“I am a woman in my 50s, so I understand perfectly well that your life will not end, whether you find a boyfriend or girlfriend or not, whether you have children or not, right?” Davis said. “We can testify that this is not the end and is not boring. So I never doubted that we can tell interesting stories. “
What kind of stories they were, no one can spoil. Interested fans analyzed this 30-second teaser with the exegetical rigor of ancient hieroglyphs. So here’s what I learned: Big (Chris Noth) is not dead. Samantha is not dead, although Cattrall’s absence means she does not appear on screen.
“Nobody died,” King said. No one? “No one.”
And yet Willie Garson, who played Carrie’s best friend Stanford Blatch, died during the filming of And Just So, a sad reminder of the past tense and the grief it can bring. His death was not written in the series.
“Because it wasn’t charming,” King said. “And I knew the public would find out.”
And Just Like That wants to charm. This is not the first comedy about middle-aged women. After Sex and the City ended, television aired Cougartown, Hot in Cleveland, Junior. September brought Julie Delpy’s On the Edge. But a few flashy necklaces aside, none of these shows were as glamorous as Sex and the City, and none were as revolutionary – in the frankness of sex talk, the insistence on feminine subjectivity, the defense of the singles. women. even if they connected with almost everyone.
Will “And Just Like That” have the same cultural, fashion impact even in a culture obsessed with young people, even in a world filled with content? Predictably, King claims that it is possible.
“If it was an inspiring way – beautiful apartments, stylish clothes, motivated people – it’s still encouraging,” he said.
