For those of you ladies who matured in the late ’90s and early 2000s, Sex and the City was a guilty pleasure that many(I think) indulged in. The show which inspired numerous shows like; “Grey’s Anatomy”, “Gossip Girl”, “Girls”, “Insecure” and the “The Bold Type” just to name a few is set to make a return.
Yes, you read that right! The show will begin shooting in the spring(when is that in Kenyan time?) and will lack one of its initial cast members, Kim Cattrall who played Samantha.
The show will be revived on HBO Max and will the stars like Sarah Jessica Parker, Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon, all reportedly make more than $1 million (Shs 109 million) per episode, according to a Variety report published on Monday.
All three women, along with franchise co-creator Michael Patrick King, will also serve as executive producers on the project, which will reunite (most of) the cast for a 10-episode revival series titled.
This revival will see the trio “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,” according to the press release.
Rumours doing the rounds are that the “Sex and the City” cast clashed over their competing salaries ever since Parker became a producer in the show’s second season, subsequently beefing up her paycheck.
It is suspected that money is at least an element of the much-discussed feud between Parker and Cattrall, who has said for years that she’s not interested in reprising her role.
Cattrall who has in the past pitched actors including Oprah Winfrey, Tiffany Haddish and Sofía Vergara to replace her in the series, has yet to acknowledge the revival except for liking a tweet supporting her decision not to return.
