And Just Like That… the new chapter of the ground-breaking series Sex and the City, follows “Carrie” (Sarah Jessica Parker), “Miranda” (Cynthia Nixon) and “Charlotte” (Kristin Davis) 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.

Sex and the City was created by Darren Star and based on the book Sex and the City by Candace Bushnell.
Sex and the City was a huge hit and yet so much has happened the in the almost-20 years since it graced our screens (if finished its run after 94 episodes in Feb 2004.)
It won several accolades including seven of its 54 Emmy Award nominations, eight of its 24 Golden Globe Award nominations, and three of its 11 Screen Actors Guild Award nominations. It was listed as one of the best television series of all time by Time in 2007 and TV Guide in 2013.
It also spawned two feature films, Sex and the City (2008) and Sex and the City 2 (2010). Many of us feel like we grew up with the characters from the series and it’s going to interesting to see how the characters deal with everything that’s happened since – i.e. the Me Too movement, online dating, social media and yes – COVID!
