Fans already know about the Sex and the City revival, but Sarah Jessica Parker is teasing new details. She says the revival will “obviously” address the COVID-19 pandemic. Planned to air on HBO Max, the ten-episode, half-hour series is titled, And Just Like That. Meanwhile, production of the revival series is set to start in New York in the late spring.
Sex and the City revival
It is almost three weeks since Sarah Jessica Parker and her co-stars, Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon confirmed the revival. Parker, 55, spoke to Vanity Fair to let fans know what they can expect from the series. This includes whether or not the COVID-19 pandemic will be addressed in the revival series.
Speaking of the New York City-based show, Parker said the pandemic will, “obviously be part of the storyline because that’s the city [these characters] live in.” She also believes the show will attempt to answer how COVID-19 has “changed relationships once friends disappear.” Parker says she has great faith the “writers are going to examine it all.”
Revival titled And Just Like That
Parker did say she is still awaiting sight of the scripts for the revival, titled And Just Like That. However, she and her co-stars are looking forward to seeing where their characters stand now that they have reached their fifties.
Parker will reprise her role as Carrie Bradshaw, while Davis, 55, and Nixon, 54, will return in their original roles of Charlotte York Goldenblatt and Miranda Hobbes.
People quotes Parker as telling Vanity Fair that she, Cynthia and Kristin are all excited about the time that has passed. She said, “You know, who are they in this world now? Have they adapted? What part have they played?”
What will life be like for Carrie, Miranda and Charlotte?
They will find out where they have “fallen short as women, as friends,” and how they are finding their way. Parker asks if they move with momentum. Alternatively, are they like some people who are “confused, threatened and nervous” about what is happening in this world. She added that she is curious and excited to see how the writers imagine these women in today’s world.
Parker also asked other questions regarding the lives of Carrie, Miranda and Charlotte. She asks what their relationship is to social media and what has changed. What are their lives like?
Things have changed drastically in the world since Sex and the City last aired. Parker is longing to find out where Carrie, who doesn’t have family beyond her friendships, is doing professionally. She wants to know the results of the political changes in Carrie’s work. Is she still writing a column or has she written any more books? The questions didn’t stop there, as Parker also wants to know if Carrie has a podcast and what fashion means to her now. She wonders how their friendships have changed, or not changed, and whether her social circle has grown.
Sex and the City revival
And Just Like That will run as a ten-episode, half-hour series from executive producer Michael Patrick King. The revival series is being written by an all-female writers’ room. According to Parker, the writers’ room is “incredibly diverse in a really exciting way.” The actress finds it hard to hold back her excitement over the project, adding that she is just excited to be handed the script.
With production only set to start in the spring in New York City, it will be a while before fans get the chance to see their favorite characters. No doubt, like Parker, they are wondering how the world has affected them and whether their characters will be the same.
