Take a deep breath. Something huge has happened. HBO Max has confirmed that the Sex and The City reboot is happening. That's right Carrie, Charlotte and Miranda are making an actual comeback, guys. While the third, much-hyped movie never happened, HBO has confirmed that Sex and the City is getting a TV revival, but ~yes~ one major character will be missing.

Sarah Jessica Parker confirmed the news last last night on Instagram, posting a teaser of the upcoming series alongside the caption, "I couldn’t help but wonder... where are they now? X, SJ. @HBOMax @JustLikeThatMax #AndJustLikeThat #SATCNextChapter."

The show will reportedly return as a limited series for streaming service HBO Max, Page Six reports. Original stars Sarah Jessica Parker, Kristin Davis, and Cynthia Nixon will all star, but Kim Cattrall won't be back after the actor made it clear she had moved on from the series, which originally ran from 1998–2004.

Plans for a third film were scrapped when Kim said she didn't want to do it, explaining at the time it was "an empowered decision in my life to end one chapter and start another". There have been rumours for years that she and co-star Sarah Jessica Parker did not get along.

Previously Sarah Jessica Parker spoke to Entertainment Tonight about the possibility of the show returning as a series rather than a third film, but said it would need to be a "revisit" rather than a "reboot".

"I’d like to see where all of them are," she shared. "I'm curious, the world has changed even since the movie. I mean, the world has changed so much, technology and social media.

"They never - which is maybe a virtue too because I would have complicated things even more - so those characters never talked about social media, which I think would be really interesting and just also sexual politics and the #MeToo movement and Time’s Up has really steered conversations about sexual politics, and I think Carrie Bradshaw would just be so greedy to share her feelings and thoughts."

We can't wait.
