An HBO Exec Revealed The Shady Way The "SATC" Reboot Will Explain Samantha's Absence And It Kinda Reflects The Cast's Real-Life Feud
"People come into your life, and people leave."
I'm sure by now you've heard the news that Sex and the City will be returning to our screens in a brand-new reboot of the iconic show.
Three of the franchise's original stars, Sarah Jessica Parker, Kristin Davis, and Cynthia Nixon, announced the news of a reboot on Instagram last month.
The announcement went on to reveal that the show, titled And Just Like That, will follow the group navigating life and friendship in their fifties.
However, there was one member of the group missing from the announcement: Kim Cattrall, who of course played Samantha.
The news didn't come as a huge surprise considering Kim has been vocal about not wanting to participate in any future movies or series related to the franchise.
Back in 2017, Kim was even accused of being the reason that a third SATC movie was canceled just days before shooting commenced. While she vehemently denied the reports, her former costars stoked the rumors on social media.
Just a year later, Kim publicly blasted Sarah Jessica Parker, describing her as "cruel" after she spoke out about the death of her brother.
After Sarah Jessica expressed her condolences during a TV interview, Kim hopped onto Instagram and shared a post describing her as "cruel" and a "hypocrite."
"You are not my friend," Kim wrote. "So I'm writing to tell you one last time to stop exploiting our tragedy in order to restore your 'nice girl' persona."
