The upcoming HBO reboot of hit series Sex & the City officially casts four more stars from the original series, which ran from 1998 to 2004.

Yet despite that film’s failure to maintain the allure created by the TV series and to a lesser extent, its first feature film, hope remained strong that there would be a third film. Ultimately, a third film never materialized, due in part to the rather awkward (and somewhat public) falling out between Parker and Cattrall. But after years of conjecture over a third film, the decision was at last made for SATC to return to television.
