You either die as a charming protagonist or live long enough to become … a podcaster. It’s takeaway from the trailer for HBO Max’s Sex and the City follow-up series, And just like that. Carrie Bradshaw’s (Sarah Jessica Parker) voice-over is the same soothing insane tale it has always been, but this time people in the universe are listening to it on a podcast called X, Y and me, co-hosted by Sara Ramirez. We appreciate that executive producer Michael Patrick King is really going alt i about how ladies relate to gender in 2021, even though the results end up being disastrous. Let’s just say Sex and the City 2 did not exactly instill our confidence in this franchise’s ability to handle issues outside of its very elegantly decorated wheelhouse. And while Carrie was podcasting in Brooklyn…, we see Charlotte (Kristin Davis) and Harry at their daughter’s piano concerto; Miranda (Cynthia Nixon) drinks drinks with Karen Pittman; and Big (Chris Noth) enters the Peloton, for of course he is. Also: our boy STEVE !! Steve can be seen at the trailer’s one-minute-14-second mark. He looks amazing. And just like that… premieres Thursday, December 9 on HBO Max. Countdown to Steve town.
