Sex and the City is making a long-awaited return to your TV thanks to a new reboot on HBO Max.
Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon, and Kristin Davis, who starred as Carrie Bradshaw, Miranda Hobbes, and Charlotte York, respectively, on the hit HBO series took to social media on Sunday night to confirm the news. All three actresses are expected to reprise their roles in the limited series revival, which will air on HBO's streaming service, HBOMax. Kim Cattrall, who starred as fan-favorite Samantha Jones in the series and its two follow-up movies, did not post anything to social media about the new series and is not expected to participate in the revival.
The cryptic video messages shared by Parker, Nixon, and Davis (and the newly-minted social media accounts tagged in said posts) seemed to suggest that the new iteration of the show will be title And Just Like That.
"I couldn’t help but wonder... where are they now?" Sarah Jessica Parker captioned her post about the reboot, signing it, "X, SJ."
"You, me, New York...anything is possible," Nixon wrote in her post's caption.
Davis shared the same video, captioning it, "Anything is possible....Meet you there!"
A press release from HBO Max revealed more details, including that it will be a 10-episode half-hour series and will begin production in New York in "late spring." The original series's executive producer, Michael Patrick King, is also confirmed to return, meaning the revival should retain the flair and feel of the iconic show.
"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," HBO's release added.
On Instagram, Parker commented on the notable absence of Cattrall.
"Happy to see you back but will miss Kim/Samantha," one commenter penned, to which Parker responded, "We will too. We loved her so. X."
And replying to another commenter who suggested Cattrall wasn't returning because of a rumored feud between the actresses, Parker wrote, "No. I don't dislike [Kim]. I've never said that. Never would. Samantha isn't part of this story. But she will always be part of us. No matter where we are or what we do. X."
