The cast of Sex And The City, Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon, and Kristin Davis took to social media to celebrate the show’s 25th anniversary on Tuesday.
The hit HBO show initially premiered on June 6, 1998. The world was introduced to four smart and dynamic New York-based women, Carrie Bradshaw, Charlotte York, Miranda Hobbes and Samantha Jones as they navigate the dating scene in New York City and maintain their close friendship. They, despite their differences and ever-changing sex lives stick together through the ups and downs.
After six seasons, the show ended in 2004 the series’ popularity led to two films by the same name. Later two spinoffs And Just Like That, which sees Carrie, Charlotte and Miranda taking on life in their 50s, and The Carrie Diaries, which followed Carrie’s journey through high school were released.
Cynthia Nixon posted a throwback photo of her character followed by a recent one on Instagram, writing in the caption, “How it started, how it’s going for Miranda Hobbes.”
Her post said, “I cannot believe Sex and the City premiered 25 years ago today. Before the show, I never thought anything as big and wonderful as this could happen to me. And now I can’t imagine my life without it! I know it holds a special place in so many of your hearts too, so thank you for watching.”
Davis shared a video with clips from the original show on her Instagram. She wrote, “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! Thank you to all of you who have come along for the ride. We love you.”
Sarah Jessica Parker shared a photo of Carrie’s iconic gold necklace, with the caption, “It’s our silver anniversary but the memories will always be gold.”
In a video posted on Instagram by HBO, Davis says, “We’re just here to say thank you.”
“Twenty-five years, oh my gosh, what has happened in our lives in 25 years?” Parker said while valiantly fighting off the cascading flowers on her left shoulder. “We’ve created families. We’ve created relationships. I realized that you were having the same experience in your lives, and we love you for joining us for so many years.”
“Put on your party dress and pour a cosmo! It’s the 25th anniversary of Sex and the City,” HBO captioned the video.
