Netflix's hit show "Queer Eye" will resume casting in Austin after it paused production in March to abide by the shutdown, CultureMap reports.


The show, which does a full makeover on its subjects, is in Texas for the first time after filming in Georgia, Missouri, Japan and the latest in Philadelphia.



One of the hosts, Bobby Berk, told O Magazine that the show was five days into filming before production was shut down. Three of the Fab Five, or hosts, stayed in Austin, even getting involved in local animal rescue.



Season six was expected to premiere this fall, but will be delayed. Nominations can be sent to qecasting@itv.com.
