Armistead Maupin's beloved series "Tales of the City” gets a Netflix reboot and they have finally released the teaser trailer for this entry into the beloved story.

It's been almost 20 years since we last saw Mary Ann Singleton (Laura Linney) and Anna Madrigal (Olympia Dukakis). Both return in their respective roles on 28 Barbary Lane for this 10-part series which will begin streaming on June 7. 

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

Here is the synopsis for the series: 

"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."
