  • "And Just Like That" will star Parker, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis 

“Sex and the City” fans were delighted when news broke that the show is getting a revival at HBO Max, but many were left wondering why Kim Cattrall isn’t joining fellow original cast members Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis.

The “Sex and the City” reboot, titled “And Just Like That,” will bring back Parker as Carrie Bradshaw, Nixon as Miranda Hobbes and Davis as Charlotte York Goldenblatt. The trio teased the upcoming HBO Max show on their social media accounts, but Cattrall, who played Samantha Jones in the series, kept mum.

"Happy to see you back but will miss Kim/Samantha," one fan commented on Parker's Instagram post, which garnered a reply from the actress, saying, “We will too. We loved her so. X."

One commenter pointed out that Parker didn’t tag Cattrall, to which another Instagram user replied that it was because “they dislike each other.” However, the 55-year-old set the record straight regarding the misunderstanding.

“No. I don't dislike her. I've never said that. Never would. Samantha isn't part of this story. But she will always be part of us. No matter where we are or what we do. X," Parker wrote.

As per the press release, “And Just Like That” will follow Carrie, Miranda and Charlotte as they navigate their lives in their 50s. The original series ran on HBO from 1998 to 2004 and has since spawned to two film spin-offs.

Meanwhile, Cattrall has long been vocal about not wanting to reprise her role in another “Sex and the City” reboot. In fact, it was because of her refusal to play Samantha again that the third film didn’t materialize.

Years following the spin-off “Sex and the City” movies, news broke that Cattrall’s alleged diva attitude caused the third film to crumble, but she slammed the malicious report, claiming that she had been declining the project from the get-go.

“The answer was always no and a respectful [and] firm ‘no’. I never asked for any money, I never asked for any projects. To be thought of as some kind of diva is ridiculous,” Cattrall said, adding that the cast members were never really friends on the set.
