This vibrant third iteration of Russell T. Davies' story world offers a contemporary version of the original groundbreaking U.K. and U.S. shows by featuring a diverse LGBTQ+ community situated in the lively city of New Orleans. Some of the narratives may remind viewers of episodes from the stateside version of the series, but this reboot is quick to pull in storylines inspired by real-life events that have impacted the LGBTQ+ community since 2005. It's also full of the edgy humor, soap opera-ish drama, and heartfelt moments the American series is known for, while reminding us of how wonderfully diverse the LGBTQ+ community continues to be.
