This New Series On Netflix Canada Is Like A More Lighthearted 'RuPaul's Drag Race'

Ever since the iconic RuPaul's Drag Race made its way onto Netflix, life has been that much better. If you ever find yourself in a bad mood, something about watching legendary drag queens getting all dolled up and lip syncing for their life will instantly put you in a better mood. If you've made your way through all the seasons of Ru and his girls, we've got good news - there's a new series on Netflix Canada and it's a more lighthearted version of RuPaul's Drag Race.

The new series is called Tales of the City and is inspired by the books of Armistead Maupin. It tells the story of Mary Ann (played by Laura Linney), a woman who has made her way back to San Francisco after leaving twenty years prior to pursue her career. It definitely has all of the fun and heartwarming vibes of RuPaul's Drag Race.

Waiting for her when she returns is her daughter, Shawna (played by Ellen Page), and her ex-husband, Brian (played by Paul Gross). After falling into a mid-life crisis in Connecticut, Mary finds herself sucked back into the orbit of someone named Anna Madrigal (played by Olympia Dukakis), her chosen family, and a group of queer young residents living at 28 Barbary Lane.

One thing's for sure - Mary's life is about to change, big time.

If you're a big fan of vibrant personalities, drag makeup, and heartwarming storylines, then this is definitely the show for you. We're willing to bet that you'll be laughing until you cry, and crying until you laugh.

The trailer for Tales of the City was released by Netflix today - you can check it out above. The show will be available for streaming on the service as of June 7th, but in the meantime be sure to make your way through all the seasons of RuPaul's Drag Race that Netflix has to offer!

Several Canadian celebrities are lending their support to Netflix employees who have recently spoken out against Dave Chappelle's controversial new comedy special, in which he makes remarks about the transgender community.

On Wednesday, October 20, Schitt's Creek star Dan Levy posted a statement on Twitter in solidarity with staff members of the streaming giant, many of whom were demonstrating during a rally in California the same day.
