The ladies of Sex and the City are returning on TV with a revival of the beloved series called And Just Like That…

The 10-episode, half-hour series will be shown on HBO Max and is reportedly scheduled to begin production in New York in late spring. A premiere date has not been announced yet.

Sarah Jessica Parker, Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon will reprise their roles as Carrie Bradshaw, Charlotte York and Miranda Hobbes respectively, minus Kim Cattrall, who played Samantha Jones.

“The 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,” according to the show’s synopsis.

It is also being described as “a new chapter of the groundbreaking HBO series.”

The original Sex and the City series (1998 to 2004) and its stars Sarah Jessica Parker, Kristin Davis, Cynthia Nixon and Kim Cattrall. The revival show will push through without Cattrall in its roster.

Without Cattrall in the roster of the show’s stars, fans wonder how the storyline will be treated. Others speculate Samantha will be killed off the script or a new actress will play the character.

Cattrall had repeatedly expressed in several interviews since 2016 that she thinks her time with the series is done, following years of speculations of a fallout between her and Parker.

Emmy Award-winning Michael Patrick King will be the show’s executive producer together with Parker, Davis and Nixon. According to the Hollywood Reporter, the creator of the original series Darren Starr (Younger and Emily in Paris) will not be involved with the show as he has a current deal with ViacomCBS.
