Queer Eye is coming back for a third season, Netflix just announced. The streaming platform’s feel-good makeover show, a reboot of the original Queer Eye for the Straight Guy that aired on Bravo in the mid-aughts, will see the Fab Five relocate from Atlanta to Kansas City, Missouri.

The new season will span eight episodes, reports TV Line, and production is scheduled to begin this Monday, July 16. There’s no word on a potential premiere date, but it’s expected sometime next year.

Netflix introduced Planet Earth to the new Fab Five when Queer Eye’s first season dropped in February. With nearly universal positive reviews, a second season was released in June. In the first two installments, makeover experts Bobby Berk, Karamo Brown, Tan France, Antoni Porowski, and Jonathan Van Ness operated out of a hip Atlanta loft and traveled around the state of Georgia to transform Southerners into better versions of themselves. (In an online bonus episode, the guys took their roadshow the town of Yass, Australia. Yass.)

Whether Porowski, Queer Eye’s resident food-and-wine guru, can find a way to introduce avocados into Kansas City-style barbecue, remains to be seen.
