FINALLY, we have a debut date for Armistead Maupin’s Tales of the City the long awaited television return to the beloved characters created by San Francisco writer Maupin in his 9 volume “Tales” series that originally began as newspaper serial in the 1970s. Three television series were broadcast in the 1990s but this is the first adaptation of the material since then.

Netflix has released new images and a teary trailer for the new series which will consist of 10 episodes and they will drop just in time for Pride Month….Friday, June 7th. 

 Armistead Maupin’s Tales of the City stars returning actors Laura Linney (Mary Anne Singleton), Olympia Dukakis (Anna Madrgial), Barbara Garrick (DeDe Halcyon Day) and Paul Gross (Brian Hawkins) from the first series that aired on PBS in 1993 and was produced by Britain’s Channel 4. That 6 episode series garnered huge ratings for PBS but protests over public funding of a show featuring gay content led to PBS reluctantly backing out of producing further installments. Channel 4 went on to partner with cable channel Showtime to do two more series, both produced in Canada. 

Also starring former “Looking” actor Murray Bartlett as Michael “Mouse” Tolliver (the third actor to play the role) and Ellen Page as Shawna, the adopted daughter of Mary Anne and Brian. And, RuPaul’s Drag Race star Bob the Drag Queen will also play a character named “Ida Best”.

This new series will feature characters and plots developed in last six “Tales” novels but it will also include characters and situations unique to this series, including the inclusion of many queer, transgender and non-binary characters.
