SATC reboot And Just Like That release date and how to watch
(Pocket-lint) – Sex and the City is coming back for a special reunion series, that’s dropping the Sex and the City name and getting the title “And Just Like That” – one of narrator Carrie Bradshaw’s classic sayings. Here’s everything you need to know about Sex and the City’s next chapter, And Just Like That, including when it is due to be released, where you will be able to watch it and where to catch up on previous Sex and the City episodes and films.
Sex and the City And Just Like That release date: When is it out?
The Sex and the City reboot series – And Just Like That – has been confirmed as happening and HBO Max has revealed it will start streaming in December, though a specific date has yet to be shared. Production has started, and Sarah Jessica Parker has shared a snap on her Instagram, while HBO Max has also shared a video on YouTube with SJP announcing the release date.
How and where to watch SATC And Just Like That?
The streaming service is lapping up the 90s nostalgia, with Friends: The Reunion having aired on 27 May 2021. In the UK, HBO Max has a programming deal with Sky, but the deal is only for the HBO Max originals. That means Sky would likely have to strike a separate deal to run And Just Like That, as it had to do with Friends: The Reunion.
How many episodes will there be of Sex and the City And Just Like that?
There will be 10 episodes of the Sex and the City reboot, And Just Like That. The episodes will be 30 minutes each, like the original Sex and the City episodes were. These 10 episodes will add to the 94 episodes across six seasons of Sex and the City that ran until 2004.
There are also two films.
What is expected to happen in Sex and the City 3 And Just Like That?
The Sex and the City revival show And Just Like That will focus on Carrie, Charlottle and Miranda – Samantha isn’t in it – navigating life and friendship in their 50s, 20 years on from when they did the same in their 30s during the initial six seasons of the show. WarnerMedia said in a statement about the show: “The new Max Original series is based on the book, ‘Sex and the City,’ by Candice Bushnell and the original TV series created by Darren Star. The series will follow 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.”
Regarding the absence of Samantha Jones, TV Line said Casey Bloys, HBO Max Chief Content Officer, said: “[EP Sarah Jessica Parker and King] are trying to tell an honest story about being a woman in her 50s in New York. So it should all feel somewhat organic, and the friends that you have when you’re 30, you may not have when you’re 50.” Sarah Aubrey, Head of Original Content at HBO Max, said: “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, humour and the beloved city that has always defined them.”
While there is no official trailer yet, Sarah Jessica Parker did share a teaser on Instagram, though it doesn’t give much away, except saying “the story continues…”. There has also been a script leak, which does tell us a little more, though includes spoilers so skip down to the next section if you don’t want to know. Based on the script leak, Carrie and Mr.Big are divorced and they appear to be in the middle of a messy divorce in the show, which is supported by a snap of the two filiming in New York and not looking too happy with each other.
Surely it’s not the end for them though?
Who will be cast in Sex and the City And Just Like That?
Sarah Jessica Parker (Carrie Bradshaw), Cynthia Nixon (Miranda Hobbes) and Kristin Davis (Charlotte York) have all confirmed they will be returning for the Sex and the City reboot, but Kim Cattrall (Samantha Jones) will not be returning. It’s rumoured the first episode will address Jones’ absence. Chris North (Mr Big) will be back though, with executive producer Michael Patrick King saying: “I’m thrilled to be working with Chris again on ‘And Just Like That…’ How could we ever do a new chapter of the ‘Sex And The City’ story without our Mr.
Big?”. John Corbett (Aidan Shaw), who plays Carrie’ ex-fiancee will also be returning. Mario Cantone, David Eigenberg, Willie Garson and Evan Handler are also all confirmed to be reprising their roles in the reuniuon series as Anthony Marentino, Steve Brady, Stanford Blatch and Harry Goldenblatt, respectively.
There are rumoured to be several new characters too – according to TV Line – and there’s also some chatter of Jennifer Hudson coming back as Louise from St Louis. Sara Ramierz will also play “Che Diaz, a non-binary, queer, standup comidian that hosts a podcast on which Carrie Bradshaw is regulary featured”, HBO Max announced. HBO Max chief content officer, Casey Bloys, previously said Sarah Jessica Parker and Michael Patrick King “didn’t want to tell a story with all-white writers or an all-white cast” because “it’s not reflective of New York.
So they are being very, very conscious about understanding that New York has to reflect the way New York looks today.”
Is there a trailer for And Just Like That?
No trailer just yet, but HBO Max did release a video on its YouTube channel confirming the month the show will begin streaming and there are some snippets in the video of the characters on set.
