Fans hoping to see Samantha Jones reunite with her friends onscreen in the next season of “And Just Like That” will be disappointed, as Sarah Jessica Parker has all but confirmed she has no intentions of working with Kim Cattrall again. “I don’t think I would,” Parker told Variety when asked if she’d be okay with Cattrall reprising her role in the near future. “Because I think there’s just too much public history of feelings on her part that she’s shared.”
The public history that Parker referenced could be when Cattrall declined to sign on for third “Sex and the City” film in 2017. The Daily Mail reported that Cattrall wouldn’t get back to anyone about her future on the film despite the fact that Parker, Cynthia Nixon, and Kristin Davis, had already signed on. Cattrall’s non-committal attitude supposedly caused the film to be shelved. Parker then told Extra that she was “disappointed” that the film wouldn’t go forward.
Cattrall denied allegations that her behavior caused the third film to be shelved, telling Piers Morgan’s “Life Stories” in 2017 (via E! News) that Parker “could have been nicer” about the situation. She also added that her decision to pull out of the film was because she wanted to “end one chapter and start another.” Clearly, there’s no love lost between the former co-stars.
