Sex and the City’s next chapter is coming to HBO Max, with Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis reprising their iconic roles for a brand new 10-episode run.
Since the revival was officially announced, the internet has been abuzz with speculation about what might happen in the new series, and especially what will happen to Samantha.
Kim Cattrall, who played the character in the original series, is the only member of the main cast who won’t be returning, and Parker has now confirmed that Samantha will not be back in any form for the new series.
“Samantha isn’t part of this story. But she will always be part of us. No matter where we are or what we do,” the star said while responding to a fan on Instagram.
The series was officially announced via the social media accounts of the three main stars in January and followed weeks of rumours that a revival was in the works at the streaming service.
The show originally aired between 1998 and 2004, before two feature films in 2008 and 2010 respectively, and won an extremely devoted following in addition to gaining 54 Emmy nominations throughout its run. (Learn more about how to watch Sex and the City.)
The next chapter will follow Carrie Bradshaw (Parker), Charlotte York (Davis) and Miranda Hobbes (Nixon), now in their 50s, and will consist of 10 half-hour episodes.
HBO Max’s Head of Original Content Sarah Aubrey said of the revival, “I grew up with these characters, and I can’t wait to see how their story has evolved in this new chapter, with the honesty, poignancy, humor and the beloved city that has always defined them.”
