Sex and the City first premiered on HBO 25 years ago today, and, regardless of your feelings about Carrie Bradshaw — whether they resemble a Manolo Blahnik-type of love or a break-up-with-her-on-a-post-it-note level of distaste — you really can’t deny the columnist-turned-podcaster’s impact. Bradshaw has six seasons of an original series, two movies, a reboot and an often-overlooked prequel under her designer belt. And despite the criticisms over And Just Like That Season 2, the buzz, especially surrounding Kim Cattrall’s return as Samantha Jones, has never been bigger.
While Max plans to mark the occasion with an immersive pop-up experience in NYC, And Just Like That…It’s Been 25 Years, a Sex and the City Experience, we’ve got another idea. To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the original Sex and the City series premiere, now is the perfect time to take a stroll down memory lane (in some fabulous shoes, no doubt) and look back at the Carrie Bradshaw Universe. Here’s how (and where) to watch every Sex and the City spinoff, prequel series and movie in 2023.
How many Sex and the City movies and shows are there?
The CBU is comprised of three shows and two movies (so far). For series, there’s the original Sex and the City, the prequel series, The Carrie Diaries and the recent Max Original sequel, And Just Like That.
As far as Sex and the City movies go, there have been two feature-length films released in theaters: Sex and the City (the movie) and Sex and the City 2.
