Immediately, longtime fans were quick to share their excitement for the new installment, with Parker’s post alone receiving over 1 million likes in less than 24 hours.
“We have some new stories to tell,” Parker wrote on Instagram. “We are excited.”
So far, Parker has been spotted sporting multiple Carrie Bradshaw-esque looks on the set of the show’s reboot.
“Anything is possible. This is New York,” she captioned a tweet of the trailer for “Just Like That…”
Since the original show aired, Nixon has continued to act while being active in politics. A member of the New York chapter of the Democratic Socialists of America, Nixon ran against Governor Andrew Cuomo in New York’s Democratic primary election in 2018. Though she lost the primary, she has remained a staunch figure in progressive politics.
She was also seen on the set of “And Just Like That…” in July.
Not much is known about her character’s arc in the reboot. However, it can likely be assumed that her story will pick up where the final movie left off as she raises her two daughters, Lily and Rose, with her husband, Harry Goldenblatt.
Davis was spotted on the set of the show’s reboot walking a French bulldog, hinting that her Cavalier King Charles spaniel from the original series, Elizabeth Taylor, will not be making an appearance.
While Parker, Nixon, and Davis are returning to their iconic roles, Kim Cattrall, who played sex-positive publicist Samantha Jones, is not. In an interview with TVLine in February, HBO Max’s chief content officer, Casey Bloys, explained how the show would address Cattrall’s absence.
“Just as in real life, people come into your life, people leave,” Bloys said. “Friendships fade, and new friendships start. So I think it is all very indicative of the real stages, the actual stages of life.”
Noth played the role of Carrie’s emotionally unavailable love interest in all six seasons of the original show and in both of the feature films.
In August, he was spotted on set alongside Sarah Jessica Parker, notably not wearing a wedding band.
Rumors have swirled for weeks about the fate of Mr. and Mrs. Preston after a portion of the show’s script was reported on by Page Six. The leaked pages made it appear as though the couple’s marriage was on the rocks or over entirely.
“I’m going to do the show,” Corbett, 59, told Page Six in April. “I think I might be in quite a few [episodes]. I like all those people, they’ve been very nice to me.”
“[Cynthia Nixon’s] a dream to work with,” he told Us Weekly.
In July, he was seen on set with fellow “SATC” stars.
“I’m schvitzing like a pudding at a picnic THIS IS AMAZING,” one fan commented.
Others wondered about his storyline and how it would play into the other characters’. Referencing Goldenblatt’s career as a divorce attorney, one user commented, “Will somebody be needing his services?”
Ang also shared the news herself on Instagram, writing, “And just like that… I’m crying YET AGAIN.” She added, “Thank you to the @justlikethatmax family for taking me in, and giving Lily such a wonderful voice.”
Ang, 25, may be recognizable to viewers for her roles in “Over the Moon” and “Ramy.”
In January, the actor posted a photo to his own Instagram account with a headline announcing “And Just Like That…” Kristin Davis commented on the post, saying, “Of course Stanford will be back !!”
“Everyone at ‘And Just Like That…’ is thrilled to be able to continue the storylines of these beloved ‘Sex and the City’ characters with the actors who made them so lovable,” King said of Cantone, Handler, Eigenberg, and Garson’s casting, according to Deadline.
In “And Just Like That…”, Ramirez will play a nonbinary, queer stand-up comedian who hosts a podcast on which Carrie Bradshaw is a regular guest, according to Deadline.
“Everyone at ‘And Just Like That…’ is beyond thrilled that a dynamically talented actor such as Sara Ramírez has joined the ‘Sex and the City’ family,” executive producer Michael Patrick King said in a statement. “Sara is a one-of-a-kind talent, equally at home with comedy and drama – and we feel excited and inspired to create this new character for the show.”
HBO Max chief content officer Casey Bloys told TV Line that Parker and King “didn’t want to tell a story with all-white writers or an all-white cast” because “it’s not reflective of New York.”
“They are being very, very conscious about understanding that New York has to reflect the way New York looks today,” he said.
The group appeared to be filming one of the show’s iconic brunch scenes at a New York City restaurant.
According to Deadline, Parker will play a Park Avenue mother of three and documentarian.
