The stars of Sex and the City and And Just Like That discuss the new start.

The debut episodes of HBO Max’s And Just Like That … In the opening scenes, most of the topics that fandom had raved about since the show’s announcement, such as aging, COVID-19, and the disappearance of fan favorite Samantha Jones (Kim Cattrall) who – spoiler alert – has passed on … to London. When Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker) fired her as a publicist, she says in the first episode that Samantha apparently « fired » Carrie as a friend.

That explanation didn’t go over well with viewers, many of whom thought cattralls Refusal to participate in the Sex and the City restart could have been treated more gracefully. The fact that showrunner Michael Patrick King knew he had to explain the Samantha Void to throngs of online fans underscores one of the biggest differences between the last televised iteration of SATC and this one: social media now exists. In fact, Carrie’s casual hobby of posting fashion finds on Instagram seems to be her latest claim to fame this season. But the presence of social media means the reaction to the restart is much more immediate than it was possible in 1998 when the show first premiered.

Speaking to reporters on Friday, Cynthia Nixon told ELLE.com that she has long been aware of some of the criticisms of SATC over the past few decades, particularly its lack of diversity.

 » For me, I speak only for myself, the idea of ​​how white our show was is a huge problem and has always been a huge problem … and I didn’t need a fan or journalist to tell myself this, I’m really aware of it « , she said. “For me, that was the most important thing that we had to address and change about the show in the future.”

Little did Nixon know that a debate was already breaking out on Twitter about whether Miranda Hobbes, in the face of her new professor, Dr. Nya Wallace, played by actress Karen Pittman, was going to be so awkward or not. In one terrifying scene, Miranda keeps putting her foot in her mouth with comments about Dr. Wallace’s race and braids, and the rest of the first two episodes, just pile up on her « white savior » tendencies. Nixon believes, however, that no one should be surprised by Miranda’s missteps.

« Miranda always puts her foot in her mouth! » She insisted. “Get angry and scold. It wasn’t that she opened her mouth, but that she spoke before she thought or had the right words. « 

After so many years in the role, Nixon would understand Miranda’s motivations and character better than anyone .

Kristen Davis also spoke to the press, sharing what it was like to pick up where she left off and play the Charlotte York Goldenblatt again. It was « not difficult at all » to get back into the role, she told Newsweek’s Samuel Spencer. “I love Charlotte. I love her for all her flaws, ”she added.

Davis still thinks one of the most interesting things about Charlotte is how she has changed since we last saw her and how she is asked to change as a mother. The first episodes of AJLT hinted at the disharmony in Charlotte’s Park Avenue apartment and how she keeps her two children Lily (Cathy Ang) and Rose (Alexa Swinton) to certain standards of performance and femininity.

On the Asked by Deadline’s Rosy Cordero about the potential to explore gender in the upcoming season, and the involvement of new non-binary character Che Diaz (played by Sara Ramirez), Davis stated that Rose was on « a journey » and Charlotte was join her.

« We’ve probably talked about it more off-screen than on-screen, » said Davis. « Rose’s journey is going to be a long one, so there won’t necessarily be a clear ending to this season. »

She later told ELLE that when it comes to her children, « It’s great to see Charlotte, which is about not being in control « .
