NBCU cable net Bravo has announced plans for a special that will reunite the cast of the ground-breaking Queer Eye for the Straight Guy series.

Queer Eye Reunion: 10 Years Later, to be hosted by Andy Cohen, is slated to air in October. The special will feature cast members Ted Allen, Kyan Douglas, Thom Filicia, Carson Kressley and Jai Rodriguez, and promises to “unveil behind-the-scenes secrets” and highlight how their lives have changed since the airing of the series.

The series made its debut on Bravo in 2003, and won the Emmy for outstanding reality series in 2004. Initially offering “make-betters” for straight men, the series, by its third season, started incorporating women and gay men as participants, leading to a shortening of its name to Queer Eye. Its last season was in 2007.

In other Bravo news, the network announced the premiere date for its new series, Thicker than Water, which follows the Tankard family from the Southern U.S. It’s slated for Sunday, November 10, at 9 p.m. EST/PST. November will also feature premieres of new seasons for The Real Housewives of Atlanta and Beverly Hills, Fashion Queens, Shahs of Sunset, and Vanderpump Rules.
