Netflix dropped the trailer for the ‘Tales of the City’ sequel & gay Twitter lost its mind

The highly anticipated sequel to Armistead Maupin’s Tales of the City is almost here and Netflix is giving us a taste with a new teaser. But a taste wasn’t nearly enough for LGBT people on Twitter; they’re ready to watch the whole thing.

The sequel brings Mary Ann Singleton (played by Laura Linney) back to 28 Barbary Lane in San Francisco for a reunion with old friends and time to make new ones.

Ellen Page will play Mary Ann’s daughter, Shawna. Molly Ringwald and Bob the Drag Queen will also be in the show.

Previous cast members of the miniseries, including Olympia Dukakis as Mary Ann’s former landlady, Anna Madrigal, will also return. Linney has played Mary Ann in every incarnation of the series.

The 1993 series was based on Maupin’s books chronicling the life of a group of friends in San Francisco in the late 70s and early 80s. The original miniseries was produced by Channel 4 in the UK and distributed by PBS in the United States. Two later installments were aired on Showtime.

The show will start streaming on Netflix on June 7, but plenty of fans – including our sister site GayCities – can’t wait. And they’re talking all about it on social media.

    The Joy of Life (2005)

    A blending of documentary and experimental narrative strategies, combining stunning 16mm landscape cinematography with a bold, lyrical voice-over to share two San Francisco stories: the history of the Golden Gate Bridge as "suicide landmark," and the story of a butch dyke in San Francisco searching for love and self-discovery. The Joy of Life is a film about landscapes, both physical and emotional.
