HBO Max has dropped a subtle hint at how Samantha Jones’s absence will be explained in the upcoming Sex And The City reboot And Just Like That.
While Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis will be reprising their roles of Carrie Bradshaw, Miranda Hobbs and Charlotte York in the new series, it’s been confirmed that Kim Cattrall will be a no-show.
The author of the original book previously expressed confidence that the show will be ‘just fine’ without the actress and HBO Max echoed a similar sentiment when it offered how it will address her exit from the friendship group.
‘They’re not trying to re-do Sex and the City,’ HBO Max chief content officer Casey Bloys said.
‘They’re not trying to say that these characters are reliving their 30s. It is very much a story about women in their 50s, and they are dealing with things that people deal with in their 50s.’
Bloys continued to TVLine: ‘Just as in real life, people come into your life, people leave.
‘Friendships fade, and new friendships start. 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.’
Cattrall has not yet spoken out about her lack of involvement in the Sex And The City reboot.
However, in January, she did like a tweet hinting that she ‘put her self first’ by stepping away from the revival.
And Just Like That will air on HBO Max.
