Confirmed! Sarah Jessica Parker Spills Details On 'Sex And The City' Reboot, Including Timeline, Mr. Big's Return & Potential Cameos
Grab your cosmos, ladies — Sex and the City is officially getting a reboot!
As OK! previously reported, rumor had it that Sarah Jessica Parker, Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon would reprise their roles on HBO Max, and now the network has confirmed that the 10-episode series will be titled And Just Like That.
Michael Patrick King is set to return as executive producer, but Kim Cattrall, a.k.a. Samantha Jones, will not be coming back.
The reboot will follow Carrie Bradshaw, Miranda Hobbes and Charlotte York as they navigate life in their 50s.
Parker, Nixon and Davis also took to social media to confirm the news, and many readers may have picked up on the cryptic message they left on social media in December.
"I couldn’t help but wonder … where are they now?" Parker teased on Instagram.
Parker even answered some fans' questions on social media and admitted they don't have a set time schedule for the show just yet and said she was sharing "no more secrets."
Andy Cohen commented, "2021 LOOKING UP," to which Parker replied, "@bravoandy perhaps another cameo??? X."
After one fan said they will miss Cattrall/Samantha, Parker said, "We will too ... We loved her so."
"I don't dislike her. I've never said that," she said to another fan, referring to their infamous feud. "Never would. Samantha isn't part of this story. But she will always be part of us. No matter where we are or what we do. X."
Will Mr. Big return? "Wait and see," she teased.
"We have some new stories to tell. We are excited. X," she added.
"You, me, New York ... anything is possible," Nixon wrote. "See you at the table read!!!! X," Parker commented.
"Well this year just got a little better....." one fan gushed. "So happy but no Samantha won’t be the same," another lamented. "I was just talking about this, and how amazing it would be!!! Yes!!!" another commented.

Last year, Parker told Entertainment Tonight that she "wouldn’t call it a reboot, I would call it a 'revisit'" and was down for filming some episodes. However, it's no surprise that Cattrall will not return since she made it clear she is not on good terms with Parker.
Cattrall told the Los Angeles Times that everything she’s said on the matter is on Google and "I just don’t have any regrets."
Cattrall even snapped at Parker when she sent her condolences after the death of her brother in 2018. "Your continuous reaching out is a painful reminder of how cruel you really were then and now," she said. "Let me make this VERY clear. (If I haven’t already) You are not my family. You are not my friend."
"I grew up with these characters, and I can’t wait to see how their story has evolved in this new chapter, with the honesty, poignancy, humor and the beloved city that has always defined them," Sarah Aubrey, Head of Original Content at HBO Max, said.
Sex and the City originally ran for six seasons on HBO from 1998 to 2004. The show had two feature films in 2008 and 2010, but the third movie never saw the light of day.
In 2013, The Carrie Diaries launched on the CW, which was a prequel about a young Carrie Bradshaw, who was played by AnnaSophia Robb.
Production of And Just Like That will begin filming in New York in the spring.
