And Just Like That, Kim Cattrall Will Return for One Episode of “Sex and the City” Reboot This Summer


It’s hard to believe, but Samantha Jones will make an appearance this summer in “Sex and the City: And Just Like That.”

Cattrall refused to join the reboot series for its first season, and won’t be in any of the second season until the the very end. Variety reports that Samantha will call Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker). We’ll see her, but the scene was taped separately without the other actors in the same room.

Variety says HBO chief Casey Bloys pulled this off. He must have driven gold bullion to Cattrall’s door. As we all know by now — everyone on the planet knows — these people were done with each other.

Coincidentally, “Sex and the City” returns to Max on June 22nd, the same day Cattrall’s new series, “Glamorous,” debuts on Netflix.
