After a near 17-year hiatus (or nine, if we’re counting the films), Carrie Bradshaw, Miranda Hobbes and Charlotte York will once again grace our screens in HBO Max’s Sex and the City revival, “And Just Like That…”.

In a brand new chapter, the series – based on the original 1997 book by Candace Bushnell and original television series by Darren Star – is set to follow Carrie, Miranda and Charlotte as they navigate the complications of life, love and friendship in their 30s and then, the even more tumultuous reality of life in their 50s. 

“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, humour and the beloved city that has always defined them,” said Sarah Aubrey, Head of Original Content, HBO Max. 

The news was announced by leading women Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis via Instagram this week.

We can’t help but wonder what a story without the drama-fuelled, PR maven Samantha Jones (played by Kim Cattrall) looks like, but if the fashion is just as fabulous, we’ll know we’ll be counting down the days ‘til airtime. 

Sex and the City was a HBO television series created by Darren Star, in adaptation of Candace Bushnell’s book of the same name. The series ran for six seasons from 1998 to 2004, and was followed by two films in 2008 and 2010. 

And Just Like That…” is scheduled to begin production in late spring in New York (New Zealand’s autumn). The Max Original series will consist of ten, half-hour episodes executive produced by Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon, Kristin Davis and Michael Patrick King.
