Sex and the Pity? We think not.

HBO has released the first image of its upcoming series Divorce, which features Sarah Jessica Parker stomping her Louboutins on familiar ground.

Though Parker’s newly single character Frances doesn’t exactly look thrilled to be facing what a previous HBO description called “a clean break and a fresh start [that] is harder than she thought,” she’s at least doing so with style. With a cozy coat and a dress featuring an illuminated urban skyline, Frances is ready to take on the world – or at least New York City.

Speaking to PEOPLE, Parker, 50, said Frances’ look is “not playing a real role in her life right now. Like when she wakes up in the morning, there are so many other things that are paramount in her mind. Number one is probably her children and the state of their welfare, and number two the state of her marriage and how she is going to cope with a really challenging new chapter in her life.”
