Writers for the upcoming HBO Max reboot of Sex and the City are adding more diversity to Carrie’s circle of friends.

TVLine confirmed this week three actresses of color are boarding the show titled And Just Like That…

The outlet reports the three are among six new characters joining the series alongside leads Sarah Jessica Parker (Carrie) Kristin Davis (Charlotte) and Cynthia Nixon (Miranda).

As previously reported, SATC alum Kim Cattrall (Samantha) will not be returning to the show, after she had a falling out with series star and executive producer, Sarah Jessica Parker.

In addition to the diverse casting, half of the writer’s room will now include writers of color led by returning SATC showrunner Michael Patrick King.

“It’s incredibly diverse in a really exciting way,” Parker told Vanity Fair in January about the show’s new writers. She added that their “life experience, political world views, and social world views” will help to inform the scripts.

The Emmy Award-winning original version of Sex and the City ran from 1998 to 2004 on HBO. The main cast members will be in their 50s as they continue to navigate New York City, their friendships, and of course their love lives.

An official release date and casting details for And Just Like That… will be announced later.
