Speaking to Vanity Fair Friday, the actor said she is eagerly awaiting scripts from showrunner Michael Patrick King, who is leading a writers room that otherwise entirely comprises women.
“It’s incredibly diverse in a really exciting way,” Parker said of the show’s new writers, who will infuse the series with new “life experience, political world views and social world views.”
Parker said writing the coronavirus into the plot was a no-brainer, given that the series' setting is New York City.
"[COVID-19 will] obviously be part of the storyline, because that’s the city [these characters] live in," she said. I have great faith that the writers are going to examine it all.” "And how has that changed relationships once friends disappear?
Are they like some people who are confused, threatened, nervous [by what’s happening in the world]? “I think that Cynthia, Kristin, and I are all excited about the time that has passed,” said Parker. What part have they played? Have they adapted? Where have they fallen short as women, as friends, and how are they finding their way? “You know, who are they in this world now? I’m so curious and excited to see how the writers imagine these women today.”” /> Did they move with momentum?
Along with King, the revival will be executive produced by Parker, Nixon and Davis. The revival will follow Carrie Bradshaw (Parker), Charlotte York (Kristin Davis) and Miranda Hobbes (Cynthia Nixon) as they navigate love and friendship now in their 50s. Kim Cattrall, who played Samantha Jones in the original series, will not be returning and the show will incorporate the city as its "fourth character," Parker said. The series will consist of 10 half-hour episodes and is set to begin production in New York City in late spring.
Parker added that she is excited to see how the women are tackling mid-life.
While specific plotlines for each "Sex and the City" character in the HBO Max revival are unknown, star Sarah Jessica Parker confirmed the limited series will incorporate the COVID-19 pandemic into show.

The cast also includes Simon Baker, Taylor Kinney, Jacqueline Bisset, Waleed Zuaiter, and Gus Birney.” /> "Blue Night" is directed by Fabien Constant ("Mademoiselle C") and written by Laura Eason ("House of Cards").
