The HBO Max revival collection, which dropped its first two episodes on Thursday, December 9, follows Carrie, Miranda (Cynthia Nixon) and Charlotte (Kristin Davis) as they enterprise by means of life of their 50s as greatest buddies.

Davis, 56, additionally gushed over the characters’ friendships and the brand new ones in And Just Like That.

I mean, it is a dream in every way to be with them and learn about them and act with them. Then to watch them is incredible.”


The new cast isn’t the one change within the revival, showrunner Michael Patrick King lately stated in an interview.

“I always believed that the success of the first series was because there was a villain, and that villain was a society that said that single people are lepers. ‘If they’re not married, they’re outside of what we like,’ and the outsider in me, the one who was never chosen, the one who was like, ‘I don’t fit society,’ linked in to the idea of defending the rights of people to not be married but also to show that that is beautiful, comic and a choice. So, that was their 30s. Now? The villain is again society,” he defined to The Hollywood Reporter. “‘You’re over 50. It doesn’t matter if you’re married, it’s over. Women of a certain age should act a certain way, and they should be felt sorry for.’”

The author famous that in Sex and the City world, not being married meant “not worthy,” whereas now that comes together with being 55.

“So, to me, there’s still something to fight in a comic, honest, completely surprising way,” he added. “Plus, the city’s different, the world’s different and the conversations are different.”
