That doesn’t mean you’re being punished.” ALSO: Mr. Big would've been killed off in Sex and the City 3.

Jennifer Keishin Armstrong, author of the new book Sex and the City and Us: How Four Single Women Changed the Way We Think, Live, and Love, says: "I read someone saying that if you made Sex and the City now, Miranda would be the main character, because we’ve evolved in our thinking about women on television enough that that’s what we all aspire to. Nobody wants to be Carrie anymore; everyone recognizes that Carrie has some major character flaws."

Sex and the City would not be Sex and the City if it premiered today, says creator Darren Star
In honor of Sex and the City launching 20 years ago today, on June 6, 1998, Star was asked how he'd redo the show if it premiered in 2018. "There would probably be a gay character and it would probably be more diverse, but at the same time, this is what that show was about," he says. "It was about those four women, and I think Sex and the City can only be conceived in the context of the time that it was done, and any show that is done now would not be Sex and the City; it would be something else because it’s 20 years later. I think its an apples and oranges type of question. Sex and the City would obviously be a completely different show today, in terms of how it would be conceived from the very beginning. You might even have a gender-fluid character on the show. From the ground up, we would just be thinking of it differently 20 years later."

Tuesday's Season 5 premiere focuses on sexual harassment in the workplace by an author modeled on Game of Thrones' George R.R. Martin. “One of the greatest gifts that the show has had is the time,” says Foster. “That’s what Darren Star is so phenomenal about. He just has his finger on the pulse of culture and what’s going on. To be on a show that’s so female forward and then tackle the #MeToo movement has been so gratifying.” Foster adds: "I remember some of the early things that were written about the show were like, ‘Oh this crazy premise! Maybe some of the things we’re doing now that are based in reality would have been crazy five years ago.”
