Sarah Jessica Parker to Star in ‘Sex and the City’ Revival

[additional-authors]
January 11, 2021

There will be a new chapter in the lives of New Yorkers Carrie Bradshaw, Charlotte York and Miranda Hobbes. HBO Max is updating the iconic comedy “Sex and the City” with the new series “And Just Like That…,” with Sarah Jessica Parker, Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon reprising their roles. The ten-episode series will follow them as they navigate life and friendship (and presumably, sex) in their fifties. All three actresses will executive produce with Michael Patrick King.

Kim Cattrall, who played Samantha Jones in the original series, is not returning, which comes as no surprise in light of the long, very public history of animosity and discord between her and Parker.

Based on a bestseller by Candace Bushnell, “Sex and the City” premiered on HBO in 1998 and ran for six seasons, followed by two feature films in 2008 and 2010. Parker, Davis, and Nixon announced the series’ revival in an Instagram post, writing, “I couldn’t help but wonder… where are they now?”

“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, HBO Max, said in a statement.

“And Just Like That…” is scheduled to begin production in New York late spring.
