HBO Max recently revealed that the ‘90s hit series “Sex and the City” will return to the small screen, nearly two decades after its last episode aired.
However, the fab four will be missing one key character, Samantha, played by British-born Canadian actress Kim Cattrall. Samantha was a fan favorite and may even be considered the real star of the show.
The network did not disclose why Cattrall would not be reprising her role, yet, her strained relationship with co-stars, specifically Sarah Jessica Parker, was no secret. In 2017, she told TV show host Piers Morgan that she had “never been friends” with the three other actresses.
The show, titled “And Just Like That…” –in a nod to a catchphrase of the original series—will star Parker, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis, portraying Carrie, Miranda and Charlotte, respectively.
Described by HBO Max as a “new chapter”, the 10-episode series will follow the lives of the three in their 50s.
“Sex and the City” is based on a book by Candace Bushnell of the same name. The hit show premiered in 1998 and ended in 2004, spawning a movie and a sequel.
