In the words of Carrie Bradshaw, “Dreams change, trends come and go, but friendships never go out of style.” The Sex and the City is getting a revival and is officially going ahead with HBO Max.
Sarah Jessica Parker and her fellow cast members Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis posted on social media to confirm the news, which first emerged at the end of December, with a cryptic message.
Not only will it feature a fresh storyline but an entirely new name: And Just Like That. HBO Max has confirmed that it will have ten-episodes with Michael Patrick King back as exec producer alongside the trio. King had directed a slew of the episodes, wrote, and directed both feature films.
“I grew up with these characters, and I can’t wait to see how their story has evolved in this new chapter, with the honesty, poignancy, humor and the beloved city that has always defined them,” Sarah Aubrey, Head of Original Content at HBO Max, said in the press release.
Parker, who plays Carrie Bradshaw, Cynthia Nixon, who plays Miranda Hobbes, and Kristin Davis, who stars as Charlotte York, will return for the limited series. But Kim Cattrall, will not return to play Samantha Jones.
Sex and the City‘s revival will follow Carrie, Miranda, and Charlotte as they navigate the journey of their 30s to the complicated reality of life and friendship in their 50s.
It is scheduled to begin production in New York late spring.
“I couldn’t help but wonder… where are they now?,” Parker wrote on Instagram (below).
In Sarah’s comment section, she admitted a release date hasn’t been set just yet. “But stay tuned,” she replied to a fan, “and we will be certain to share all the details!!!”
