Antoni Porowski, one-fifth of the Queer Eye gang, has revealed some small details about the new series of the beloved Netflix show.
With no release date or trailer as of yet, the seventh season of the show is being kept secret by the streaming service, but this hasn’t stopped the food and wine expert of Queer Eye, Porowski, opening up as to what fans can expect from the show on Tom Daley’s podcast, Made With Love. Speaking on the podcast, Porowski revealed that he was none the wiser when it came to a release date: “Genuinely, and I’m not just saying this, I have no idea”.
Continuing, he added: “Netflix is incredibly secretive. We usually find out about two to three weeks before it happens, and then we figure out if we’re going to be doing press, how much of it in New York or LA, we get our assets and our little trailers and clips and stuff to post”.
Though he didn’t give too much away, he did state that they’d finished the new season, revealing: “It all pretty much happens in real time and then we’re left scrambling and just figuring it out. But there is a new season coming out…We filmed it in New Orleans this past summer, which was really great despite it being the height of hurricane season”.
In the very same podcast episode, Porowski also discussed how thrilled he was to initially come on board the Netflix show. Recalling the audition, he stated, “I just got like a chill down my spine because it was talking about my personal life and sexuality, and it wasn’t anything that I wanted to share with the public, but I was so afraid”.
