Who's excited to see Carrie Bradshaw, Miranda Hobbes, and Charlotte York again?

Sex and the City stars Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon, and Kristin Davis have reunited for the first table read of HBO Max’s highly-anticipated revival series And Just Like That…

Parker, who played Carrie Bradshaw in the original series, posted a photo of the script on Friday, June 11. “1st Table Read. Got here to work way too early. Nerves all a wonderful jumble,” she wrote. 

On her Instagram, she also shared a snap with Nixon and Davis, who play Miranda Hobbes and Charlotte York, respectively. 

“Together again. Read through our first episodes. Alongside all the fells and our newest cast members. Like an ice cream sundae,” she said in the caption. 

Nixon also reposted the photo on her account and wrote, “Friendship never goes out of style.” 

HBO Max first confirmed that a new Sex and the City series was in the works last January 2021. The 10-episode, half-hour series will follow the lives of Carrie, Miranda, and Charlotte as they continue to “navigate the journey from the complicated reality of life and friendship in their 50s.”

Kim Cattrall, who played Samantha Jones, is not reprising her role in the upcoming series. 

And Just Like That… will see the return of Chris Noth as John James “Mr. Big” Preston, Mario Cantone as Anthone Marentino, David Eigenberg as Steve Brady, Willie Garson as Stanford Blatch, and Evan Handler as Harry Goldenblatt. Grey’s Anatomy alum Sara Ramirez will join the reboot as Che Diaz, the first openly non-binary character in the series. 

Executive producer Michael King shared how excited he was to have most of the original stars in the upcoming revival. “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,” he told Deadline. 

HBO Max has yet to announce a release date for And Just like That…

Sex and the City was a show created by Darren Star based on the book by Candice Bushnell. The show first aired from 1998 to 2004 on HBO and has since resulted in two spin-off films.

A prequel called The Carrie Diaries aired from 2013 to 2014 on the CW. – Rappler.com
