I don’t want to get anyone preemptively excited or anything, but rumor on the streets of Hollywood has it that Sex and the City might be the next classic series to get a reboot, this one over on HBO Max. While nothing has been set in stone, it does seem pretty likely that we’ll get to meet up with Carrie, Miranda, and Charlotte again (more on Samantha later) in the not-too-distant future, and frankly, I’m all for it.
Sarah Jessica Parker has always been game. In fact, in September 2020, she even told Entertainment Tonight that she’d love to go back to the show. However, she was quick to clarify that she “wouldn’t call it a reboot, I would call it a revisit.”
If it happens, it’ll likely be a limited series. Don’t expect to get back with the girls for another six years. According to a Page Six insider, the reboot will be a limited series, meaning it’ll likely only be a single season with very few episodes to it. However, since it hasn’t actually been greenlit yet, anything could happen.
Sadly, we won’t be reunited with Samantha. Kim Cattrall has repeatedly said she has no interest in going back to Sex and the City, so we can pretty much count Samantha out. Given the actress’s bad blood with SJP, I imagine that would make somewhat of an awkward working experience, so this is understandable.
Even SJP wants to know where the women ended up. “I’d like to see where all of them are. I’m curious, the world has changed even since the movie… technology and social media,” she added to Entertainment Tonight. Plus, there’s “sexual politics and the #MeToo movement and Time’s Up… I think Carrie Bradshaw would just be so greedy to share her feelings and thoughts.”
Here’s hoping they make this official soon (and we can wipe the bad taste of the second movie out of our collective memory forever).
