And Just Like That, the new trailer for the eagerly-awaited Sex and the City revival has dropped.

“If you have good friends in your corner, anything is possible. After all the years, and all the changes, a new chapter of Sex and the City begins,” the description of the new trailer reads.

It builds on the previously released teaser and shows Carrie and the gang – sadly minus Samantha – living in New York City 11 years in the future after the events of the second SATC movie. The revival will follow the trio as they attempt to navigate love, life and friendship in The Big Apple in their 50s.

Sarah Jessica Parker (Carrie) is back, as is Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon as Charlotte and Miranda respectively. Other old favourites return, including Chris Noth (Big), Mario Cantone (Anthony), and the late Willie Garson (Stanford). And in the interest of keeping things fresh, there’s plenty of new cast members, including Sarita Choudhury and Sara Ramírez.

Sex and the City was originally created by Darren Starr and became a huge hit for HBO between 1998 and 2004. There were to subsequent feature films in 2008 and 2010. The series is based off Candace Bushnell’s 1997 book of the same name.

The series was overseen for years by Michael Patrick King, who’s helming And Just Like That…. HBO Max also confirmed that he’s written and directed the opening two episodes of the new revival.

Catch And Just Like That… on HBO Max from Thursday, December 9th. That night will see the debut of the first two episodes, with one episode then rolled out weekly each Thursday until February 3rd.

This revival could honestly go either way in terms of quality. Whatever happens, though, it’ll never be as unnecessary as a gritty dramatic reboot of a beloved 90s sitcom.
