Sex and the City is one of the 2000’s most iconic shows and over a decade later fans still buzz about the drama, style and relatable characters. Whether it’s Carrie’s bold fashion sense or Charlotte’s chipper personality or Samantha’s risque ways that kept you watching, the charm of the show definitely left it’s mark on pop culture. Luckily, a select few current television series have followed in the successful girl-empowering path of Sex and the City and re-invented the same themes of the show with an innovative and fresh take. If you loved Sex and the City, you’re sure to love the following seven shows that remind us of the classic television drama from the 2000s:

7. The Mindy Project

The lead character Mindy in The Mindy Project lives a similar life to the ladies of Sex and the City — she’s a young, talented woman navigating the New York dating scene and balancing a career. She tries to find herself along the way, always in the most hilarious way possible, and 5 seasons later we watched her grow from a newbie New Yorker to a confident mother. To add even more to the appeal, Mindy has an enviable wardrobe that would even make Carrie Bradshaw turn her head.

6. Being Mary Jane

The Netflix show Being Mary Jane focuses on a young, strong woman uplifting her life to move to the big city and pursue her dreams of becoming a reporter. The leading lady is played by Gabrielle Union who absolutely kills her role. She is successful in her career, has a closet full of designer clothes, a luxury home and car and the determination to make her life even more amazing. In the midst of all the career success, Mary Jane finds herself struggling to start a family and to solidify a partner. She undergoes many of the “single girl in a big city” trials and tribulations that Carrie and the gang go through which makes for seriously relatable entertainment.
