Some first look images have been released from the new Peacock series ‘Queer As Folk’, which is a reimagined version of the hit British series of the same name from Russell T. Davies, follows the lives of a diverse group of friends in New Orleans whose lives are transformed in the aftermath of a tragedy.
Billed as “a vibrant reimagining of the groundbreaking British series,” the new QaF is decidedly more diverse and non-binary, starring Devin Way (Grey’s Anatomy, Station 19), Fin Argus (Clouds, The Gifted), Jesse James Keitel (Big Sky), CG (Acts of Crime), Johnny Sibilly (Hacks, Pose), and Ryan O’Connell (Special, Will & Grace).
Creator, executive producer, writer, and director Stephen Dunn had a “unique relationship” with the original QaF and wanted to do it justice while also speaking to the realities in which queer people currently live.
“I wanted to create a new groundbreaking version of this show for this moment. Our new Queer as Folk is set in New Orleans — one of the most unique queer communities in North America — and I am immensely proud that the new series is comprised of an electric ensemble of fresh characters that mirror the modern global audience,”
The show will also feature a cavalcade of guest stars including Kim Cattrall, Juliette Lewis, Ed Begley, Jr., Lukas Gage, and Nyle DiMarco.
Queer as Folk premieres exclusively on Peacock on June 9th.
