The Sex and the City sequel And Just Like That... has confirmed that four characters from the original series will be returning for the hotly anticipated reboot.

The 10-episode HBO Max revival will see Evan Handler will return as Charlotte's (Kristin Davis) husband Harry Goldenblatt and David Eigenberg will be back as Miranda's (Cynthia Nixon) husband Steve Brady.

Willie Garson will also be returning as Carrie Bradshaw's (Sarah Jessica Parker) best friend Stanford Blatch, while Mario Cantone will be back as event planner Anthony Marentino.

In a statement, executive producer Michael Patrick King said: "Everyone at And Just Like That… is thrilled to be able to continue the storylines of these beloved Sex and the City characters with the actors who made them so lovable."

Last month, the show confirmed that Chis Noth will reprise his role as Carrie's husband Mr Big.

It was also announced that former Grey's Anatomy star Sara Ramirez had been cast in the reboot as the franchise's first non-binary character.

The original Sex and the City series ran from 1998 to 2004 and starred (L-R) Cynthia Nixon, Kristin Davis, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kim Cattrall

The original series aired from 1998 to 2004, spanning 94 episodes during its six seasons. Two films were also made about the characters in 2008 and 2010.

Sex and the City followed best friends Carrie Bradshaw (Parker), Miranda Hobbs (Nixon), Samantha Jones (Cattrall) and Charlotte York (Davis) living in New York City.

And Just Like That... will follow Carrie, Charlotte and Miranda once again through their lives in NYC, this time navigating what love and friendships are like in their 50s.

However, Kim Cattrall will not be back as Samantha Jones. Her absence in the revived series will be part of the show's overall storyline.
