Reflecting on the Legacy: A Toast to the Creators

Awaiting the Next Chapter: Challenges and Enthusiasm
While fans eagerly anticipate the forthcoming season, it’s worth noting that the production of season three will face a slight delay.

A Promise of Fresh Stories: An Invigorated Universe
Despite the challenges, Michael Patrick King remains enthusiastic about the future of the show. “We are thrilled to spend more time in the Sex and the City universe telling new stories about the lives of these relatable and aspirational characters played by these amazing actors,” said King, exuding his excitement for the journey ahead. He playfully hints, “And Just Like That … here comes season three.”

Notable additions include Sara Ramírez, Sarita Choudhury, Nicole Ari Parker, Karen Pittman, Mario Cantone, David Eigenberg, Evan Handler, Christopher Jackson, Niall Cunningham, Cathy Ang, Alexa Swinton, and John Corbett. The series is executive produced by King himself, alongside John Melfi, Parker, Davis, Nixon, Julie Rottenberg, and Elisa Zuritsky. It’s also a continuation of Darren Star’s vision, originating from Candace Bushnell’s book.
