The latest Sex and the City teaser reboot and just like that…shows Cynthia Nixon’s Miranda Hobbs character struggling to raise her teenage son Brady.
In a now-deleted sneak peek, Miranda is forced to grapple with the harsh realities of the motherhood of a hormonal, sexually active teen and experiment with marijuana.
“She stepped on a used condom in Brady’s room this morning,” Miranda told her fellow family members Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker) and Charlotte (Kristen Davis) over lunch.

The nearly 30-second clip circulating on social media begins with Miranda sitting at what appears to be a school function only to turn around and see her son go out furiously with a girl.
She remembers what her day-to-day life looked like for her friends over lunch. She remembers walking into Brady’s room to find a used condom on the floor, which made a cautious Charlotte scream “Ooooo.”
“Wait… I was barefoot at the time,” Nixon’s character continues adding to the double panting and another “eww” of Davis’ character.

Rebellion phase: Apparently going through a rebellion phase above raging hormones, Brady is also experimenting with marijuana.
The video then goes to Miranda’s voiceover saying “I can’t always be the bad guy,” while he catches Brady (performed by actor Niall Cunningham) smoking marijuana.
Arriving in the hallway in what appears to be her office, she finds her high school son – who she shares with former love interest Steve (played by David Egenberg) lighting a bowl with a friend inside.
To make her life more challenging, Miranda is not only trying to raise her hormonal teen, but she’s also going back to school at Columbia University.
Plus, fans speculated based on the show’s trailer that Nixon’s character might have an odd plot line this season as she looks to get closer to her professor.

Disgusted: Davis’s character (cautious by nature) Charlotte reacts “eww” upon hearing Miranda’s discovery, which is exacerbated by the fact that she was barefoot
NEW BALL GAME: The reboot follows friends (with the exception of Samantha Jones from Kim Cattrall) as they navigate life in their fifties.
The beloved HBO show will premiere December 9 on HBO Max and features the same cast of characters except for Kim Cattrall’s Samantha Jones.
Chris North is set to return as Mr. Page with the late Willie Garson as Carrey’s best friend Stanford Blatch and Egenberg as Brady’s father Steve.
Filming was underway when Garson tragically died of pancreatic cancer in September, but the show had already been drawn into several scenes showing him at the time.

She was caught red-handed: She went down the hallway in what appeared to be her office, and found her high school son (played by actor Niall Cunningham) lighting a bowl with a friend inside.
And Just Like That… Presenter Michael Patrick King revealed that despite Samantha and Stanford’s absence, they made the decision not to kill any characters on the show.
No one died,” King told the New York Times. He said of Garson’s death “because he wasn’t a wizard”. “And I knew the public would know.”
In addition to crowd-favorite players, new faces in the reboot include Sarah Ramirez, Sarita Choudhury, Nicole Ari Parker, and Karen Bateman.
