‘Sex and the City’ Revival Confirmed at HBO Max
“Sex and the City” is getting the revival treatment at HBO Max, Variety has confirmed.
Sarah Jessica Parker also confirmed the long-rumored news on Instagram Sunday with a short teaser. The video cuts between footage of New York City and a computer screen, on which the phrases “And just like that” and “The story continues” are typed out along with Parker’s voiceover. Her post is captioned, “I couldn’t help but wonder… where are they now?” and the account @JustLikeThatMax is tagged, perhaps alluding to the reboot’s title.
“Sex and the City” was created by Darren Star based on Candace Bushnell’s 1997 book of the same name. The original series premiered on HBO in 1998 and ran for six seasons until 2004.
Set in New York City, the show follows four women — Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker), Charlotte York (Kristin Davis), Miranda Hobbes (Cynthia Nixon) and Samantha Jones (Kim Cattrall) — as they navigate love and life, confiding in each other every step of the way. However, Cattrall will not be returning for the reboot.
The show was made into two films, “Sex and the City” in 2008 and “Sex and the City 2” in 2010. A prequel series starring AnnaSophia Robb, “The Carrie Diaries,” also premiered on the CW in 2013.
This marks the latest in a string of reboots for HBO Max, which also has “Gossip Girl” and “True Blood” revivals in the works.
