“Queer As Folk” is Getting a Reboot

Gale Harold and Randy Harrison in "Queer as Folk"

2019 is getting queer, folks.

With all the reboots underway, British series Queer As Folk seems to have been caught up in the wave.

The original series, created by Russell T. Davies and featuring Aidan Gillen, Charlie Hunnam, and Craig Kelly, was regarded as revolutionary for the LGBTQ community’s representation in television, despite only airing 10 episodes between 1999 and 2000.

The subsequent American remake, starring Gale Harold, Randy Harrison, Hal Sparks, Peter Paige, and Scott Lowell, proved far more popular, running for 5 seasons.

Davies is expected to serve as executive producer of the new version which will be made by Bravo and feature new characters in a new setting that is unlikely to be either Manchester or Pittsburgh like its predecessors.
