Netflix "Queer Eye" star Karamo Brown is coming to daytime TV with his own self-titled, one-hour talk show on NBC.

As reported by multiple media outlets, "Karamo" has been sold in 90 percent of the U.S. market and will make a fall 2022 premiere on stations including WPIX New York, KTLA Los Angeles, WCIU Chicago, WPHL Philadelphia, WATL Atlanta, WLVI Boston, WKCF Orlando, WSVN Miami and WJW Cleveland.

"Growing up, hosting a daytime talk show seemed unrealistic and unattainable, but it was my dream. I used to run home from school as a kid to watch this genre's icons Sally, Donahue and Maury," Brown said in a release about the show. "As a black, gay man of first-generation immigrants, opportunities for my goals seemed impossible so I want to thank everyone involved for believing in me and trusting me to explore all the highs and lows of life and celebrate with their audiences."

On "Queer Eye" Brown is the show's pop culture expert, and he plans to dive even deeper into these topics for his daytime debut with shows about "infidelity, race, parenting, and complex family dynamics."

"Karamo has done an incredible job guest hosting Maury many times over the past two seasons," said Tracie Wilson, executive vice president of NBCUniversal Syndication Studios and E! News in a statement. "Karamo is a true fan of the genre who will bring that passion, along with his unique skill set and life experiences to guide his guests through life's dramatic crossroads and build a lasting connection with the daytime audience."

Congratulations, Karamo! Will you be watching?
