“Queer as Folk” Reboot in the Works at Bravo

Ready for one more trip down Canal Street?

Bravo is currently developing a reboot of Queer as Folk, but don’t pack your bags for Pittsburgh just yet!

The cable net is reportedly teaming up with creator Russell T. Davies to remake his original U.K. series, not the Showtime version.

Davies will serve as executive producer, along with Nicola Shindler, who executive produced the original series. Stephen Dunn, who directed 2015’s Closet Monster, is attached to write and executive produce as well.

According to Variety, QAF 2.0 will feature all new characters in a new setting. It’s being described as “a modern take on the original British series that centers on a group of club-going friends who find support in the gay community following a tragedy.”

The original British Queer as Folk ran from 1999-2000 for a total of 10 episodes—and two iconic soundtracks. No word on when the series will begin production or premiere, but this proves that Bravo will continue ramping up its original scripted programming after the success of Dirty John.

Although the revival will feature new characters, couldn’t Nathan make a cameo? After all, Charlie Hunnam has said he would be down.
 

I write about drag queens. Dolly Parton once ruffled my hair and said I was "just the cutest thing ever."
