‘Sex and the City’ reboot to include COVID-19 in storyline

Sarah Jessica Parker, who is reprising her role as Carrie Bradshaw in the ‘Sex and the City’ revival, has divulged details about the series’ plot.

The actress revealed that COVID-19 will definitely “be part of the storyline”, adding that she is eager to see how the writers will explore the impact of the pandemic on the characters’ friendship.

HBO Max confirmed last month that a ‘Sex and the City’ revival is in the works. The reboot, titled ‘And Just Like That…’, will be in the form of a 10-episode limited series.  

Besides Parker, it will also see Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis reprise their roles as Miranda Hobbes and Charlotte York, respectively.

The three of them are also executive producing the reboot, along with Michael Patrick King, who directed both the ‘Sex and the City’ films. Kim Cattrall, who played Samantha Jones on the show and in the films, will not be a part of the web series.

The official description of the reboot reads:

“The series will follow Carrie, Miranda and Charlotte as they navigate the journey from the complicated reality of life and friendship in their 30s to the even more complicated reality of life and friendship in their 50s.”

Apart from ‘Sex and the City’, HBO Max also has reboots of shows like ‘Gossip Girl’ and ‘True Blood’ in the works.
