It was confirmed last month that Kim Cattrall would be bringing her back Sex and the city character Samantha Jones for a brief appearance And just like that… Season 2, but we hadn’t yet heard Sarah Jessica Parker’s thoughts on her former co-star’s return.
In comments published by the UK The Daily MailJessica Parker, who plays Carrie Bradshaw on Max, said Cattrall’s cameo was “nostalgic and cheerful,” though she didn’t elaborate.
“We were very careful about how we approached characters that didn’t exist, how we invited actors back, and it was, you know, really fun and exciting and definitely nostalgic. , but I think more than that, it was a lot of joy,” she said.
And just like that… premiered in 2021 and saw Parker, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis reprise their icon SATC roles as Carrie Bradshaw, Miranda Hobbes and Charlotte York respectively. Other original cast members appearing in the series include Evan Handler as Harry Goldenblatt, David Eigenberg as Steve Brady, and Mario Cantone as Anthony Marentino.
But one star absent from the revival was Cattrall, who previously said she was not interested in appearing. Cattrall and Parker have had a long-rumored feud, with a very public back-and-forth in 2018 after Parker shared his condolences over the death of Cattrall’s brother.
Even though Cattrall will appear in the second season, her cameo is said to be brief and filmed separately from the rest of the cast, meaning she had no interaction with Parker, Nixon or Davis.
As for whether we’ll ever have a proper reunion, Davis seemed to suggest not. “We thought, you know, it would be fun for the fans to have a little bit of Samantha because we know they miss her and she’s a great character,” she said. The Daily Mail.
“I don’t know if we’re even trying for closure at this point or resolution,” Davis continued. “I think we thought, here’s, you know, our missing character. And we know people miss her and Carrie. And wouldn’t it be great to have a little bit of it, you know, that’s what we wanted.”
She went on to say, “I think hope has risen, possibly more than that. And that was not our intention. So I hope people aren’t disappointed.”
