The sixth season of Netflix’s “Queer Eye” might not have a release date yet, but the Emmy-winning, and now nominated again, production team says it is their favorite season so far.
“You know how the song says, ‘Thing’s keep getting better?’ Each of you is a standout in Season 6. We have an incredible season coming up,” executive producer Jennifer Lane said to her hosts during the show’s Variety Streaming Room, presented by Netflix.
Tan France said Season 6, set in Austin, Texas was transformative. “Season 6 galvanized me. I haven’t felt that in quite some time doing any project. It felt really big. The show felt big this season, and I don’t know how else to articulate it. It felt different and felt big. It felt like we were serving a greater purpose than just one singular person each episode.”
“Queer Eye,” which makes over everyday “heroes,” always delivers emotional moments, which made host Bobby Berk question if he had any more fuel in the tank. “To be frank, I had zero emotion left,” he said. “I’m like, ‘There’s no way I’m gonna cry…’ but I don’t think Antoni and I lasted five minutes this season before we were both in tears on our first episode.”
