As they embraced, Bradshaw (Parker) looked smitten as she opted to make dinner from scratch, rather than order from one of her go-to takeout joints. 

The New York City columnist, who famously used her oven as extra storage for her Manolos for years, also reunited with her best friends Charlotte York (Kristin Davis) and Miranda Hobbes (Cynthia Nixon). 

The trio were dressed to the nines as they stood in the middle of a crowded restaurant side-by-side.

Bradshaw appeared to be waving to someone across the room, while York smiled with a few garment bags in her hand. 

It’s highly likely the group was meeting up with Lisa Todd Wexley, portrayed by Nicole Ari Parker, who has been billed to replace Kim Cattrall.

In July, leaked scripts revealed that Carrie wasn’t so sure about her role in her marriage to Big, according to Page Six.

In the scene, Carrie is dining out with a few of her best friends, including Stanford Blatch (Willie Garson), Hobbes (Nixon) and York (Davis). 

Bradshaw, who’s now in her 50’s and hosts a podcast, seems to say she isn’t in a good place: ‘I was taping the podcast, I was washing my hair. Yes, I wasn’t eating or sleeping, but at least I felt good about my marriage. Now I’m just one of the wives he was taking care of?’

Carrie and Big were married at the New York Public Library after plans failed for an elaborate luxury wedding in the first Sex and the City movie.

Noth admitted he was ‘hesitant’ to reprise his Mr. Big role for the revival and felt as though he gave the character his all, but was swayed to come back after a little pep talk from producers.

‘It was a little bit of a sort of creative negotiation because I didn’t really feel I had anything to offer in that role again,’ he told Yahoo! Finance Live. ‘It kind of felt like I had done it.

‘But [executive producer] Michael Patrick King is just an incredible writer and has incredible creative ideas. And once we got together and talked about the potential of what we could do with the character, I was all in.’

Chris played the commitment-phobe financial adviser while SJP portrayed a best-selling novelist and columnist in the series which debuted in 1998.

In addition to Nicole Ari Parker, Karen Pittman and Sarita Choudhury are coming on to the show as newcomers. 

SATC has long-sparked criticism due to the lack of diversity in its largely-white cast as well as shocking storylines, including Kim Cattrall’s character Samantha — who will not be returning for the reboot — dating a black man and fighting with his sister over her race.

The casting has been welcomed with open arms by fans, who praised the move on social media following show writer Michael Patrick King and lead lady and executive producer Sarah’s vow to create greater inclusivity.
