The buzzy 2000s sitcom Sex and the City is up for a groundbreaking reboot — and the internet just can't stop talking about it.

The show will get a revival treatment at HBO Max with the new chapter titled And Just Like That… starring Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon, and Kristin Davis. The new installment is slated to follow Carrie Bradshaw (Parker), Charlotte York (Davis), and Miranda Hobbes (Nixon) as they navigate love and friendship in their 50s.

Parker, Nixon, and Davis will also executive produce, along with Michael Patrick King. Kim Cattrall, who played Samantha Jones in the original series, however, is not returning — and fans are vocally upset about her absence, so much so that the actress had to take matters into her own hands disable all comments on her Instagram account.

Parker, Davis, and Nixon all shared the long-rumored news on Instagram Sunday with a short teaser. The video cuts between footage of New York City and a computer screen, on which the phrases “And just like that…” and “The story continues…” are typed out to Parker’s signature voiceover. Parker also posted on her personal Instagram; the caption reads: “I couldn’t help but wonder… where are they now?”

Created by Darren Star and based on Candace Bushnell’s 1997 book of the same name, the original series premiered on HBO in 1998 and ran for six seasons until 2004. The show was later made into two films: Sex and the City in 2008 and Sex and the City 2 in 2010. The forthcoming reboot will consist of 10 half-hour episodes and is set to begin production in New York City in late spring.
