Netflix sets date for HBO’s ‘Sex And The City’, cancels ‘The Brother’s Sun’

Netflix has set a date for its US premiere of HBO’s Sex And The City, while also cancelling The Brother’s Sun after just one season.

The streamer will make Sex And The City available to Netflix subscribers in the US from 1 April, following a deal with Warner Bros. Discovery.

Netflix picked up rights to the HBO hit earlier this year in a deal that reflected the rising appetite of US studios to sell their most acclaimed library shows to the streamer.

Netflix had acquired shows including Ballers and The Pacific from HBO owner Warner Bros. Discovery (WBD) last year.

However, the deal for Sex And The City differed as it remains a live franchise with its spin-off, And Just Like That, entering into a third season on WBD streamer Max, which will continue to offer access to the original show.

In related news, Netflix has axed The Brother’s Sun – which tracked a man who returns to LA to protect a powerful Taiwanese crime family after the patriarch dies – after one season.

It starred Michelle Yeah and was created by Brad Falchuk and Byron Wu.
