Bobby Berk Says Upcoming Queer Eye Episodes 'Might Be Our Best Season Yet' as He Prepares for Emmy Awards Queer Eye is a reboot of the Bravo series of the same name. The Emmy-winning series made its Netflix debut in 2018. Production on season 6 began in March 2020 before the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result, filming for the upcoming season was put on hold. Ilana Panich-Linsman/Netflx Berk, 40, told Entertainment Weekly the group was able to "recharge and re-energize" amid the extended hiatus from filming. "It also just made us realize the value of the connections that we had, and the good that our show does, and the effect that it has on people's lives and the value of hugging and those human connections that we had lost over the year," he said. "I think the pandemic has had that effect on a lot of people — it's reconnected us with what's really important in the world: the people in our lives and the good that we can go out there and do." France, 38, previously said the show's sixth season is "a really special one."
