"And Just Like That …," the HBO Max sequel series to HBO's "Sex and the City," will premiere in December, the streaming service announced Tuesday.

The series' Instagram account and HBO Max's social media additionally posted a 30-second video of production snippets, with star Sarah Jessica Parker, 56, on location greeting viewers, "Hello from New York City, Fifth Avenue, shooting, as we speak, the next chapter of 'Sex and the City,' or as we like to call it, 'And Just Like That …,' with some beloved friends," indicating co-stars Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon.

"But in the meantime," she continues, " 'And Just Like That …' will premiere in December on HBO Max." Blowing a kiss, she concludes, "Ciao."

No specific date was given and none of the stars otherwise have commented publicly. The 10-episode series, announced in January, follows sophisticated yet fumbling New Yorker friends Carrie Bradshaw (Parker), Miranda Hobbes (Nixon) and Charlotte York (Davis) as former 30-somethings now navigating life and friendship in their 50s. Parker and Nixon each won an Emmy Award for their roles on the original show, which took the 2001 outstanding comedy series prize.

Kim Cattrall, who earned five Emmy nominations playing fellow friend Samantha Jones in the 1998–2004 original, and who reprised that role in the 2008 and 2010 sequel movies, said in 2017 she had no plans to return for any further "Sex and the City" projects.

In two separate posts, the series' Instagram account also confirmed previous reports that Christopher Jackson (the original George Washington in Broadway's "Hamilton") had joined the cast in the role of Herbert Wexley; and LeRoy McClain (singer Shy Baldwin in "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel") in the role of Andre Rashad Wallace.

In May, HBO Max announced that Chris Noth will reprise his recurring role as business mogul John James "Mr. Big" Preston. Mario Cantone, David Eigenberg, Evan Handler and the late Willie Garson also reprise their roles, with Sara Ramírez, Sarita Choudhury, Nicole Ari Parker and Karen Pittman joining the cast.
