The drama starred Fin Argus, CG, Jesse James Keitel, Ryan O'Connell, Johnny Sibilly and Devin Way.

Stephen Dunn developed the drama. He executive produced with Russell T. Davis, Lee Eisenberg, Emily Brecht, Nicola Shindler, Louise Pedersen and Jaclyn Moore. Universal Content Productions, All3Media International and Red Production Company produced.

Dunn commented on the cancellation tonight in an Instagram post: "It's a rare gift in these times, and in this country, to be able to make a show as fearless and unapologetic as Queer as Folk. This experience changed our lives forever and we're so grateful to have found this incredible new family. We know how much it's meant to the fans and while we're heartbroken we won't get to make more episodes, we wanna thank everyone for watching and falling in love with Brodie, Mingus, Ruthie, Noah, Shar, Julian, Daddius, Bussey, Marvin, Judy and Brenda. We're so grateful for the chance to honor our community and are so proud of this show."
