There’s a new ‘And Just Like That’ documentary and we already have a trailer
Giving viewers a look into the making of the new series, the documentary goes behind the scenes of the reboot to find out how the cast really feels about revisiting their old characters.
With just one episode of the new Sex and the City reboot to go, fans were already starting to get a little angsty about what they’d do to fill the void that our favourite trio of New Yorkers would leave behind. SJP plans on sticking around for a little while longer though and producers have just dropped the trailer for a new And Just Like That documentary.
Coinciding its release with the final episode of the first season, the documentary will premiere this Thursday, giving fans a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the new show. According to Deadline, viewers can expect to see interviews with new and returning cast members as well as writers, costume designers, producers, and crew including the core three – Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis.
Che Diaz isn’t going anywhere either and Sara Ramírez will also feature alongside Mario Cantone, David Eigenberg, Evan Handler, Nicole Ari Parker, Karen Pittman, Sarita Choudhury, and Michael Patrick King.
In the trailer, Parker, who also executive produced the documentary, can be heard saying that she was both “terrified and excited” at the prospect of reprising her role over two decades after the fact. Even the late Willie Garson who played Carrie’s lovable best friend, Stanford Blatch, makes a brief appearance. Sadly written out of the show after he passed away from pancreatic cancer last year, SJP described her grief as “unbearable”, writing that “sometimes silence is a statement. Of the gravity. The anguish. The magnitude of the loss of a 30+ year friendship”.
Chris Noth, however, is noticeably absent from the trailer. Reportedly edited out of the season finale in light of the recent sexual assault allegations against him, it’s probably unlikely that he will feature but that has neither been officially confirmed nor denied as of yet.
Also showcasing the fabulous fashion that always keeps fans coming back for more, costume designers, Molly Rogers and Danny Santiago, will be on hand to talk through some of this season’s wardrobe choices.
As for what will happen in the reboot’s final episode? Well, who’s to say but we can only hope that a few of the loose ends are tied up. Aidan Shaw still hasn’t poked his head around the corner, and some fans even think that Kim Catrall might make a comeback for the occasion… which would definitely set the show up for a second season, so you never know.
Previously commenting as to whether the series will continue beyond the first 10 episodes, HBO and HBO Max chief content officer Casey Bloys told Vulture that renewing was “certainly a conversation we’ll have – for sure. But we haven’t decided anything or done anything”. A source also recently told Page Six, “the creative conversations haven’t happened yet, but everyone is feeling good about the show.”
