Earlier this year it was confirmed that groundbreaking series, Sex and the City, would be getting a 'revisit' in the form of a new HBO season, And Just Like That. However, while three of the four of the original SATC cast signed on – Sarah Jessica Parker will reprise her role as writer Carrie Bradshaw, Kristen Davis will return as mother-of-two, Charlotte York Goldenblatt, and Cynthia Nixon will be saying hello to lawyer Miranda Hobbes once more – sadly Kim Cattrall declined the project, so there'll be a distinct lack of Samantha Jones.
But! Plenty of other notable characters will be joining the trio, with Carrie's husband Mr Big (Chris Noth), her former fiancé Aiden Shaw (John Corbett) and Miranda's husband Steve Brady (David Eigenberg) already confirmed... we can now happily rejoice in the news that three more familiar faces will also be part of the fun.
First up: Carrie's other BFF Stanford Blatch (played by the legendary Willie Garson) will be back to support his gal through the ups and downs of life, along with his on-screen husband Anthony Marantino (Mario Cantone)!
Rather excitingly, Charlotte's husband Harry (Evan Handler) has now also been given the green light too! The couple were always a big hit with audiences, so we can't wait to see what they've been up to.
In a statement about the news, the show's executive producer Michael Patrick King said: "Everyone at And Just Like That… is thrilled to be able to continue the storylines of these beloved Sex and the City characters with the actors who made them so lovable."
It was also announced that Grey's Anatomy star Sara Ramírez has been cast in a regular role as podcaster Che Diaz, who is a big Carrie Bradshaw fan and frequently has her appear as a guest on the podcast.
Rumours also began to swirl last month that British rom-com hero Hugh Grant was being pursued for a role in And Just Like That, with a source telling The Mirror, "Sarah Jessica has it in her head that she needs a big - and I mean big - male star in the SATC reunion ensemble... To help smooth over the absence of Kim [Cattrall].
At the top of SJP and HBO Max's wish list to join the series is Hugh Grant, who loves the show and had a great time working with Sarah Jessica in the past, and with HBO just last year on his massive hit The Undoing. And the money's there to bring in Hugh and pay him his full freight."
So, when can we expect the reboot to hit screens? According to Variety the show started filming in spring 2021, meaning that we probably won't see anything until early 2022. Plenty of time to get a viewing party organised then?
