LOS ANGELES, CA – In exciting news for fans of the show, producers have announced that Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, which has been off the air since 2007, will be returning in 2016 featuring Sharks defenceman Brent Burns.

In a break from the traditional format of the show, in which a different person would be featured on each episode, Burns will be the only subject that the Fab Five perform a makeover on in the entire season.

"We have our hands full with this one," a spokesman for the show said.

"The guys thought one 30 minute episode wouldn't be nearly enough time to get the job done, so we've decided to dedicate the season to him."

Two extra stylists and a professional groomer have been added to the ranks as backups, in order to stand in as necessary in case any of the Fab Five wilt under the significant pressure.

Queer Eye: The Werewolf in Teal will premiere February 1 on TLC.
