Could a ‘Noah’s Arc’ reunion be on the way? or an entirely new project featuring some of the cast?

In case you forgot, the hit series ran on Logo from October 19, 2005, to October 4, 2006 was wildly popular and became a hit as the first television show centered around a group of LGBT black men. The show was based on the character Noah Nicholson played by actor Darryl Stephens, his boyfriend Wade Robinson, played by Jensen Atwood, and their group of friends.

The series became popular and struck a cord with many fans addressing topics such as same sex dating, same-sex marriage, same-sex parenthood, HIV and AIDS awareness, infidelity, promiscuity, homophobia, gay bashing and more. It was the black man’s answer to the hit show ‘Queer as Folk,’ and served as a representation for black gay men on television, when there was little to none on at that time.

As popular as it was, the show was very short lived. After its cancellation, a film was produced entitled ‘Noah’s Arc: Jumping the Broom‘, which was released theatrically in 2008.

A reunion of sorts took place this past Memorial Day weekend, when the cast came together to serve as ambassadors at the Gran Melia Hotel in Rio Grande, Puerto Rico for Gay Pride on May 26-30, 2016. This was the first time the cast had been spotted all together in over 10 years. Well, on early Thursday morning (Aug 11), Stephens took to social media to share a snap of he and his on screen beau Atwood, alluding that the two have something cooking up. He posted the below pic with the cryptic caption “Out of the cocoon. Stay tuned…”

Jensen has been busy in Los Angeles snagging roles on a few projects and you may have seen him this season on the Carlos King executive produced ‘Hollywood Divas.’ Could Jensen have sparked some talk and a possible deal to get ‘Noah’s Arc’ back on TV? No confirmations have come but we will definitely do some digging, stay tuned.
