“25 Years of Fabulous”: ‘Sex and the City’ Reaches Silver Milestone and Here’s How The Cast Celebrated

by Ashley Latcha

On June 6, 1998, HBO aired the pilot episode that turned into the most iconic female-led television series that still serves as the backbone for trends in fashion, sex, and the consummation of oh-so-many Cosmopolitans.

Centered around the sex lives of four high-profile women living in Manhattan, Sex and the City, created by Darren Star and co-produced by Sarah Jessica Parker (Carrie Bradshaw herself), ended up with 94 episodes over a six-season run, 2 movies, 2 television spin-offs, 18 awards, and too-many-to-count high fashion props chosen by the award-winning stylist, Patricia Field.

SATC celebrated its 25th anniversary on Tuesday, and the cast found creative ways to commemorate the milestone.

Sarah Jessica Parker, Kristin Davis, Cynthia Nixon, and even Kim Cattrall showed small tokens of appreciation for their legendary roles through social media.

Kristin Davis, who plays Park Avenue princess Charlotte York-Goldenblatt, wrote on Instagram: “It is impossible to believe it has been 25 years! I consider myself the luckiest person in the world to be a part of this story that connects so many of us together. It has and continues to be a JOY!”

Cynthia Nixon, a.k.a. Miranda Hobbes, Esq., also shared a nostalgic piece on Instagram with photos of herself from season one of SATC and a recent photoshoot taken during the filming of And Just Like That…Part of the caption reads: “How it started ➡️ how it’s going for Miranda Hobbes ❤️”

As well as a recent photo of her and Davis captioned, “Here’s to 25 years of incredible friendship!”

And Sarah Jessica Parker who plays the quintessential New York City columnist and renowned shoe-a-holic, Carrie Bradshaw, shared her own memorable moment by posting a photo of her signature gold “Carrie” necklace saying, “It’s our silver anniversary but the memories will always be gold.”

And even though Kim Cattrall is still keeping her distance from the show, our mother Samantha Jones still acknowledged the occasion by liking a tweet posted by the original author of the series, Candace Bushnell, as well as a fan-made appreciation tweet for Sam Jones.

The rest of the cast decided to show the hit series some love as well.

The official Instagram account for And Just Like That… made a “25 years of fabulous” post captioning the clips of the youthful and smiling quartet with: “And here’s to more fabulous years to come.”

In a video posted by HBO, Nixon, Parker, and Davis thanked all the fans for showing love and gratitude to them and the show for all these years. “We just want to say thank you for supporting us because that’s how come we’ve been able to do it for so long,” Davis said while hand-in-hand with Parker.

And Mario Cantone, who plays ours and Charlotte’s favorite wedding planner Anthony, also shared the trailer to And Just Like That… to celebrate “a happy 25” for SATC.

The second season of the latest spin-off And Just Like That… will premiere on June 22 exclusively on Max and will continue to follow the provocative, gossip-filled lives of Carrie, Miranda, and Charlotte (and this time with a word from Samantha).
