Sex and the City to return in a three-piece outfit

It’s official: Sex and the City is joining Mannequin Two: On the Move in staging a sequel that unwisely sheds Kim Cattrall.

HBO Max has given a ten-episode order to And Just Like That…, a follow-up series that will be the Golden Palace to Sex and the City‘s Golden Girls. It’s said “the revival will follow Carrie Bradshaw, Charlotte York, and Miranda Hobbes as they navigate love and friendship in their 50s,” as it necessarily must. While Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon, and Kristin Davis are attached to reprise their respective roles, Cattrall, who has joined the general public in agreeing that “after the second movie [she’d] had enough,” is not returning. It’s a huge loss for the show’s horny factor.

And Just Like That… joins the likes of Roseanne, Will & Grace, Full House, Girl Meets World, Mad About You, Murphy Brown, Punky Brewster, Frasier, The Facts of Life, Designing Women, Saved by the Bell, Head of the Class, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Doogie Howser, and Night Court unironically dredging up the sitcoms of the ’80s and ’90s. At this same relative point in history, we were making The Brady Bunch Movie and Starsky & Hutch in mockery of bygone TV; can we at least go back to that?
