The newest season of Netflix's "Queer Eye" is streaming on Netflix, and it’s already received positive reception so far.

This season is focused on self-love and confidence and stars the “Fab Five,” which are five LGBTQ+ men with different perspectives and gifts.

They each work with guests who struggle to get in touch with their confidence, and they work with them to show them what they have to offer and bring out the good.

The “Fab Five” are Antoni Porowski (Food and Wine), Bobby Berk (Interior Design), Jonathan Van Ness (Grooming), Karamo Brown (Culture), and Tan France (Fashion).

The show is a reboot of an early 2000s Bravo reality show,"Queer Eye for the Straight Guy," and the first season of the reboot debuted in 2018, reaching a huge amount of success on Netflix. The reboot changed the name to "Queer Eye" because they focus on doing makeovers on more than just straight men. 

Brown told E! News, season 3 focuses even more on women, even featuring the show’s first makeover of a lesbian woman.

The new season is set in Georgia and Missouri, and some guests include a corrections officer, an outdoorsman, a man who is grieving the loss of his spouse, a gamer, a pair of sisters, and a man who’s preparing for his wedding.

In another interview with E! News, Antoni Porowski said season 3 is just as emotional as past seasons, if not more emotional. 

“Inclusivity and diversity continues to be the focus of our MO, of what we’re out there to do,” Porowski said. “I think people are going to see a lot of differences in Kansas City, but they’re going to see maybe more and understand a little more clearly that we are all the same, our struggles are the same, to show up for our families, to be better lovers, friends, parents children, like these are all human experiences. It doesn’t matter which coast or which country you’re in, it’s all something you can relate to.”

Fans are also loving the new sixth member of the Fab Five, a french bulldog named Bruley. The new season is streaming on Netflix, as of March 15.
