Fans have finally been given their first look at the upcoming Sex and the City reboot, with HBO dropping the first official promotional photo for the 10-episode series titled And Just Like That... Starring Sarah Jessica Parker as Carrie Bradshaw, Cynthia Nixon as Miranda Hobbes and Kristin Davis as Charlotte York, the revival will follow the friends as they navigate life, love and friendship in their 50s.

Not returning for the revival is Kim Catrall as everyone's favourite outspoken, sex-positive publicist, Samantha Jones. How will they explain her absence? Well, here's what HBO Max chief content officer Casey Bloys had to say to TV Line: "Just as in real life, people come into your life, people leave. Friendships fade, and new friendships start. So I think it is all very indicative of the real stages, the actual stages of life…. They’re trying to tell an honest story about being a woman in her 50s in New York. So it should all feel somewhat organic, and the friends that you have when you’re 30, you may not have when you’re 50."

While it won't be the same without her, familiar faces like Chris Noth, Mario Cantone, David Eigenberg, Willie Garson and Evan Handler will be reprising their roles, with former Grey's Anatomy star Sara Ramirez set to play a new pal, Che Diaz, described as "a non-binary, queer stand-up comedian who hosts a podcast on which Carrie Bradshaw is regularly featured." Given the O.G. series was criticised heavily for its lack of diversity, we're very much here for Ramirez's addition - here's hoping they're not the only one.

Sex and the City reboot release date

And Just Like That... is still very much in production, so fans will have to be patient. That said, insiders suggest it may hit screens later this year, so here's hoping. One thing we do know is that when it is finally released, it will be available exclusively on Binge - not a huge surprise given Foxtel's longstanding HBO distribution deal.

Where to watch the original Sex and the City

While you wait for the Sex and the City reboot, you can catch all six seasons of the original series on Binge and Foxtel Now. Binge is by far the cheapest option of the two, with prices starting from $10 per month and a two-week free trial for new users.

As for the movies (if you hate yourself enough to watch them again), you can find both Sex and the City films on Binge and Amazon Prime Video.
