Netflix show giving queer makeover to (mostly) straight people filmed 4 new episodes in the Country of the Rising Sun. In a statement about the mini-series, titled Queer Eye: We’re in Japan!, Netflix envisions the episodes as a way to explore the Japanese culture – so strange, so weird, so unfamiliar to us, but so bright and interesting. The five hosts—food and wine specialist Antoni Porowski, interior design expert Bobby Berk, grooming master Jonathan Van Ness, culture guru Karamo Brown, and style authority Tan France— have already explored Tokyo and were deeply impressed by its food and the love and positive energy they get from the locals. Japanese fans of Queer Eye expressed their delight at hosting the Fab Five and let them know via social media that they are welcomed in Japan and it is a place where they are loved.
“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,” David Collins, creator and executive producer of Queer Eye said in a statement.
