HBO Max confirmed the ‘Sex and the City’ reboot. However, one character that won’t be coming back on the show is Samantha Jones. Here’s a look at Kim Cattrall and Sarah Jessica Parker drama.
The teaser for the show promised that there is more to the story of ‘Sex and City.’ However, Kim would not be reprising her role as Samantha. It is unclear how the show will handle Kim’s absence. As of now, the reason Kim is not coming back is because of her beef with Sarah.

The rumor about Kim and Sarah not getting along had been circulating in the media ever since ‘Sex and the City’ came to an end in 2004. At first, reports stated that the problem arose because of their difference in salaries. Sarah received the title of executive producer on the show, which led Kim to demand more money.
Despite these claims, the girls always denied these rumors. Even the creator of the show, Darren Star, dismissed this and called them mere tabloid gossip. However, in 2009, the New York Post published an article that revealed Kim and Sarah were no longer talking to each other. Things looked more evident when in 2017, Kim confirmed she won’t be coming back for the movie.
She also hinted things were not alright between her and Sarah as she said in an interview, “I think she could’ve been nicer. I really think she could’ve been nicer. I don’t know what her issue is.” In 2018, Kim suffered a loss after her brother passed away. Sarah came forward and expressed her condolences.
However, Kim did not respond to it well. “My Mom asked me today ‘When will that @sarahjessicaparker, that hypocrite, leave you alone?’ Your continuous reaching out is a painful reminder of how cruel you really were then and now. Let me make this VERY clear. (If I haven’t already) You are not my family. You are not my friend. So I’m writing to tell you one last time to stop exploiting our tragedy in order to restore your ‘nice girl’ persona,” she wrote on Instagram.
Later, Kim reminded everyone there was no “Catfight” as she said, “I have never uttered an unkind, unsupportive, unfriendly word, so I would love to redefine it. I also want to remind everybody that there were four women on the set and I spent equal time with all of them, so this was not a set with two women who didn’t get along.” As of now, Sarah and Kim seem to be maintaining their distance.

“Nope, I don’t want any part of this without @KimCattrall. Samantha was the best part of,” said another.
