Chatting to the magazine about the upcoming ten-episode revival series Sarah, 55, confirmed that the show will address the coronavirus pandemic and the effect it has had on both Carrie and New York City as a whole.
"[Covid-19] will obviously be part of the story, because this is the city where [these characters] live", said Parker, citing NY, where the narrative takes place. "How have the friendships changed or not changed, and has her social circle grown?" "I have great faith that the writers are going to examine it all", she told the outlet.
While all three women are reprising their roles, Kim Cattral is the only person who will not be back to play Samantha Jones. Big (played by Chris Noth) were happily married, despite Carrie's run-in with ex-fiancé Aiden Shaw, Charlotte and husband Harry Goldenblatt have two children, Miranda and Steve had coped with his extramarital affair and Samantha, having broken up with actor Smith Jerrod, was single and swinging. The confident and headstrong public relations powerhouse won't be joining Carrie, Miranda and Charlotte when the newly announced series revival And Just Like That... premieres on HBO Max in 2022.
It is being written with the assistance of an all-female writers' room, which Parker said is "incredibly diverse in a really exciting way". You know, who are they in this world now? When the 9/11 terror attacks rocked NY, the show never directly addressed it, but the twin towers were removed from the opening credits, and Carrie gave a wistful voiceover in which she said "seasons change, so do cities". Have they adapted? What part have they played? Did they move with momentum? "What has changed?" she mused more. Is she still writing a column? "I'm so curious and excited to see how the writers imagine these women today", she said. What does fashion mean to her now?

She hopes that this new team introduces a different "life experience, political world views, and social world views" in AJLT. I am both terrified and anxious about the entire production-terrified because there is so much they can get wrong that'll continue to weaken the legacy of an iconic show, and anxious because I know the scrutiny is about to be enormous.
"We're not looking to create a fourth character." she explained, "We have New York City as the fourth character".
