The pioneering LGBTQ series “Queer as Folk” is returning to the small screen.

NBCUniversal’s streaming network Peacock announced Thursday that it had ordered a “vibrant reimagining” of the original British series. The reboot, it added, will center on a “diverse group of friends in New Orleans whose lives are transformed in the aftermath of a tragedy.” (Peacock and NBC News share the same parent company, Comcast NBCUniversal.)

The original U.K. series, created by Russell T. Davies, chronicled the lives of three gay friends living in Manchester’s gay village. It ran from 1999 to 2000 and included just 10 episodes. Davies will be an executive producer on the reboot.

An American version premiered on Showtime just a year after the British original’s debut and centered on a group of gay and lesbian friends living in Pittsburgh. That series, which addressed issues such as same-sex marriage and HIV/AIDS, ran for five seasons, ending in 2005.

The reboot was created by Stephen Dunn, who will be a writer and the executive producer of the series, and will direct the pilot. Dunn called it a “surreal honor to adapt the notoriously groundbreaking series.”

“When the show originally aired, the idea of unapologetic queer stories on TV was so provocative that I felt I could only watch ‘Queer as Folk’ in secret,” he said in a statement. “But so much has changed in the last 20 years and how wonderful would it be if the next generation didn’t have to watch ‘Queer as Folk’ alone in their dank basements with the sound muted, but with their family and friends and the volume cranked all the way to the max.”

SAME! i used to illegally download it (putting the .rar files together :toofunny:) and watch it atop my bunkbed in the middle of the night, with headphones on, and literally under the cover. every little noise made me paranoid, especially that i shared a room with my sibling. it was worth it, tho :vegas:

I watched it years ago on Logo when I would stay home from school :huntyga: My parents were at work

I would also try and watch it late at night on Showtime as well but was too paranoid because my bedroom was right enxt door to the bathroom and afraid my mom would get up in the middle of the night and hear my TV :rip:

Lmao I remember being like 14 and stressing over watching it but the thing is that I don’t even remember the plot.

I can't wait. I hope they bring the original US cast back for some episodes.
