Sarah Jessica Parker Doesn’t Want Kim Cattrall to Appear on ‘And Just Like That’

Following the And Just Like That season finale, Sarah Jessica Parker has opened up about the Kim Cattrall of it all.

In a new interview, Parker laid rumors and speculations that Cattrall may one day appear in the Sex and the City spinoff to rest. This is a pretty big development, considering Cattrall’s disinterest in the reboot seems to stem from her fractured relationship with Parker.

When asked by Variety if she’d be comfortable with Cattrall making a return, she responded, “I don’t think I would, because I think there’s just too much public history of feelings on her part that she’s shared. I haven’t participated in or read articles, although people are inclined to let me know.”

Parker also shared that she and showrunner Michael Patrick King “didn’t go to Kim” to discuss the series. “We didn’t go to Kim for this, you know,” Parker said. “After we didn’t do the movie and the studio couldn’t meet what she wanted to do, we have to hear her and listen to her and what was important to her. It didn’t fit into what was important or needed for us.”

She continued, “There’s a very distinct line between Samantha and Kim. Samantha’s not gone. Samantha’s present, and I think was handled with such respect and elegance. She wasn’t villainized. She was a human being who had feelings about a relationship, so I think we found a way to address it which was necessary and important for people that loved her.”

Years before news of the television revival was released, Cattrall responded to questions about participating in the rumored Sex and the City 3. “Never. It’s a no from me,” she told the Daily Mail in 2017. She then hinted that her experience on SATC wasn’t pleasant, explaining, “You learn lessons in life, and my lesson is to do work with good people and try and make it fun.”

In that same interview, she spoke specifically about Parker, saying, “This is really where I take to task the people from Sex and the City, and specifically Sarah Jessica Parker. In that, I think she could have been nicer.” Later in the interview, she added, “I don’t know what her issue is, I never have.”

For her part, Parker kept her responses to their “feud” relatively diplomatic. In 2018, Parker described Cattrall’s interview as “very upsetting” and “not the way I recall our experience.”

Things came to a head that same year when Cattrall’s younger brother passed away. Parker sent her condolences via Instagram, writing, “Dearest Kim, my love and condolences to you and yours and Godspeed to your beloved brother. Xx.” She told Entertainment Tonight of her reason for reaching out to Cattrall, “If somebody in your life, whether you’re in touch with them or not, [is] suffering for any reason, it’s involuntary that you want to convey condolences or sadness or just let someone know you’re thinking about them.”
