Bobby Berk, the interior design expert on the Emmy-winning Netflix series “Queer Eye,” announced Nov. 13 that he will be leaving the show after the upcoming eighth season. He shared the news in a lengthy Instagram post.
The 42-year-old uploaded photos from his interactions with some of the show’s heroes throughout the years. Berk ended the slideshow with a sweet photo of him smiling next to the other members of the Fab Five: Antoni Porowski, Jonathan Van Ness, Karamo Brown and Tan France.
“To the Queer Eye Community who have become family to me,” Berk began. “The love that I have received from you all over the last 6 years has been absolutely surreal.”
Members of the “Queer Eye” family left kind and supportive messages in the comments.
Berk’s announcement was posted around the same time the show confirmed on its social media accounts that it had been renewed for Season Eight.
