Each season of Queer Eye typically focuses on a slice of rural life in the US. Seasons one and two were filmed in Georgia. Seasons three and four took the Fab 5 to Missouri, Kansas and Illinois. Season five had them averting disasters in New Jersey and Pennsylvania, and season six focused exclusively on Texas.

In addition to the US, Queer Eye has also gone international with 2018’s Yass, Australia! special and 2019’s Tokyo miniseries.

In between production for the series, the Fab 5 have each been busy with their own individual pursuits. After months of guest-hosting Maury, Karamo is getting his own daytime talk show this fall. Antoni is pursuing an acting career in the upcoming gay drama Spoiler Alert, and he will also host a new Netflix competition show Easy-Bake Battle. Jonathan’s podcast “Getting Curious” was adapted into a Netflix show of the same name. Bobby was unmasked on The Masked Singer last year. And Tan has been busy co-hosting Next in Fashion for Netflix.

The premiere date for season seven is still under wraps, but filming is in progress as of this week.
