The new Sex and The City Reboot gets a teaser trailer and a release date!

The new Sex and The City Reboot gets a teaser trailer and a release date!

Well, that was quick! The long-awaited Sex and The City reboot 'And Just Like That' feels like it has only begun filming but they've already dropped a trailer and a release date, see for yourself

They’ve been drip-feeding us info on the new SATC sequel, And Just Like That  (honestly the most forgettable TV show title of all time), but it looks like HBO Max is getting ready to air it sooner rather than later.

In a short behind-the-scenes look with star Sarah Jessica Parker, she gives us a quick glimpse into filming and also dropping the surprise that we might actually get to see it before the end of the year! Yes, SJP announced that And Just Like That will premiere on US streaming site in December 2021. Still no word on precisely when it’s coming to Ireland but it’ll likely air on NOWtv and Sky and it’s safe to assume they won’t hang around and miss the Christmas rush.

Take a look at the BTS clip for yourself:

The plot

And of course, we’ve already had a little sample of just what the US streaming giant will be offering as well as a sneaky little look in the Sex and the City reboot below.

Of the plot, what we know is this. The upcoming revival will focus on Carrie, Miranda, and Charlotte “as they navigate the journey from the complicated reality of life and friendship in their 30s to the even more complicated reality of life and friendship in their 50s.”

Parker also told Vanity Fair that COVID-19’s effect on New York City would “obviously be part of the storyline, because that’s the city [these characters] live in. … And how has that changed relationships once friends disappear? I have great faith that the writers are going to examine it all.”

And we’ve had plenty of pics from the NYC sets to glimpse the impossibly chic trio, gorgeous sliver locks and all since filming kicked off last summer.

The wardrobe is no longer an ode to the nineties and is updated for 2021 with Miranda in cream wide-leg pants, Carrie in a tartan skirt and platform heels (of course), and Charlotte in a polka dot off-the-shoulder number.

“And just like that, it was day one!!” Nixon wrote while sharing the photo on Instagram.

And here’s what else we know about the revival:

A hint as to why a beloved character won’t be on the show

HBO’s president of programming, Casey Bloys, said ahead of the reboot announcement, that the network isn’t “trying to re-do” Sex and the City but tell a modern-day tale. “They’re not trying to say that these characters are reliving their 30s. It is very much a story about women in their 50s, and they are dealing with things that people deal with in their 50s.”

Hinting at Samantha’s absence, he added that “just as in real life, people come into your life, people leave. Friendships fade, and new friendships start. So I think it is all very indicative of the real stages, the actual stages of life.”

Key cast members are returning 

Deadline confirmed Chris Noth would be reprising his role as Mr. Big, despite reports initially suggesting otherwise.

In an interview with Page Six, John Corbett confirmed that he will be returning for the revival to reprise his role as Carrie’s ex-fiancé, furniture designer Aidan Shaw.

“I’m going to do the show,” he said, adding that he’d be in more than one episide. “I think I might be in quite a few,” he said.

It’s also been officially confirmed David Eigenberg will reprise his role as Steve Brady with more returning cast members due to make an appearance: Mario Cantone as Anthony Marentino, Willie Garson as Standford Blatch, and Evan Handler as Harry Goldenblatt.

So expect it to arrive everywhere before the end of the year with a total of 10 episodes in the reboot.
