This week, HBO Max will air the first two seasons long awaited episode Sex and the city restart, And just like that… It’s been over a decade since we saw the show’s core quartet and it seems like a lot has happened since then, including one of them leaving the two. New York and the show completely.
So how are Carrie Bradshaw and the other two of her friends, Miranda and Charlotte, up to this day? If the program of Trusted trailer, three of them remain in New York, living between their statement backgrounds and experiencing different elements of the modern world, like Pelotons and podcasting. Also, it’s a bit hard to know what’s really going to happen this season thanks to it all confused scenes they appear to have filmed, although there’s a pretty solid chance that at least some of it was staged. What we know – or can draw from the thought wormholes early on in our brains – is what happened. If you need an update on what happened in Sex and the city cinematic universe, I don’t blame you. This is where we are.
Let’s start from where the show ended in 2004. After ditching a creepy Russian performer in Paris during the series finale, Carrie ends up with Big, and though in the latter, he’s initially tried to leave her at the altar, they ended up getting married. (He was pardoned after helping Charlotte get to the hospital when she broke her water.) Charlotte and her husband, Harry, a very sweet and very bald lawyer who once spent an entire episode being mocked. because of her hairy back, adopted a child together and then immediately became pregnant, so they have two daughters now. Miranda and Steve, Brady Hobbes’ child, born in the show’s fourth season, worked through Steve’s loyalty issues and stayed together. (Brady is also Steve’s last name. “Your fare is good” with her serious boyfriend Smith Jerrod. I think that catches us in the romance department!
Ah, Sex and City 2. Who can forget? The last part of SATC the franchise, which debuted in 2010, brought the girls to Abu Dhabi for a show about Eat and pray for love. In the end, more was revealed: Charlotte no longer worried that her husband was cheating with their lesbian babysitter, and Miranda got a job so she could go to the children’s science fair. herself, thereby reducing the guilt of a working mother. Carrie convinces Big to forgive her for kissing a new Aidan during what she considers their marriage to be “twice terrible”. Also, she learned to say “muhammara.” Good times have been all!
Another big thing that is often drowned out by all the questionable antics is that at the beginning of the film, Carrie’s friend Stanford is married to Anthony, Charlotte’s friend. In Charlotte’s (also questionable) words: “Her gay best friend is marrying my gay best friend!!!” Stanford and Anthony were sworn enemies for a long time after Charlotte and Carrie said the old saying “They’re gay – they’ll get along!” and try to set them up. They immediately hate each other, but after a few seasons and one movie, they suddenly fall in love and get married.
It’s still not entirely clear. While the program is very relaxed paparazzi policy on set that gave us a lot of confused looks at what was to come, SATC team is one big fan staged fake scenes to keep fans from understanding the real plot, so chances are they really don’t make any sense. Which says, The franchise seems to be moving in real time, placing women presently in the 50s. Many theories say that Big is dead, although he makes a relatively small appearance in the trailer, suggesting he is still alive. haunting Carrie and her friends. (Although producer Michael Patrick King Confirmed to New York Times that he is alive, I would rather believe the latter until proven otherwise.) At some point, Samantha broke up and she moved to London after her second film revealed Abu Dhabi was too conservative with her swashbuckling lifestyle.
An event that we know happened in SATC The universe: COVID. Earlier this year, Sarah Jessica Parker told Vanity Fair she expected And just like that… writers’ room to explore how the pandemic “changes relationships when friends disappear,” which seems to translate to Big into Peloton during lockdown, and QR codes instead of late-breakfast mimosas.
ONE so many, so much of the former SATC stars are reprising their roles for the new season, including Chris Noth’s Big; Steve; Anthony; Charlotte’s husband, Harry; and Big’s ex-wife, Natasha, who caught him having an affair with Carrie and broke his nose while trying to kick Carrie out of her house. Most importantly, Bitsy von Muffling, a socialite who has confounded Carrie and her friends by marrying Nathan Lane’s character Bobby Fine, who everyone considers gay, is getting married. return. Cheering!
There are also several new cast members, including Sara Ramirez, Sarita Choudhury, Nicole Ari Parker and Karen Pittman.
Sadly, several recurring members have passed away since the last film, including Lynn Cohen, who played Miranda’s housekeeper, Magda, throughout the series and series. Willie Garson, who plays Stanford, will appear in the reboot before his death in September, and it looks like some footage shot before his death was included in the series.
There is no Samantha. After decades of filming, Kim Cattrall seems to have escaped SATC universe for good, unless by some miracle the gods of HBO lured her back. Her absence was explained by the fact that she had just left the group of three girls and moved to London.
A few notable details from the series may not appear, but are worth revisiting just because:
- Charlotte forced an adult male circumcision
- Carrie told the police that a vandal stole her Fendi bread
- Miranda gets horny for a sandwich
- Justin Theroux plays two different characters on this show
If And just like that… manages to include any of these details in its plot, Emmys for everyone!
