And just like that, the queen returns to her New York…Carrie Bradshaw is finally back. After six successful seasons and two sequel movies, “Sex and the City” seemed to have reached the end of the road. However, fans and even some of the show’s stars were never able to fully accept that Carrie Bradshaw’s story was over.
After 11 years, we are finally getting what we have been waiting for. HBO Max revealed at the beginning of October that the “Sex and the City” sequel series will premiere this December on their platform.
The series titled “And Just Like That…” will watch as Carrie Bradshaw, Charlotte York and Miranda Hobbes continue to navigate their lives as they balance careers, love, family and friends. The real question is, will Sarah Jessica Parker be reprising her role as Carrie?
Not only is SJP starring in the series as Carrie, but she is also an executive producer. Don’t worry, Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon will also be returning as Charlotte and Miranda, respectively. Kim Cattrall will not be returning to play Samantha Jones the character will not be featured in “And Just Like That…” at all.
Footage of the actresses on set has been spreading on social media and fans can’t help but speculate what the sequel’s plot will entail. One thing is for sure, Carrie still has her style.
“‘Sex and the City’ has always been about the friendships that sustain you,” Parker said to Vogue Magazine. “That, and the promise and potential [New York City] holds.”
In today’s day and age, a show about rich white women will just not cut it. The “And Just Like That…” team worked hard to diversify the cast and crew of the series. Samantha Irby, a new staff writer for the show, said to Vogue, “Approaching the Black and brown people on the show this time around, it was important to me to make them feel real and not just plopped in.”
As good changes come with the new series, the best parts of “Sex and the City” have all been carefully preserved. The jokes, friendships and fashion are all a part of “And Just Like That…” too.
Michael Patrick King, a previous producer and writer for “Sex and the City” and current member of the “And Just Like That…” team, told Vogue, “I like that we’re not trying to youthify the show… I think it’s revolutionary to do a show about middle-aged women.”
Whether you’re a Carrie Bradshaw stan or not, this show seems like it will definitely be one to watch.
