In an interview with Vanity Fair, Sarah Jessica Parker revealed that the rebirth of ‘Sex and the City’, titled ‘And Just Like That8230; will address the coronavirus pandemic, in addition to deepening social and political aspects, which will result in much more conscious production than the original series.
“[A pandemia de] COVID-19 will obviously be part of the story because it is the city [que as personagens vivem]. And how will that change the relationships once the friends go? I am sure the authors will explore this question very well.
She adds, “[O revival] it will be incredibly diverse in an exciting way. [Os roteiristas] will bring new life experiences, political views and current social issues. “
It should be remembered that Caitlyn Jenner is cited to participate in the production.
Check out the first teaser:
The rebirth will feature the return of Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis, who will not only star, but also producers of the series.
Kim Cattrall, who played the iconic Samantha, will not be returning.
Cattrall’s absence from the rebirth is no longer a surprise, as the actress herself had previously expressed her contempt for the possibility of a revival of the series, due to disagreements between her and Parker.
In interviews, the actress even admitted that she was persecuted behind the scenes by her colleague, who is said to be envious of the popular reach of her character, Samantha Jones.
Additionally, Cattrall has reported on sticky situations suffered behind the scenes, due to troubled relationship dynamics with the castmate. It would have made the actress lose interest in remaining involved in the franchise.
Michael Patrick King, screenwriter, director and executive producer of “Sex and the City” returns in the same role as producer.
“The series follows Carrie, Miranda and Charlotte as they navigate the complicated journey of life and friendship from their 30s, now to an even more complicated stage in their 50s.”
Rumors suggest that the new episodes will have a more race-conscious and political storyline, in addition to staying a bit more connected with the real world.
Created by Darren Star (now before “Emily in Paris”), the original series spanned six seasons, aired between 1998 and 2004 on HBO.
The plot follows four friends who dealt with single life in New York City in the late 1990s, while one of them recounts his experiences in a journalistic column.
In theaters, “Sex and the City” grossed $ 415 million worldwide, while the sequel reached $ 280 million.
