The groundbreaking LGBTQ+ series “Noah’s Arc” is set to return to television screens after more than a decade. The show, which originally aired on Logo TV from 2005 to 2006, followed the lives of four Black gay men living in Los Angeles. It was praised for its groundbreaking representation of LGBTQ+ people of color and its frank portrayal of issues affecting the community.
The revival of “Noah’s Arc” is being spearheaded by Patrik-Ian Polk, the show’s creator and executive producer. Polk has been working on the project for several years and has expressed his excitement about bringing the show back to life. The new series will be titled “Noah’s Arc: The Rona Chronicles” and will follow the characters as they navigate life during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The original cast of “Noah’s Arc” is set to return for the revival, including Darryl Stephens as Noah, Jensen Atwood as Wade, Rodney Chester as Alex, and Christian Vincent as Ricky. The show will also feature several new cast members, including Tony Award winner Billy Porter.
The return of “Noah’s Arc” has been met with excitement from fans of the original series and from those who are eager to see more representation of LGBTQ+ people of color on television. The show was groundbreaking when it first aired in 2005 and helped pave the way for other LGBTQ+ shows like “Pose” and “Love, Victor.”
The new series is set to premiere on BET+, a streaming service that focuses on Black culture and entertainment. A release date has not yet been announced, but fans are eagerly anticipating the return of one of the most beloved LGBTQ+ shows in television history.
