Ever since news of the Sex And The City revival was announced last year, fans have been avidly awaiting for more news of the series. And luckily, And Just Like That finally started filming on the streets of New York last month, providing a myriad of exciting photos of the cast on set — including a glimpse of who the new Samantha might be...

The 10-episode HBO Max series will follow three of the four original main characters — Carrie Bradshaw, Miranda Hobbs and Charlotte York, played by Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis, but sadly the character of Samantha Jones will not be returning due to actress Kim Cattrall's absence from the new series.

And Just Like That will follow the three women as they 'navigate the reality of life and friendship in their 50s' — weaving Samantha's noticeable absence into the storyline and adding an exciting new member into the foursome, in the form of Nicole Ari Parker (as an Instagram post by Sarah Jessica Parker hinted).

The And Just Like That crew will also be joined by a whole host of familiar faces that are sure to get fans incredibly excited, with several cast members being spotted in the recent on-set pics filming in New York.

The original Sex And The City series began filming in 1998 and ended in 2004, based on Candace Bushnell's column of the same name and created by Darren Star. It soon became a cult hit with fans, often described as a love letter to New York and applauded for its fresh and frank portrayal of women in their 30s, navigating relationships, careers. incredible fashion and most importantly... sex.

Here's everything you need to know about And Just Like That, including the brilliant ensemble cast who'll be joining Carrie, Charlotte and Miranda...

And Just Like That: The trailer

A very short teaser trailer for And Just Like That has landed, and we couldn't be more excited.

HBO shared the clip on the show's official Instagram account, leaving it without a caption or any sound, which just adds to the suspense.

In it, we see Carrie, Miranda and Charlotte looking as fabulous as you'd expect as they prepare to greet an unknown character. It then cuts to a cute scene between SJP's Carrie and Chris Noth's Mr Big eating takeaway together in their kitchen, looking super loved-up.

We can't wait to see more when the first official trailer drops!

Kim Cattrall — who played PR guru and sexpert Samantha Jones in the original series and two subsequent 2008 and 2010 films, Sex And The City: The Movie and Sex And The City 2 — declined to join the rest of the cast for the reboot, and therefore won't be appearing.

However, Nicole Ari Parker (best known for her roles in Empire and Chicago P.D) has been spotted filming on the streets of New York alongside other cast members — as well as cuddling up to the three leading ladies in SJP's recent Instagram post — resulting in much speculation being made around the possibility that she could in fact, be the new Samantha.

We now know of course, that the character of Samantha won't be replaced, and that Ari Parker will be playing Lisa Todd Wexley; a Park Avenue mother of three and documentarian, according to HBO Max. But, with Samantha firmly out of the picture, that does leave room for a new cast member to join the foursome — and we think the glamorous Park Avenue powerhouse makes the perfect addition!

Much to fans glee, Sarah Jessica Parker and Chris Noth were recently spotted reuniting on set — reprising their roles of Carrie Bradshaw and Mr. Big to continue their long-standing complicated on-screen relationship.

Fans of Carrie's BFF Stanford Blatch (played by Willie Garson) will be thrilled to know he is confirmed to appear in the reboot, along with his on-screen husband Anthony Marentino (Mario Cantone), with both actors recently spotted on set with SJP.

Despite a rocky bump in the road for Miranda and husband Steve Brady in Sex And The City: The Movie, actor David Eigenberg, who played the bartender-turned-owner in the original series and the movies, was also seen filming scenes with his on-screen wife (far left), and barely appears to have changed at all.

Fans were delighted to see Charlotte ushering her grown-up daughter Lily through a door on-set (middle), played by 25-year-old Cathy Ang, while Carrie's arch-nemesis and Mr Big's ex Natasha (aka Bridget Moynahan) was seen strolling onto set in New York (far right).

Other characters confirmed to be returning are Charlotte's fan-favourite second husband Harry Goldenblatt (played by Evan Handler), Miranda and Steve's now-teenage son Brady (23-year-old Niall Cunningham has been cast) and To All The Boys I've Loved Before star John Corbett, who'll be reprising his role as Carrie's carpenter ex-fiancé Aidan Shaw. Miranda and Steve's beloved maid Magda — who appeared in the original series and both films — will not be appearing however, as actress Lynn Cohen sadly passed away in 2020.

Historically, Sex And The City hasn't been known for its diversity, with many critics calling out the show for its predominantly white casting. Fans hope that And Just Like That will be more reflective of the world today, with the top dogs working on the 10-part series vowing to make the show 'as racially diverse and colourful as New York city itself,' this time around and executive producer Michael Patrick King pledging to add several women of colour to the new cast.

Women like Grey's Anatomy alumni Sara Ramirez, Nicole Ari Parker (aka 'the new Samantha'), Sarita Choudhury and Karen Pittman — who will all be officially joining the reboot.

King recently released an official statement regarding the new characters: 'Everyone at And Just Like That… is thrilled to have these amazing and vibrant actors join the Sex and the City family, each of them will add their unique spark and big heart to these new characters and the stories we are about to tell.'

And Just Like That: The plot

According to HBO Max, the new chapter will follow Carrie, Miranda and Charlotte as they 'navigate the journey from the complicated reality of life and friendship in their 30s to the even more complicated reality of life and friendship in their 50s.'

Not much more has been revealed, aside from star Sarah Jessica Parker posting a teaser trailer on Instagram back in January 2020, captioned: 'I couldn’t help but wonder... where are they now?' The video featured a montage of footage of New York City, plus a computer screen with the phrases, 'And just like that…' and 'The story continues…' all narrated by Bradshaw, of course.

With so little info to go on, fans have had to make do with imagining how the remake will portray the women as they are today, twenty years on from the original series — from the state of their relationships to their grown-up kids and how both their careers and their sense of style have evolved over time.

Original costume designer Patricia Field — who thrust designer labels into the spotlight during the six-season show (who could forget Carrie's infamous obsession with Manolo Blahnik shoes?) — will sadly not be returning for the revival series, as she's working on location in Paris for Netflix hit Emily in Paris. She did however, tell WWD that her 'dear friend' Molly Rogers, who worked with Field on the early noughties series, will be in charge of dressing the cast.
