"Sex and the City" star Cynthia Nixon came out of the closet after the show finished its TV run. Will her character, Miranda, follow suit in the sequel series, "And Just Like That..."?

Theres fresh speculation that she will, following reports that Nixon was spotted filming scenes for the new show that take place at an LGBTQ+ rights rally, according to AceShowBiz.

"On Sunday, November 21, the 'Ratched' actress was caught filming a scene depicting an LGBTQ+ rally for the new HBO Max spin-off show in Foley Square, New York City," the site detailed. "During the scene, the 55-year-old star was seen bellowing with fellow actors as they acted out a protest scenario supporting LGBTQ+ rights."

A photo of Nixon on location for the scene was posted to Instagram.

It's possible that Miranda will remain heterosexual on the upcoming series, the site said, noting that the LGBTQ+ rally scene could depict Miranda's support for a new non-binary queer character named Che Diaz (Sara Ramirez).

However, as previously reported at EDGE, a trailer for "And Just Like That..." has inflamed fan theories about Miranda, showing the character sharing what might be a romantic dinner with Che Diaz.

There's also a moment — immediately after the words "Life is full of surprises" in the tailer's voiceover — that shows a possibly charged interaction between Miranda and another woman on a subway.

Fans have already shown their approval of the idea on social media.

Watch the trailer, below, and decide for yourself.

The series premieres on HBO Max Dec. 9.
