The countdown to Sarah Jessica Parker’s HBO return has begun!

The premium cable network has set a sort-of premiere date for the 50-year-old actress’ new, New York City-set comedy, Divorce: fall 2016.

To tide everyone over, HBO released two new photos from the half-hour series on Thursday, with the former Sex and the City star is giving us some serious Carrie Bradshaw 2.0 vibes.

Parker stars as Frances, a woman who begins to reassess her life and marriage. Unfortunately, the New Yorker quickly realizes that finding a fresh start will be harder than she thought.

Last April, Parker -- who also serves as an executive producer on Divorce -- sat down with ET’s Melissa Rivers to talk about returning to television and her anticipated new project.

“It was an area of particular interest for me because I’m married, and I love being married, and I’m happily married,” said Parker, who has been married to actor Matthew Broderick since 1997. The couple has three children together.

"I think marriage is wonderfully complicated and wonderfully interesting, and everybody conducts their marriage differently," she continued. "We know almost nothing about people's marriage, because even those who we're most intimate with in friendships, we don't always share the good or the bad. And I just think that at a certain point, some people feel alone and lost."

Parker explained that since marriage and divorce mean different things to different people, she's interested in creating "a portrait of divorce."

"I think we're at an age where a lot of people have experienced it, or are about to, or want to, or secretly wish they could, or [are] so grateful that their marriage isn't at that state," Parker said. "And so I love the idea of telling that story."

Divorce also stars Thomas Haden Church, Molly Shannon, Talia Balsam and Tracy Letts.

Other original HBO programs getting a fall debut include the star-studded sci-fi drama, Westworld, as well as half-hour comedies, Insecure and High Maintenance.
