Just as Carrie, Samantha, Miranda and Charlotte had their adventures, the cast of Sex and the City have been on what seems like a roller coaster since the show began in 1999.
After running for six seasons, the HBO series wrapped in 2004. The costars went on to reprise their roles four years later: Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall, Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon starred in two Sex and the City films, one in 2008 and a second in 2010. However, the drama has never stayed on the screen.
In January 2020, the cast announced that a revival series is coming to HBO Max, titled And Just Like That. It will follow Parker, Davis and Nixon’s characters through their 50s. Cattrall will not be part of the series.
“I couldn’t help but wonder… where are they now?” Parker wrote via Instagram at the time alongside a snippet of footage. The clip featured a few New York City sights and the words, “And just like that … the story continues,” being typed across a computer screen.
The Hocus Pocus actress also addressed whether they were replacing Cattrall’s character in the new show, telling TMZ in January 2021, “We’re not looking to bring in a fourth character. We have New York City as a fourth character.”
The Just Just Want to Have Fun star also claimed that she does not “dislike” her former costar, via an Instagram post that same month. “I’ve never said that. Never would,” Parker added.
Cattrall, for her part, hasn’t publicly commented on the new SATC series, but some of her other castmates have seemingly hinted that the feud between her and the rest of the women is still ongoing.
“I do know that I’m very close with SJ and [Cattrall’s] descriptions of her don’t even come close,” Chris Noth, who plays Mr. Big in the franchise, told The Guardian in December 2021, noting he had “no idea” what Cattrall’s thinking is at this point. “I liked [Cattrall], I thought she was marvelous in the show and some people move on for their own reasons.”
He continued: “I don’t know what hers were. I just wish that whole thing had never happened because it was sad and uncomfortable.”
