The pandemic has done nothing to curb Hollywood’s addiction to revivals – hello, The Fresh Prince of Bel Air. Now, Sex and the City might be getting another limited series reboot courtesy of HBO Max, Page Six reports. Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon, and Kristin Davis are all set to return as Carrie Bradshaw, Miranda Hobbes, and Charlotte York-Goldenblatt, respectively – while Kim Cattrall (aka Samantha Jones) will pass, following her decision not to do a third SATC movie. I couldn’t help but wonder… how will a series revival go ahead without the nymphomaniac PR executive? Maybe Samantha just realised she belongs with Smith, and moved back to LA for good.
SJP previously revealed on Entertainment Tonight that she would be amenable to returning to the screen as the New York Star columnist one more time. “I wouldn’t call it a reboot, I would call it a ‘revisit’,” the Manolo enthusiast said. “I’d like to see where all of them are. I’m curious, the world has changed even since the movie.” Among the subjects she’s keen to hear Ms Bradshaw wonder aloud about? Namely “technology and social media” as well as “sexual politics and the #MeToo movement and Time’s Up”.
Candace Bushnell, who famously wrote the original column that gave rise to the HBO drama, also chose to revisit the subject matter in 2019 – publishing a follow-up memoir, Is There Still Sex In The City?, about dating in Manhattan in her fifties. Here’s hoping that Carrie finally ditches Big and downloads Tinder.
