Kim Cattrall might not be returing as Samantha Jones in the upcoming Sex and The City reboot series but fans will get to watch her star in a different show all about love and relationships.
The Golden Globe winner will play a future version of Duff‘s character Sophie, who spends the show recounting the story of how she met her son’s father.
Much like Josh Radnor (and Bob Saget’s) Ted Mosby did in the original series!
So far we know that the story takes viewers back to 2021, when Sophie and her close-knit group of friends are in the midst of figuring out who they are, what they want out of life, and how to fall in love in the age of dating apps and limitless options.
Now joining the pair are Grown-ish star Francia Raisa, Homeland actor Suraj Sharma, The Royals’ Tom Ainsley and Space Force’s Tien Tran.
Lowell will play Jesse, an aspiring musician who works as an Uber driver to make ends meet. His character is described as having ‘a bit of an edge and cynical about love’ so he could be Sophie’s unattainable love interest.
Living with Jesse is his friend Sid, played by Sharma. Sid is a new bar owner and his personality is the complete opposite of that of his roommate.

Raisa plays Sophie’s friend Valentina. The two live together and Sophie relies on Valentina – an ‘impulsive and adventurous’ aspiring stylist – for humour in her life.
Rounding up the gang, Tran will play Ellen, Jesse’s adopted sister who just moved to New York from a small country town after separating from her wife.
Finally, Ainsley will portray Charlie, an aspiring model who comes from a conservative and aristocratic family who fell in love with Valentina at London Fashion Week and followed her to the Big Apple.
Unfortunately, no release date has yet been confirmed and while the show will air on Hulu in the US, a UK broadcaster or streamer has not yet been found.
Since this is the fourth attempt at creating a female-centred spin-off show since the first script in 2013, fans should be able to wait a bit longer knowing this one will definitely be happening.
