Queer Eye's Fab Five head to Japan for special episodes

They will stream on Netflix after the third season of Queer Eye.

Queer Eye’s Fab Five are heading to Japan for four special episodes.

Netflix’s makeover show – hosted by Antoni Porowski, Karamo Brown, Jonathan Van Ness, Tan France, and Bobby Berk – will travel to the East Asian country after its third season starts streaming later this year.

Titled Queer Eye: We’re in Japan!, the episodes will see the hosts “work with local tastemakers to make-better a new group of heroes” while sampling Japanese culture, fashion and cuisine.

David Collins, Queer Eye creator, said: “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.

“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.”

Queer Eye is a reboot of Queer Eye For The Straight Guy, which aired from 2003 to 2007.

It featured five gay men giving a straight man a makeover. The reboot – which started streaming on Netflix last year – was shortened to Queer Eye to show its broadened scope.

The new episodes focuses on women and trans “heroes” as well as men.
