Tales of the City has landed a summer premiere date at Netflix. 

The streamer has announced the continuation of Armistead Maupin's books will bow Friday, June 7. 

Netflix also dropped a first-look trailer, giving us our first look at the revival. Laura Linney is back as Mary Ann for the 10-episode revival. 


Mary Ann makes her way back to San Francisco with the aim of reconnecting with both her daughter Shawna (Ellen Page) and her ex-husband, Brian (Paull Gross).

The action picks up 20 years after Mary Ann left them to pursue her career. It's unclear whether that career was a success. 

However, Mary Ann gets close to Anna Madrigal (Olympia Dukakis), who still has the loving home on Barbary Lane, and there are some new additions to that home. 


The only confirmed returnees are Linney, Gross, and Dukakis. They will appear alongside a slew of new cast members, including Murray Bartlett (Looking), Zosia Mamet (Girls) and Charlie Barnett (Chicago Fire).

Here's the official logline from Netflix:

Inspired by the books of Armistead Maupin, the new Netflix Limited Series 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.

Netflix Quotes

Inej: Kaz, if not Saints, what do you believe in?
Kaz: Myself.
Inej: Why'd I even ask?
Kaz: And you. And Jesper. My Crows.
Inej: Because we flock to your bidding? Like the animals of vengeance, you named us after?
Kaz: Crows don't just remember the faces of people who wronged them. They also remember those who were kind. They tell each other who to look after and who to watch out for. No Saint ever watched over me. Not like you have.

The Darkling: Perhaps. But you have given me one. A chance to make amends, to finally win. The Fold was not your mistake --
Alina: The Fold was no mistake!
The Darkling: I never intended for it to be the blight it's become. Or for men like the King or Zlatan to exploit it for their own gain.
Alina: You put this collar on me to exploit my power for your gain!
The Darkling: For us. To help us conquer the Fold together. You and me. You cannot do this on your own. And neither can I.
Alina: We could've had this. All of it. You could've made me your equal. Instead, you made me this. You don't care who suffers, as long as you win.
The Darkling: Fine. Make me your villain.
