HBO Max has confirmed and announced that Sex and the City is set to receive a 2021 makeover, with three of the show’s original cast members, Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis all sharing a trailer for the series on social media.
Titled ‘And Just Like That…’ the reboot will also be executively produced by Parker, Nixon and Davis, together with Michael Patrick King, but will not include the participation of Kim Cattrall who will not be returning.
The trailer, comprised mainly of shots of New York, doesn’t reveal much of the story for the new series. A statement from HBO Max’s parent company WarnerMedia announcing the reboot was also as vague, saying the series would “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.”

It was followed by a Sex and the City movie in 2008, which was followed by Sex and the City 2 in 2010, both of which were successful at the box office. A Sex and the City 3 was developed in 2016 but ultimately cancelled reportedly due to co-star Kim Cattrall’s unwillingness to revisit the part of Samantha.
The series will comprise of ten, half-hour episodes, and is scheduled to begin production in late spring in New York this year.
