Bobby Berk Quits Queer Eye After 8 Seasons

Interior designer Bobby Berk has announced that he is leaving Queer Eye after Netflix airs it's eighth season.

Berk has been with the franchise since it was rebooted back in 2018, and took to X (formerly Twitter) to announce the news.

"The love that I have received from you all over the last 6 years has been absolutely surreal. You have tuned in and been dedicated fans and together we were able to share the healing powers of design. I learned from you all about kindness, love and acceptance and that has changed my life for the better. The way you have embraced me and accepted me for who I am is something that l will truly carry with me for the rest of my life. Throughout these years, you, the die-hard fans of ‘Queer Eye,’ have all shared so many stories with me about how the show has touched your lives and I could not be more grateful to each and every one of you for being brave enough to share your experiences.

To all our wonderful, loving, amazing, and brave heroes there is so much I want to say, and so much gratitude I want to express to you all for letting me into your homes and hearts. It’s all because of you that I’ve kept going all these years and each and every one of you have changed me for the better. I’m so very proud of all of you! Being able to help guide you to find the best version of yourselves is something I never took for granted and never will.

It’s with a heavy heart that I announce that season 8 will be my final season on ‘Queer Eye.’ It’s not been an easy decision to be at peace with, but a necessary one. Although my journey with ‘Queer Eye’ is over, my journey with you is not. You will be seeing more of me very soon.

I love you all so so much and I’ll meet you all in Nola for one final season."

Similar to the concept of the original Bravo series, Berk worked alongside Antoni Porowski, Jonathan Van Ness, Karamo Brown, and Tan France to help people find their best selves and learn to love who they are.

“Queer Eye” has won 10 Emmy awards, including five straight wins for outstanding structured reality program from 2018-2022. Berk served as the interior design expert and transformed many lucky contestants’ homes during the show’s run.

Season 8 is set to premiere on Jan. 24, 2024, and take place in New Orleans. Netflix also announced that they have renewed “Queer Eye” for a 9th season, which will take place in Las Vegas.

No word on if they plan to find someone to replace Berk, or if they'll continue the series with the four remaining stars.
