For a show that skyrocketed in the 90s, Sex and the City is still an iconic watch. The Sex and the City cast was star-studded, with actresses Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall, Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon. The hit drama series recently became available to stream on Netflix, opening the show up to a whole new audience and an entirely new generation.

Sex columnist, Carrie Bradshaw and her three best friends – Samantha, Miranda and Charlotte – live and learn while exploring the Manhattan dating scene. The 30-minute episodes, which originally aired from 1998 to 2004, follow the love and friendships of the four single New Yorkers. Now audiences can enjoy the fashion-forward females and their endless gossip sessions at any time of the day.

Even for audiences unfamiliar with the show itself, many are familiar with the fab four. The series was adapted into a pair of feature films (2008 and 2010) which introduced the characters to an entirely new age group. This was followed by a revival in the form of Max's And Just Like That... in 2021, and in between there was the 2013 CW prequel show, The Carrie Diaries. That series, starring AnnaSophia Robb as Carrie Bradshaw, follows the character as a teenager dealing with first loves, friendships and interning in Manhattan.
