Sex and the City to ‘return’ for ‘reboot’ with original stars ‘except’ Kim Cattrall after Sarah Jessica Parker ‘feud’
SEX and the City will “return” for a “reboot” with the original stars “except” for Kim Cattrall.
The 64-year-old will not return for the new show after her public “feud” with co-star Sarah Jessica Parker.
An industry insider revealed to Page Six that the fan favorite show will likely air on HBO Max in the form of a limited series.
The insider added that Kim- who starred as Samantha Jones- would not return for the reboot.
The original series, which ran on HBO from 1998-2004, also starred Sarah Jessica as Carrie Bradshaw, Cynthia Nixon as Miranda Hobbes and Kristin Davis as Charlotte York.
The possibility of a reboot isn’t far fetched, as Sarah Jessica previously told Entertainment Tonight that she was interested in doing “some episodes of Sex and the City,” though would call it a “revisit” instead of a “reboot.”
In addition to the original series, two Sex and the City movies came out in 2008 and 2010.
Kim’s absence also isn’t a surprise, as she’s been in a public feud with the actress behind Carrie for years.
Back in 2018, Sarah Jessica told Watch What Happens Live host Andy Cohen that she was “heartbroken” after Kim said never friends with her co-stars.
The 55-year-old explained: ” I found it very upsetting because that’s not the way I recall our experience.
“It’s sad, but I always think that what ties us together was this singular experience. It was a professional experience but it became personal because it was years and years of our lives, so I hope that that eclipses anything that’s been recently spoken.”
She concluded: “That many years spent doing something so special that people had a connection with it is such a privilege.”
Then in 2019, Kim shut down any possibility of her reprising the role of Samantha ever again.
During an interview with The Observer, she said: “I went past the finish line playing Samantha Jones because I loved Sex and the City. It was a blessing in so many ways but after the second movie I’d had enough.
“I couldn’t understand why they wouldn’t just replace me with another actress instead of wasting time bullying. No means no.”

Most of the original HBO series followed Carrie on her journey to finding a lasting love, though maybe the reboot can focus on the women finding a new friend to fill Samantha’s shoes.
After all, Carrie once said: “I’m looking for love. Real love. Ridiculous, inconvenient, consuming, can’t-live-without-each-other love.”
Perhaps Carrie, Miranda and Charlotte can live without Samantha.
