Looks like 2021 might be better than 2020 after all with the recent news that Sex And The City will be returning to our screens, and not in a disastrous film format where Carrie and her gal pals end up in Bora Bora mid-mid-life crises, but in an actual television series where Mrs. Bradshaw might be musing over #MeToo. The joy!
The news came from Deadline, who confirmed via HBO in late December and will see almost all original cast members return to their roles. Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon, and Kristin Davis will return, however Kim Cattrall - who allegedly has some rather hefty beef with Parker - will not. Which begs the question, who will be the sexually liberated, modern ass woman to fill Cattrall's iconic shoes? Will she be replaced, or axed from the narrative altogether?
Back in September 2020, Parker hinted at a bonus series while talking about the sequel to Hocus Pocus, telling Entertainment Tonight, "I think to do some episodes of Sex and the City, I wouldn't call it a reboot, I would call it a ‘revisit.’”
“I’d like to see where all of them are,” she continued. “I’m curious. The world has changed even since the movie. I mean, the world has changed so much; technology and social media. Those characters never talked about social media, which I think would be really interesting, and also sexual politics and the #MeToo movement. I think Carrie Bradshaw would just be so greedy to share her feelings and thoughts.” We too can't help but wonder, is it the world that's changing, or is it Carrie that will have changed?
To top it all off, Parker released a short teaser clip via her Instagram to get everyone absolutely riled up for the future series, which seems to be titled Just Like That, and just like that! The internet is having another meltdown.

There are no details about a release date, confirmed cast (other than Parker, Nixon and Davis), or really, anything else, but for now, let's cling to the knowledge that this is happening, and no Emily's or Paris' can fill the void we've missed for so long. Stay tuned!
