The original Queer Eye for the Straight Guy was a TV phenom at the turn of the century, debuting on Bravo in July 2003 - the year before MA became the first state to recognize same-sex marriage.
Fresh off its four Primetime Emmy Award nominations - for Outstanding Structured Reality Program, with additional nods for casting, cinematography and picture editing - Netflix is renewing it for a third season, TVLine has learned.
But unlike the first two seasons, which were based in Atlanta, the show's third outing will send the Fab Five to Kansas City, Mo., to teach a new crop of Americans how to be the best versions of themselves.
Van Ness posted a video Thursday on his Instagram account that features him processing the news as his "Queer Eye" castmates Bobby Berk, Karamo Brown, Tan France and Antoni Porowski congratulate him.
Cameras will roll on season 3 of the Queer Eye revival just one day after the 15th anniversary of the original Queer Eye for the Straight Guy's July 15, 2003 broadcast debut.
Seasons 1 and 2 of Queer Eye reboot are streaming now on Netflix.
