It’s officially official!
Fans couldn’t help but wonder if “Sex and the City” would ever be revived, and now, they don’t have to hold their breath any longer. On Sunday, Jan. 10, Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis confirmed the beloved series is coming back to life at HBO Max. However, not only will it feature a fresh storyline but an entirely new name: “And Just Like That.”
In Parker‘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!!!”
In a press release shared with E! News, HBO Max shared the dazzling details of the new “SATC” project.
“The series 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,” a description read. “The ten-episode, half-hour series is scheduled to begin production in New York late spring.”
It’s unclear if HBO Max plans to keep Samantha’s character in the revival.
On the topic of re-casting that key role, Nixon told Andy Cohen last September, “I’ve also heard many people say, including Kim Cattrall herself, that if we were to have a different fourth woman that maybe it would be a woman of color this time… And I think that would be amazing as well.”
All three leads, plus Michael Patrick King (who was the creative force behind “Sex and the City”), will executive produce “And Just Like That.”
“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.
