Sex And The City Creator Confirms What We Suspected All Along About Kim Cattrall

“Sex and the City” and “And Just Like That” creator Michael Patrick King has revealed there was never any intention of Kim Cattrall being in the reboot. Despite speculation about whether she’d reprise Samantha Jones, he admitted it was “never, ever intended” because she decided she would not play the character again “many, many years ago” (via Us Weekly). Womp womp.

He shared he’s still very fond of Cattrall and the character though, so didn’t want to kill Samantha off, but also shared what fans had been suspecting in that Cattrall’s apparent feud with Sarah Jessica Parker was sort of written into the show. “I wanted to reflect the reality of the fact that there was one not joining,” he shared, noting, “life goes on when friendships break up over incidental things that become bigger things.” He then added that “all the writers had a significant friend that they can’t believe they’re still friends with. That seemed like truth, so we reflected that,” and shared the fictional feud came from “confused wires about, like, personal vs. professional [life].”

In “And Just Like That,” it’s confirmed Samantha moved to London, England, for work, though Parker’s Carrie Bradshaw admitted she felt responsible because they fell out. “I understand that she was upset, but I thought I was more to her than an ATM. I always thought the four of us would be friends forever,” she said (via Digital Spy).
