If you’re ready to shed some happy gay tears on this day, I’ve got good news for you: Yesterday Netflix dropped the first trailer for its Lauren Morelli-helmed, Ellen Page-anchored Tales of the City reboot and holy heck! I don’t think I’m allowed to say anything specific, but I think I can say I’ve watched several of the first season’s episodes and cried during every one of them (in a good way). This trailer really captures the spirit of the thing, which Morelli described a few weeks ago as “The escape that I hope we all kind of deserve right now. The characters deserve it, we, as an audience, deserve it. Let’s just create a safe space where we can disappear an hour at a time.”
Tales of the City lands on June 7. You’ll find your reviews and interviews right here on Autostraddle dot com very soon.
I am so here for some warm loving esGaypism!
This looks absolutely beautiful and I can’t wait!
Ahh this looks amazing!! Also whenever I hear Laura Linney’s voice I get very emotional? What is that about?
Imma cry right now because the ’93 Tales from the City is one of my all time faves and I miss living in the city so dang much.
ooo so excited for this
I read the first six books when I peeked out of the closet’s door. They were the gentle and loving push I needed ❤️ This trailer made me cry. In a good way.
Does this mean I need to get a Netflix streaming subscription now?
