The Queer Eye kids are heading to Japan! Netflix revealed Wednesday via its See What's Next Twitter account that the reality show will be debuting a four-episode Japan special after the debut of its third season. Per Netflix, in the special, "The Fab Five will work with local tastemakers to make-better a new group of heroes, while they learn and experience Japanese cuisine, fashion, design, grooming and culture firsthand."
Jonathan Van Ness, the grooming expert on the show, posted a photo on Instagram Wednesday with the caption: "Brb America, she went to Japan with her sisters."
Bobby Berk, Antoni Porowski, Karamo Brown, and Tan France all shared similar announcements on Instagram and Instastory — they appear to be in Japan right now filming.
This announcement comes after Netflix debuted the reality show Tidying Up with Marie Kondo, a Queer Eye-esque show about decluttering. Kondo, a Japanese organizational expert, went into families homes and employed her famous decluttering strategy. Of course, Tidying Up took place largely in the U.S., not in Japan — but who's to say Queer Eye's Japan special won't do a Marie Kondo crossover? Netflix does love reusing its stars.
