Get reacquainted with Carrie, Miranda, Charlotte and Samantha, as Sex and the City is now streaming on Netflix.

Following its initial run on HBO from 1998 to 2004 and two sequel movies, the series has had a cultural resurgence with Max's sequel series And Just Like That…, which follows Carrie, Miranda and Charlotte as they navigate love, life, and friendship in their 50s.

If you're a huge fan, you've probably seen the original series so many times you can recite every one of Carrie's narrations word for word.

While there's no shame in rewatching all six seasons over again, there are plenty of other shows available to stream that might be of interest to you once you've finished catching up over cosmos with the original foursome.

If you can't get enough of the N.Y.C. drama on SATC, Gossip Girl is right up your alley. Or if your favorite part of SATC is the female friendships, there's a good chance you'll enjoy The Bold Type.
