Sarah Jessica Parker has tested Sex and the City fans’ knowledge by sharing a piece of history from the show.
Parker, who played Carrie Bradshaw throughout the six seasons and two films, uploaded a picture to her Instagram account showing a damaged Manolo Blahnik shoe, simply captured “unearthed”.
Fans will recognise it as a piece of history from an episode in season four, in which Carrie’s shoe is eaten by her boyfriend Aiden Shaw’s puppy, Pete. Parker also tagged the new Sex and the City reboot in the caption, suggesting that the battered footwear might feature in the show's plot.
HBO Max has confirmed a 10-episode series, titled And Just Like That, which will follow three of the four main characters from the original show - Carrie, Miranda and Charlotte, played by Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis - as they "navigate the reality of life and friendship in their 50s".
Kim Cattrall will not be returning as Samantha and her absence will form part of the storyline, highlighting how friendships can evolve over the years.
John Corbett - who plays Carrie's carpenter ex-boyfriend Aidan Shaw - confirmed that he will return for "quite a few episodes".
“I’m going to do the show,” he told Page Six, calling the reprisal of his role “very exciting”.
The upcoming series will also have a more diverse cast than the original show, with producers ensuring it is "better connected" to the real world. Both the TV series and the follow-up films were heavily criticised for being predominantly white, and the second movie was deemed particularly offensive to Muslims.
