Sex And The City Revival Series Without Kim Cattrall Is In The Works
Sex and the City is reportedly set to be 'revisited' with another series - but not exactly as fans remember it.
According to The Post, the revival won't include fan favourite Samantha Jones - played by actress Kim Cattrall - and instead include the show's three other main characters played by Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis.
It's understood the WarnerMedia-owned platform is working out deals to bring back the classic series to air as a limited event on streaming platform HBO Max rather than HBO, which aired the original series.
Last September, Sarah Jessica Parker, who was also a producer on the HBO show, told Entertainment Tonight that she was interested in doing 'some episodes of Sex and the City' but added: "I wouldn't call it a reboot, I would call it a 'revisit.'"
Parker added: "I'd like to see where all of them are. I'm curious, the world has changed even since the movie... technology and social media."
As well as this, she hoped to explore 'sexual politics and the #MeToo movement and Time's Up... I think Carrie Bradshaw would just be so greedy to share her feelings and thoughts.'
Cattrall and Sarah Jessica Parker have had a notoriously checkered history, with the pair regularly trading barbs back and forth via interviews and social media - mostly from Cattrall's end.

In 2018, when Parker expressed condolences for the death of Cattrall's brother, Cattrall posted to social media: "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."
Parker later attempted to diffuse tension by insisting that there was no 'catfight' between the pair.
Cattrall has been very public about her desire to put the franchise, her co-stars and her character of behind her, saying in an October 2017 interview with Piers Morgan that she hoped SATC's creative team would recast the role of Samantha with a non-white actress.
"It's a great part," she said at the time.
"I played it past the finish line and then some, and I loved it. And another actress should play it. Maybe they could make it an African-American Samantha Jones, or a Hispanic Samantha Jones."
Cattrall added that her choice not to participate in any franchise reboots was due to 'an empowered decision in my life to end one chapter and start another'.
The original series, of course, ran for six seasons on HBO and spawned two movies. The show also nabbed numerous Emmys during its time on the air.
