The Sex And The City girls – minus a key player – and their Manolo Blahniks may be strutting back into our lives.
According to reports, HBO Max is eyeing up a limited series revival for the iconic show.
A ‘well-placed industry insider’ told Page Six that Sex And The City will head to HBO’s streamer for a limited series reboot with ‘all the original stars’ involved – bar Kim Cattrall, who has made it clear that she will not revisit sex kitten Samantha Jones.
The report claims that Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis will reprise their signature roles of Carrie Bradshaw, Miranda Hobbes and Charlotte York for a revival that will continue on the franchise.
Sex And The City ran for six seasons between 1998 and 2004, following the lives of four fashion-loving, romance-challenged women in New York City.
A film, following the wedding of Carrie and Big (Chris Noth) came in 2008, followed by a critically panned sequel in 2010.

A third movie was supposed to follow, but in 2017, the project was axed just weeks before it started filming.
The finger of blame was pointed at Kim, whose demands were allegedly too high, and it was later claimed that the actress refused to do a storyline which saw Miranda’s now-teenage son Brady sending ‘d*** pics’ to Samantha.
The sequel was also set to kill off Big with a heart attack in the shower, and was believed to be more focused on Carrie’s grief than the relationship between the four well-dressed besties.
The cancellation of Sex And The City 3 led to tensions between Kim and SJP spilling over into the public, with both women taking swipes at each other on social media and in interviews.
Sarah, 55, has since claimed there is no catfight in the cast, and that she couldn’t ‘imagine doing another movie without her’.

However, Kim stands by her decision to leave sexually free PR agent Samantha in the past.
Speaking on the Women’s Prize For Fiction podcast this week, the 64-year-old said: ‘I remember getting a lot of grief on social media for not wanting to do a film. And that was astonishing.
‘Some of the things that people wrote to me, like, you know, “I work in a bank, and I don’t like this person, and I don’t like the hours, I don’t like this, and I do it. So you just do it!”
‘Oh, my God, so much misery, you know. “Give me what I want. I do it. I’m miserable!”
I am lucky enough to have a choice… And it’s, it’s something that I feel very lucky to have. And I’m very protective of it. But I wouldn’t be any good doing something that I really didn’t want to do.
‘And I have a great appetite for telling stories that I haven’t heard before. And because it helps me in some ways, it just helps me work things out.’
In the past, Kim has suggested that a Black or Hispanic actress could take on the iconic role, or that Samantha could even be killed off were a new reboot to go ahead.
Over its six season run, Sex And The City won seven Emmys and eight Golden Globes, and has appeared on many best TV show lists, including that of TIME and Entertainment Weekly.
