Sex And The City: Revived As A Series At HBO Max Without Samantha? Details Inside

A  new installment in the Sex and the City is being awaited for a really long time now. It seems like now is the time that we’re finally getting another awesome piece in the franchise. In this article, we will answer all the whats, hows, whens, and wheres related to the upcoming project. But, please be ready to take it with a pinch of salt, you’ll know why.

Sex and the City New Series

Reportedly, the superhit franchise is being carried forward in the form of a series and HBO Max has almost sealed the deal to revive it. This evergreen comedy franchise is being revived as a limited series. This will be a third installment in the movie series and 7th piece in the whole franchise including the two movies and HBO TV series.

As of now, there are no dates announced about the upcoming series as the revival deal has just been cracked or maybe about to happen soon. So, we’ll have to wait a little more for the release date and more details.

Sex and the City original series ran for a total of six seasons on HBO, which followed 2 movies in the franchise that received equal, or rather even more response. The franchise has established an iconic image for itself and the cast’s popularity is equally huge.

The Sad Part About It

As per reports from trusted sources, it is being said that the lead actresses of Sex and the City, Saraj Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon, and Kristin Davis are all set to reappear in their roles as Carrie, Miranda, and Charlotte, respectively.

No, we didn’t forget the fourth queen of the franchise, but looks like HBO Max did! So basically, Kim Cattrall is going to reprise her role as Samantha is the upcoming revival of Sex and the City. This was first confirmed by The New York Post.

This won’t be a big shock for the people who’ve been following Sex and the City and the star cast for a while now. Cattrall has spoken multiple times about saying goodbye to the character and the franchise.

In a past interview with Piers Morgan, reportedly in 2017, Kim Cattrall requested the creative team of Sex and the City to consider recasting Samatha’s role and choose a non-white actress for the same. She said,

 “It’s a great part, I played it past the finish line and then some, and I loved it. And another actress should play it. Maybe they could make it an African-American Samantha Jones, or a Hispanic Samantha Jones.”

 

The franchise has die-hard fans who still get as excited watching the series as they did for the first time. The fans not just love the story and the setting, but the cast is as important as the rest of the elements of the franchise. The chemistry and fun element among the four lead actresses has been a treat to watch always.

So, it’s going to feel incomplete without our very own Samantha. But, we also trust the creative team and hope that they choose someone who can do justice to the amazing role!
