Cynthia Nixon Reveals She Is Directing an Episode of 'SATC' Revival 'And Just Like That...'

Cynthia Nixon will also be reprising her longtime role of Miranda Hobbs in the upcoming Sex and the City revival

Cynthia Nixon is stepping into the director's chair!

On Thursday, the 55-year-old actress — who starred as Miranda Hobbs in Sex and the City and its two feature films — revealed that she will be taking on an additional role in the beloved series' highly anticipated revival, And Just Like That....

"Roll camera! 🎥 I am thrilled to share that I am directing an episode of @JustLikeThatMax this season," Nixon wrote alongside a slideshow of photos that featured the star working on set — this time behind the camera.

She added, "It's been a complete dream to work with my beloved co-stars and crew in this new role. I have truly never felt so supported in my life. (And don't worry, Miranda is still going to be in the episode — it was surreal to do both at once!)"

A few of Nixon's costars shared their support in the comments section, with Kristin Davis writing, "And so much fun!!!"

"Ooooh yes! It's been an incredible time with you!" wrote Mario Cantone.

Davis, 56, also shared Nixon's post to her Instagram Story, where she praised her friend even more.

"Our director, @cynthiaenixon," Davis wrote. "Such a thrill to have Cyn directing us! Effortless and insightful and exciting all at once. Hopefully the first of many....🙏"

Earlier this month, HBO Max announced that the upcoming reboot series, dubbed Sex and the City's "new chapter," will premiere sometime in December. In a brief behind-the-scenes video, star Sarah Jessica Parker spoke from the set in New York City to reveal the news.
