Grab your tissues Samantha Jones fans!
After weeks of speculation, we now have more information as to how fan favourite Samantha Jones will be written out of the Sex and The City reboot.
HBO Max chief content officer Casey Bloys recently opened up about what fans can expect in an interview with TVLine.
“They’re not trying to say that these characters are reliving their 30’s. It is very much a story about women in their 50’s, and they are dealing with things that people deal with in their 50s
“[…] Just as in real life, people come into your life, people leave. Friendships fade, and new friends start,” he says.
Bloys goes on to explain that Sarah Jessica Parker and Michael Patrick King are trying to tell an “honest story about 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,” he concluded.
Kim Cattrall and her most famous character, Samantha Jones, will be absent from the series, presumably due to the ongoing feud between Cattrall and Parker.
In 2018, Cattrall hit out at Parker following the death of her brother, telling the star that she didn’t “need her love and support” and referred to her as a “hypocrite”.
“Let me make this VERY clear. (If I haven’t already) You are not my family,” she said at the time.
“You are not my friend. I’m writing to tell you one last time to stop exploiting our tragedy in order to restore your ‘nice girl’ persona.”
Cattrall then shared a link to a New York Post article titled, “Inside the mean-girls culture that destroyed ‘Sex and the City’.”
It’s looking like a miracle will have to take place to see all four of our favourite New Yorkers on the same screen again.
You can watch the original series in HD on HBO Max.
