Fans were not expecting such a dramatic return to the series, airing out their feelings on social media.

One viewer tweeted: "I’m emotionally exhausted from the premiere of “And Just Like That” #SATC"

While a second person wrote: "#AndJustLikeThat my heart is crushed. On ep 1. This show. I cannot. #[email protected]"

A third person voiced their anger writing: "Was anyone else yelling at the TV "CALL THE FUCKING AMBULANCE WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR. OMG!" I'M SO ANGRY #SATC"

Another fan agreed replying: "#AndJustLikeThat Peloton has a new role as the fifth character in #SATC (and a potential PR crisis)"

The comments continued with fans reflecting on the heartbreaking ending on Twitter.

"I'm not OK #AndJustLikeThat#SATC"

"Okay somebody else has to watch this so we can freak over the end of the first episode together #satc #mrbig"

"Really, @AndJustLikeThat? You do this to us in the *FIRST* episode?! I hate you, @HBO! #AndJustLikeThat#[email protected]"

"Omg @AndJustLikeThat#AndJustLikeThat#SATC Y’all didnt have to kill Mr. Big bro dam"

"Mr Big, I'll always cherish you… #SATC"


Fans were previously warned about the gut-wrenching season as a source who was at an early screening told The Sun: "The whole cinema were in floods of tears. It was totally unexpected and happened so fast.

"Of course this is Sex and the City so it was beautifully shot. But the shockwaves from the loss will dominate this first season. 

"Fans will be devastated."

The show's second episode focused around Mr. Big's death and Carrie's grief as she struggles to come to terms with her partner's passing.

The episode also mentioned the absense of Kim Cattrall's character Samantha Jones, which was explained as she had a falling out with BFF Carrie.

Samantha sent a floral arrangement to the funeral to give her condolences.


HBO Max previously clarified why fan-favorite Samatha would be missing from the reboot.

HBO Max's chief content officer Casey Bloys confirmed that the show's bosses thought that having all four original members still be best friends 17 years after the original show ended was unrealistic.

"They're not trying to say that these characters are reliving their 30s. It is very much a story about women in their 50s, and they are dealing with things that people deal with in their 50s," he said during a panel event on Wednesday July 7, 2021.

"In real life, people come into your life, people leave. Friendships fade, and new friendships start.

"So I think it is all very indicative of the real stages, the actual stages of life," Bloys continued.

"They're trying to tell an honest story about being a woman in her 50s in New York. So it should all feel somewhat organic, and the friends that you have when you're 30, you may not have when you're 50."

The first two episodes of And Just Like That are available to stream on HBO Max, as episode three will premier on Thursday, December 16.
