Michael Patrick King, creator and executive producer of the beloved franchise, said in a statement: “Everyone at And Just Like That is beyond thrilled that a dynamically talented actor such as Sara Ramírez has joined the Sex and the City family.
“Sara is a one-of-a-kind talent, equally at home with comedy and drama – and we feel excited and inspired to create this new character for the show.”
Unfortunately, Kim Cattrall and the fan favourite character, Samantha Jones, will be absent from the series.
And Just Like That…is currently in production and filming in New York City. A premiere date for the reboot is unknown.
Sex and the City originally ran from 1998-2004, and received universal acclaim from critics, who often rank the show as one of the greatest comedy-dramas of all time.
It spawned two feature films, Sex and the City (2008) and Sex and the City 2 (2010) – both of which were massive successes at the box office – and a prequel series, The Carrie Diaries (2013-2014).
