Before there was The Carrie Diaries and the highly addictive Good Girls there was the iconic Sex and The City, and after years of debate, speculation and cancelled spin-offs, the series is back with the original cast. HBO Max confirmed that the show will be returning as a limited series with original stars; Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis all returning but Kim Cattral who stared as Samantha will not.
Teasing on social media last night, the reboot will follow a new chapter titled And Just Like That…, and will see Carrie, Charlotte and Miranda in their 50s navigating love and friendship. Set to start filming in the spring, the series will be executively produced by the main stars as well as Michael Patrick King.
The announcement comes after there was news of an adaption of Candace Bushnell’s 2019 book, Is There Still Sex in the City – but there has been no update on this.
It was rumoured in 2016 that a third and final film for the series had been approved, but in 2017 Parker revealed that the film was cancelled, stating “I’m disappointed. We had this beautiful, funny, heartbreaking, joyful, very relatable script and story. It’s not just disappointing that we don’t get to tell the story and have that experience, but more so for that audience that has been so vocal in wanting another movie.”
