In a statement, executive producer Michael Patrick King said: "Everyone at And Just Like That… is thrilled to be able to continue the storylines of these beloved Sex and the City characters with the actors who made them so lovable."

Last month, the show confirmed that Chris Noth will reprise his role as Carrie's husband Mr Big.

It was also announced that former Grey's Anatomy star Sara Ramírez has been cast in a recurring role as a podcaster named Che Diaz who frequently has Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker) on their show.

And Just Like That sees Sarah Jessica Parker, Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon all return in their iconic roles as Carrie Bradshaw, Charlotte York and Miranda Hobbes.

However, Kim Cattrall will not be back as Samantha Jones after the actress previously stated she would never return to the show.

In February, HBO Max chief content officer Casey Bloys hinted at how Samantha's absence may be explained in the series, saying: "Just as in real life, people come into your life, people leave. Friendships fade, and new friendships start."
