The Fab Five head back to Netflix, and venture deep in the heart of Texas, for the show's sixth season, the Daily Mail reported.

The new batch of episodes was announced in a trailer that dropped November 18, along with news of the season's December 31 premiere date.

"This year, the style experts will be making over the lives of Texans from the inside out with season six being filmed in the Lone Star State," the Daily Mail noted of the new season, which is set in Austin.

"'Queer Eye' loves to celebrate great American cities and Austin fits this criteria in a big way," quoted showrunner Jennifer Lane as saying.

"Austin and its surrounding communities are home to a wealth of our favorite kind of stories — ones that are not often told. And, to top it off, it's fun to see The Fab 5 in cowboy boots!"

As suggested in that remark, the locals aren't the only ones getting makeovers; the show itself has a few tweaks and tune-ups, such as "a revamped, country-style version of their theme song 'All Things (Just Keep Getting Better)' to go with the program," the Daily Mail said. The cast also adopted a new look, sporting cowboy hats, big belt buckles, and even a fringe in footage glimpsed in the trailer.

Plus, the 5 put more than a little country into their style: Design maven Bobby Berk slings hay bales into a pickup truck; fashion guru Tan France flings a lasso; food and wine expert Antoni Porowski rocks a snap-button Western shirt; culture connoisseur Karamo Brown leads the them all in a line dance; and fashionista Jonathan van Ness keeps his clothing karma going strong even as he takes on a bucking bronco (sort of).
