Early this year, Sarah Jessica Parker announced a planned revival to the show Sex and the City-an extremely popular television show that aired from 1998 to 2004 for almost 100 episodes-which threw fans into an excited frenzy. Back when the show was running it featured four best friends and their lives in New York City, with some television drama and scripting of course, and led to nominations for many Emmy and Golden Globe awards. It also led to the creation of two different movies in the years to follow the series’ end which earned millions in the box office despite having some pretty harsh critique from the public.
Fans devoured the Sex and the City show as well as its following movies Sex and the City and Sex and the City 2, so much so that a third movie was also planned but one of the actresses decided to step back from the ongoing scene of this plot and the plans were ultimately canceled leaving the storyline to drop off.
As the hype and excitement for the new part of the show began, plenty of controversy and drama appeared from critics and fans that paid special attention to the ongoing issues since the ending of the original story when Kim Cattrall who played Samantha Jones left the franchise. She went on to have major roles in many other projects, but Kim also wasn’t scared to speak up some about the experience she had during filming of this show and the movies.
The other stars that spoke up about being excited faced some quick drama regarding not including the role of Samantha Jones or the actress that played her, but shut it down by stating that nobody hates Kim or her role in any way and she will be greatly missed but always loved as part of the story.
However, it has been made clear by Cattrall that the actress will never be rejoining this franchise as she stated in multiple interviews it was a learning curve for her to figure out that shows like these are important to work with positive environments or coworkers.
Despite the rift that opened up following the true end to Sex and the City after its second movie debuted, the actresses that are returning have been super vocal in their excitement to be back in New York City to film as well as being back to these well-loved roles again.
It certainly has sparked excitement in those that loved the original movies and show in any way as well as in the actresses. More specific details regarding how long this show may run, what the plot will do about a missing character, and so on has yet to be developed publicly. Overall, it’s definitely a long awaited revival that plenty of people are incredibly joyful about and the new show should be met with a lot of viewers both new and old.
