Queer as Folk is coming soon to Peacock, and the reboot has added a number of additions to the cast. Ryan O’Connell, Fin Argus, Candace Grace, Jesse James Keitel, Johnny Sibilly, and Devin Way are joining the drama series, which is a reboot of the UK version of the series from Russell T. Davies.
Peacock revealed more about the cast additions in a press release.
“Ryan O’Connell (he/him) (Special, Will & Grace) will play a pop culture nerd with cerebral palsy who is more than ready for some independence.
Fin Argus (he/him/they/them) (Clouds, The Gifted) will play a cocky high schooler whose confidence belies his lack of real world experience.
Candace Grace (they/them) (Acts of Crime) will play a non-binary professor navigating the rocky transition from punk to parenthood.
Johnny Sibilly (he/him) (Hacks, Pose) will play a successful lawyer who is not as put together as he seems.
Devin Way (he/him) (Grey’s Anatomy, Station 19) will play a charming and sometimes chaotic commitment-phobe who finds a reason to stay in New Orleans after tragedy rocks his community.”
This reboot will be set in New Orleans and will follow a tight-knit group of friends who are living their lives and dealing with a tragedy.
A premiere date for this Queer as Folk reboot will be announced at a later time.
