It has been nearly eleven years since the Sex and The City fans last saw their favorite characters on screen. If anyone ever thought that Sex and The City were finished with, well, they thought wrong! Sex and The City is officially returning for a new season. Or, as many like to call it, a revival. Many previous shows like Will & Grace, iCarly, Veronica Mars, and Gossip Girl have had revival shows, and now Sex and The City will follow suit.
What is the New Reboot’s Expected Plot?
The new season’s plot has been kept under tight wraps by the makers and cast members of the show. The revival season has been named And Just Like That… The series is expected to focus on the original characters and their children. The original main characters of the series Carrie Bradshaw, Miranda Hobbes, and Charlotte York, are now in their 50s and still live in New York. They continue to explore friendships, love, and life.
Who is Returning For the Reboot of Show?
A majority of the original cast members are returning for the new season, and some new additions are also there. The cast includes Sarah Jessica Parker as Carrie Bradshaw, Kristin Davis as Charlotte York Goldenblatt, Cynthia Nixon as Miranda Hobbes, Sara Ramirez as Che Diaz, Chris Noth as Mr. Big, Mario Cantone as Anthony Marentino, Willie Garson as Stanford Blatch, David Eigenberg as Steve Brady, Evan Handler as Harry Goldenblatt, Sarita Choudhary as Seema Patel, Nicole Ari Parker as Lisa Todd Wexley, Karen Pittman as Dr. Nya Wallace, Alexa Swinton as Rose Goldenblatt, Cree Cicchino as Luisa Torres, Niall Cunningham as Brady Hobbes, Cathy Ang as Lily Goldenblatt and Isaac Cole Powell as George.
Unfortunately, Kim Cattrall, who portrayed Samantha Jones in the television series and film series, will not be returning for the revival series. Her not returning is largely attributed to her feud with Sarah Jessica Parker, which began when they were shooting the Sex and The City films. It appears that even after many years, the feud remains unresolved, which is why Cattrall refused to reprise her role for the new season. The reason for there was reported because of Parker’s demands and rude behavior on the set. In addition, Cattrall reportedly did not want to film a third Sex and The City film while Parker wanted to do so, which further fuelled their feud.
Production of the Sex and The City Reboot
The development for the new season began in December 2020 at HBO Max. The series was first thought of as a reboot with new cast members and new characters. But that was later changed to a revival season to keep the series faithful to the original book and television show. The show began production in June 2021. The first table read for the new season was held at the show’s studio in New York City on June 11, 2021. Recently, new stills from And Just Like That were released online and went viral. The photos featured the children of Miranda Hobbes and Charlotte York. Charlotte has two daughters, Lily and Rose, while Miranda has a son Brady. All the kids here are grown up and will also be the main characters of the new season.
When will And Just Like That release? Is there a trailer? And Just Like That has just started production, which is why there is no teaser or trailer yet. The new season is expected to release by mid-2022.
Fans who have waited eleven years for something new in Sex and The City will have to wait a little while longer for the new season. But it will be worth the wait, and it will be a fantastic return for the series and the beloved cast members! Stay tuned for more updates!
