Netflix’s ‘Queer Eye’ to head to Japan

Netflix will debut four episodes of “Queer Eye” filmed in Japan following the hit unscripted program’s third season later this year.

Announced on Wednesday, the four episodes of “Queer Eye: We’re in Japan!” will see the Fab Five — Antoni Porowski (Food & Wine), Bobby Berk (Interior Design), Jonathan Van Ness (Grooming), Karamo Brown (Culture) and Tan France (Fashion) — work with local tastemakers to improve the lives of four Japanese men and women from different backgrounds and cultures, while learning and experiencing local cuisine, fashion, design, grooming and culture firsthand.

“In just a year since we launched season one, Queer Eye has become a global phenomenon once again and the Fab Five are truly the ambassadors of self-care and compassion that the world needs now more than ever,” series creator and executive producer David Collins said in a statement. “Filming in Japan is a wonderful opportunity for us to work with four deserving heroes that will help showcase the incredible traditions and customs of their country.”

No release date for “Queer Eye: We’re in Japan!” has been announced, though it is currently slated to debut sometime in 2019 following the previously announced regular third season of “Queer Eye.”

“Queer Eye” is executive produced by Collins, Michael Williams and Rob Eric for Scout Productions. Jennifer Lane is showrunner and executive producer. David George, Adam Sher, David Eilenberg and Jordana Hochman executive produce for ITV Entertainment.
