Having rebooted Gilmore Girls, Arrested Development and Full House among other popular shows, Netflix casts its eye to reality TV next.

The streaming giant has ordered eight episode of 00s hit show Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, with the news series scheduled to begin production in the spring.

The format saw a straight man get a makeover from the gay Fab Five, who each had their own area of expertise: food and wine, grooming, interior design, fashion and pop culture/relationships/social interaction.

Sadly anyone hoping to see the return of original stars Carson Kressley, Ted Allen, Kyan Douglas, Thom Filicia, and Jai Rodriguez will be disappointed. They are being replaced with a new Fab Five, although reportedly the former cast may be involved with the show in some capacity.

The official Netflix logline reads: "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 Emmy Award winning Queer Eye is back and ready to Make America Fabulous Again. With a new Fab 5 and the show's toughest missions to date, Queer Eye moves from the Big Apple to turn the red states pink...one makeover at a time."

Original creator and executive producer David Collins will be at the helm once again, alongside executive producing partners Michael Williams and Rob Eric.

The original Queer Eye ran from 2003 to 2007. The eight-episode new season will premiere globally on Netflix.
