Kim Cattrall Is Reprising Her Role As Samantha Jones on ‘And Just Like That’ … Kind Of

by Carmella D'Acquisto

Samantha Jones stans rejoice– word is out that the iconic character is returning to our screens for a cameo in an upcoming episode of the Sex and the City revivalist show, And Just Like That… but there’s a catch. The quartet is not reuniting– the cameo will take place via a phone call between Carrie and Samantha.

According to Good Morning America, HBO has confirmed that Samantha Jones will indeed be featured in the second season of And Just Like That…. In the beginning of season one, we learned that Samantha Jones moved to London to continue her career as a publicist. We also found out that Samantha and Carrie had a falling out.

“I told her because of what the book business is now, it just didn’t make sense for me to keep her on as a publicist. She said fine. Then she fired me as a friend,” said Carrie in an episode to explain the character’s absence. The spin-off series has received mixed reviews, but no matter how nostalgic it is to get the gang back together, it just isn’t the same without the show’s (arguably) most beloved character.

At the end of season one, Carrie was in Paris and we see her having a text conversation with Samantha. “Want to talk?,” Carrie texted Samantha. “Soon,” she responded. Carrie then went on to ask if the following night would work to meet for a cocktail and reconnect.

However, it seems like they won’t be meeting for that drink after all, they will reconnect via a telephone call. According to Variety, Kim will “appear in one scene” that she filmed in March without speaking to any of her former co-stars, including Sarah Jessica Parker. Variety states that Sex and the City costume designer Patricia Field styled Samantha for the scene, and we cannot wait to see how incredible she looks in her new life.

While we’re bummed we won’t get to see the gang back together on our screens, we’re happy enough that the Sex and the City universe will once again be complete, even if it’s just for a minute!
