Two years after Netflix first announced plans to revive Tales of the City, we finally have the first teaser trailer. Based on the clip, the 10-episode limited series will take viewers on an emotional roller coaster ride. Be sure to have a box of tissues handy.
Inspired by the books of Armistead Maupin, Netflix Original Limited Series Armistead Maupin’s Tales of the City begins a new chapter in the beloved story. Mary Ann (Laura Linney) returns to present-day San Francisco and is reunited with her daughter Shawna (Ellen Page) and ex-husband Brian (Paul Gross), twenty years after leaving them behind to pursue her career. Fleeing the midlife crisis that her picture-perfect Connecticut life created, Mary Ann is quickly drawn back into the orbit of Anna Madrigal (Olympia Dukakis), her chosen family and a new generation of queer young residents living at 28 Barbary Lane.
Tales of the City originally aired in 1993. The outstanding miniseries earned PBS its highest ratings, won a Peabody Award and was nominated for two Primetime Emmys. Linney, Dukakis, Barbara Garrick and Paul Gross all reprise their original roles. Joining them is a talented and diverse cast, which includes Victor Garber, Zosia Mamet, Looking alum Murray Bartlett, Bob The Drag Queen and Chicago Fire star Charlie Barnett.
Armistead Maupin’s Tales of the City arrives on the streaming service on June 7. Check out the teaser below.
