Say What? Kim Cattrall Will Return in ‘Sex and the City’ Revival

Oh, honey! Samantha Jones is back!

Rumor is that Kim Cattrall will reprise her role as Samantha Jones in the next season of And Just Like That, streaming on Max. Fans had mixed reviews for the revival series of HBO’s Sex and the City after it premiered on the streaming service in 2021. Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon, and Kristin Davis returned to reprise their roles as Carrie Bradshaw, Charlotte York, and Miranda Hobbes. However, the fourth member of their iconic group, Samantha, did not return to the Big Apple. Cattrall’s character instead moved to London for work.

The only time Samantha interacted with the trio in season one was during an exchange of text messages between her and Carrie. Still, the finale suggested we may see more of the beloved, promiscuous queen in future seasons.

Series creator Michael Patrick King previously told Variety that Samantha would be a part of season two but was hesitant to say much more than that. “It’s all so new right now,” he said. “One of my big rules is, don’t tell things until they’re real.”

Everything We Know About Kim Cattrall’s Appearance

They are officially real! According to reports, Cattrall will make a cameo in the season and speak to Parker’s Carrie on the phone. The actress filmed her scene in March in New York City “without seeing or speaking with the stars of the series.” She did not even interact with creator King, but she did bring Sex and the City designer Patricia Field back to dress her for the scene.

Cattrall has not been quiet about her disinterest in reprising her role as Samantha, so we are shocked to see her slip back into her old pumps.

“I was never asked to be part of the reboot. I made my feelings clear after the possible third movie,” she told Variety. “So I found out about it like everyone else did — on social media.”

Nevertheless, fans of the franchise can tune in to see Cattrall reunite (kinda) with the cast when the second season of And Just Like That premieres on June 22.
