“Noah’s Arc” reunion episode adds Wanda Sykes, Tituss Burgess, Wilson Cruz, and Richard Brooks

Patrik-Ian Polk Entertainment today announced guest stars for the highly anticipated scripted reunion special, “Noah’s Arc: The ‘Rona Chronicles,” presented by Gilead Sciences, Inc., which will air on Sunday, July 5 at 8PM ET/5PM PT. Facebook pages, as well as on Patrik-Ian Polk Entertainment’s YouTube. The virtual event will raise funds for several non-profits that support Black LGBTQ people.

Wanda Sykes, Tituss Burgess (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt), Wilson Cruz (Star Trek: Discovery, 13 Reasons Why), and Richard Brooks (Law & Order, Being Mary Jane) will guest star in “Noah’s Arc: The ‘Rona Chronicles” scripted episode alongside original cast members Darryl Stephens, Jensen Atwood, Rodney Chester, Doug Spearman, and Christian Vincent. The new scripted episode reunites beloved characters including Noah, Alex, Ricky, and Chance from the wildly popular, groundbreaking Black gay television series, “Noah’s Arc.” “Noah’s Arc” ran on MTV/Viacom’s Logo channel from 2005 to 2007 and wrapped up with the award-winning 2008 feature film, “Noah’s Arc: Jumping the Broom” (Outstanding Film, GLAAD Media Awards). Ten years after the wedding, “The ‘Rona Chronicles” finds Noah and pals in the middle of a worldwide public health crisis and global social justice movement.

Following the original episode, Entertainment Weekly will present the “Noah’s Arc Post-Reunion Q&A” moderated by Karamo Brown and streaming on

The virtual reunion experience on July 5 will kick off with a pre-show tailgate party featuring clips from the series and testimonial videos from fans presented & hosted by MOBI (Mobilizing Our Brothers Initiative) followed by the reunion episode written and directed by the show’s creator Patrik-Ian Polk. Gilead serves as title sponsor for the reunion. Entertainment Weekly and Impulse Live are presenting partners and GLAADImpulse DC, and MOBI are supporting partners.

Polk (P-Valley, Being Mary Jane, Blackbird) created “Noah’s Arc” to shine a light on the largely untold stories of the Black gay community. The series was the first on American television to feature an all-Black and gay cast of characters. For most African-American LGBTQ people, this was their first time seeing any version of themselves on TV– and although short-lived, the series’ impact is still celebrated today.

“Not a day goes by that I don’t get messages, tweets, DM’s and emails from the huge Noah’s Arc fanbase saying how much they love & miss the show and begging for a reboot,” says Polk. “While we’ve all struggled to stay sane during these stressful and trying times, the cast and I wanted to do something special to show our appreciation for all the love we continue to receive from the fans.”

Recognizing that in these trying times many LGBTQ non-profits are struggling financially, Polk is proud to announce that this event will also raise funds for a host of Black LGBTQ non-profit organizations providing vital services to their communities. The fundraising goal is $100,000, which will be split among seven non-profits listed below.

“Noah’s Arc” creator Patrik-Ian Polk is an Independent Spirit Award and six-time NAACP Image Award nominee. His feature film credits include Blackbird, Punks & The Skinny. He served as Co-Exec Producer of BET’s Being Mary Jane, writing and producing the popular series’ 2019 two-hour finale, and P-Valley, which premieres July 12th on Starz.

The non-profit organizations supported by the “Noah’s Arc: The ‘Rona Chronicles” fundraiser are:
