The first official trailer for the highly anticipated reboot for Queer as Folk, and after watching it I have to say I was quite underwhelmed.

While I’m sure they were trying to capture the bold, unapologetic spirit of the original, I got none of that from the trailer.

To me it felt like they were trying to represent the “other” that weren’t prominent in the original series, which is fine because my issue with the original series is that it lacked diversity.

All I got is the same types of 2022gays that pose as outsiders, but frequent your local hipster gayborhood club. While visually stunning, this show is Queer as Folk in name only.

I get that the 2022 version is trying to take the series beyond the show’s original premise, which circulated around a group of friends in Pittsburg as they navigated through love, sex, heartbreak, and queer politics, but the series feels way too serious and kind of preachy.

And with the show being on Peacock, it was giving me HBO lite.

Created and directed by Stephen Dunn, produced by Russell T. Davies (creator of the original British series Queer As Folk), and written by Jaclyn Moore (Love Life, Dear White People), this reboot stars Jesse  James Keitel, Johnny Silby, Fin Argus, Devin Way, CG, and Ryan O’Connell star, with Juliette Lewis, Kim Cattrall, Lukas Gage, and Nyle DiMarco all appear in recurring roles as well.

Queer As Folk premieres on June 9.
