Global streaming company Netflix has renewed Queer Eye for a second season.

Produced by Scout Productions and ITV Entertainment, the show will return with food expert Antoni Porowski; interior designer Bobby Berk; culture expert Karamo Brown; grooming expert Jonathan Van Ness; and fashion expert Tan France. The new season will follow the “Fab Five” as they advise a new group of men on fashion, grooming, food, culture and design.

David Collins, Rob Eric, Michael Williams and Jennifer Lane serve as executive producers. ITV Entertainment also produces the series with David George, David Eilenberg, Adam Sher and Jordana Hochman serving as executive producers.

Queer Eye is a modern reboot of Bravo’s Emmy Award-winning reality series Queer Eye for the Straight Guy which launched in 2003 and ran for five seasons on the NBCUniversal-owned cable network.

Elsewhere, Netflix has renewed an additional four unscripted series for sophomore runs.

Included in the reorder are the baking competition series Nailed It! from Magical Elves, in which home bakers with a terrible track record take a shot at re-creating edible masterpieces for a US$10,000 prize; Drug Lords from ITN Productions, which chronicles history’s most notorious narcotics kingpins; The Toys That Made Us from The Nacelle Company, in which the history’s behind the world’s most-iconic toy franchises are examined; and Wall to Wall Media’s docuseries Dope, which features a bracing look at the war on drugs from the perspective of dealers, users and the police.
