The rumors are true: Sex And The City revival has finally been confirmed by HBO Max, and it’s going to be Samantha-free.
Looks like we’re going to be getting our whole new dose of fashion with Sarah Jessica Parker just like the good ol’ days. Following the recent announcement that Sex and The City is now on Netflix, another streaming platform, HBO Max, has just confirmed its revival treatment of the iconic sitcom titled, And Just Like That.
While Sex and The City ran from 1998 to 2004, which later made into two feature films, the revival And Just Like That is only getting 10 half-hour episodes. Now, it’s not going to be a remake; rather it’s like a new chapter of what they did before.
Although it’s unfortunate that the four women won’t be complete anymore, Sarah Jessica Parker (Carrie Bradshaw), Cynthia Nixon (Miranda Hobbes), and Kristin Davis (Charlotte York) will reprise their original characters. Kim Catrall, who played Samantha Jones, is not returning, which is really a bummer, because she’s very well-liked by many, especially because of her sense of passions, liberty, and humor.
According to a statement HBO Max released, “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.”
Recently, SJP posted a video on her Instagram of the trailer from the upcoming series. “I couldn’t help but wonder…where are they now? X, SJ.” And in the video, she could be heard typing, “And just like that…” appearing on the screen and followed by, “the story continues…”
Ever since the rumors about revisiting the iconic series came up, Kim Catrall has always been totally opposed to it. While this may be, we’re thinking that the reason is more than just letting the series be an iconic production of the early 2000s, because it’s not news that she had a falling out with SJP.
Basically, the two stars never really got along due to—depending on who you believe—Kim being a diva or Sarah being a mean girl. But if so, they must be really good actors to the extent that they were able to set their differences aside.
But then again, Cynthia Nixon said it best in her tweet: “Anything Is Possible. This Is New York.” So, maybe there will be a surprise appearance? After all, HBO Max is known for surprising us all—from a new Gossip Girl series to a Friends reunion special.
