Stars Sarah Jessica Parker, 56, Kristin Davis, 56, and Cynthia Nixon, 55, are back for the eagerly anticipated HBO Max and Sky Comedy reboot.
It arrives 23 years after the original TV series debuted and 11 years since the second film.
But some devotees were left disappointed to see a favourite character dying, while Kim Cattrall’s Samantha Jones maneater was conspicuously absent from proceedings.
The first episode left viewers shocked, as Carrie’s husband John Big (played by actor Chris Noth) died from a heart attack.
Cattrall’s absence was explained away just as abruptly, with the news that Samantha now lives in London.

In 2017, Cattrall, 65, said she would not return to the role but denied she had made “diva” money demands.
She claimed Parker could have been “nicer” to her, adding: “I never asked for any money, I never asked for any projects, so to be thought of as some kind of diva is absolutely ridiculous.”
Actors joining the remaining trio include Sarah Ramirez, Nicole Ari Parker, Karen Pittman and Sarita Chouhdury.
The original show set in New York was based on Candace Bushnell’s characters from her 1996 book of the same title.
