Sex and the City returns for a 10-episode season and with a new name: And Just Like That
Do you remember the times that Carrie Bradshaw says, “I couldn’t help but wonder”? As you know, Carrie loves to wonder and therefore there were so many times that she wonders. As I wrote these words, I couldn’t help but wonder – just like Carrie- about new episodes of And Just Like That…
Carrie Bradshaw, one of the popular newspaper columnists of NY, who loves to wonder about many things, returns to the streets of Manhattan by wearing her favorite heels and takes her best two friends, Miranda and Charlotte, with her. Are the Cosmopolitans ready for a short trip to the world of Sex and the City?
“Maybe our girlfriends are our soulmates and guys are just people to have fun with.”
The series premiered in 1998 and concluded in 2004. Later on, it spawned two features’ films, Sex and the City (2008) and Sex and the City 2 (2010). The series examines male-female relations, cosmopolitans city life through friendship of four successful and career women live in Manhattan. With 54 Emmy nominations and 7 Emmy Awards, the series has become one of the cult productions that sheds light on modern women’s life and sometimes even gives clues for real life.
Let us remember this group of four women: Carrie is a newspaper columnist that writing about relationships and sex; Samantha is most sexually confident of group and a businesswoman; the lawyer Miranda is cynical views on relationships and men; Charlotte works in an art gallery and most romantic woman of group. The love life of these four women is quite complex, just like the city and just like the life… In the new episodes, we will watch them in 50s. I am looking forward to what Carrie will write about all those issues as a mature woman.
“Hello It’s Me”
The series is back with a new name: And Just Like That. Furthermore, Jessica Parker has shared the name of the first episode of the new season in her Instagram account: “Hello It’s Me”. And Just Like That will be a 10-episode revival on HBO Max. Filming has started without Samantha Jones (Kim Cattrall) in the spring. It was not surprise for fans of series because Kim Cattrall has said in various statement that she is not very willing to be part of revival. According to the information about the new season of the series, it seems that a new member will not be added to the famous friend group to fill Samantha’s place, but we think that the screenwriters will not deprive the streets of Manhattan from a flirtatious female character.
In the story of the new season, the relationship between men and women and life will be examined through the friendship of three women in their 50s. As a young colleagues of Carrie, I wondered: How Carrie wrote during the pandemic? Of course, the pandemic will be a part of story.
As the story takes place in New York and in a women group, of course, the fashion is included. The series, which continued for 6 seasons, also became a fashion icon with clothes of each character. However, in the new season, the previous costume designer of the series, Patricia Field, will not be able to dress the women of And Just Like That due to the shooting of Emily in Paris, another Netflix series.
One of the new names is Sara Ramírez, from Gray’s Anatomy. Ramírez will play a podcaster, Che Diaz, who hosts Carrie in her broadcast. David Eigenberg and Steve Brady, who play the husbands of Miranda and Charlotte, will be part of the new season. Mario Cantone and Willie Garson are among the former stars that included in the new season.
Although there is no air release date for the series, the photos that Sarah Jessica Parker shared from the set can be a kind of preview while waiting for And Just Like That…
