Sex And The City Reboot: Here’s Everything You Need To Know
Sex And The City reboot is heading to your TV screens, more than 20 years after the hit series made its debut.
The series followed the lives of four New York women negotiating work and relationships in the late 90s and early 2000s. This time, only three of the fabulous four are returning for the new TV series: Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis.
Kim Cattrall, who played the popular character, Samantha, will not be returning for the reboot. The US network did not mention the reason behind Cattrall’s not returning to the show. Titled as And Just Like That, the name of the reboot is an ode to one of the show’s original catchphrases.
However, Cattrall has had a strained relationship with the show in recent years, and in particular with her former co-star Parker. The new series will consist of 10 half-hour episodes. The production will begin in late spring.
The trailer of the series was released on its Instagram. It shows various parts on New York City but none of the characters are in it.

The revival 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.”
The new Max Original series is based on Candice Bushnell”s book Sex and the City and the original TV series created by Darren Star. Michael Patrick King, the producer of the original series and the Sex and the City films, is also on board as executive producer.

In a statement, Sarah Aubrey, the head of original content at HBO Max, said she was excited for fans to see the evolution of these iconic characters. “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, humour and the beloved city that has always defined them,” she said.
Sex and the City ran for six seasons and 94 episodes between 1998-2004 and was followed by two feature films in 2008 and 2010. A third movie was also announced but never progressed. A prequel series to the show, The Carrie Diaries was launched on The CW in 2013, with AnnaSophia Robb playing a young Carrie Bradshaw, and ran for two seasons.
