Fans have been obsessed with the ‘Sex And The City’ franchise ever since it premiered on American television network HBO back in 1998. The series was created by television visionary Darren Star and was based on Candace Bushnell’s 1997 book of the same name.
With a successful series and two feature films under its belt, ‘Sex And The City’ is getting it’s highly-anticipated revival on streaming service HBO Max – and it promises to be an apt adaptation of the series we fell in love with.
The new chapter is titled “And Just Like That…” and will star Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis. Kim Cattrall, who played Samantha Jones in the original series, is not returning.
The revival will follow Carrie Bradshaw (Parker), Charlotte York (Davis) and Miranda Hobbes (Nixon) as they navigate love and friendship in their 50s. The series will consist of 10 half-hour episodes and is set to begin production in New York City in the next few months.
“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 in a statement. Parker, Nixon and Davis will also executive produce, along with Michael Patrick King.
HBO Max is also planning ‘Gossip Girl’ and ‘True Blood’ revivals.
