In an interview with Vanity Fair's Julie Miller published on Friday, series star Sarah Jessica Parker said COVID-19 will be included in the HBO Max show, which is titled "And Just Like That...", but didn't give specifics about the plot.

Stating that it will show how the virus affected the friends and city, she said, "Obviously (it will) be part of the storyline, because that's the city (these characters) live in".

The actress said she believes the show will also attempt to answer how COVID-19 has "changed relationships once friends disappear". I have great faith that the writers are going to examine it all ... Big (played by Chris Noth) were happily married, despite Carrie's run-in with ex-fiancé Aiden Shaw, Charlotte and husband Harry Goldenblatt have two children, Miranda and Steve had coped with his extramarital affair and Samantha, having broken up with actor Smith Jerrod, was single and swinging. Kim Cattrall, who played Samantha Jones, did not sign on for the 10-episode show, having outgrown the franchise. Parker has previously confirmed that the character of Samantha will not be replaced.

Parker continued: "Cynthia [Nixon], Kristin [Davis], and I are all excited about the time that has passed".

China was one of the few major markets were sales actually increased for both automakers. Toyota's global sales decline was in line with the market, dropping 10.5pc year on year.

Anyway, Parker says that the new batch of episodes will look at the ways that the beloved characters have and haven't adapted to the new world of social media and the political realities of the new decade, as well as where they are professionally. Are they like some people who are confused, threatened, nervous (by what's happening in the world)? I am both terrified and anxious about the entire production-terrified because there is so much they can get wrong that'll continue to weaken the legacy of an iconic show, and anxious because I know the scrutiny is about to be vast.

Sarah added that she is still waiting to receive scripts for the show from creator Michael Patrick King who has put together a writers room made up entirely of women.

"We're not looking to create a fourth character." she explained, "We have New York City as the fourth character". What has changed? What is their life like? Besides Sarah Jessica Parker playing columnist Carrie Bradshaw, Cynthia Nixon will reprise her role as attorney Miranda Hobbes and Kristin Davis will continue playing the family-oriented gallery director Charlotte York. Is she still writing a column? Parker asked. "Has she written any more books?" Or does she have a podcast?
