The boys are back in town for the “Sex and the City” reboot.

HBO Max has announced the newest additions to the eagerly anticipated revival, “And Just Like That…”

But what’s old is new – or vice versa.

Four of the original show’s favorite characters are confirmed to return for the Michael Patrick King-produced dramedy.

Evan Handler’s Harry Goldenblatt, Mario Cantone’s Anthony Marentio, Willie Garson’s Stanford Blatch and David Eigenberg’s Steve Brady, will all appear in the 10-episode series.

“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,” King said with Wednesday’s announcement.

All four men played central figures in the lives of the three original central characters: Carrie, Miranda and Charlotte.

Both Eigenberg and Handler portray spouses: Miranda’s lovable bar owner husband and Charlotte’s messy lawyer hubby respectively.

Meanwhile, Stanford and Anthony began “Sex and the City” as trusted friends of Carrie and Charlotte – and arch enemies. Then the pair found unlikely love with one another in the “Sex and the City 2” movie. The couple tied the knot in an over-the-top Liza Minnelli-officiated ceremony. (The Emmy, Golden Globe, Oscar, Tony Award-winning diva audaciously belted out Beyonce’s iconic anthem “Single Ladies” during the extravagant affair.)

This quartet joins previously confirmed cast members Sarah Jessica Parker as Carrie Bradhsaw, Cynthia Nixon as Miranda Hobbs, Kristin Davis as Charlotte York, Chris Noth as Mr. Big, and Sara Ramirez, as nonbinary podcast host Che Diaz.

The new series is being considered a continuation of Carrie, Miranda and Charlotte’s “journey from the complicated reality of life and friendship in their 30s to the even more complicated reality of life and friendship in their 50s.”

Since the show was announced in January, fans have wondered who else will be joining or returning for “And Just Like That…”

Not mincing words about her dislike of Parker, original “Sex and the City” star Kim Cattrall infamously exited the franchise after six seasons and two movies – as sexually liberated publicist Samantha Jones.
