And just like that, HBO has rebooted Sex and the City with a new original series. Based on the book by Candace Bushnell and the original TV show created by Darren Star, the 10-episode, half-hour series began production in New York this spring and is now streaming on HBO Max.
The original show spawned 2 films,
a prequel show, and a third film that was later scrapped. And Just Like That follows Carrie, Miranda, and Charlotte as they navigate “the even more complicated reality of life and friendship in their 50s."

Absent is Samantha (Kim Cattrall). SJP replied to a fan who claimed she didn’t like Cattrall: "I've never said that. Never would... She will always be part of us." In 2017, Cattrall told Piers Morgan, “We've been colleagues and, in some way, it's a very healthy place to be.”
Chris Noth reprises his role as Mr. Big, who married Carrie Bradshaw in the first Sex and the City movie. "How could we ever do a new chapter of the Sex and the City story without our Mr. Big?" says executive producer Michael Patrick King.
David Eigenberg and Evan Handler also reprise their roles. Mario Cantone returns as Anthony Marentino, who married the late Willie Garson’s Stanford Blatch. The show also adds Nicole Ari Parker, Sarita Choudury, and Sara Ramírez.
