Proving that “things just keep getting better,” Netflix has announced the release date for the second season of its rebooted Queer Eye — and it’s much sooner than we expected!

The first seasons of the makeover show debuted in February to critical acclaim and adoration on social media, thanks to strong chemistry between the new Fab Five and a focus on helping the show’s subjects feel better about all aspects of their lives.

If you’ve been impatiently waiting for Netflix to update that “New episodes coming soon” banner, we’ve got great news: Queer Eye season two will debut June 15th!

And yes, that’s a Friday, which means a whole weekend to binge all eight episodes. Can you believe?

Unsurprisingly, Bobby Berk, Karamo Brown, Tan France, Antoni Porowski, and Jonathan Van Ness will all be returning for the second season to keep teaching people how to be their best self.

“This season, the Queer Eye Fab Five return to the Georgia heartland,” Netflix said in a press release, “forging connections with communities from a wide array of backgrounds and beliefs often contrary to their own, touching on everything from self-love and faith, to immigration and how to make the perfect homemade poke bowls and more.”

According to Entertainment WeeklyQueer Eye Season 2 will break from tradition and will feature “the show’s first female and first trans male subjects.”
