Kim Cattrall, a.k.a. Samantha Jones, may return for ‘Sex and the City’ revival


Showrunner, not yet translated into Portuguese, is an English word used to designate the professional responsible for the smooth running of TV series. That is, someone who knows things and has inside information behind the scenes. Well then.

That said, here comes the information that a lot of people were waiting for: according to Michael Patrick King, the showrunner of “And Just Like That”, the character Samantha Jones will be back in the cast in the reboot of “Sex and the City”.

Michael revealed to Variety some details of the second season of the HBO Max series, and a likely return of actress Kim Cattrall was the most surprising of them – not least because just over a month ago, she returned to complain about the direction of her character (“Samantha that exists in ‘And Just Like That’ looks very different from the one I played”), and ruled out the possibility of a revival. “I came to the conclusion that really the greatest compliment I could receive is to be missed”.

Having Kim back in the cast is even more unexpected given the history of fights and disagreements with the queen of black cocada Sarah Jessica Parker, which includes accusations of psychological abuse, moral harassment and a certain dose of arrogance on the part of Carrie Bradshaw’s interpreter.

The biggest star of the series, the movie, and the fashion world (she is Anna Wintour’s darling and was on the cover of Vogue America last December), Parker used to deny any disagreement between the two, but he admitted days ago to the Hollywood Reporter that the raids are not come from today.

The most shocking episode of the fight between the blondes happened in 2018, when Cattrall’s brother, then 55, was missing for days until he was found dead. Sarah took to Instagram to pay her condolences to her then-co-star. The answer came next.

“I don’t need your love or support at this tragic time. My mom asked me when will Sarah Jessica Parker, that hypocrite, leave me alone? Let me be very clear, you’re not my family and you’re not my friend, so I I’m writing to tell you one last time: stop exploiting our tragedy to restore your ‘cool’ persona,” Kim wrote, tagging Sarah.

It is in this climate with a few years of history that the showrunner of “And Just Like That” (whom Kim has also fought a few times, by the way) announces: she should return to the cast in person – Samantha appeared only in text messages exchanged with Carrie on first season. “My goal is to bring all the characters together,” she stated, right after an effusive “Yes!”, when asked objectively about the actress’ return.

There is no word yet on when filming will begin for the second season of the series. The sequel was announced last March, and the casting of Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis, the other actresses who made up the quartet of friends (in fiction), is confirmed.
