The new season of Queer Eye is personal for Jonathan Van Ness.

The grooming expert, who recently came out as nonbinary, returns to his alma mater -- Quincy Senior High School in Illinois -- with the rest of the Fab Five to give a "make better" to his former orchestra teacher.

In an emotional scene from the new trailer, viewable below, Van Ness credits the instructor with saving him. "You have literally saved people's lives -- mine included," the reality star said through tears.

Although this one episode is set in Illinois, the rest of season 4 will be set around Kansas City, Mo. It will feature a whole new slate of heroes as well as the returning "ambassadors of taste" helping them improve their lives: Karamo Brown (culture), Tan France (fashion), Antoni Porowski (food and wine), Bobby Berk (interior design).

Netflix, which produces the reality show, recently announced that season 5, to be set in Philadelphia, had been green-lit for 2020.

Queer Eye is executive-produced by David Collins, Michael Williams and Rob Eric for Scout Productions. Jennifer Lane serves as the showrunner and executive producer. David George, Adam Sher, David Eilenberg, and Jordana Hochman serve as executive producers for ITV Entertainment.

The new season will premiere July 19 on Netflix. Watch the trailer below.
