Sex and the City‘s author Candace Bushnell, says she was “startled” by a lot of the decisions of the reboot series, And Just Like That… She says in a new interview with The New Yorker that the series is definitely not what she would have expected it to be, calling it a “television product” where Carrie Bradshaw ended up a “quirky girl who married a rich guy.” BLOOP! I mean… I couldn’t help but wonder… was Candace right?
In the finale (or season finale) of the Sex and the City revival, And Just Like That…, Sarah Jessica Parker’s Carrie Bradshaw connects again with Samantha Jones through texts and (!!!!!!!SPOILER ALERTS AHEAD!!!!!!), it seems like they’re on the way to patching things up. But that doesn’t mean that Kim Cattrall’s Samantha is going to show up in season two (if there is a season two) of AJTL. Because creator Michael Patrick King already said that the door is closed on Kim returning to the show. And now SJP has co-signed that. But SJP wants to make it clear that Kim Cattrall and Samantha Jones are completely separate and while Kim may be gone from the SATCverse, Samantha is not. You hear that, Christina Aguilera?! Call your agent because your Samantha Jones impersonation may be needed.
Michael Patrick King Says The Door Isn’t Open For Kim Cattrall To Make An Appearance On “And Just Like That…”
The season finale of the Sex and the City revival, And Just Like That…, will be available tomorrow on HBO Max and so Variety has an interview with creator Michael Patrick King. In it, he talks about the reactions to the series which sees the return of Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon, and Kristin Davis. As we know, Kim Cattrall wants nothing to do with the show anymore. And MPK also says that the door for her to return is closed. “Bitch, I wasn’t even looking at that door!” said Kim Cattrall somewhere.
Some Sex and the City purists might argue that HBO’s revival, And Just Like That…, isn’t worth a damn without Samantha Jones, and others might suggest it’s a confusing mess of a million questionable storylines and horrible costumes. But the premiere of And Just Like That… gave HBO Max its strongest series debut when it dropped earlier this month, and there have been rumors that it won’t be a one-season series. So it’s not stretching your imagination too hard to picture a second season. But according to a source who spoke with Us Weekly, the whole situation with Chris Noth has kind of caused everyone to hit the brakes on talk of Season 2.
Chris Noth Has Been Dropped From “The Equalizer,” While The Cast Of “And Just Like That…” Releases A Statement
I probably could have killed two birds with one stone by writing, “And Just Like That…Chris Noth isn’t getting a CBS check anymore.” And it would fit since we’re getting almost daily updates on the swift career downfall of Chris Noth in the wake of some very serious sexual assault allegations. Chris Noth doesn’t seem to be doing much better, work-wise, because his regular gig on The Equalizer has vanished. Some people might be saying, “Who cares about a show I was never going to watch – what does Carrie, Miranda, and Charlotte have to say about this situation?“. Well, Carrie, Miranda, and Charlotte issued a joint statement on the matter, and they’re standing in solidarity with the women who have come forward to tell their stories.
And Just Like That… premiered last week, and that shit sucked harder than Samantha Jones blowing a delivery boy in her office. Fans criticized how the show handled Kim Cattrall’s absence, Carrie’s lack of response to **SPOILER ALERT** Big’s death by Peloton (CALL 911!!!), those cringe attempts at addressing racism, and Charlotte’s, um, “updated” face. In a new interview with The Sunday Times 56-year-old Kristin Davis says that the intensity of the comments about her onscreen appearance “shocked” and angered her. Continue reading
