More than two decades since the show premiered, Sex and the City is getting the revival treatment — like many other iconic TV series from the 90s and early 2000s — on HBO Max. As exciting as that news is, what’s even more intriguing is that the infamous Samantha Jones, played by actress Kim Cattrall, will not be joining the core cast consisting of Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon, and Kristin Davis.
This new chapter, which will be called “And Just Like That…” will see the continuation of the lives of Carrie Bradshaw, Miranda Hobbs, and Charlotte York in the Big Apple. The Internet exploded when the three actresses all promoted a teaser video and subsequently confirmed the absence of Samantha Jones. Naturally, the news was met with mixed reactions despite the public knowledge that Sarah Jessica Parker and Kim Cattrall have had some real-life beef m in the past. Now the question is, will this new chapter survive without the one and only Samantha Jones?
The answer to that can go both ways at this point. Something would definitely be amiss without the unapologetic Samantha Jones but then again, there are still so many stories to be told with just the other ladies’ lives as well. Regardless of how they’ll play it out, what’s also important is how the show would cope with the relevant issues in today’s society. A lot of things may be deemed okay back in the early 2000s, but it could definitely be a major cause for backlash at this time.
Check out this teaser posted on Instagram by the cast of ‘And Just Like That…’ to get a feel of what’s about to come:
When will the Sex and the City reboot air in Australia?
Consisting of 10 episodes with filming slated to begin this March, there’s a big chance that viewers won’t get to see the premiere until next year. Other than confirming the main cast, there’s no other information released about this reboot, whether regarding the storyline (Is Carrie still married to Big? How will they write Samantha off? etc.) or the premiere date.
Australian fans also need not worry about delays in watching this show since most HBO Original shows premiere on the same exact date and time as it does in the US exclusively on Foxtel. For now, we’ll just have to wait and see as more details emerge for this long-awaited reboot.
