Speaking of the new show, Russell T Davies told Attitude at the 2021 Virgin Atlantic Attitude Awards, powered by Jaguar, that it's: "it's much more modern [than the original], it's ferociously 2022. It's got much more [of] today's issues in it, trans characters, diverse characters. It's really, really thrilling and I'm excited."

The original show focused on the lives of three gay men in Manchester's Canal Street and ran for two series until from 1999-2000. A US remake ran for five seasons from 2000-2005.

The reboot, which is being produced by Peacock, NBC’s streaming service, will consist of eight episodes.
