  • Sarah Jessica Parker has confirmed a Sex and the City reboot: And Just Like That...
  • The 10-episode limited series will be available on HBO Max.
  • Sarah Jessica Parker, Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon will reprise their roles in the series. Kim Cattrall will not be returning.


Sarah Jessica Parker took to Instagram on Sunday to reveal that a limited series of 10-episodes of Sex and the City has been ordered by the HBO Max video streaming service, reviving the iconic series.

And Just Like That... will see Sarah Jessica Parker, Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon revive their iconic characters and 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".

There will be 10, half-hour episodes that will start production in New York around May.

Kristin Davis, who played Charlotte York and Cynthia Nixon who played Miranda Hobbes joined SJP on social media with posts. Notably absent was Kim Cattrall who over the past few years has distanced herself from Sex and the City where she played Samantha Jones following an ongoing feud with Sarah Jessica Parker.

Sex and the City was created by Darren Star, based on Candace Bushnell's book. Sex and the City executive producer Michael Patrick King will take on the role as showrunner and executive producer once more for And Just Like That... with the three women who will all also get an executive producer credit.

"I couldn't help but wonder… where are they now?" Sarah Jessica Parker wrote on Instagram, noting that And Just Like That... will follow "the next chapter" in the women's lives.

"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," says Sarah Aubrey, HBO Max's head of original content.
