Queer as Folk

It's been over 20 years since the first episode of the British LGBTQ+ drama Queer as Folk aired. And if you've been pining for some new episodes of the cult-favorite series, then your nostalgic heart is in luck — because the Queer as Folk reboot is coming to Peacock and it's bringing a modern spin with it. 

In honor of Pride Month, Peacock will debut the Queer as Folk reboot on June 9. While the original Queer as Folk show only had an 8-episode run, the new Queer as Folk revival is set to highlight more modern issues in the LGBTQ+ community — all while bringing together an array of authentic characters that all viewers can relate to.

Sign Up for Peacock

Created, directed and co-written by Stephen Dunn, Queer as Folk follows a group of friends who survive a traumatic shooting at a popular gay club. The series doesn't just parallel real-life events, such as the Pulse shooting  — it also allows its characters to be complicated and messy. Dunn tells ET, "The series is about people who live vibrant, vital, unapologetically queer lives."

The cast includes Johnny Sibillly, Special star Ryan O'Connell, Kim Cattrall, Jesse James Keitel, Nyle DiMaro, Fin Argus and more.

Here's everything to know about how, when and where to watch the new Queer as Folk reboot.
