When and just like that … was announced in January, it was confirmed Sarah Jessica Parker, Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon would repeat their characters Carrie Bradshaw, Charlotte York Goldenblatt and Miranda Hobbes. Executive producer of the original series, Michael Patrick King, is also returning for the next chapter of SATC.
Especially MIA? Kim Cattrallwho played fourth member of their quartet, fan favorite Samantha Jones. Given that Cattrall is known to have feuded with Parker and ruled out a return for a possible third movie, it wasn’t too surprising that she put that series on hold, but fans wondered if Samantha would be replaced.
“Samantha is not part of that story,” Parker confirmed on Instagram. “But it will always be a part of us. No matter where we are or what we do.”
And that was not the last time that she dealt with this subject.
“It’s not that black and white. We don’t want to create a fourth character,” Parker told a cameraman in January when asked if the search for a fourth actor for the new series had begun.
She added, “We have New York City as the fourth character. There will be a lot of interesting new characters to look forward to.”
