Since the announcement of the ‘Sex and the City’ revival, titled ‘And Just Like That’, fans have wondered why Samantha Jones (Kim Cattrall) character will not appear on the special. .
It turns out that Cattrall said in mid-2017 that she had never been friends with her co-stars and that relationships on set were toxic, according to Just Jared.
At the time, it was said that Cattrall was the reason a third movie never materialized.
As early as 2018, Kim’s brother passed away suddenly and Sarah Jessica Parker commented on Kim’s Instagram post, expressing her feelings.
The comment seemed to have mended the broken relationship. However, Kim attacked Parker, accusing him of “exploiting” his family’s tragedy.
After Parker’s comment, Cattrall responded:
“So I am writing to tell you one last time to stop exploiting our tragedy in order to restore your ‘good girl’ personality.”
Since then, the atmosphere between the two has grown heavy, but Parker says he’s got nothing against her and several of the cast have already come out on Parker’s defense.
Chris Noth, who has worked with the actresses on the show, recently spoke to The Guardian about the controversy.
“I have to tell you, I have absolutely no idea what she [Kim] think or what are your emotions. I know I am very close to Sarah and the descriptions [de Cattrall] it doesn’t even come close. I liked her, thought she was wonderful on the show and some people leave for their own reasons. I don’t know what his were. I just wish it had never happened because it was sad and uncomfortable.
“I just don’t like seeing someone say bad things about Sarah because she’s a target and people can be mean. I feel very protective of her and I was not happy about it. That’s all I’ll say about it.
Despite everything, Sarah Jessica Parker lamented the absence of the colleague from the renewal of her Instagram profile.
“We’ll have 10 more episodes of ‘Sex and the City,’ but Samantha Jones will be gone. Even so, she will always be with us, ”the actress said in response to a fan.
Previously, Casey Bloys, director of content at HBO Max, had been asked about it and attempted to turn the situation around with an evasive response.
“Just like in real life, there are people who come in and go out of our lives. Some come back, some don’t. Old friendships disappear and new friendships emerge, this is the cycle of life.
“We’re trying to tell an honest story about being a woman in her 50s in New York City. So everything should feel natural, because the friends you have at 30 may not be there at 50. “

Michael Patrick King, writer, director and executive producer of “Sex and the City” returns in the same role as producer.
“The series follows Carrie, Miranda and Charlotte as they navigate the complicated journey of life and their friendship from their thirties to an even more complicated phase in their fifties.”
Rumors suggest that the new episodes will have a more race-conscious and political plot, while remaining a bit more connected to the real world.
Created by Darren Star (now in front of “Emily in Paris”), the original series had six seasons, which aired between 1998 and 2004 on HBO.
