VIDEO: Peacock Shares QUEER AS FOLK Reboot Trailer

The new series premieres exclusively on Peacock Thursday, June 9. 

Peacock has shared the trailer for the upcoming Queer as Folk reboot. From creator Stephen Dunn, the vibrant reimagining of the groundbreaking British series created by Russell T. Davies, premieres exclusively on Peacock Thursday, June 9.

QUEER AS FOLK is a vibrant reimagining of the groundbreaking British series created by Russell T. Davies, exploring a diverse group of friends in New Orleans whose lives are transformed in the aftermath of a tragedy.

"Like most queer '90s kids, I had a unique relationship with the original Queer as Folk. Growing up, I was desperate for any sort of connection with people like me. It was the first time I really felt seen. The show offered a new paradigm - one where we could accept and celebrate queer love, families, and communities on a global stage. It was truly iconic. I am honored that Russell T. Davies, the creator of the original series, entrusted me to continue this legacy," says creator Stephen Dunn.
