CelebnMovies247.com got word that only three of the fab four are returning for the new TV series – Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis..
Kim Cattrall, who played the popular character, Samantha, will not be featured in the new Sex and the City.
The new series will consist of 10 half-hour episodes. Production will begin in late spring.
The trailer for the HBO Max show gives nothing away; It features numerous shots of New York, but none of the characters is seen on screen.
Sarah Aubrey, head of original content at HBO Max, said in a statement:
I grew up with these characters, and I can’t wait to see how their story has evolved in this new chapter, with the honesty, poignancy, humor and the beloved city that has always defined them.
Why Kim Cattrall will NOT be Part of Sex and The City: The Next Chapter
As for Kim Cattrall, she has had a strained relationship with the show in recent years, and in particular with her former co-star Parker.
Many SATC fans will be disappointed that larger-than-life favorite Samantha Jones – played by Kim Cattrall – will not be returning for the sequel series.
Though, Samantha was Sex and the City’s most outlandish character and arguably, the star of the show.
Cattrall won’t reprise the role in And Just Like That comes as no surprise after years of feud rumors which were later confirmed by the British-born Canadian actress.
In 2017, Cattrall told Piers Morgan she had “never been friends” with her co-stars.
She said there was a “toxic relationship” and ruled out appearing in a third Sex and the City movie, denying that her decision was down to pay or “diva” demands.
Sarah Jessica Parker was forced to announce that the third film would NOT be happening since she and Kim could NOT come to an agreement. What was so interesting is that Cynthia Nixon after x amount of years decided to weigh in on the lack of diversity. It was about 4 upscale white women? Give us a break Cynthia. Look at the content given and remember it was taken from a book?
The original Sex and the City series, created by Darren Star, was based on Candace Bushnell’s 1997 book of the same name. It premiered on HBO in 1998 and ran for six seasons until 2004.
The show inspired two films, Sex and the City in 2008 and Sex and the City 2 in 2010. A prequel series titled The Carrie Diaries, starring Anna Sophia Robb, aired on The CW in 2013/14.
