Queer Eye Season 4: Premiere Date, Cast, Trailer, Plot & News

Emmy Award winning Bravo television show ‘Queer Eye for the Straight Guy’ is currently enjoying its second innings after Netflix rebooted the show in 2018 under a shorter and more broadly acceptable name, ‘Queer Eye’. Season 1 of the reality television show was released by Netflix on February 7, 2018, and just months later, Netflix followed it up with Season 2, which released on June 15, 2018.

Both the seasons of ‘Queer Eye’ received outstanding responses from critics and audiences alike, and without delaying any further, Netflix announced on July 13, 2018 that ‘Queer Eye’ would be making a comeback with a third season. With a successful Season 3, now, the question is whether the immensely popular show will make a return again with Season 4.

Queer Eye Cast: Who is in it?

For those unaware, ‘Queer Eye’, like the original show, features five central “make better” experts known as the “Fab Five”. However, Netflix’s reboot features a different Fab Five that the experts who were present in the original show.

In ‘Queer Eye’, the Fab Five consists of food and wine expert Antoni Porowski, fashion expert Tan France, culture and lifestyle expert Karamo Brown, design expert Bobby Berk, and grooming expert Jonathan Van Ness. Other people who are seen in the show include the people who the Fab Five go around helping.  The current Fab Five have been around from Season 1, and it is expected that all of them will be making a comeback for Season 4 as well, if and when Netflix announces a renewal.

Queer Eye Plot: What is it about?

For the uninitiated, ‘Queer Eye’ tracks the Fab Five as they travel to small towns all over the world to try and make people’s lives better. The show is premised on the stereotype that gay men are experts in matters of lifestyle, fashion, culture, grooming etc., and the Fab Five typically help emotionally troubled, lonely heterosexual men get a makeover (“make better” as the show calls) so that they can turn their social lives around. Not only do the Fab Five help the “nominees” with grooming and wardrobe makeovers, they also help the beneficiaries inculcate better community values, and usher in important, healthy lifestyle changes. Every now and then, the show also sees the Fab Five help women and transgender people make their lives better.

In Seasons 1 and 2, we saw the Fab Five helping people in and around Atlanta, Georgia. After two seasons of helping people out in the area, Season 3 will see the five gay men go about their work in Kansas City, Missouri. Further, it appears that Season 3 will also be a season of firsts for the show – it is set to feature the first duo and the first lesbian couple the Fab Five has worked with.

In terms of reception, ‘Queer Eye’ seems to have blown everyone away. When Season 1 first premiered, television critics loved the reboot – Season 1 is “Certified Fresh” on Rotten Tomatoes and enjoys a whopping score of 97%. Season 2, in comparison, was not as popular – while it too is “Certified Fresh” on Rotten Tomatoes, it has a relatively lower score of 85%. Overall, ‘Queer Eye’ enjoys a 91% score on Rotten Tomatoes.

Netflix’s reboot has also been a massive hit with audiences, and as opposed to the original show’s 6/10 rating on IMDb, ‘Queer Eye’ has an impressive rating of 8.4/10 on IMDb.

Yet, that’s not all. The show has also been nominated for multiple Emmy Awards, and like its predecessor, has also won several. It was nominated for four Primetime Creative Arts Emmy Awards in 2018, and went on to win in three categories – Outstanding Structured Reality Program, Outstanding Casting for a Reality Program, and Outstanding Picture Editing for a Structured or Competition Reality Program.

Queer Eye Season 4 Release Date: When will it premiere?

The Season 3 of the show released on March 15, 2019. We cannot expect to hear any news about Season 4 anytime soon. However, considering the reception that previous seasons received, there’s no reason for Netflix to not renew the show.  Apart from being a hit with audiences and critics, the show could also add to Netflix’s collection of awards, considering the fact that ‘Queer Eye’ has already bagged three Emmys. We will of course be keeping an eye out for news pertaining to Season 4, and we’ll update this section with relevant information once the same emerges. So, do check back to stay in the loop.

Queer Eye Season 3 Trailer:

We will update this section with the trailer for Season 4, once Netflix (hopefully) announces a renewal, and releases the trailer for the same. So, stay tuned.
