Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon, and Kristin Davis will star in the reboot, airing December 9 on HBO Max.
Willie Garson, who played Stanford Blatch, was seen filming before he passed away at the age of 57.
It's still unclear whether Aidan Shaw, played by John Corbett, is a part of the reboot.
Sarah Jessica Parker will be returning as writer and designer shoe enthusiast Carrie Bradshaw.
Immediately, longtime fans were quick to share their excitement for the new installment, with Parker's post alone receiving over 1 million likes in less than 24 hours.
"We have some new stories to tell," Parker wrote on Instagram. "We are excited."
So far, Parker has been spotted sporting multiple Carrie Bradshaw-esque looks on the set of the show's reboot.
Cynthia Nixon will be reprising her role as corporate lawyer Miranda Hobbes.
Nixon, who received a Golden Globe nomination for best supporting actress in Netflix's "Ratched," will be returning to the reboot, she announced on social media.
"Anything is possible. This is New York," she captioned a tweet of the trailer for "Just Like That..."
Since the original show aired, Nixon has continued to act while being active in politics. A member of the New York chapter of the Democratic Socialists of America, Nixon ran against Governor Andrew Cuomo in New York's Democratic primary election in 2018. Though she lost the primary, she has remained a staunch figure in progressive politics.
Kristin Davis will be returning to the role of Charlotte York-Goldenblatt.
Davis played the role of New York gallerist Charlotte York-Goldenblatt in all six seasons of the show and in the two feature films.
Not much is known about her character's arc in the reboot. However, it can likely be assumed that her story will pick up where the final movie left off as she raises her two daughters, Lily and Rose, with her husband, Harry Goldenblatt.
Davis was spotted on the set of the show's reboot walking a French bulldog, hinting that her Cavalier King Charles spaniel from the original series, Elizabeth Taylor, will not be making an appearance.
While Parker, Nixon, and Davis are returning to their iconic roles, Kim Cattrall, who played sex-positive publicist Samantha Jones, is not. In an interview with TVLine in February, HBO Max's chief content officer, Casey Bloys, explained how the show would address Cattrall's absence.
"Just as in real life, people come into your life, people leave," Bloys said. "Friendships fade, and new friendships start. So I think it is all very indicative of the real stages, the actual stages of life."
Chris Noth, who played Carrie Bradshaw's love interest John James Preston, aka Mr. Big, will be returning.
"I'm thrilled to be working with Chris again on 'And Just Like That…'" executive producer Michael Patrick King said in a statement, The Hollywood Reporter reported in May. "How could we ever do a new chapter of the 'Sex and the City' story without our Mr. Big?"
Noth played the role of Carrie's emotionally unavailable love interest in all six seasons of the original show and in both of the feature films.
In August, he was spotted on set alongside Sarah Jessica Parker, notably not wearing a wedding band.
Rumors have swirled for weeks about the fate of Mr. and Mrs. Preston after a portion of the show's script was reported on by Page Six. The leaked pages made it appear as though the couple's marriage was on the rocks or over entirely.
John Corbett, who played Aidan Shaw, also said he'll be returning to the series, though he wasn't spotted on set.
Corbett appeared throughout three seasons of the six-season show, in addition to the second "Sex and the City" movie.
"I'm going to do the show," Corbett, 59, told Page Six in April. "I think I might be in quite a few [episodes]. I like all those people, they've been very nice to me."
However, despite seemingly confirming he would be in the reboot, Corbett has not been seen on set and was not among the cast listed in HBO Max's fall line-up announcement.
When Insider spoke with the costume designers for "And Just Like That..." ahead of the show's premiere, they were tight-lipped about whether Corbett would actually be returning to the series.
"I'm not saying anything," costume designer Molly Rogers told Insider.
Jon Tenney was spotted getting cozy with Parker on set, hinting that Carrie may have a new love interest in the reboot.
In October, Tenney and Parker were seen filming what appeared to be a date scene, though the actor has yet to be announced as an official cast member. The pair even shared a kiss in front of Bradshaw's iconic brownstone apartment.
Little is known about his role in the reboot, and how his character will play into the storyline between Carrie and Mr. Big.
David Eigenberg, who played Miranda Hobbes' love interest Steve Brady, was also seen on set in New York City.
On June 9, executive producer Michael Patrick King confirmed Eigenberg would be reprising his role as Steve Brady. Eigenberg himself had previously given fans hope he would be appearing in the project, which he called "interesting."
"[Cynthia Nixon's] a dream to work with," he told Us Weekly.
Niall Cunningham will play a grown-up version of Miranda and Steve's son, Brady Hobbes.
Cree Cicchino will play Brady's girlfriend.
Cree Cicchino, who appeared in both seasons of Netflix's "Mr. Iglesias," will play Luisa Torres. She shared the news on Instagram.
Evan Handler will also be returning as Harry Goldenblatt, Charlotte's husband.
Handler played Kristin Davis' love interest in seasons five and six, as well as in both of the "Sex and the City" films. The character of Harry is universally adored by fans of the show, who were excited to learn on the reboot's Instagram page that he would be returning.
"I'm schvitzing like a pudding at a picnic THIS IS AMAZING," one fan commented.
Others wondered about his storyline and how it would play into the other characters'. Referencing Goldenblatt's career as a divorce attorney, one user commented, "Will somebody be needing his services?"
Cathy Ang confirmed she's portraying Charlotte and Harry's oldest daughter, Lily Goldenblatt.
Ang also shared the news herself on Instagram, writing, "And just like that… I'm crying YET AGAIN." She added, "Thank you to the @justlikethatmax family for taking me in, and giving Lily such a wonderful voice."
Ang, 26, may be recognizable to viewers for her roles in "Over the Moon" and "Ramy."
Alexa Swinton will play the role of their younger daughter, Rose.
Deadline reported in July that Swinton was joining the cast as Rose Goldenblatt.
She also shared the news on Instagram, with the caption, "ahhhhh!!!!!"
Swinton plays Paul Giamatti's daughter, Eva Rhoades, in Showtime's "Billions," and she also appeared in M Night Shyamalan's 2021 thriller "Old."
Willie Garson, who played Stanford Blatch, passed away in September, but he was seen filming scenes for the reboot before his death.
Willie Garson's casting was previously confirmed by the "And Just Like That..." Instagram page.
In January, the actor posted a photo to his own Instagram account with a headline announcing "And Just Like That..." Kristin Davis commented on the post, saying, "Of course Stanford will be back !!"
Garson was spotted filming the series over the summer. However, on September 21, Garson's son announced that Garson had passed away, aged 57. Tributes from his fellow cast members and friends began to pour in and HBO confirmed the loss.
"The 'Sex and the City' family has lost one of its own. Our amazing Willie Garson," executive producer Michael Patrick King said in a statement to Variety.
"His spirit and his dedication to his craft was present every day filming 'And Just Like That.' He was there — giving us his all — even while he was sick. His multitude of gifts as an actor and person will be missed by everyone. In this sad, dark moment we are comforted by our memory of his joy and light."
King later confirmed Garson's death would not affect the storyline of his character in the upcoming reboot.
"Nobody's dead," King told The New York Times, also negating rumors that either Samantha Jones or Mr. Big might meet their demise in the reboot. "Because it wasn't charming. And I knew that the audience would know."
Mario Cantone, who played Stanford's love interest Anthony Marentino, will also be back.
Cantone was a regular cast member throughout the show's run, as well as in both feature films. He is most well known for being Stanford's primary love interest and Charlotte York's wedding planner and best friend.
"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 of Cantone, Handler, Eigenberg, and Garson's casting, according to Deadline.
Bridget Moynahan, who played Mr. Big's younger wife and eventual ex Natasha in the third season, was spotted on set, as well.
Moynahan's return to the series has yet to be confirmed by the network. However, judging by photos taken of her on the set of the reboot, it's safe to say that fans will finally get to see where Natasha ended up after telling Carrie she had not only ruined her marriage, but also her lunch.
Julie Halston will return as Bitsy Von Muffling, a socialite and wife of piano bar owner Bobby Fine, who was played by Broadway alum Nathan Lane.
Though she only appeared in a few episodes of the original show and only made a brief cameo in the first "Sex and the City" movie, it will be interesting to see if she's still married to Fine and what has become of the child they had together.
Sara Ramírez, a nonbinary actor best known for their role on "Grey's Anatomy," will play comedian and podcast host Che Diaz.
Ramírez previously made history as the longest-running LGBTQ+ character on a television show for their role as Dr. Callie Torres on "Grey's Anatomy." They were a cast member on the show for 13 years.
In "And Just Like That...", Ramirez will play a nonbinary, queer stand-up comedian who hosts a podcast on which Carrie Bradshaw is a regular guest, according to Deadline.
"Everyone at 'And Just Like That…' is beyond thrilled that a dynamically talented actor such as Sara Ramírez has joined the 'Sex and the City' family," executive producer Michael Patrick King said in a statement. "Sara is a one-of-a-kind talent, equally at home with comedy and drama – and we feel excited and inspired to create this new character for the show."

According to IMDB, Hernandez will appear in all 10 episodes of the limited series.
"The Morning Show" actress Karen Pittman will portray Dr. Nya Wallace, a law professor at Columbia.
Pittman can be seen in multiple scenes of the show's latest trailer alongside Cynthia Nixon.

"They are being very, very conscious about understanding that New York has to reflect the way New York looks today," he said.
"Empire" actress Nicole Ari Parker was also spotted on the set of the reboot. She will play Lisa Todd Wexley.

According to Deadline, Parker will play a Park Avenue mother of three and documentarian.

"Each of them will add their unique spark and big heart to these new characters and the stories we are about to tell."
