Queer As Folk Reboot In the Works At Peacock | Screen Rant


Peacock seems like a great home for theĀ Queer as FolkĀ reboot. In an effort to stand out in the increasingly crowded streaming market, the platform has established itself as the go-to place for updated takes on older shows.Ā  It’s released revivals of bothĀ Saved by the BellĀ andĀ Punky Brewster, with the former already renewed for season 2. In July 2020, Peacock also debutedĀ Psych 2: Lassie Come Home, a movie follow up to the USA Network series and 2017 filmĀ Psych: The Movie. It’s clear from the news aboutĀ Queer as FolkĀ that the streamer has no plans to change its strategy of focusing on familiar properties.

Of course, it’s worth notingĀ theĀ Queer as FolkĀ reboot is a slightly different beast. Though theĀ Saved by the BellĀ revival primarily focuses on a new class of students at Bayside High, it also features some of the original cast in supporting roles. Peacock’s version ofĀ Queer as FolkĀ will instead be an entirely new story and likely won’t feature appearances by characters from the original British or U.S. series. This will help the show stand out, and as Dunn says, hopefully bring in a new generation of viewers.
