The long wait is finally over for die-hard "Sex and the City" fans who have been eagerly anticipating the revival series, "And Just Like That..." after 17 years. And there's more good news as the show will feature a queer character, bringing even more diversity to its already iconic cast.
“Sex and the City” is based on Candace Bushnell’s book of the same name. The show followed four single women in their thirties who live in New York City - Carrie Bradshaw, Charlotte York, Miranda Hobbes, and Samantha Jones - from 1998 to 2004 and got a lot of success.
Almost all the original cast are back in “And Just Like That...”, the “Sex and the City” revival series, except for Kim Cattrall in her role as Samantha Jones.
Sarah Jessica Parker, Kristin Davis, and Cynthia Nixon reprise their roles as Carrie, Charlotte, and Miranda respectively in a new chapter following the three heroines who are now navigating life in their 50s.
You will find some familiar faces that you followed in the original series, like Natasha Naginsky, ex-wife of Carrie’s husband.
The show will also introduce new characters like Che Diaz, a nonbinary queer person, who is played by Sara Ramírez (Grey’s Anatomy), who recently came out as nonbinary.
Che Diaz is described as “a nonbinary queer stand-up comedian who hosts a podcast on which Carrie Bradshaw is regularly featured.”
“Che is a big presence with a big heart whose outrageous sense of humor and progressive human overview of gender roles has made them and their podcast very popular,” HBO said.
The new 10-episode spinoff series “And Just Like That...” is coming to HBO Max on December 9, 2021, with two episodes. After that, a new episode will be available every Thursday.
