And just like that… Carrie Bradshaw is back to walking the streets of New York City in her iconic stiletto shoes with (most of) her best friends by her side.
Carrie (played by Sarah Jessica Parker), Charlotte York (played by Kristin Davis), and Miranda Hobbes (played by Cynthia Nixon) are back in action. HBO Max dropped the first image from the upcoming “Sex and the City” reboot “And Just Like That…” on Friday, showing the central trio as their iconic characters.
They all look a little bit different – it has been 17 years since the original series’ finale and almost a decade since the second film premiered – but they’re unmistakably familiar. Miranda is still wearing her corporate chic trousers, Charlotte is back in her well-tailored skirts, and Carrie, true to form, has the most daring shoes of the group.
Unfortunately, it looks like we’ll have to wait a bit longer for a full trailer. The former “SATC” cast members shared the first and only teaser for the revival in January.
The short video featured a heavy dose of nostalgia alongside iconic NYC landmarks like the Empire State Building, the Brooklyn Bridge, and the Chrysler Building. Best of all, it had a voiceover from Carrie with her iconic line ” … and just like that,” which inspired the reboot’s title.
Many “SATC” stars are set to return to the reboot alongside Parker, Nixon, and Davis, including Chris Noth as Mr. Big, John Corbett as Aidan Shaw, and Willie Garson as Stanford Blatch. Evan Handler will also be back as Charlotte’s husband Harry, as will David Eigenberg who plays Miranda’s husband Steve Brady.
Samantha Jones (played by Kim Cattrall) and her witty remarks will, however, remain absent from the reboot, reportedly because of a rumored decades-long feud between Parker and Cattrall.
HBO executive Casey Bloys told TVLine in February that Samantha would not be recast. Instead, the character will be written out of the storyline.
“Just as in real life, people come into your life, people leave,” Bloys told the publication. “Friendships fade, and new friendships start. So I think it is all very indicative of the real stages, the actual stages of life.”
The reboot featuring the rest of the cast is a limited series, with 10 episodes that are each 30-minutes long. There’s no release date yet, although production started in June with Parker sharing a photo of herself with Davis and Nixon from the table read.
