Just days after fans were treated to a glimpse of Sarah Jessica Parker reprising her Sex And The City role, the actress' Manhattan sidekicks are back to work too.
Strutting her stuff in a chic LBD and electric-blue killer heels, Liverpool-born actress Kim Cattrall defied her 53 years as she shot scenes for the eagerly-anticipated movie.
The star, who recently split from her toyboy love Alan Wyse, was the first to confirm a sequel was on the cards, and has also revealed that Samantha will making the most of her single status.
"Samantha single is more fun than you can ever imagine," she says.
One of the hunky males she'll encounter is Croatian model Filip Kleva who recently revealed he's been cast as Samantha's new lover.
"I'll love the role as Samantha has been my favourite character in Sex And The City. I'm very excited about it," he says.
The SATC sequel isn't due out in cinemas until next spring, but New York is already abuzz.
As Kim and co-star Cynthia Nixon - who has dyed her blonde locks back to red especially for the part - began filming this week, they sent fans into such a frenzy that the actresses were forced to head back to their trailers.
Heavy security has now been enforced to keep crowds from gathering around the set.
Out in May 2010, the new film will be "very different" from the first movie, says Kristin Davis, who plays Park Avenue princess, Charlotte.
