And Just Like That…: HBO Max Sets Writers For Sex And The City Reboot – Deadline
When the news came out that "Sex and the City" is getting a episode revival on HBO Max without the character of Samantha Jones — apparently because Kim Cattrall has repeatedly made it clear that she will be available to revive her character on the first of never — the universe of potential viewers of a reboot split into two decided camps: the ones who realize Samantha Jones put all the good sex in "SATC" and everybody who still identifies as "a Carrie" and doesn't think they are telling on themselves. For a lot of viewers like me, Samantha's sex-positive banter was the only reason to watch a show set in the whitest possible version of New York City.
