Sex and the City is coming back!
HBO Max has given a series order to And Just Like That…, a new chapter of the groundbreaking HBO series, Sex and the City, from executive producer Michael Patrick King and starring Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis.
Absent from the list of returning stars is Kim Cattrall, who played Samantha Jones on the hit HBO series. I couldn’t help but wonder… for years there have been rumors that Cattrall had a much different experience than the rest of the cast, so it isn’t totally surprising that she isn’t joining the revival.
The new HBO Max Original series is based on the book, Sex and the City, by Candice Bushnell and the original TV series created by Darren Star. The series 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 revival series has been set for ten half-hour episodes and is scheduled to begin production in New York late spring.
“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,” said Sarah Aubrey, Head of Original Content, HBO Max.
And Just Like That… is executive produced by Sarah Jessica Parker, Kristin Davis, Cynthia Nixon, and Michael Patrick King.
