Yaaasss Queens! The fourth season of Netflix‘s critically acclaimed and Emmy-award winning series, Queer Eye drops tomorrow and stans are already clearing their calendars.

The Fab Five is back once more in Kansas City, and people are literally counting down the moments until the series drops.

The countdown is almost over…

All the Feels

From the many memes and tweets, it’s clear that fans of the show can’t quite seem to contain their excitement.

Netflix’s Queer Eye reboot, which comes more than a decade after the original series went off the air, has quickly become a show synonymous with self care and empowerment.

Every episode of this “makeover” series finds the Fab Five, aka food specialist Antoni Porowski, interior designer Bobby Berk, grooming consultant Jonathan Van Ness, fashion designer Tan France, and culture expert Karamo Brown, serving up hip tips, emotionally-charged makeovers, and heartfelt reveals.

Perhaps some of the most popular Queer Eye memes to date are those emphasizing the rainbow of emotions one experiences while watching the show.

Some people have found the series to be therapeutic AF, a much-needed break from American politics.

While waiting for the latest season to drop, many Netflix subscribers are finding comfort by binge-watching the previous three seasons.

Some people have only recently discovered the Fab Five phenomenon, but as far as we can tell, they don’t seem disappointed.

Favorite Fab Five Moments & Quotes

One of the best takeaways from Queer Eye has to be the Fab Five-isms, the hilarious terms and phrases coined by Antoni, Karamo, Bobby, Tan, and fan fave, Jonathan Van Ness (JVN).

Several Instagram and Twitter memes incorporate fans’ favorite quotes from the show, many of which come courtesy of JVN.
