AN Sex and the City reboot is on HBO Max’s plans as a limited series, Deadline confirmed with sources.
It is understood that the WarnerMedia-owned platform is closing deals to bring back the classic fashionista drama set in New York. We are hearing that if these deals happen, it is likely to go on air as a limited event on the HBO Max streaming platform instead of HBO, which aired the original series.
It would be the last HBO series to be restarted after it emerged earlier this month that a True Blood the reboot is scheduled and the premium cable network is also bringing it back In treatment.
Sex and the City, which was created by Darren Star based on the book by Candace Bushnell, starred Sarah Jessica Parker as Carrie Bradshaw, Cynthia Nixon as Miranda Hobbes, Kristin Davis as Charlotte York and Kim Cattrall as Samantha Jones. The New York Post, who broke the news, reports that Parker, Davis and Nixon are interested, but Cattrall – who led this year’s Fox series Very rich – it is unlikely to appear.
The half-hour program spanned six seasons and 94 episodes on HBO between 1998-2004. It was followed by two films in 2008 and 2010. A third film was in the cards, but it never progressed. Prequel Series The diaries of Carrie released on the CW in 2013, with AnnaSophia Robb playing a young Carrie Bradshaw, and it worked for two seasons.
