What is Tales of the City about? 

The mini-series is inspired by the novel Tales of the City by Armistead Maupin released in 1978, which appeared originally in the San Francisco Chronicle. 

Viewers have previously seen Tales of the City on the screen in the original 1993 mini-series, which aired on Channel 4 in the UK and screened on PBS in the US. 

There were also two more instalments shown on Showtime in 1998 and 2001. 

The Netflix limited series picks up in present-day San Francisco following a new story for original characters and the new cast. 

Laura Linney who originally played Mary Ann Singleton reprises her role alongside Olympia Dukakis who returns as Anna Madrigal in her fourth appearance as the matriarch of 28 Barbary Lane. 

Barbara Garrick who played DeDe Halcyon Day in the original also returns. 

The show will follow Mary Ann as she is reunited with her daughter Shawna (played by Ellen Page) and her ex-husband Brian (Paul Gross), 20 years after leaving them behind to pursue her career.  

The official synopsis reads: “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.”
