All three are set to star in the show as well as serve as executive producers. Given the high-profile nature of the project, the salary for the three stars is hardly surprising. A-listers like Nicole Kidman, Jeff Bridges, Sir Patrick Stewart, Reese Witherspoon, and Kerry Washington are among the stars who have recently landed such paydays for their roles in major projects on platforms like Netflix, Hulu, and other streamers. The half-hour series is set to begin production in New York City in late spring. Kim Cattrall, who played Samantha Jones in the original series, is not returning.

I shouldn't have to defend Sex and the City as much as do. Yet SATC often gets singled out, so much so that knocking down the series has become almost trendy over the years. Too many people refuse to acknowledge it as a groundbreaking and influential precursor to countless other shows about the female experience, and it doesn't help that the two movie adaptations destroyed the perfect tableau that the finale ended on 15 years ago. Yes, the Sex and the City series finale was perfect — and it should have been left untouched. SATC works best when you think of it as an urban fairytale, and the conclusion to the sixth season, which aired Feb. It's everything she thinks she wants: to break out of her "I couldn't help but wonder" cycle, to be surrounded by beauty, to be in a committed relationship with someone who just has to be with her.
‘Sex and the City’: The 10 Best Episodes, Ranked
Sex and the City requires little introduction. The six-season series about the professional, romantic, and social lives of four something women in New York featured protagonists who were candid and explicit about their sex lives and put female friendship above marriage. There are certain parts of the show, however, that have not aged well.
When the news came out that "Sex and the City" is getting a episode revival on HBO Max without the character of Samantha Jones — apparently because Kim Cattrall has repeatedly made it clear that she will be available to revive her character on the first of never — the universe of potential viewers of a reboot split into two decided camps: the ones who realize Samantha Jones put all the good sex in "SATC" and everybody who still identifies as "a Carrie" and doesn't think they are telling on themselves. For a lot of viewers like me, Samantha's sex-positive banter was the only reason to watch a show set in the whitest possible version of New York City. Aside from a fundamentally flawed understanding about the financial reality of being the writer of a single newspaper column living in Manhattan — Carrie couldn't have afforded that apartment, never mind all those shoes and clothes; I will die on this hill — the show's writers struggled to balance its theoretically feminist narrative with the increasing imperative to make its protagonist its sole heroine. That's because, for a show about single women over 30, their friendships and their sex lives, Samantha was the one only consistently honest with her partners and herself about her desires and her limits.
