“Sex and the City” Author Candace Bushnell Criticizes “And Just Like That”
In an interview with The New Yorker, Candace Bushnell, author of “Sex and the City,” criticized the continuation of the famous series “And just like that “.
The new episode aired last December to mixed reviews.
Not all fans of the cult series were ready to accept how the famous friends from New York have changed.
Bushnell noted that she was surprised by many of the decisions the creators of the project made in the sequel.
“…I’m really startled by a lot of the decisions made in the reboot. You know, it’s a television product, done with Michael Patrick King and Sarah Jessica Parker, who have both worked with HBO a lot in the past. HBO decided to put this franchise back into their hands for a variety of reasons, and this is what they came up with.”
According to the writer, who was involved in developing the original series “Sex and the City,” “And just like that …” does not see herself as it was before. After all, according to Bushnell, Carrie was her prototype.
“…Carrie Bradshaw ended up being a quirky woman who married a really rich guy. And that’s not my story or any of my friends’ stories. But TV has its own logic.”
