After only one season, Peacock is shutting the doors to Babylon (again) and canceling its Queer as Folk reboot.
Stephen Dunn, the series' creator, said on Instagram, It's a rare gift in these days, and in this country, to be able to produce a show as fearless and unapologetic as Queer As Folk. We're forever grateful to have found this incredible new family. Until today, we've received the disappointing news that it will not be renewed for a second season.
Were so grateful for the opportunity to honor our community and we are so proud of this show.
On Thursday, June 9, the first (and now only)season of Queer as Folks hit Peacock in full. Following the original UK series (19992000) and the US version (20002005), it is/It was the third series to bear the Queer as Folk title.
Devin Way played Brodie Beaumont, a med school dropout, Fin Argus played Mingus, Jesse James Keitel played Ruthie ONeil as Brodies' also-gay brother, Johnny Sibilly as Brodies' ex-boyfriend Noah Hernandez, and CG as Ruthies' partner Shar.
Kim Cattrall as Brodie and Julians eccentric mother Brenda Beaumont, Ed Begley Jr. as Brendas husband Winston Beaumont, and Juliette Lewis as Mingus free-spirited mother Judy were also featured as Season 1 guest stars.
