Just when 2021 was shaping up to be a scary reflection of the horror year that was 2020, 11 days in we've been graced with some glorious news: Sex And The City is getting a reboot.
Cue the celebratory dancing in our closets.

Like many popular series before it, the cult classic is being revived with a whole new chapter and almost everyone is returning for it.
The new series, named And Just Like That…, will consist of 10 half-hour episodes and will be a continuation of the story of best friends Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker), Charlotte York (Kristin Davis) and Miranda Hobbes (Cynthia Nixon).
Samantha Jones, however, will be noticeably absent, as actress Kim Cattrall is not signing on to the show. An absolute travesty if you ask us.

All three OG ladies shared the news on their Instagram pages in a short teaser showing footage of New York City and a computer screen, on which the phrases "And just like that…" and "The story continues…" are typed out.
"I couldn't help but wonder… where are they now?" Sarah Jessica Parker captioned her post.

According to Variety And Just Like That... will follow the three best friends as "they navigate love and friendship in their 50s".
The production is set to begin in late Spring (so, Australian Autumn) and is being launched by HBO Max, the production company also responsible for the Friends and Gossip Girl reboots, essentially securing their title as our saviours of 2021.
"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," Sarah Aubrey, head of original content at HBO Max, said in a statement.

Kim, who has chosen not to partake in the show's reboot, has reportedly been feuding with co-star SJP since before the original series finished filming.
Speaking exclusively to TV WEEK in 2018, Jason Lewis who is best known for playing Samantha's boyfriend Smith Jerrod touched on the topic.
"I don't pay much attention to any of it," he declares.
"One thing gets said, it gets turned into something much bigger and something it never was. I take media with a grain of salt."
