The Sex and the City reboot trailer has dropped—and fans are already tearing up about the upcoming series. 

The first proper look at And Just Like That... has been finally been released, and, after what seemed like a never-ending wait of speculation and spoilers, we couldn't be more excited. 

Sex and the City's highly-anticipated revival will see Sarah Jessica Parker return to the small screen as Carrie Bradshaw for the first time since the series ended 2004, for ten episodes of romantic twists, friendship drama, and of course, irresistible fashion. 

While fans of the show have been getting their SATC fix with backstage photos and a very short teaser since filming commenced in spring, there's been little official word on the final edit—until now, that is.

HBO graced the Internet with the first trailer of And Just Like That on Tuesday, delighting viewers with a nearly two-minute-long clip of what's to come on the upcoming series. 

With scenes of Carrie dining al fresco with BFFs Miranda and Charlotte, toasting with hunky hubby Big, and idolizing her enviable shoe collection, the sneak peek is likely to tug on the heartstrings of the show's original audience—whilst hopefully distracting from the very fact that fan-favorite Samantha has been written out of the script

The iconic cast will also be joined up by a number of fresh faces, with Sara Ramírez, Sarita Choudhury, and Nicole Ari Parker just some of the new actors confirmed for the Sex and the City reboot

Viewers were understandably emotional to see the Sex and the City characters back in action in the trailer, but it was the appearance of one person, in particular, that's made quite the impact. Fans were quick to tear up at the cameo of Stanford sharing a kiss with his best friend Carrie, knowing well that the series marks his last ever acting role. The man behind the beloved character, Willie Garson, died aged 57, in September, after a long battle with cancer. 

"I'm gonna burst into tears the minute Stan appears," one person commented on the trailer. 

"I'm already emotional seeing "Stanny". I can't wait, been a fan for years!" another fan wrote. 

Looks like we better get the tissues out—it's going to be one rollercoaster reunion. 

You can watch And Just Like That... on 9 December on HBO Max, Sky Comedy, and NOW.
