has been authentic, open, and honest throughout the show’s run. The Fab Five remains incredibly popular both on and off the air. However, there’s no news of who will replace Bobby in season 9.
Queer Eye Season 8’s Release Date
Queer Eye season 8 will premiere on January 24, 2024 on Netflix. For the duration of the series, Queer Eye has run in a fall/spring fashion, meaning they air one season during the fall and another during the spring or early summer. The most recent seasons aired in December and May, respectively, so the premiere date of season 8 approximately follows the winter season release.
Queer Eye Season 8’s Potential Cast
Though the cast members of Queer Eye season 8 won’t be revealed until the season is released, the Fab Five are all returning for season 8. Tan hosts another Netflix series, Next In Fashion, while Jonathan and Antoni have a pet supplement brand to keep them busy, but the Fab Five always seems ready for another adventure. Bobby shared in November 2023 that season 8 will be his last, meaning there will be a new member of the Fab Five in season 9.
Since many of their seasons have taken place in the Midwest, South, or East Coast, it could have been fun for the Fab Five to hit the Pacific Northwest, but Netflix revealed the cast will return to New Orleans for season 8. However, season 9 will bring the Fab Five to Las Vegas. With Queer Eye still a cultural phenomenon even years after it first aired, January 24, 2024 can’t come soon enough.
Queer Eye season 8 will premiere on January 24, 2024 on Netflix.
