The new version of Queer as Folk won’t last long. Russell T. Davies and Stephen Dunn’s show hasn’t been picked up for a second season by Peacock.
The new version, which started airing on June 9, is a reimagining of the British series created by Davies. It follows a group of friends in New Orleans whose lives change after a tragedy.
Devin Way, Fin Argus, Jesse James Keitel, CG, Johnny Sibilly, and Ryan O’Connell all played roles in the show. Kim Cattrall, Juliette Lewis, Ed Begley Jr., and Nyle DiMarco were among the many guest stars on the show.
Dunn announced the cancellation of Queer as Folk on Instagram Friday night, calling it “disappointing news.”
In these times and in this country, it’s a rare gift to be able to make a show as brave and honest as Queer as Folk. “This experience has changed our lives forever, and we’re so happy to have found this amazing new family,” he wrote next to a picture of the cast.
“We know how much it means to the fans, and while we’re sad that we won’t be able to make more episodes, we want to thank everyone for watching and falling in love with Brodie, Mingus, Ruthie, Noah, Shar, Julian, Daddies, Bussey, Marvin, Judy, and Brenda. We’re so happy to be able to honor our community, and we’re so proud of this show.
Lee Eisenberg, Emily Brecht, Davies, Nicola Shindler, and Louise Pedersen worked as executive producers. All3 Media International, which sells the format and the original British series made by Red Productions for Channel 4, also sent Louise Pedersen. Stephen Dunn, the show’s creator, writer, and executive producer, directed the pilot and other episodes. Jaclyn Moore, the show’s writer and executive producer, directed the pilot and other episodes. The show is made by UCP, which is a part of the Universal Studio Group.
This is the second time an American outlet has made a new version of a British show. From 2000 to 2005, an American version of the show ran on Showtime. The current version was first in development at Bravo, but then it was moved to Peacock, which is part of the same company, and a series order was given.
