Kristin Davis was back in character as Charlotte York as she filmed And Just Like That season three with co-star Alexa Swinton.

The Melrose Place alum, 59 — who recently revealed the Sex and the City spin-off’s cameras were rolling — took to her Instagram on Wednesday to share snaps from the Max set. 

Dressed in a chic white, button-down shirt dress, the star looked incredible as she hit the Big Apple pavement alongside Alexa, who plays Charlotte’s nonbinary teen Rock.

The two actresses beamed with megawatt smiles, nearly upstaged by the show’s charming pooch named Richard Burton.

Back in March, the actress shared a montage of behind-the-scenes moments from the show, captioning them, ‘It’s almost that time again… can’t wait to be reunited with my AJLT family.’

The Sex and The City spin-off – which also stars Sarah Jessica Parker as Carrie Bradshaw and Cynthia Nixon as Miranda Hobbes – will return in 2025 after WGA and SAG/AFTRA strikes delayed work on new scripts.

The show was renewed back in August  at HBO’s streaming service Max, just days before the much-anticipated return of Kim Cattrall’s iconic Sex and the City character Samantha Jones. 

In a statement, Max’s Head of Original Content Sarah Aubrey, said: ‘As we approach the highly anticipated season finale on Thursday, we raise our cosmos to [showrunner] Michael Patrick King and his magnificent team of writers, producers, cast and crew who continue to charm us, 25 years later, with dynamic friendships and engaging stories.’

Aubrey added: ‘We cannot wait for audiences to see where season three will take our favorite New Yorkers.’

Showrunner Michael Patrick King said: ‘We are thrilled to spend more time in the Sex and the City universe telling new stories about the lives of these relatable and aspirational characters played by these amazing actors.’

The renewal came a few weeks before Karen Pittman, who played Professor Nya Wallace on the Sex and the City spin-off, revealed she was walking away after two seasons, citing ‘scheduling conflicts’.

‘It has been a joy to have Karen Pittman play the smart and stunning Professor Nya Wallace on the first two seasons of And Just Like That,’ a Max spokesperson told Deadline.

‘As we have thoroughly enjoyed working with this dynamic actress, so too have others. Due to her commitments to two other streamer series, it has become apparent that filming three shows at once isn’t possible,’ they continued. 

The statement concluded, ‘Due to the production realities, we are disappointed to announce that scheduling conflicts will not allow us to continue with this character as part of season 3 of And Just Like That.’ 

‘Karen and Nya will be missed, and her Max family and fans will all be cheering her on in her other endeavors.’ 

Nya isn’t the only new character to depart before season three, with Che Diaz (played by Sara Ramirez) also leaving.

Ramirez, 48, a non-binary actor who uses they/them pronouns, implied they will not return for the third season of the Sex and the City spin-off in a series of posts shared to Instagram in January.

They heavily suggested their time on the show was over as they claimed ‘casting directors and agents are making black lists of actors and workers who post anything in support of Palestinians and Gaza to ensure they will not work again.’

But a source close to the show ridiculed the suggestion, claiming Ramirez’s head had been ‘on the chopping block since last season’ because their character ‘held no value anymore’ and was ‘annoying.’ 

Devotees of the original Sex and the City have found themselves entangled in a love-hate dynamic with the new revival, which notably lacks the presence of Cattrall’s sex-positive PR maven, Samantha Jones.
