And Just Like That... (HBO Max) — Sex and the City revival — premieres 12/9/21

That long-gestating third Sex and the City movie may finally be coming to fruition — as a series (and sans a key player).

HBO Max is reportedly near a deal to revive the iconic comedy franchise as a limited series, with leads Sarah Jessica Parker, Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon set to reprise their signature roles as Carrie, Charlotte and Miranda, respectively. Meanwhile, Kim Cattrall — who has been very public about her desire to put the franchise, her co-stars and her character of Samantha, behind her — is not expected to be involved in the quasi-seventh season.

The New York Post first broke the news.

In an October 2017 interview with Piers Morgan, Cattrall implored SATC‘s creative team — who have previously been taken to task for the series’ poor track record on diversity — to recast the role of Samantha with a non-white actress. “It’s a great part,” she said at the time. “I played it past the finish line and then some, and I loved it. And anotheractress should play it. Maybe they could make it an African-American Samantha Jones, or a Hispanic Samantha Jones.”

The original series, of course, ran for six seasons on HBO and spawned two movies. The show garnered numerous Emmys during its time on the air — including wins for stars Parker and Nixon.

TVLine has reached out to an HBO Max rep for a comment.

Would be interesting to see if it's really going to happen but I am sure that it's not going to be the same anymore. I loved TV shows more than movies.

Sex and the City” is getting the revival treatment at HBO Max, Variety has confirmed.

The new chapter is titled “And Just Like That…” and will star Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis. Kim Cattrall, who played Samantha Jones in the original series, is not returning. Parker, Nixon and Davis will also executive producer, along with Michael Patrick King.

The revival will follow Carrie Bradshaw (Parker), Charlotte York (Davis) and Miranda Hobbes (Nixon) as they navigate love and friendship in their 50s. The series will consist of ten half-hour episodes and is set to begin production in New York City in late spring.

With this cast, it would more accurately be called Abstinence in the City.

Is this a Sex and the City revival or a Golden Girls reboot?

With the title....."And just like that...." how many are going to know right away it's affiliated with Sex and the City? I guess if you're a hardcore fan of the show.

That isn’t really a phase that is inseparable from SatC. If they wanted an iconic phase as the revival title, the obvious choice would have been “I Couldn’t Help But Wonder...”.

I'll admit I'm really curious to see how they write Samantha Jones out of the show. Death from AIDS or cervical cancer would be very realistic for that character but really dark for this show.

I think there was a rumor that, had there been a third movie, it would have followed Carrie as a widow after Mr. Big dies of a heart attack.

Just what everyone was clamoring for, a TV show about the sex lives of fifty year old women, post-pandemic!

I'll give them the benefit of the doubt and assume that one of the reasons they changed the name of the revival (from "Sex and the City" to "And Just Like That") is because of your exact sentiment. And with the removal of Cattrall's character, I'm betting that this revival will de-emphasize the sex aspect quite a bit. The three remaining characters are all married (two of them with children), so there really isn't any new ground for the characters to break concerning sex like they did in the original series -- unless they want to discuss how much less important it is to them now.

Looks like Kristin Davis has had some bad plastic surgery. There’s another recent closeup shot of the three where you can really see it. Such a pity. She was a cute girl and didn’t need it.

Edit: Found the photo.

I've been bingeing the original series on HBOmax. Am I the only one who thinks Carrie is just a selfish bitch?

nope, and thanks to SJP, we don’t have Kim Cattrall in this new thing. Doubt I will even watch.
