It’s bloody official: HBO has revived Sex and the City for a brand new chapter. Sarah Jessica Parker confirmed the news on Instagram just moments ago.
The new series is called And Just Like That, and it will debut on HBO Max.
According to Variety, Parker (Carrie Bradshaw), Cynthia Nixon (Miranda Hobbes), and Kristin Davis (Charlotte York) will reprise their iconic roles. In absolutely no surprise whatsoever, Kim Cattrall, who starred as Samantha Jones in the series, won’t be back. (Read: Cattrall’s ongoing bad blood with Parker).
The new series will consists of 10 half-hour episodes, production will begin in late autumn (spring in New York).
On Instagram, Parker shared the news via a fabulous teaser filled with cuts of New York City and a computer screen of someone typing “And just like that… the story continues.” Of course, it also included Parker’s voiceover.
She captioned her post, “I couldn’t help but wonder… where are they now?”
The Sex and the City revival has been rumoured for some time now. Way back in 2019, Parker said she was keen to “revisit” the women in present time.
“I’m curious, the world has changed even since the movie [2008 and 2010] and I mean, the world has changed so much, technology and social media,” she told Entertainment Tonight.
“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.”
Sex and the City was created by Darren Star, and ran for six seasons on HBO from 1998 to 2004.
