Sarah Jessica Parker Is Back At HBO, But Don't Expect 'SATC'

Get Carrie'd away. Do it! Do it!

Sarah Jessica Parker is officially returning to HBO for "Divorce," a new half-hour comedy.

It's been more than 10 years since her other super-successful half-hour HBO comedy, "Sex and the City," ended its run — that was 2004. So, SJP, 30 minutes, HBO and one more indicator of success: girlfriends! 

Parker's character will have two gal pals played by Molly Shannon and Talia Balsam. Thomas Haden Church will play the husband. 

But ... dare I say ... I couldn't help but wonder: Will we get our hopes up too high for "Divorce"? It's hard to catch lightning in a bottle twice. 

Stars who saw major TV hits in the '90s and 2000s have struggled to recreate the same small-screen magic — thinking of Matthew Perry and Lisa Kudrow here, among others. (Videos via NBC / "Go On," HBO / "The Comeback")

Then again, SJP's career has been pretty quiet post "SATC" — maybe she's been waiting for the right project. (Video via Sony Pictures Entertainment / "Did You Hear About the Morgans?")

Deadline notes many networks have "actively pursued" her over the years for other TV projects, but she never signed on.

But, you know. It's not TV. It's HBO.
