Kim Cattrall to return as Samantha in Sex and the City reboot

Kim Cattrall is to reprise her role as Samantha Jones for the Sex and the City reboot. The 66-year-old actress did not appear in the first season of And Just Like That.

But producers have now confirmed she will be making a cameo appearance in the forthcoming series. According to Variety she shot her scenes and dialogue without speaking to the other cast members.

The scene is said to depict Jones, who has moved to London, having a phone call with Sarah Jessica Parker’s Carrie Bradshaw. The first series saw the two characters interacting via text and even arranging to meet.

Variety also claims costume designer Patricia Field, who also did not work on And Just Like That, dressed the shots involving Samantha. Field missed the first series working on Netflix’s Emily in Paris.

In 2016, Cattrall publicly said she was finished playing publicist Samantha. Reports at the time suggested she did not like the script for the third film.

“I would have preferred for all of us to have some kind of event to warrant a third film,” Cattrall told Variety in 2022. “That didn’t happen.”

The website says it led to a falling out between Parker and Cattrall. And, when the franchise was rebooted, other characters were added into the mix to replace Samantha.

The second series of And Just Like That premieres on June 22, although Cattrall is not meant to appear in the series until August.
