Carrie, Charlotte, and Miranda are returning to our TV screens again!

Following its initial run on HBO from 1998 to 2004 and two sequel movies, Sex and the City is back with a brand-new show titled And Just Like That…

Set to premiere on HBO Max Dec. 9, the sequel series follows the iconic trio as they navigate love, life, and friendship in their 50s.

If you're a huge fan, you've probably seen the original series so many times you can recite every one of Carrie's narrations word for word.

While there's no shame in rewatching all six seasons over again, there are plenty of other shows available to stream that might be of interest to you.

If you can't get enough of the N.Y.C. drama on SATC, Gossip Girl is right up your alley. Or if your favorite part of SATC is the female friendships, there's a good chance you'll enjoy The Bold Type.
