Let’s face it, many of us were obsessed with Sex And The City, Carrie Bradshaw’s style (and love life), Samantha’s scandalous escapades, Charlotte’s domestic dilemmas and Miranda’s workaholic lifestyle.
“And just like that…” the Sex And The City comeback has been confirmed to air on HBO Max. After the rumor mill began spinning in December 2020 about the show making a comeback, original stars of the show, Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis took to Instagram to share a little teaser of moving images of Manhattan. The clip featured the title of the show, “And Just Like That,” being typed out, in true Carrie style, with SJP’s caption “I couldn’t help but wonder… where are they now?” with the hashtag #SATCNextChapter.
As we’ve seen after Sex And The City’s second movie, Kim Cattrall who played Samantha, didn’t part with her co-stars on good terms, and is likely not going to be starring in the reboot which is set to begin filming this spring in New York. The show will be executive produced by Michael Patrick King, who wrote and directed the original series and films, as well as SJP, Cynthia and Kristin.
Though there are no exact details of the upcoming series’ plotline, HBO Max released an elusive statement, that “And Just Like That…” will “follow Carrie, Miranda and Charlotte as they navigate the journey from the complicated reality of life and friendship in their thirties to the even more complicated reality of life and friendship in their fifties”.
It’s like we’ve watched them all grow up, and age, and go through their various stages in life! To be honest, we want to know if Samantha isn’t coming back, what happened to her?! Is Carrie still a writer? Is she still with Big? So many questions as we impatiently wait for the new series to finally air!
In the past when asked about any more stints with Sex And The City, Sarah Jessica Parker has always spoken about being open to returning to the screen as Carrie and has referred to the forthcoming series as a “revisit,” as the actress and shoe designer stated, “I’d like to see where all of them are. I’m curious, the world has changed even since the movie.”
Sex And The City was originally written by Candace Bushnell in a column, and based loosely around her own life her work gave life to the HBO TV show. She chose to write a follow up memoir in 2019 entitled, “Is There Still Sex In The City?” – all about finding love in New York whilst being middle-aged.
