Will the Fab Five return for another season? Here is everything we know so far about Queer Eye Season 8.
Since the much-awaited seventh season of Queer Eye premiered a few days ago on Netflix, fans have set their other plans aside and begun binge-watching all the episodes, with some already planning their weekend to catch up with this reality television series, which has enthralled viewers with its theme and unique idea!
Hence, it makes sense why the loyal viewers who have already streamed the new episodes are eagerly waiting and raising the most asked question, “Will there be an eighth season or not?” all over social media. So, if you’re wondering the same thing, then you’ve come to the correct place, as we at Web News Observer have gathered all the information for you right here.
Let’s look at what has been revealed about Queer Eye’s status for an eighth season on Netflix.
Queer Eye Season 8: Is it renewed or canceled?
Despite being a fairly well-known reality television series on Netflix with over seven successful seasons, there has been no official announcement from the network regarding the renewal of the show. We assume that it’s only been a few days since the new season premiered. Hence, it is impossible for the network to assess the show’s overall reception before confirming its approval for additional seasons.
Especially when the chances of ending the series are high, as many major networks have started cost-cutting and scrapping reality shows. So, if the show is able to perform remarkably well by maintaining the overall reception and viewership around the world in the coming weeks, just like the prior seasons have achieved, then the series might survive and be considered to be greenlit for an eighth season.
The decision also comes down to the hands of the show creators, whether or not they see enough interest from viewers to justify another season. There is a chance that the network may opt to announce the renewal within a month or two after the premiere if it is able to maintain its position in the top 10 charts and gather good viewership for the next two weeks, which are crucial for evaluation.
Therefore, we advise readers to pay greater attention to social media to get information once the renewal is official.
Queer Eye Season 8: If renewed, when will it premiere?
As mentioned above, the renewal hasn’t been approved, hence the network has not set a release date yet. But if we have to speculate, then we are hopeful that we’ll get Queer Eye Season 8 at some point in early 2024 if the locations are selected by the crew on time in order to begin the production.
Of course! This is just conjecture, and the exact premiere date will be confirmed in the coming months by Netflix once the renewal is confirmed.
