Sex and the City is an American romantic comedy-drama television series and is an adaptation of Candace Bushnell’s 1997 book of the same name. The series lets us eavesdrop as four female New Yorkers gossip about their sex lives (or lack thereof) and find new ways to deal with being a woman in the 1990s.

Why you should watch it: Like we need an excuse to watch Carrie and the gals living their best lives? This June the series will be 22 years old, but we’ll never tire of this classic rom-com drama series. The lockdown saw a jump in views to Sex And The City and we’re not surprised whether it’s first time viewers feverishly catching up on one of life’s must-see series or SATC fans getting their second or third fix – everybody could do with a dose of Carrie Samantha, Miranda and Charlotte. Which one are you?
