The new ten-part series is made by HBO Max and is called And Just Like That after Carrie Bradshaw’s trademark narration of the original show.
And Just Like That already has its own Instagram account, which has already clocked up 103k followers.
“So happy to be home again,” Sarah Jessica Parker commented on the Instagram video.
It has already been confirmed that Sarah Jessica Parker, Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon will return to their roles as Carrie Bradshaw, Charlotte York and Miranda Hobbes, though Kim Cattrall will not back as Samantha Jones.
Kim Cattrall’s role of Samantha Jones is unlikely to have been recast, although the actress has said she would have given a new actor her blessing in the past.
Kim previously suggested that "another actress should play it — maybe they could make it an African-American Samantha Jones or a Hispanic Samantha Jones".

HBO bosses have insisted that Samantha Jones has not been erased from the series. Rather her absence reflects the realities of how friendships evolve as we get older.
Sarah Jessica Parker has explained that Samantha "isn't part" of this story, adding: "But she will always be part of us. No matter where we are or what we do."
It’s not yet known if supporting stars such as Chris Noth will return as Mr Big and David Eigenberg recently said he “didn’t know” if his character of Steve was being reprised.
It’s expected that supporting characters such as Evan Handler as Charlotte’s husband Harry and Willie Garson as Carrie’s BFF Stanford Blatch will be back though this is yet to be confirmed.
However, the show has promised new characters and a more diverse cast this time around.
Bosses on the 10-part series have responded by vowing to make the show "as racially diverse and colourful as New York city itself".
A source close to the production told The Mail on Sunday: "Samantha isn’t coming back, but we are introducing two new characters, strong and feisty women of colour, who will help introduce the show to a new generation of viewers and more accurately reflect the world we live in."
Sex and the City creator Darren Star has handed over the reins to Michael Patrick King and Sarah Jessica Parker to produce the ten-part series.
Sarah Aubrey, head of original content at HBO Max, said in a statement: "I grew up with these characters, and I can't wait to see how their story has evolved in this new chapter, with the honesty, poignancy, humour and the beloved city that has always defined them."
And Just Like That is expected to begin production in New York City in late spring.
