Clear Your Schedule, The SATC Reboot Is Landing SO Soon

The nostalgia will be at an all time high.

Sex and the City was a cultural landmark. Hands down one of the most popular TV shows, launching two spin-off films, a make-up collection, and even a fragrance. But despite all this, we can’t help but wish for more.

And luckily there will be more. A SATC reboot called, And Just Like That is set to be released in December. It will premiere on HBO in America, but no word on where it will broadcast on this side of the Atlantic. Most HBO content goes to Sky Atlantic and Now TV so presumably it will be available to watch there this December, in line with its US release.

RTÉ is also pretty good at getting their hands on highly-anticipated content like this so fingers crossed, it will be available there too.

The new chapter of Sex and the City will follow the story of the original. Chronicling Carrie, Miranda and Charlotte as they navigate the complicated reality of life and friendship in their 50s instead of their 30s.

And no that’s not a typo, Samantha will not be making an appearance in the reboot. Actress Kim Cattrall declined to return, however, Kim’s amazing acting skills are still able to be enjoyed on her new show Filthy Rich, which is available to watch on Disney+.

While Samantha won’t be there, some new characters will. Sara Ramírez, best known for their role in Grey’s Anatomy as Callie Torres is joining the cast. They will be playing Che Diaz, a non-binary, queer stand-up comedian and podcast host, who Carrie joins for their podcast.

Also joining the cast is Empire’s Nicole Ari Parker, who will play a Park Avenue mother of three and documentarian.

Another addition to the reboot’s cast is Sarita Choudhury, of Little Fires Everywhere fame. Sarita will play Seema Patel, a real estate broker, while Karen Pittman is joining as Dr. Nya Wallace, a law professor at Columbia University.

While all of these new stars are joining the show, some old stars are returning. John Corbett, who played Aidan Shaw, will be appearing in “quite a few” episodes of the reboot, as will “Mr Big” star Chris Noth.

Evan Handler who starred as Charlotte’s husband, Harry Goldenblatt will also be back. As will David Eigenberg, who played Miranda’s love interest Steve Brady.

Willie Garson, who played Stanford Blatch, was returning to the show and had already filmed some scenes, he tragically past away in September.

Meanwhile, Mario Cantone, who played Stanford’s husband and Charlotte’s friend Anthony Marentino, will also make appearances. Along with Bridget Moynahan, who played Big’s wife before they divorced.

The new series will follow the structure of the original, with episodes still being half an hour long. There will be ten episodes of And Just Like That’s first season. The reboot has been described as a limit-series, so it’s still unknown if there are plans for more than one season.

While the city being referred to in Sex in the City, was New York, this season will have some scenes in Paris. Any ideas on how that could work into the storyline? Carrie and Big had their most iconic moment there during season six of the original, when Big travelled to the city of light to tell Carrie, she was “the one.” So perhaps the couple want to recreate that moment? Who knows, but we’re excited.
