Three quarters of the famous Sex and the City quartet are returning to the small screen in the upcoming TV series And Just Like That…
Sarah Jessica Parker of course returns as lead character Carrie Bradshaw but one of her on screen pals will be glaringly missing from the reboot. While some actors return, the cast will also include an abundance of newcomers to the Sex and the City franchise.
The show is set to air later this year on HBO Max, so in anticipation of the show’s launch, let’s take a look at everything we know about the And Just Like That… so far.
Which Sex and the City stars return in And Just Like That…
Sex and the City originals Sarah Jessica Parker, Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon will reprise their roles as Carrie Bradshaw, Charlotte York Goldenblatt and Miranda Hobbes, respectively — but it looks definite that fan-favorite Kim Cattrall won’t be returning as Samantha Jones.

Other characters from the original, Harry Goldenblatt (Evan Handler), Anthony Marentino (Mario Cantone), Steve Brady (David Eigenberg) and Stanford Blatch (Willie Garson) have also been confirmed to return by HBO.
