“I’d sing along to 70’s love songs with this trio deep into any night. @justlikethatmax I’ll see you ladies tomorrow!”

The reboot of SATC will be called Just Like That …, which is set to be executive produced by Sarah Jessica, Kristin, and Cynthia.

The new show was announced back in January 2021, with Sarah Aubrey, head of original content at HBO Max, saying: “I grew up with these characters, and I can’t wait to see how their story has evolved in this new chapter, with the honesty, poignancy, humor and the beloved city that has always defined them.”

What did Kim Cattrall say about the Sex and the City reboot?

Back in 2017, Kim weighed in on whether she would do a SATC reboot, saying: “Not for me. That was part of turning 60.

“That was a very clear moment of how many years do I have left and what do I want to do with it? What haven’t I done? I feel that the show was the best when it was the series and the bonus was the two movies.”

Similarly, in 2019, Kim said she would “never” return to the franchise, adding, “You learn lessons in life and my lesson is to do work with good people and try and make it fun.”

The actress has yet to comment on her replacement in the SATC reboot.
