Sex and the City is one of the most loved rom-com TV-Series. It aired between June 1998 till February 2004, over six seasons and 94 episodes. The entire show is based in the city of New York.

Sex and the City: Plot
The story of Sex and the City is about four characters: Samantha, Carrie, Charlotte, and Miranda. Carrie Bradshaw is a columnist for a paper, “Sex and the City.” She and her friends come to the conclusion that it is time that they have sex as men do. By that, they mean sex with no strings attached. The story goes on over six seasons, with all the four girlfriends finding out what it means to love someone and their own sexuality. They date several men, try several things, and this is how they are sure of what they want in the end. It also goes into the questions like is there such a thing as “The One,” etc. A beautiful story about love and friendship, it was one of the most-watched shows of its time.
The show ended with Carrie’s final voiceover saying that the relationship one has with their own self is the most challenging, exciting, and important relationship. It is important to find someone who loves you that you yourself love.
And Just Like that Cast:
Carrie Bradshaw, played by Sarah Jessica Parker:
Carrie is the main character of the show. She is a freelance writer for her weekly paper, “Sex and the City.” She is famous for her bold and unique sense of fashion. Carrie is also known to be a shoe-shopping addict, and her Manolos and Jimmy Choos remain famous even after the end of the show. In addition to this, she always goes beyond her credit card limit – which is her flaw. Towards the end of the show, she becomes a writer for big papers like Vogue and New York.
Charlotte York, played by Kristin Davis:
Charlotte is the youngest and most traditional of the group. She is also pretty conservative and values “True” love over lust. She scoffs at Samantha’s promiscuous ways. In her younger years, she was a model student, a cheerleader, and was at a sorority during her college days. Charlotte gives up her job after her first marriage, which ultimately ends with a divorce. She falls in love with her divorce lawyer, converts into Judaism for him. At the end of the season, she has two kids: Lily, an adopted girl from China, and Rose, whom she conceives after much difficulty.
Miranda Hobbes, played by Cynthia Nixon:
Miranda is the most career-minded woman of the bunch. She’s a lawyer and has very deeply distrustful views on men and love. If Carrie is the voice of the show, Miranda is Carrie’s voice of reason. She changes the most after the birth of her son, Brady, and finally gets together with Steve at the end of the show.
Samantha Jones, played by Kim Cattrall: Not in the Reboot
The oldest and most confident of the group is Samantha. She avoids emotions at all costs. Samantha believes that she has had several soulmates. The difference in hers and Charlotte’s believes usually leads to the two having fallouts with the other. Her relationships are more unconventional, including a relationship with a lesbian painter. Unfortunately, she doesn’t return for the reboot.
