Carrie’s Coming Back! Everything We Know About the Sex and the City Revival, Including When It Starts
If you ever wondered à la Carrie Bradshaw whether Sex and the City would return to the small screen, then, to quote Mr. Big, the answer is abso-f**king-lutely. HBO Max has announced a revival series titled And Just Like That…, which will see the return of Sarah Jessica Parker‘s iconic character and some of her fabulous New York friends.
“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, HBO Max, said in a press release.
From the release date to the cast, here is everything we know about the new chapter of Sex and the City:
What is of Sex and the City‘s new chapter about?
The upcoming series, based on Candice Bushnell‘s book Sex and the City, and the original HBO show created by Darren Star, will follow “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,” according to an HBO Max press release.
When will the Sex and the City new chapter premiere?
Parade.com has learned that the new series is expected to be released in 2021.
Which cast members are returning for the new chapter of Sex and the City?
Parker, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis will be reprising their roles of Carrie Bradshaw, Miranda Hobbes and Charlotte York, respectively. Parker admitted in 2019 that she was “curious” to see what the SATC characters would be up to. “I’d like to see where all of them are,” she told Entertainment Tonight. “I’m curious, the world has changed even since the movie. I mean, the world has changed so much, technology and social media. They never–which is maybe a virtue too because I would have complicated things even more–so those characters never talked about social media, which I think would be really interesting and just also sexual politics and the #MeToo movement and Time’s Up has really steered conversations about sexual politics, and I think Carrie Bradshaw would just be so greedy to share her feelings and thoughts.”
No other details regarding the cast have been announced yet.
Is Kim Cattrall returning for And Just Like That…?
Kim Cattrall, who played Samantha Jones in the original TV series, was not included in HBO Max’s announcement. According to Deadline and Variety, the actress is not returning for the revival, though that shouldn’t come as a surprise since Cattrall has been vocal in the past about not wanting to reprise her role. “I’m lucky enough to have choice, not that I haven’t worked for it, but I have it,” she recently said (via Entertainment Tonight) on the Women’s Prize for Fiction podcast in 2020. “It’s something I feel very lucky to have and I’m very protective of it. I wouldn’t be any good doing something that I really didn’t want to do.”
How to watch the new chapter of Sex and the City?
And Just Like That…, executive produced by Parker, Davis, Nixon and Michael Patrick King, will be available on HBO Max.
When does production on the new chapter of Sex and the City start?
Production is scheduled to begin in New York late this spring.
How many episodes will there be?
SATC fans can look forward to ten half-hour episodes.
Is there a trailer for And Just Like That…?
No trailer has been released, but Parker, Davis and Nixon announced the revival with teasers on their respective social media channels. The video features footage of the show’s backdrop New York City and a computer screen typing out “And just like that…” and “The story continues…”
Channeling her character, Parker captioned the clip, “I couldn’t help but wonder… where are they now?”
