Sex and the City Is Reportedly Adding Three Women of Color to the Main Cast

After literally years of speculation and very recent rumors, Sex and the City will be returning to our screens. Yes, that’s right: A revival of the series, titled And Just Like That, is coming to HBO Max. 

“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,” Sarah Aubrey, the head of original content at HBO Max, said in a statement, per Deadline

Here’s everything we know about the next chapter in the lives of Carrie Bradshaw, Charlotte York, and Miranda Hobbes. 

Sex and the City is coming back! Yes, we’ve said that already, but we can hardly believe it. Cynthia Nixon tweeted the news on January 10. “Anything is possible. This is New York,” she wrote alongside a teaser. 

“And just like that,” someone types as we hear the voice of Sarah Jessica Parker and the sounds of NYC. “The story continues…”

What’s it called? According to Deadline, the revival series is called And Just Like That. It has its own Twitter account, but you can also call it SATC: Next Chapter if Nixon’s hashtag and the teaser are anything to go by.

Who’s involved? Nixon tagged Sarah Jessica Parker as well as Kristin Davis in her post but notably left out Kim Cattrall. Deadline confirms the actor, who played Samantha Jones in the original six seasons and two movies, will not be returning. Is anyone really surprised?

Although Darren Star, who also created Emily in Paris, was the original creator of the series, it’s being reported that Michael Patrick King will serve as executive producer along with Nixon, Parker, and Davis. King previously directed multiple episodes of the series as well as both movies. 

What are they doing about Samantha? In February 2021, HBO Max chief content officer Casey Bloys told TV Line, “Just as in real life, people come into your life, people leave. Friendships fade, and new friendships start. So I think it is all very indicative of the real stages, the actual stages of life…. They’re trying to tell an honest story about being a woman in her 50s in New York. So it should all feel somewhat organic, and the friends that you have when you’re 30, you may not have when you’re 50.”
