Is Queer as Folk about to return for a new series?

Channel 4

Well, it might be – and all thanks to Charlie Hunnam.

Charlie, who plays schoolboy Nathan Maloney in the LGBT+ show, revealed he’s bidding for the iconic show to return, reveals The Sun.

Explaining he’s proud of his involvement with the ground-breaking Channel 4 series, Charlie confirmed that he’d like to see Queer as Folk back on our screens.  He said: “I’d be game for a reunion. It’s a long time ago, I’m an old bastard now – that was 20 years ago.”

Charlie recently was reunited with co-star Aidan Gillen on set for movie blockbuster King Arthur – 17 years following the show’s departure from our screens. Adding of his former Queer as Folk co-star: “I always felt like I owed him a grand debt of gratitude. I really thanked him for the impact he had on me. He thought I was mad but I felt it deeply.”

And it seems playing Nathan Maloney had a bigger impression on fans than even Charlie expected, all these year’s later… 

“When I’m back in England, people still recognise me as Nathan… It was the beginning of my career, so I have very fond memories of it,” Charlie revealed. 

“I’m very proud of being a part of that show. I’m very happy when people bring it up.

“I’m just surprised because it was so long ago.”

We’re with you Charlie! The show should return, and we’d expect you to still once again, please!
