‘Queer as Folk’ is being rebooted & one of the former cast members has something to say

We thought things couldn’t get much better at Bravo TV after the Real Housewives franchises but it is about to.

Variety reports that the television network Bravo is developing a new version of the hit TV show Queer As Folk with the creator of the original UK series, Russell T. Davies, as an executive producer.

The original show, which first aired in 1999, followed three gay men living in Manchester, England. The ten episodes starred Aidan Gillen, Charlie Hunnam and Craig Kelly.

The North American remake of the show is what most people are familiar with, set in Pittsburgh, it aired in 2000 and ran for five seasons.

Described as a “modern take on the original British series that centers on a group of club-going friends who find support in the gay community following a tragedy,” Bravo’s new Queer as Folk will expose a whole new generation to the iconic queer show.

Still, former cast member Hal Sparks, who played the role of Michael, had some thoughts the former show when news of the reboot hit.
