Laura Linney's New Netflix Series Looks Like It's Going to Make Us Cry Buckets

  • Popsugar
In addition to filming the third season of the Netflix crime drama Ozark, it seems Laura Linney made time to star in another drama for the streaming platform: Tales of the City.

The limited series is inspired by the books of the same name by American writer Armistead Maupin, who set his novels in San Francisco. That's where we meet Mary Ann (Linney), who returns to the California city to reunite with her daughter Shawna (Ellen Page) and ex-husband Brian (Paul Gross), 20 years after she left them to pursue her career. In Netflix's description of the series, Mary Ann is "fleeing the midlife crisis that her picture-perfect Connecticut life created" and finds herself "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."

Linney, Page, Gross, and Dukakis will be joined by Charlie Barnett,

TV Review: ‘Tales of the City’

  • Variety
TV Review: ‘Tales of the City’
“We’re still people, aren’t we?” Anna Madrigal (Olympia Dukakis) asks at the beginning of the new installment of “Tales of the City. “Flawed, narcissistic… and doing our best.”

That’s as good a summation as any of the first 2019 episode of one of the most surprisingly resilient TV brands out there. Based on the writing of novelist and urban chronicler Armistead Maupin, “Tales of the City,” about a community of misfits finding one another in San Francisco, began its televised life as a 1993 miniseries; further installments arrived in 1998 and 2001. Eighteen years later, the show is back on Netflix, arriving in June after a premiere episode that screened, fittingly, at the San Francisco Film Festival April 10.

The series’s interesting trick is, now as it was then, capturing the action through the eyes of an outsider. Dukakis’s Anna Madrigal has the most potent wisdom, insight, and lived experience about life on the margins,

Netflix Has Officially Renewed The Umbrella Academy For Season 2

Netflix Has Officially Renewed The Umbrella Academy For Season 2
Given how the first season of The Umbrella Academy ends with a monumental cliffhanger, it would be criminally unfair for Netflix not to renew the sci-fi series for a second season, right? Luckily the streaming platform announced the fate of the star-studded show, which was adapted from the Dark Horse Comics title of the same name by Gerard Way and Gabriel Bá, on April 2 - season two is officially happening! Despite Netflix's usual caginess when it comes to releasing ratings or the number of people who tuned in for season one, it certainly seems like The Umbrella Academy has a strong fandom behind it. Renewing it makes sense.

According to a statement released by Netflix the cast is set to reprise their roles, including Ellen Page, Tom Hopper, David Castañeda, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Robert Sheehan, Aidan Gallagher, and Justin Min. Any additional casting news for season two will apparently be announced at a later date,

Bryan Singer planned on killing off Cable in X-Men: Days of Future Past

Nathan Summers finally made his big screen debut last year as Josh Brolin took on the role of Cable alongside Ryan Reynolds’ Merc with a Mouth in Deadpool 2, but it seems we almost got an appearance from the time-travelling mutant some four years earlier.

Speaking to Screen Rant, Deadpool and Cable creator Rob Liefeld has revealed that Bryan Singer planned to utilise Cable in X-Men: Days of Future Past, with the character making a brief appearance in the 2014 movie before being killed off.

“He was originally in Days of Future Past in the Bishop role and he got killed,” said Liefeld. “And then there was a note that came back that said he’s kind of too big of a character to do this with, and poor Bishop got slaughtered instead. But I swear to you… So, summer 2012, I was like, you can’t, you can’t have Cable.

Mary Ann Singleton is back at Barbary Lane, and the reunion is primed to inspire as many feelings as possible. Netflix is reviving the beloved queer show “Tales of the City,” based on the books by prolific San Francisco writer Armistead Maupin.

Linney returns — with her co-star from that production, Olympia Dukakis, as magical landlord Anna Madrigal — to the mythical house on Barbary Lane in which so many memories were made. The first trailer for the new series, below, is scored by Anohni’s gorgeous queer ode “For Today I am a Boy,” dialing up the tear factor to 100.
