HBO has given a new series commitment to Sex and the City, which fans have been waiting for. The new series will follow Charlotte, Miranda, and Carrie as they navigate the confusing journey out of their 30s into the more complicated, sometimes dangerous reality of dating and marriage in their early 50s. The show, created by behind the television hit Sex and the City and starring Laura Dern, could be an extension of the successful HBO franchise The Sopranos, which followed the lives of five people in the city of New York. If the trailers for the new series are any indication of what to expect, then it looks like a Sex and the City rip-off.
The first episode is supposed to air in the fall. This means we could be in pre-production as early as this summer! What's really interesting about all of this, however, is that HBO did not announce the sex and the city revival during the season, but after the season ended there was a lot of buzz leading up to the announcement. It seems that executive producers David Fincher and Jennifer Lopez had meetings in New York in which they discussed how the characters in the series would evolve.
From all reports, it appears that the main characters of the original series, Carrie, Miranda and Charlotte will remain the same, but the story will be told in a modern day setting. If you've always wanted to see what it's like to get married in New York, then you should definitely look forward to the Sex and the City TV show. As long as there are shows on television, there will always be fan bases waiting for the newest ones. The fact that HBO went ahead with another Sex and the City spin-off gives viewers a little hope that they may see more of these ladies in the future. Who knows, they may team up again with their star players in the future!
