'Sex and the City' Is Making Its Return — Kim Cattrall Is Not

Sex and the City has confirmed a reboot.

After much conversation and speculation, the Sex and the City reboot has been confirmed. In its newest iteration, the popular show will become a limited series for HBO Max who has really been pumping out the content — in addition to the literally perfect Veneno, Gossip Girl is getting a reboot, and It's a Sin is out soon, among other projects. 

The reboot is titled And Just Like That. In it, Carrie Bradshaw, Charlotte York, and Miranda Hobbes will navigate love and friendship in their 50s. All of the original actresses (that's Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon, and Kristin Davis respectively) will reprise their roles. But one Samantha Jones is not returning for the party.

Though Kim Cattrall was certainly a favorite of viewers on the show as well as in the accompanying films, in 2017 she said she would never return. On social media, there has been quite the tension between the members of the cast online. Cattrall has said that her relationship with the rest of the team was "toxic" and that they never were really friends. 

The new iteration will be 10 half-hour episodes according to Variety and is expected to go into production later this year. 

"You, me, New York...anything is possible," Nixon wrote in the caption of a teaser on Instagram.

“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, told Variety in a statement.

In Cattrall's place maybe there's room for more diversity?

"I was always troubled by how undiverse it was," Nixon told Grazia in 2020. "Certainly racially but also how the slice of New York City it was showing was so incredibly affluent. ‘Miranda’s husband was the only representation of anybody who didn’t have money for days. I guess Carrie didn’t have money for days but you would never know it by the way she spent." A year prior, show creator Darren Star said that diversity is "the one thing I probably would have done differently."

Well, here's your chance.
