After a season, HBO Max’s comedy-drama series, “And Just Like That,” came to an end today. Parker, 56, one of the show’s main stars, took to social media and wrote a heartfelt message.
“From Manhattan, the Bronx and all the boroughs in between,” she began. “To all those on the bridge that beautiful, long last night in Paris. There were hundreds of hands involved in creating our first season of @justlikethatmax.”
The actress continued, “I raise a glass and toast every single person who contributed their time, talent and devotion. And. To our audience who welcomed us, spent time with us and for whom we toil, you are the reason we woke up everyday and went to work, trying our very best to offer a story and adventure,” adding, “We thank you from the bottom of our hearts. The final episode of Season 1 is available to stream now on @hbomax.”
Parker concluded her message by writing, “Cheers, à votre santé and a bounty of love and affection. ‘Til we meet again. X, SJ.”

Finding Out About ‘And Just Like That’
During an episode of HBO Max’s “The Roundtable,” Parker, who plays Carrie Bradshaw on the hit series, admitted to feeling very emotional when she found out about the reboot.
“I didn’t think it was going to happen,” the “Sex and the City” alum said.
Co-star Kristin Davis, who plays Charlotte York Goldenblatt, explained she “almost dropped” her phone when she heard the news that the show had been given the go-ahead.
“Of course we were all excited and scared,” Cynthia Nixon, who plays Miranda Hobbes, 55, quipped.
Sarah Jessica Parker Was ‘Hesitant’ About ‘Sex And The City’
During a chat with Interview Magazine in December, Parker says she “was really hesitant to do Sex and the City. I was terrified of it, and not in a good way, not in the same way I’m terrified of working in the theater. I was very nervous about doing a television series. It sounded depressing to me.”
She explained, “[With TV, I thought] you’d just never get better, you’d just get comfortable, and that’s it. You can’t quit. You can’t work in the theater. Can’t do a movie when you like. You can’t just be with your friends and go to dinner. And then you’re in people’s homes and your life changes—you can’t go to the market by yourself and pick your own tomatoes.”
She revealed that it was her husband, Matthew Broderick, 59, who pushed her to do the series.
“But Matthew said, ‘I think you should do this, because it’s a really good part, and you’ve never played one like it. The worst-case scenario is it’ll be successful,” she said. “Maybe it’ll be really collaborative, and you’ll learn something.’ And in fact he was right.”
