Since binging Queer Eye season four and Queer Eye: We're in Japan!, I've been anxiously waiting for the release date for season five of the Netflix series to be announced. That day finally came yesterday when it was announced on Instagram that Queer Eye will return on June 5! The fifth season will feature a whopping 10 episodes, more than any other season, and holding with tradition the show has moved to a new city.
This year, the Fab Five will be bestowing their bring their expertise in Philadelphia, also known as the City of Brotherly Love! What a perfect place to help people who need a little extra care in their lives. As reported by E! News, QE star Antoni Porowski recently sat down on Scott Tweedie's Instagram series, HappE! Hour, to talk about what fans can expect from this season in Philly.
The show's culinary expert revealed that he and his co-stars are "super excited" about the Philadelphia-based season and that Pennsylvania's most populous city was a great place to film. "When we were in Atlanta, it was a very cosmopolitan center, but we really filmed on the outskirts, in the smaller areas around. In Kansas City, also quite cosmopolitan, we were in the outskirts," he added. "With Philly, although we did go on the outskirts, we did a lot of proper downtown…sort of, showing that experience. And Philly's an incredibly diverse city."
I already couldn't be more excited for Queer Eye's June 5 return!
