We've got something to tell you, and it's guaranteed to cheer up your lockdown mood...
The fifth season of the show will be arriving on the streaming platform on 5th June and this time, the Fab Five will be in Philadelphia.
Yup, Bobby Berk (aka interior design guru), Karamo Brown (who specialises in culture), Tan France (fashion), Antoni Porowski (food and wine expert) and Jonathan Van Ness (grooming) will be dishing out their expertise in a new location, with previous seasons having been set in New York and Atlanta.
The Fab Five will be forging relationships with 10 new men and women from a range of different backgrounds, with the series touching on everything from LGBTQ rights to how to make a mouthwatering farm-to-table guacamole.

In case you're unfamiliar with the show, it follows the Fab Five as they transform people's lives, from fashion, to grooming, their homes, culture *and* their culinary expertise.
Speaking to Entertainment Weekly about the upcoming series, Antoni explained: "With Philadelphia, it's a lot more cosmopolitan than the outskirts of Atlanta - even though we filmed in Atlanta, and we were really along the periphery in Kansas City as well.
"With Philly, we do have a lot more downtown stories and you kind of get to speak to that experience. And with cities like that, there's always an incredible amount of diversity, so there are very different stories and perspectives not only culturally but also age-wise."
Earlier this year, Netflix confirmed a Season 5 *and* Season 6 of Queer Eye.
However, like many other TV shows, the production of Queer Eye has been affected by the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
Antoni explained that while working on Season 6 (which is believed to be taking part in Texas), the team have had to take a step back from filming, after only getting through one episode.
Fingers crossed it doesn't delay Season 6 too much, but in the meantime, we just can't wait to get cracking with Season 5.
The date is officially in the diary...
