Sex and the City was one of the popular American romantic dramedy in the ’90s and early 2000s. Recently, some sources revealed HBO Max’s plan to revive the classic as a limited series.
The drama is about the relationship and work-life of four inseparable friends in New York City. With the girl gang starring Sarah Jessica Parker (Carrie Bradshaw), Kristin Davis (Charlotte York Goldenblatt) and Cynthia Nixon (Miranda Hobbes). But this time Kim Cattrall, who played the role of Samantha Jones, will not be turning up again.
The series first premiered on June 6, 1998, and it went off the air on February 22, 2004, with the successful run of six seasons. The upcoming reboot will include all the original lead characters except for Cattrall. She revealed that she felt “lucky” to have played the role of Samantha but was not interested to play it again in the upcoming series.
Cattrall responded to the negative comments she has received: “I remember getting a lot of grief on social media for not wanting to do a film. It was astonishing some of the things people wrote to me—’I work in a bank and I don’t like this person and I don’t like the hours, but I do it. So you just do it!’”
She added: “Give me what I want. I do it. I’m miserable, you be miserable too” She added “I want to use my platform to tell stories about women my age who have gone through loss. Loss is the biggest headache for my ’60s so far, I’ve lost my father. I’ve lost my brother.”
The limited series would be the latest HBO reboot after True Blood and In treatment. Sex and the City is being created by Darren Star for HBO.
