The curtain has been pulled back on the reimagined new series of Queer As Folk as the first trailer has been dropped by US streamer Peacock.
Relocating from Pittsburgh to New Orleans, the new series explores the lives of a diverse community of LGBTQ+ individuals whose lives are altered following a tragedy. The trailer takes a look into the world of the city’s queer clubbing scene and the private lives of characters played by series stars Devin Way, Fin Argus, Jesse James Keitel, CG, Johnny Sibilly and Ryan O’Connell.
“Like most queer ‘90s kids, I had a unique relationship with the original ‘Queer as Folk.’ Growing up, I was desperate for any sort of connection with people like me. It was the first time I really felt seen,” showrunner Stephen Dunn said in a statement.
“The show offered a new paradigm — one where we could accept and celebrate queer love, families, and communities on a global stage.”
“I’m very proud of what we achieved in 1999, but in queer years, that was a millennium ago!” Davies said.
“As a community, we’ve radicalized, explored, opened up and found new worlds — with new enemies and new allies — and there was so much to be said… I thought it was about time the title belonged to a whole new generation. The 2022 show is more diverse, more wild, more free, more angry — everything a queer show should be.”
“Queer as Folk” debuts on Peacock in the US on June 9. Releases for the rest of the world are still to be decided.
