Sex and the City is officially getting the revival treatment over at HBO Max— and a few of your favorite cast members are already on board to reprise their roles!
HBO Max is looking to bring Sex and the City back to the small screen— but with a twist.
Over the weekend on Sunday (January 10), the streamer announced that it has officially given a series order to And Just Like That….
Described as being a new chapter of the groundbreaking HBO series, Sex and the City, the unpcoming revival finds original series actors Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon, and Kristin Davis reprising their roles as Carrie, Miranda, and Charlotte, respectively.
While the original series centered around the women navigating life and friendship in their 30s, this time around, And Just Like That… will explore the even more complicated reality of life and friendship now that the women are in their 50s.
Notably absent from the list of returning stars is Kim Cattrall, who played Samantha Jones on the hit HBO series.
Parker briefly addressed Cattrall’s absence via Instagram while responding to fan comments in relation to the Sex and the City revival.
Per People, Parker first responded to one fan saying they’re excited but will miss Cattrall’s Samatha by writing, “She will always be there. And we are so excited. X.”
The actress also followed up by shooting down rumors that the reason for Cattrall’s absence comes down to a feud between her and Parker.
“No. I don’t dislike her. I’ve never said that,” replied Parker. “Never would. Samantha isn’t part of this story, but she will always be part of us. No matter where we are or what we do. X.”
Spearheaded by executive producer Michael Patrick King, the upcoming revival is set to be comprised of 10 episodes, that are a half-hour long each.
Production on And Just Like That is set to begin in New York City this coming spring, but there’s still no word with regards to when we can expect to see the series premiere via HBO Max.
