Kim Cattrall's Samantha Jones Will Not Appear.
Curious what will happen to our favourite PR agent? HBO has confirmed that Jones and the trio will simply just grow apart.
Speaking to TVLine, HBO’s Casey Bloys revealed that the removal of Samantha’s character will be due to the group drifting apart, as friends do, saying: “Just as in real life, people come into your life, people leave.”
“Friendships fade, and new friendships start," Bloys continued. "So I think it is all very indicative of the real stages, the actual stages of life… They’re trying to tell an honest story about being a woman in her 50s in New York. So it should all feel somewhat organic, and the friends that you have when you’re 30, you may not have when you’re 50.”
The Original Creative Team Will Return.
The new series, titled And Just Like That..., is being executive produced by Michael Patrick King, who also worked on the original series and will consist of ten half-hour episodes and is set to begin production in New York City later this year.
“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, humour and the beloved city that has always defined them,” Sarah Aubrey, Head of Original Content, HBO Max, said in a statement.
COVID-19 Will Feature In The Plot.
In a recent interview with Vanity Fair, Sarah Jessica Parker revealed that the reboot will not only cover the coronavirus pandemic, but its storyline will reflect present-day and the current affairs that are relevant as of now.
"[COVID-19 will] obviously be part of the storyline, because that's the city [these characters] live in," Parker told Vanity Fair. "And how has that changed relationships once friends disappear? I have great faith that the writers are going to examine it all."
Continuing, Parker ensured that the And Just Like That... writers are set to bring new "life experience, political world views, and social world views" to the storyline.
Chris Noth And David Eigenberg, AKA Mr Big And Steve Brady, Will Not Reprise Their Roles.
According to a Page Six report in February 2021, Chris Noth will not be returning to the revival to reprise his iconic role as Mr Big, the longtime boyfriend and husband of Carrie Bradshaw.
The outlet also reported David Eigenberg, who played the longtime partner of Cynthia Nixon's Miranda, also won't be returning.
At the moment these are just reports, and no official word from HBO Max has confirmed whether the two characters will or will not return.
Stay tuned for more information on the upcoming revival!
