The rumors are true: Sex and the City is coming back.
A 10-episode revival, titled And Just Like That…, is headed to HBO Max with members of the original cast: Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon, and Kristin Davis. According to past reports, Kim Cattrall won’t return to reprise her role as Samantha Jones.
While the release date of the limited series is still unknown, Parker and her costars shared a clip teasing the show on Sunday night, featuring scenes around New York City. “I couldn’t help but wonder… where are they now?” Parker teased in an Instagram video, channeling Carrie Bradshaw’s signature writing style.
SATC, created by Darren Star (Younger, Emily in Paris) and based on the book by Candice Bushnell, originally aired on HBO from 1998 to 2004. It was followed by a film in 2008 and sequel in 2010. The upcoming revival will focus on Carrie, Miranda, and Charlotte “as they navigate the journey from the complicated reality of life and friendship in their 30s to the even more complicated reality of life and friendship in their 50s,” Deadline reports.
Production is slated to begin in New York in late spring. Parker, Nixon, and Davis will all executive produce along with Michael Patrick King, who wrote and directed both SATC films. Rumors first bubbled up in December 2020 that the reboot was a possibility, although without Cattrall.
