With the original Sex and the City series ending its run in 2004, it’s taken 17 years for Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker), Charlotte York (Kristin Davis), and Miranda Hobbes (Cynthia Nixon) to television (or primarily streaming) on HBO Max.
Given the time the show has been out of collective consciousness and pop culture, there still is a rich vein of themes to be gleaned from the show which still is highly relevant today. Thus, it comes as no surprise that Sex and the City is getting a revival and not a reboot.
Titled as And Just Like That… the show will see the return of the original cast sans Kim Cattrall who played Samantha Jones.
The Sex and the City we knew and how it ultimately aged up has certainly changed with the times. Many fans who grew up resonating with Carrie now relate better with Miranda simply illustrates the evolving values as everyone moves on to their next stage in life.
If anything, the revival is vindication for the community which has been keeping the flame going on Tumblr and Instagram, with one of the biggest being @everyoutfitonsatc.
The new series will consist of 10 half-hour episodes and production starting in late spring. Thus, the earliest we could expect the new show to drop would be optimistically 2022.
With WarnerMedia dipping into their rich library of IPs, Sex and the City will find itself in a vastly different landscape since its debut. But, it could very well be the secret ingredient in winning the streaming wars.
