Days after a series of casting confirmations, production began on the highly anticipated Samantha-free revival of “Sex and the City”.
Sarah Jessica Parker shared a series of images this week on her social media platforms that were taken from the “And Just Like That …” set. The photos were particularly light on details, but nonetheless aroused a lot of excitement among “SATC” enthusiasts.
On Thursday, Parker brought fans back to where it all began: the front door of the New York brownstone where her character, Carrie Bradshaw, lived through six seasons of “Sex and the City” and its two feature films.
“I am thrilled and terrified,” she wrote, with a nod to writer and director Michael Patrick King.
The actor continued the nostalgia party on Friday morning with a series of images showing scripts before the series premiered.
Included were the nameplates of many stars of the beloved HBO franchise, including Kristin Davis, Cynthia Nixon and Chris Noth.
Just days ago, it was announced that actors Mario Cantone, Willie Garson, David Eigenberg and Evan Handler would reprise their roles in the revival, which will air on HBO Max this fall.
And while a number of media outlets have suggested that Noth will not return as Carrie’s main crunch Mr. Big, the actor’s participation was confirmed last month.
Mention of Kim Cattrall, who played Samantha Jones, was conspicuously absent from the footage of Parker. In 2017, Cattrall refused to appear in a third “Sex and the City” film amid a flurry of reporting about a backstage feud with Parker.
Speaking to Piers Morgan after announcing his departure, Cattrall suggested that his role be recast with an actor of color. While Samantha isn’t a part of “And Just Like That …”, the show’s creators seem to have taken Cattrall’s advice somewhat by adding Sara Ramírez as a regular on the show.
The actor, whose credits include “Grey’s Anatomy,” will play Che Diaz, a queer, non-binary comedian and podcast host.
