Queer Eye Austin: Netflix series begins production of sixth season in ATX

Production of the sixth season of "Queer Eye" began this week in Austin.

AUSTIN, Texas — Can you believe? Austin just got way more fabulous!

Netflix announced Wednesday that its Emmy Award-winning series "Queer Eye" has officially begun production in the Lone Star State after being picked up for a sixth season.

"The Fab Five will return to their southern roots with a home base in Austin, Texas, where they will scour the prairie in a search for a whole new roster of heroes in need of a little TLC," Netflix said.

The series' fifth season, which was filmed in Philadelphia last year, will debut this summer.

"Queer Eye" follows the "Fab 5" – Antoni Porowski, Bobby Berk, Jonathan Van Ness, Karamo Brown and Tan France – as they travel to meet new people nominated by their loved ones for an emotionally charged makeover.

Netflix told KVUE in December it was casting in the Central Texas area. At the time, the streaming service said it was looking for "deserving people, couples, families, friends and coworkers within a 90-minute radius of Austin who could truly benefit from a 'make-better' from our Fab 5."
