Sarah Jessica Parker has taken to her social media pages to reveal that a Sex and the City 3 is finally on the way, with HBO confirming the news with a dramatic teaser clip.
Fellow cast members, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis also took to their Instagram profiles to give fans a first glimpse of the trailer.
Sadly for fans, it appears as though Kim Cattrall who played the role of Samantha Jones will not be taking part in the reunion as she has remained silent during the bombshell announcement.
The exciting news follows months of speculation that the New York City-based show was set to return with fans sitting on the edge of their seats awaiting confirmation.
Alongside the clip which shows a bustling Manhattan, SJP penned: “I couldn’t help but wonder… where are they now? X, SJ,” before she is heard saying: “and just like that”.
An official press release for the new series read: “The new Max Original series is based on the book, Sex and the City, by Candice Bushnell and the original TV series created by Darren Star.
“The series will 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 new chapter will be titled “And just like that” and is said to have ten, thirty-minute episodes when the show goes into production in spring.
Fans couldn’t help but share their joy as they flocked to social media following the news, with one penning: “Omg…..I think my pulse just stopped. Don’t play with me if this isn’t true! !!!! SJP Please let this be true!!!!!!”
A second added: “This is the day I’ve been waiting for.”
“OMFG I’m having a heart attack,” exclaimed a third.
Another commented: “Shut up!!!!!! Omg the heavens have parted if this means what I think!!!”
Liverpool-born actress Kim Cattral, who has spoken publicly of her feud with Sarah Jessica Parker has previously said she was left dumbfounded by the hate she received when she revealed she wouldn’t be taking part.
“I remember getting a lot of grief on social media for not wanting to do a film and that was astonishing,” she said on the Women’s Prize for Fiction podcast in December.
During its original airing between 1998 and 2005, Sex and the City bagged seven Emmy awards and Eight Golden Globes, as well as leading to spin-offs such as The Carrie Diaries and two films.
