Christmas has come early for Sex and the City fans who will be delighted to hear a reboot of the iconic series is in talks at HBO Max.

After rumours of a potential revisit of the series was reported by Page Six on Wednesday, Deadline today confirmed that the series is ‘on the cards’ at HBO Max as the platform works on deals to get the series underway once more.

Reports suggest the reboot will be a limited series on the streaming platform after fans last got a glimpse at the group of girlfriends in the 2010 feature film sequel.

The returning series is reportedly set to be missing a key figure, however, with Kim Catrall almost certainly not interested in reprising her role as Samantha Jones after recently telling the Women's Prize For Fiction Podcast she wouldn’t consider returning to the role.


“I am lucky enough to have a choice,” she told the podcast, later adding: “I wouldn't be any good doing something that I really didn't want to do.”

Catrall famously severed ties with the series after the second film, with a feud between herself and Sarah Jessica Parker believed to be behind the split.

The series, which first aired in 1998, was created by Darren Star and is based on Candace Bushnell’s 1996 book of the same name.

The original lineup featured Sarah Jessica Parker as Carrie Bradshaw, Cynthia Nixon as Miranda Hobbes, Kristin Davis as Charlotte York and Cattrall as Samantha and ran for six seasons from 1998 through to 2004.

Parker, Nixon and Hobbes are all reportedly interested in revisiting the series.

Sarah Jessica Parker, who is an executive producer of the series, said in September she would like to revisit the show.

“I think to do some episodes of Sex and the City, I wouldn't call it a reboot, I would call it a 'revisit',” she told Entertainment Tonight.

“I'd like to see where all of them are. I'm curious, the world has changed even since the movie. I mean, the world has changed so much, technology and social media.”
