Sex and the City is officially being revived in the US with three of its four principal cast members.
10 part series titled And Just Like That will centre around Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker), Charlotte (Kristin Davis) and Miranda (Cynthia Nixon) as they navigate love and friendship in their ’50s. Parker, David & Nixon and Davis will also executive produce, along with writer / director Michael Patrick King.
Kim Cattrall, who played Samantha Jones, is not returning. She has previously criticised Sarah Jessica Parker and the last movie revival. Creator Darren Star is also not involved.
The production is being made for HBO Max in the US (Foxtel / Binge is the likely home in Australia, but that’s yet to be confirmed).
“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 a statement.
Sex and the City ran for six seasons from 1998 – 2004, spawning two films (2008 / 2010) and spin-off The Carrie Diaries.
Production will begin in coming months in New York City.
