By Brian Ford Sullivan (TFC)

CHICAGO (thefutoncritic.com) -- The Fab Five has set a return date. Bravo will resume running fresh episodes of the smash hit beginning Tuesday, November 18 at 10:00/9:00c. In addition, the network has ordered a special holiday-themed episode to air on December 16.

Among the subjects for the new episodes: "a hippie dad postal worker who dabbles in taxidermy, an ex-marine striving to be both an officer and a gentleman, and a conservative lawyer who is ready to go topless for the first time in 13 years. . . by losing his toupee," according to a Bravo press release. As for the holiday special, the network promises the unveiling of "a brand new Fab 5 loft designed and decorated by Thom, plus updates on some of last season�s most memorable straight guys as the Fab 5 drop in unexpectedly to see how they are following the 'Queer Eye' mandate and come back with surprising results."

The series, which airs Tuesdays at 9:00/8:00c beginning December 2, features 25 celebrities competing (five per game) for a piece of the $250,000 prize pool in a game of No Limit Texas Hold'em poker for the charity of their choice.
