When is the Sex and the City reunion on TV and will Kim Cattrall be in it?
SEX and the City was one of the biggest shows of its time, and still to this day has millions of fans around the world.
So you can imagine our excitement when news broke that the raunchy series is coming back for a revival.
When is the Sex and the City reunion on TV?
Leading lady Sarah Jessica Parker took to Instagram on January 11, 2021 with a teaser for the new series, writing: "I couldn't help but wonder… where are they now? X, SJ".
The leading lady, who plays Carrie Bradshaw in the television series, is set to makes a comeback, as the show returns under the name, Sex and the City: And Just Like That.
An exact date for the big comeback is yet to be revealed.
We are guessing it will either be late 2021 or early 2022.
Where can I watch Sex and the City: And Just Like That?
In the US, the show will drop on streaming site HBO Max.
Unfortunetly this site isn't available in the UK.
However, HBO shows can be accessed in Britain through both Sky and Now TV.
Who's in the cast of Sex and the City: And Just Like That?
The show will feature three of the four women who were originally in the hit series.
Those confirmed to be in the cast are:
- Sarah Jessica Parker as Carrie Bradshaw
- Cynthia Nixon as Miranda Hobbes
- Kristin Davis as Charlotte York
The new series is also likely to feature some familiar faces from the original show and movies like Chris Noth and Mr Big and David Eigenberg as Steve Brady.
Why is Kim Cattrall not coming back?
In a statement, the series was described as “following Carrie (Sarah), Miranda (Cynthia) and Charlotte (Kristin) as they navigate … the complicated reality of life and friendship in their fifties” – and there was no mention of Samantha Jones, played by Kim Cattrall.
When one fan suggested Samantha should be recast as Jennifer Coolidge, but Sarah told the follower the sex-crazed character's story "isn't part" of the new series.
Kim's absence also isn't a surprise, as she's been in a public feud with Sarah for years.
Back in 2018, Sarah told Watch What Happens Live host Andy Cohen that she was "heartbroken" after Kim said never friends with her co-stars.
Then in 2019, Kim shut down any possibility of her reprising the role of Samantha ever again.
During an interview with The Observer, she said: "I went past the finish line playing Samantha Jones because I loved Sex and the City. It was a blessing in so many ways but after the second movie I’d had enough.
"I couldn’t understand why they wouldn’t just replace me with another actress instead of wasting time bullying. No means no.”
What will the new Sex and the City series be about?
This is yet to be revealed, but we need to remember all three women are married, two of them have children and they are now in the fifties.
Most of the original HBO series followed Carrie on her journey to finding a lasting love, though maybe the reboot can focus on the women finding a new friend to fill Samantha's shoes.
After all, Carrie once said: "I’m looking for love. Real love. Ridiculous, inconvenient, consuming, can’t-live-without-each-other love."
When Sex and the City was originally broadcast?
The original series ran on HBO from 1998-2004 and aired in the UK on Channel 4.
Fans were thrilled when the show returned for a movie version in 2008.
In 2010 it was back on the big screen with Sex and the City 2 – although this sequel was not as well received.
