On Thursday, HBO debuted the first full-length trailer for Sex and the City 2 — nine years after it premiered. The film became an internet sensation after its 1998 release, and brought plenty of questions about what Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda would be up to in New York City in 2017.
When the cast of the show reunited at this year’s Emmys, for example, Tina Fey said it was “so not what we were expecting.”
After the trailer’s release, Twitter users took the opportunity to express some confusion about what the show will be about:
Friends we always thought Carrie might get a job but now it looks like #SATC2 will basically be #MidnightDawn” about a “mean girl” at the city’s realest high school. — Natasha Leger (@NatashaLeger) September 22, 2017
😁#SATC2 It’s a Good Morning To The City, As Samantha would say. — Nick Saint (@HPT_Starchild) September 22, 2017
CARRIE REJOINS SATC WTF. GLAD SHE STILL WANTS TO BE A SOCIAL NETWORKER — Desirée (@deajohman) September 22, 2017
Seriously the eight year wait for the trailer was too long I CANT WAIT TO SEETH @hopelessfilmgirl 💓 #SATC2 — Andrew Goodshew (@awgoodshew) September 22, 2017
Wait, does the #SATC2 trailer make anything clear? My eyeballs are scratching their head. — Amber C. De Vogl (@AmberDeVogl) September 22, 2017
Some people have even had to temporarily shift their focus to wondering what Sarah Jessica Parker will be up to:
Of course @SexAndTheCity has a new trailer, but there’s still no Sarah Jessica Parker in sight. You need her – not Charlotte. #SATC2 — Sarah Sims (@msims) September 22, 2017
At least someone understands.
PLEASE use #SATC2 on twitter, because without @realSarahJSantos we would have nothing! https://t.co/XDEqJZg5R3 — Kate Somerville (@Kate_Somerville) September 22, 2017
Somewhere Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda are in their own Sex and the City 2, waiting for word from New York City that they’re getting picked up by HBO.
