Popular American romantic comedy-drama television series ‘Sex and the City’ is making a comeback to the small screen, more than 20 years after it made its debut on televisions, prompting reactions online.
However, only three of the four main characters are returning to the new series– Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis reprising their roles as Carrie, Miranda and Charlotte. Kim Cattrall, who played the popular character Samantha, will not feature.
According to reports, the HBO Max project is a 10-episode limited series, which will follow Carrie, Miranda and Charlotte as they navigate their life in their 50s. The production will reportedly start in late spring.
The series is titled ‘And Just Like That’- a nod to one of the show’s original catchphrases, according to a BBC report.
A short trailer of the series was released on January 11.
Watch it here:
While many took to various social media platforms to express excitement over the revival, others argued that that show won’t be the same without Kim Cattrall‘s character Samantha Jones.

The only character I’m concerned about returning for this SEX AND THE CITY reboot is New York City, honestly.
