And just like that, Carrie Bradshaw and Mr. Big are back and better than ever!
Sarah Jessica Parker and Chris Noth both gave “Sex and the City” fans a sweet treat on Friday, each sharing a photo of the pair together on their respective Instagram pages.
Parker, 56, posted a behind-the-scenes photo of the duo on Instagram, showing fans an inside look at “And Just Like That….,” the “Sex and the City” sequel series. In the picture, the two faced each other as they smiled at one another while Noth cupped Parker’s face.
“These 2,” Parker captioned the photo. “I bet they stay out late tonight. X, SJ.”
Noth left a cheeky comment on the post, simply sharing a series of emojis, “🥃🥃🥃🥃🥃🥃🥃.”
On his own Instagram, the 66-year-old actor posted a more serious photo of the duo, sharing a snap with Parker’s arm slung over his shoulder as they sat next to one another.
“Together again!” he simply captioned the post.
It was announced at the end of May that Noth would reprise his role for the HBO Max limited series. Fans of the TV couple got their first sneak peek at Mr. Big (real name John James Preston) and Carrie’s return to the screen earlier this month after they were photographed on set together while filming a scene.
Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis will be reprising their roles of Miranda Hobbes and Charlotte York. Even Bridget Moynahan, who portrayed Big’s first wife, Natasha Naginsky in the original series, may be making an appearance in the series after being photographed on set, though no official announcements have been made. Sadly, Kim Cattrall will not be returning as everyone’s favorite fiery PR queen, Samantha Jones.
In addition to the show’s familiar faces, a few new characters will also be introduced in the sequel series. HBO Max announced three new additions to the cast of “And Just Like That…” last month, revealing that Sarita Choudhury, Nicole Ari Parker and Karen Pittman will be starring in the show.
Deadline reported that Choudhury will portray Seema Patel who is described as a “single, self-made powerhouse Manhattan real estate broker,” while Parker will play Lisa Todd Wexley, who is a "Park Avenue mother of three and documentarian.” As for Pittman, she will portray Dr. Nya Wallace, a “brilliant, challenging Columbia Law professor.”
Also joining the cast is former “Grey’s Anatomy” star Sara Ramírez, who will play Che Diaz, a non-binary, queer, stand-up comedian as a series regular. Diaz, who uses they/them pronouns, regularly has Carrie on their podcast. In a press release, the character was described as, “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 Max has not yet released a premiere date for the 10-episode series.
