“Sex and the City,” the seminal HBO series that ran from 1998 to 2004 and later featured in two feature films, is returning.
Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis will repeat their original characters for a new 10-episode series, HBO Max told Sunday night. Kim Cattrall, the other star in Sex and the City, who has repeatedly expressed her reluctance to return to the show, is not returning. HBO Max said the revival would be called “And Just Like That …” and that production would begin “late spring” in New York.
“The series will follow Carrie, Miranda and Charlotte on their way from the complicated reality of life and friendship in their thirties to the even more complicated reality of life and friendship in their fifties,” HBO Max said in a statement.
The return of “Sex and the City” is just the most recent revival for HBO Max as the eight-month-old streaming service tries to bounce back from a sluggish start. Executives for HBO Max are also making a new “Gossip Girl” series and have signed up for a “Friends” meetup special.
Michael Patrick King, a top producer on the original series and the films “Sex and the City,” will return as executive producer.
