(CNN/Meredith) -- Netflix has its eye on another season of "Queer Eye."

The rebooted reality show, which debuted in February with a new cast of experts at the helm, has scored another season which premieres June 15. 

This season, the Queer Eye Fab Five return to the Georgia heartland, forging connections with communities from a wide array of backgrounds and beliefs often contrary to their own, touching on everything from self-love and faith, to immigration and how to make the perfect homemade poke bowls and more.

Netflix does not release ratings information, so it's not possible to say in any official capacity whether viewership contributed to the show's renewal, but the series unquestionably struck a chord with viewers. 

"Queer Eye" has been praised for its warm and positive tone, bridge-building narratives and inspirational transformations.

The new Fab Five -- Antoni Porowski, Bobby Berk, Karamo Brown, Jonathan Van Ness and Tan France -- also clicked.

"These series are indicative of what we're trying to accomplish for Netflix unscripted: working with world-class producers to create the best-unscripted shows on television," said Bela Bajaria, vice president of content for Netflix. "These series elevate the genre with innovative takes on familiar formats. They deliver immersive and nuanced stories. They elicit so many emotions from viewers, from tears of laughter to tears of joy - and that's just 'Queer Eye.'"

Netflix also renewed family comedy "One Day at a Time" for the third season.

"Queer Eye for the Straight Guy" originally ran on Bravo for five seasons, with hosts Ted Allen, Kyan Douglas, Thom Filicia, Carson Kressley and Jai Rodriguez.

In other 'Queer Eye' news, Tom Jackson, the self-deprecating Georgia man who tugged at viewers' heart strings in the first episode of Netflix's "Queer Eye," is a married man again.

Jackson appeared in the series opener of the reality reboot and quickly broke the hearts of the men on his makeover team by declaring, "You can't fix ugly." The team -- Antoni Porowski, Bobby Berk, Karamo Brown, Jonathan Van Ness and Tan France -- went to work, giving Jackson a physical and emotional makeover.

Through the experience, Jackson gained a more positive self-outlook and even rekindled his relationship with his ex-wife, Abby.

Jackson took to Twitter this week to announce they'd gotten remarried.

"Abby and I got married!!!!!!!" he wrote. "Just the two of us, an elopement wedding then a honeymoon in the mountains."

The ceremony took place in Gatlinburg, Tennessee at Chapel at the Park, Jackson said.
