Sex And The City stars Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis return to NYC

Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis looked as if they were having the time of their lives on Friday as they finally returned to their Sex And The City characters.

Sarah, 56, Cynthia, 55, and Kristin, 56, were seen on set in New York City filming an early scene for their upcoming HBO Max revival of their classic series, now titled And Just Like That.

The three actresses showed off a little more gray than they did on the old show, but they proved they could still pull off a stylish ensemble. 

And then there were three: Sarah Jessica Parker, 56, Cynthia Nixon, 55, and Kristin Davis, 56, beamed as they got to work filming a scene in New York City for their Sex And The City revival And Just Like That

Sarah towered in a pair of platform patent leather shoes which she paired with an hypnotizing black-and-white gingham skirt.

The Broadway star lightened up the look with a white blouse, and she stayed warm with a cream-colored cardigan with black spots. 

She grinned ear-to-ear while looking at the crew and accessorized with a brown quilted handbag and a dark red wide-brim hat that hung from her shoulders by a black sash.

Sarah added some sparkle to her tasteful ensemble with strands of pearls and turquoise around her neck.

Her dirty blond locks were parted down the middle and fanned out as the flitted about in the breeze. 

Sarah showed the production was moving quickly on Thursday when she revealed the title of the first episode of the new series and shared some of the essential items she likes to stock her dressing room with.

The actress posted a closeup of her shooting script, which featured the title Hello It’s Me. 

The episode was written by longtime executive producer Michael Patrick King, who also wrote and directed the two Sex And The City films.

The title may have been a reference to classic Todd Rundgren song from 1972, though it’s also the opening line of Adele’s hit song Hello. 

The shooting script included Sarah’s name written in thick gray letters across the cover.

She also gave her $6.8 million Instagram followers a taste of what she would be filling her trailer and dressing room with to occupy herself between takes.

Another photo showed a green backpack and some of her favorite snacks, including packages of long chips and some mixed nuts with raisins.

She also had a small aroma diffuser and tiny bottles of essential oils to create the perfect soothing scent, along with books to occupy her during the long breaks between shots.

There was also a small black Beats speaker to pipe some tunes into the trailer. 

She listed out her ‘items’ and ‘must haves’ for her ‘trailer/dressing room/tote bag haul’ in her caption. 

‘In preparation for 1st day of shooting. Somewhere on the island of Manhattan. Tomorrow. Always bringing enough to share,’ she wrote disjointedly, adding, ‘Not pictured, deodorant.’

The Plaza Suite star also specified what she would be reading in the next few weeks.

‘Book titles (enough to keep me company through episodes 101-103,’ she wrote, then listed that she was digging into Laurie Colwin’s 1978 romantic comedy classic Happy All The Time, the heartbreaking memoir Crying In H Mart by Japanese Breakfast singer Michelle Zauner and Andrew O’Hagan’s recent coming-of-age novel Mayflies. 

Down to three: Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis will return as Miranda and Charlotte, respectively, but Kim Cattrall is sitting the show out after a public falling-out with Sarah; still from Sex And The City

And Just Like That will see Sarah reprising her iconic Sex And The City character Carrie Bradshaw, though the show’s original quartet of women has been reduced to a trio now.

Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon will both be returning as Charlotte York Goldenblatt and Miranda Hobbes, respectively, but Kim Cattrall won’t be returning as Samantha Jones.

The 64-year-old actress previously had a falling out with Parker and chose to sit out this newest incarnation of the show, as well as a canceled third film in the series.

The highly anticipated sequel series will feature most of the original cast minus Cattrall, including the most popular male actor.

DailyMail.com revealed in May that David Eigenberg was returning as Miranda’s husband Steve, as were Chris Noth and  John Corbett, who played Carrie’s competing love interests Mr. Big and Aidan, respectively.

The Hollywood Reporter shared last month that Willie Garson would reprise his role as Carrie’s friend Stanford Blatch and Evan Handler would be back as Charlotte’s husband Harry Goldenblatt.

Mario Cantone is also returning for the series as Charlotte’s friend Anthony Marantino. 

Grey’s Anatomy actor Sara Ramirez is also joining the show.

Sarah revealed nearly a month ago that the cast had begun table reads for the series, though she didn’t share the writer or title of the premiere episode. 

‘1st Table Read. Got here way too early. Nerves all a wonderful jumble. X, SJ,’ the New York theater star said in her Instagram caption.

Although the cast members now seem ready to go with the revival, Noth recently told Yahoo! Finance Live that he was initially ‘hesitant’ to return to Carrie Bradshaw’s world.

‘It was a little bit of a sort of creative negotiation because I didn’t really feel I had anything to offer in that role again,’ he admitted. ‘It kind of felt like I had done it.

‘But [executive producer] Michael Patrick King is just an incredible writer and has incredible creative ideas. And once we got together and talked about the potential of what we could do with the character, I was all in,’ he clarified.
