Rumours the video-on-demand arm of HBO, which created the original series, would re-visit the multi award-winning series have been swirling for months.
And it was finally confirmed on Sunday night that Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon, and Kristin Davis, will return for the show. The three original stars of the show, who played Carrie, Miranda and Charlotte respectively, and who will all co-produce the series, shared a teaser on their social media platforms.
The teaser shows scenes from a bustling New York - where the show is set - with Parker giving a short voice over. “And just like that,” she says. “The story continues” is then written on the screen.
The teaser had been watched more than 3 million times by Monday morning.
Celebrity fans including Reese Witherspoon commented on the video, with the actor writing: “YESSSSSSS.”
First airing in 1998, Sex and the City ran for six seasons, winning seven Emmys and eight Golden Globe awards.
The original series followed the lives and loves of four New York women, with Parker playing the lead role of columnist Carrie Bradshaw. The plot of the original series focused on the on and off relationship between Carrie and her main love interest, Mr Big, played by Chris Noth.
The show was based on the book by Candace Bushnell. Producer Darren Star adapted it for the screen.
Two feature films followed the TV series in 2004, both of which were written and directed by Michael Patrick King, who will produce the new series. The movies were commercially successful, but panned by critics.
The storyline of the new series remains a mystery.
A statement from HBO Max’s parent company WarnerMedia said the series would “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.”
The series will consist of ten, half-hour episodes. Filming is set to start in Spring.
