Nicole Ari Parker, Karen Pittman, and Sarita Choudhury are joining the cast of HBO Max’s Sex and the City revival And Just Like That…
The aforementioned will join original franchise leads Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon, and Kristin Davis. They will reprise their original characters, Carrie Bradshaw, Miranda Hobbs, and Charlotte York. The only original lead who is not a part of the revival is Kim Cattrall. She played Samantha Jones in the series and two follow-up movies.
The new series returns to follow Carrie, Miranda, and Charlotte as they navigate the journey from the complicated reality of life and friendship in their 30s to the even more complicated reality of life and friendship in their 50s.
Parker, Pittman, and Choudhury’s characters are three powerful New York women. However it is unclear how they are connected to Carrie and the gang.
Parker will play Lisa Todd Wexley, a Park Avenue mother of three and documentarian. Pittman will play Dr. Nya Wallace, a brilliant, challenging Columbia Law professor. Choudhury will play Seema Patel, a single, self-made powerhouse Manhattan real estate broker.
Also joining the Sex and the City cast as a newcomer is Sara Ramírez. Ramirez will play Che Diaz, a non-binary, queer, stand-up comedian that hosts a podcast on which Carrie is regularly featured.
Chris Noth, Mario Cantone, David Eigenberg, Willie Garson, and Evan Handler will reprise their roles from the original series and movie franchise.
Michael Patrick King, who was SATC showrunner for several years. He also wrote and directed both feature films spinoffs will also executive produces And Just Like That.
“Everyone at And Just Like That… is thrilled to have these amazing and vibrant actors join the Sex and the City family,” King said in a statement. “Each of them will add their unique spark and big heart to these new characters and the stories we are about to tell.”
Sarah Jessica Parker, Nixon, Davis, Julie Rottenberg, Elisa Zuritsky and John Melfi will also executive produce the Sex and the City revival.
The 10-episode series began production in the Big Apple last week.
