For those of you who loved the PBS and Showtime adaptations of Armistead Maupin’s “Tales of the City,” there’s good news because it will be returning with a 10-episode sequel in 2019.

Stars from the original series, Laura Linney and Olympia Dukakis are returning to their roles in the award-winning series with Ellen Page signed on to play the daughter of Linney’s character Mary Ann Singleton according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Here’s the synopsis:

“Based on the books by [Armistead] Maupin, Tales of the City follows Mary Ann (Linney), who returns home to San Francisco and is reunited with her daughter (Page) and ex-husband Brian 20 years after leaving them behind to pursue her career. Fleeing the midlife crisis that her picture-perfect Connecticut life created, Mary Ann returns home to her chosen family and will quickly be drawn back into the orbit of Anna Madrigal (Dukakis) and the residents of 28 Barbary Lane.”

Maupin, who will turn 74 this year, is returning as executive producer alongside Alan Poul who will also direct.

"I couldn't be more excited about this brand-new incarnation of Tales. It's set in present-day San Francisco with all the joys and complications that might suggest for the residents of 28 Barbary Lane," Maupin said in a statement. “Mrs. Madrigal's tenants, both old and new, will be entangled in delicious new adventures and ever-expanding possibilities for love."
