Sarita Choudhury, Nicole Ari Parker, Karen Pittman Join ‘Sex and the City’ Reboot

The new cast members who will join Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon, and Kristin Davis on the upcoming series ‘And Just Like That…’ have been officially announced.

AceShowbizSarita Choudhury, Nicole Ari Parker, and Karen Pittman have joined the cast of the “Sex and the City” reboot following years of criticism about the original series lack of diversity.

HBO Max have revealed that the trio will be joining original stars Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon, and Kristin Davis for the new series, titled “And Just Like That…

Homeland” actress Sarita will play Seema Patel, “a single, self-made powerhouse Manhattan real estate broker,” “Empire” star Nicole will portray Lisa Todd Wexley, “a Park Avenue mother of three and documentarian,” and “Luke Cage” alum Karen will play Dr. Nya Wallace, “a brilliant, challenging Columbia Law professor.”

It is not yet known how the women will fit into the lives of main characters Carrie Bradshaw (Parker), Miranda Hobbes (Nixon) and Charlotte York (Davis) but the show’s executive producer Michael Patrick King welcomed them to the cast.

“Everyone at And Just Like That… is thrilled to have these amazing and vibrant actors join the Sex and the City family,” he said. “Each of them will add their unique spark and big heart to these new characters and the stories we are about to tell.”

Kim Cattrall will not be starring in the revival series as Samantha Jones and HBO Max have said her absence will reflect the “actual stages of life” that often sees friends part ways.

The streamer’s chief content officer Casey Bloys previously said, “They’re not trying to say that these characters are reliving their 30s. It is very much a story about women in their 50s, and they are dealing with things that people deal with in their 50s.”

“In real life, people come into your life, people leave. Friendships fade, and new friendships start. So I think it is all very indicative of the real stages, the actual stages of life … They’re trying to tell an honest story about being a woman in her 50s in New York. So it should all feel somewhat organic, and the friends that you have when you’re 30, you may not have when you’re 50.”
