When fictional journalist Carrie Bradshaw first appeared on our screens in 1998, we surely wouldn’t believe what was going to happen to her: years of friendship, numerous relationships, sexuality, but most importantly, finding her true self.
Now, 11 years after the release of the show’s second movie, Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker), Miranda Hobbes (Cynthia Nixon) and Charlotte York (Kristin Davis) are making their comebacks and therefore letting millions of people’s hearts beat faster. Announcing the reunion to the world, Parker, Hobbes and York all posted a short clip of Parker speaking “I couldn’t help but wonder… where are they now?” titling the new project as ‘And Just Like That’.
Not much has been revealed as of now but we do know that the new project will be released in 2021. The return of the groundbreaking popular series also sees us embracing the familiar characters yet the loyal viewers have to make amends with the loss of one iconic character, Samantha Jones, the character famously played by Kim Cattrall. Although the news was hard to swallow, it didn’t exactly come as a surprise considering her statement in an interview with Piers Morgan back in 2016. Cattrall recalls the phone call she received regarding SATC 3.
Her answer was “Thank you, but no.” She also stated that Sarah Jessica Parker, who played Carrie Bradshaw, could have been “nicer”.
Nevertheless, after all these years of drama, it seems they have put all their difficulties aside. When the news broke and a fan commented saying: “She didn’t tag Samantha Jones” following with “they dislike each other” Parker sets the record straight.“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” It seems Kim Catrall left the show for good. And with all the drama now aside, we cannot wait to see what the next chapter of Sex and the City holds ahead for us.
