Sex and the City reboot teaser trailer

Sex and the City sequel series, And Just Like That... has been given a premiere date by HBO.

In a new teaser for the show released on Friday (12 November) it is revealed that the follow-up will begin airing on HBO Max on 9 December. The series will also air in the UK on the same day on Sky Comedy and NOW.

And Just Like That... features Sarah Jessica Parker, Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon reprising their roles from the original series.

The series will also feature a number of other returning actors from Sex and the City such as Chris Noth, Evan Handler and the late Willie Garson. Kim Cattrall, however, will not be returning as fan favourite Samantha.

A number of other stars are joining the cast such as Nicole Ari Parker, Karen Pittman and Sara Ramirez.

Nicole has previously commented that And Just Like That... will address the topic of race after the original series was criticised for its lack of diversity.

“I’m excited to be a part of something that’s different for them,” she said. “We can talk about the elephant in the room that there were no fully fleshed-out characters of colour, but now here’s the four of us.”

Sex and the City was also recently criticised by Candace Bushnell, who wrote the book on which the show is based. She said the show was “not very feminist” and that fans “should not base” their lives around the popular series.

And Just Like That... premieres on HBO Max in the US on 9 December and Sky Comedy and NOW in the UK on the same day.
