After a year-long hiatus due to the pandemic, the Queer Eye Fab Five announced their return to Austin the best way they knew how: posing in front of El Arroyo's iconic sign on Instagram.

The group announced that filming for season six, Queer Eye: Texas, was back on as the five of them smiled aside the sign reading "Queer Eyes, full hearts, can't lose."

The group spent a few days teasing the return before formally announcing the new season. Interior designer Bobby Berk posted a picture of himself and husband, Dewey Do, in front of the Austin skyline and later, another picture of himself and costar and the show's life coach Karamo Brown dressed in cowboy garb.

In TikTok fashion, the caption read: "Show me you're from Texas without telling me you're from Texas. #houstonboys."

In a photo of the cast dressed up in their best, Brown also announced they were returning to work on Instagram.

Hair expert Jonathan Van Ness has allegedly been living in Austin since the show went on pause, even adopting a dog from Austin Pets Alive! in the meantime.

While the group transforms some of Austin's least fashion-forward, watching the show will have you like:
