Bravo’s campy reality hit Queer Eye For The Straight Guy was a landmark of mid-2000s TV. The series massively upped the visibility of gay men in pop culture, tearing open closets and dumping out the crappy, style-poor hetero clothes within. Now—like its fellow gay visibility booster, Will And Grace—Queer Eye is coming back, courtesy of Netflix.

Deadline reports that the streaming service is working on a reboot of the popular style show, which ran from 2003 to 2007 on Bravo. Netflix is currently scouting around for a new quintet of style critics to tear the poorly dressed of the world apart (but in a nice, slightly stereotypical, camera-friendly way). The show’s ad copy also carries a notably political tone: apparently, the new series is “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.” The eight new episodes of Queer Eye are set to start filming in the spring.
