Fan favourite dramedy Sex and the City is officially arriving on Netflix, bringing its iconic fashion, frank conversations about love and life, and, of course, cosmopolitan cocktails, to a whole new audience.

The news comes after a deal was struck between Warner Bros. Discovery and Netflix, allowing all six seasons of the series to land on the streaming platform starting April 1, 2024. 

That's right, mark your calendars for a marathon session reliving all 94 episodes of the show that redefined female friendships and the pursuit of love in the vibrant chaos of New York City.

The arrival of Sex and the City on Netflix signifies a strategic move by the streaming giant to bolster its library with established hits. It's a win-win for both sides: Netflix gains a proven crowd-pleaser, while a whole new generation gets introduced to the world of Carrie Bradshaw's iconic Manolos.

However, it's important to note that this is just the beginning of the Sex and the City saga on streaming. While the original series finds its new home on Netflix, the sequel series, And Just Like That… remains exclusive to HBO Max.

In November 2023, Casey Bloys, the Chief of HBO, talked about the balance involved in licensing HBO content to Netflix.

“We have to be protective of the shows that we have and are successful,” he said. “But, you know, I’ve worked in television long enough that syndication used to be, that was the pot of gold. That was the brass ring that meant that your show was gonna go on and have a life after its initial run and live for decades. So the idea of selling a show outside of your ecosystem wasn’t an unusual idea, obviously at HBO we did it a lot with Band of Brothers, which was on, I think, History Network, and Entourage, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Sex and the City. We basically sold everything, so it’s not a new concept."

Bloys continued, “Obviously, streaming and companies kind of reorienting themselves has impacted that. But I think the way that we’re doing it somewhat cautiously, doing it co-exclusively, we’re never giving anybody an exclusive right to a show. What we’ve seen so far … with Ballers and any show that we’re putting on, we’re seeing an uptick on that. So it has been helpful. That said, I don’t think you’re going to see more recent shows, you’re not going to see the shows I presented here on anywhere else until years later, which is the syndication model, so I am comfortable with it.”
