Sex And The City is officially set for a revival on HBO Max, with three of the original stars confirming their involvement on social media.
Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis, who play Carrie Bradshaw, Miranda Hobbes and Charlotte York, announced the news on Instagram as they each shared a first-look teaser.
However, it looks as though fellow star Kim Cattrall won’t be returning to play sex kitten Samantha Jones, as she didn’t post on her socials.
Just weeks after initial reports that the beloved show was coming back, Sarah celebrated the long-awaited news on Instagram alongside a brief clip which showed the hustle and bustle of New York City.
Meanwhile, the sentence: ‘And just like that the story continues…’ was typed on a word document, giving us serious Carrie and her weekly column vibes.
‘I couldn’t help but wonder… where are they now? X,’ Sarah captioned her post.
It appears that the show is being brought back as a limited series for the streamer rather than the linear HBO network and it will be titled Just Like That.
Sex And The City originally ran for six seasons and 94 episodes on HBO between 1998-2004.
It was followed by two feature films in 2008 and 2010. A third movie had been in the pipeline but never came to fruition.
Meanwhile, a prequel series titled The Carrie Diaries launched on The CW in 2013, with AnnaSophia Robb playing a young Carrie Bradshaw.
Kim has been vocal in the past about not wanting to revive her character Samantha.
Speaking on the Women’s Prize For Fiction podcast in December, the 64-year-old said: ‘I remember getting a lot of grief on social media for not wanting to do a film. And that was astonishing.
‘Some of the things that people wrote to me, like, you know, “I work in a bank, and I don’t like this person, and I don’t like the hours, I don’t like this, and I do it. So you just do it!”
In the past, Kim has suggested that a Black or Hispanic actress could take on the iconic role, or that Samantha could even be killed off were a new reboot to go ahead.
