A few weeks ago, Sex and The City fans found Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker), Charlotte (Kristin Davis) and Miranda (Cynthia Nixon) in And Just Like That (available in France on Salto broadcast US + 24), the continuation of the cult series and its two cinematographic sections. Only Kim Cattrall, the interpreter of the sulphurous Samantha, unfortunately refused to take part in this project … but it turns out that she was almost not the only one of the quartet of star actresses to withdraw!
Indeed, Cynthia Nixon explained in an interview with News Corp published by the Herald Sun that she would not agree to slip back into Miranda’s skin unless And Just Like That does not repeat the mistakes of her elder Sex and The City. The actress said: “The more I spoke with Sarah Jessica, Michael Patrick King (the creator and screenwriter) and Kristin about the things that were missing for me to agree to return, which is to say a real change in terms of the lack of diversity for the original series, the more they agreed. I’m proud of the original series even though it’s sometimes deaf about skin color and gender. “
And Just Like That modernizes Sex and The City
Having taken all these aspects into consideration, And Just Like That follows the trio in their daily lives, even though they are now in their fifties. Carrie is still happily married to Big (Chris Noth) but has to step outside of her professional comfort zone to learn how to talk about sex in a successful podcast. But a drama will hit her head on … Charlotte continues to play the model wife and mother with her family. Her eldest daughter, Lily, is a piano prodigy while Rose, the youngest, is already a gentle rebel who doesn’t define herself as a girl. Finally, Miranda left business law and is taking university courses to adapt her skills to serving the most disadvantaged. On the other hand, her relationship with her teacher starts off badly because she keeps messing around … In addition, she seems to feel a strong attraction towards a new association of female Carrie.
