HBO Max announced “Sex and the City” reboot 01-10-2021
On Sunday HBO Max announced it had green lit a “Sex and the City” reboot, titled “And Just Like That…”
Michael Patrick King is executive producing. Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis will star as well as executive produce.
A notable absence from the roster is “Sex and the City” alum Kim Cattrall, who played the titular role of Samantha Jones in the original series.
According to the press release, the new series “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.”
The half-hour, ten-episode series is scheduled to begin production in late spring.
Based on the series by Candace Bushnell, “Sex and the City” made waves for its frank approach to dating and sexuality when it premiered in 1998.
Over the course of its six-season run, the series was nominated for more than 50 Emmy Awards and won seven.
