When And just like that… was announced in January, it was confirmed that Sarah Jessica Parker, Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon will reprise their characters as Carrie Bradshaw, Charlotte York Goldenblatt and Miranda Hobbes respectively. Original series executive producer Michael Patrick King will also return with SATCof the next chapter.
Notably MIA? Kim Cattrall, who played the fourth member of their quartet, the fan-favorite Samantha Jones. Given that Cattrall has a famous feud with Parker and rules out a return for a potential third installment, it’s not too surprising to see her sideline from the series, but it does leave fans wondering if Samantha be replaced or not.
“Samantha is not part of this story,” Parker confirmed on Instagram. “But she will always be a part of us. No matter where we are or what we do.”
And that wasn’t the last time she weighed in on the subject.
Parker told a cameraman in January, when asked if the search for a fourth actor for the new series had begun.
She added, “We have New York City as a fourth character. There will be a lot of exciting new characters that we’re excited about.”
