HBO to kick off final seasons of ‘Sex and the City’ on 14 May

MUMBAI: HBO will air the final two seasons of its show Sex And The City from 14 May. Two episodes will air every Sunday after the 8 pm movie.

HBO says that Sex And The City has spawned into a pop-culture phenomenon, amassing fans the world over with its candid yet honest take on the issues women face. The last two seasons won three Emmy Awards and 24 Emmy nominations and two Golden Globe awards and 10 Golden Globe nominations.

The show’s four heroines represent a contrasting mix of archetypes. For the uninitiated, there’s columnist Carrie Bradshaw, who is in search of “butterflies-in-the-stomach” true love; Miranda Hobbes, a single mother who is trying to juggle the pressures of work, motherhood and dating; Charlotte York who comes to realize that her world need not be so perfect and Samantha Jones, a public relations executive who lives life on her own terms without regrets.

By focussing on issues women face, from the good to the bad, the ugly and the fun, the fifth and the sixth season of the show sees Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda – return: older and wiser, but no less hopeful.

Carrie played by Sarah Jessica Parker finds success in her professional life when she publishes a new book. Later in the season, Carrie meets a new love interest in the form of Jack Berger– but will she be lucky in love?

We see the 'softer' side of Samantha played by Kim Cattrall as she discovers that she too, is capable of not only loving someone but also being in a monogamous relationship. That is until, her boyfriend’s roving eyes prove too much of a handful for even a tough cookie like Samantha.

The usually acerbic-tongued and fiercely independent Miranda (Cynthia Nixon) turns vulnerable following the birth of Baby Brady as she learns to cope with motherhood while Charlotte (Kristin Davis) realizes that the “perfect man” can come in a less-than-perfect package, in the form of her divorce attorney.

HBO Asia country manager Shruti Bajpai says, “HBO’s Sex And The City has proven itself to be a phenomenon in television entertainment, which is exemplified by the laurels it has won as well as the overwhelming response that the past seasons have received from its patron viewers in India. With Season 5 and 6, HBO’s Sex And the City is all set, once again, to touch the hearts of women and men alike with its engaging storyline and relatable content.“

In this final season of HBO’s Sex And The City, the ladies come full circle, with each of them experiencing the panacea of friendships, the pain of heartbreaks and the pleasures of relationships.
