Sex and the City is returning! Yes 

What’s the name of it? 

And Just Like That is the title of the revived series, according to Deadline…. It has its own Twitter account, but you can call it SATC: If Nixon’s hashtag and the preview are any indication, the next chapter will be released soon. 

When and where can you see it? 

And Just Like That… is a perfect fit for HBO Max, and not just because the original series aired on HBO from 1998 to 2004. The highly anticipated Gossip Girl revival will also air on HBO Max. 

Release date 

It will premiere with two episodes on December 9, 2021. The last eight episodes will air on Thursdays each week. 

How many episodes are there? Ten!

Which stars from ‘Sex and the City’ are returning for ‘And Just Like That…’? 

While Sarah Jessica Parker will reprise her role as Carrie Bradshaw, Cynthia Nixon will play Miranda Hobbes, and Kristin Davis will portray Charlotte York, there will be a void in the friendship circle as Kim Cattrall has unfortunately declined to reprise her part as renowned man-eating PR genius Samantha Jones. 

Kim declined to return alongside her former co-stars following rumours of a conflict, thus the much-loved fan favourite will not feature in the series at all.

Sarah commented on Samantha’s absence: “Samantha isn’t a character in this tale. She will, however, always be a part of us. Regardless of where we are or what we are doing.” Meanwhile, Samantha’s absence is symbolic of real-life, according to HBO Max, the US streaming channel behind the comeback… Casey Bloys, HBO’s chief programming officer, adds, “People come into your life, people depart.” “Friendships die away, and new ones emerge. As a result, I believe it all reflects the stages of life.” 

Samantha’s absence from the broadcast is being justified by her being in the United Kingdom, according to MailOnline. “We couldn’t have Samantha running about New York City without the other women not engaging with her,” a source close to the project reportedly told the tabloid. 

It would have been illogical. Because we’d already done that in the previous film, sending her to Los Angeles wasn’t an option, so having her character based in London was the ideal method to keep her alive and explain her absence.” 

Fans of SATC will be pleased to learn that many other famous faces will be returning to the programme, including actor Chris Noth, who plays Carrie’s suave husband “Mr. Big.” Steve (David Eigenberg) and Harry (Evan Handler), Miranda and Charlotte’s husbands, will return, while Karen Pittman of The Morning Show, Nicole Ari Parker of Chicago PD, Sarita Choudhury of Strangers, and Sara Ramirez of Grey’s Anatomy will play the show’s first non-binary character. 

The plot of ‘And Just Like That…’ 

While the specifics of what Carrie and her friends will be up to have been kept under wraps, it’s safe to assume that there will be plenty of romance, job, and family drama, just as there was in Sex and the City — as well as great dresses and plenty of shoes! Sarah is wary of giving too much away about the plot, but she appears to have just as many questions about the revival as die-hard SATC fans. “Who are they now in the world? What role did they play? Where have they failed as women and as friends, and how are they getting back on track? I’m interested in seeing how these women are now.” 

One thing is certain: the new series will not avoid discussing the current COVID-19 pandemic. “It will undoubtedly be a component of the tale because [these characters] reside in that city,” Sarah explains. “And how has this affected friendships once pals have vanished? We’ll look into everything.” 

In reality, the coronavirus pandemic is a major reason for the revival’s emergence… “Coming home has always been a theme in Carrie’s and her friends’ worlds, and I felt we needed that just now,” Sarah adds.
