There’s been a flood of Netflix announcements in the wake of Sundance, but at least one new series might sound familiar: Queer Eye for the Straight Guy. 

Entertainment Weekly reports that the early aughts Bravo show, in which gay men gave style-averse dad-bods a makeover, is getting an update on Netflix. A statement calls on America to come together for this: 

In a time when America stands divided and the future seems uncertain, a team of five brave men will try to bring us closer together with laughter, heart, and just the right amount of moisturizer.

The reboot will have five new hosts, and it opens up Netflix’s new venture into reality and competition shows: It just announced the release date for Ultimate Beastmaster, with host Sylvester Stallone.  

The new Queer Eye also wants to “turn the Red States pink—one makeover at a time.” A release date is forthcoming.
