Unique collection government producer Michael Patrick King can also be returning for SATC‘s subsequent chapter. 

Notably M.I.A.? Kim Cattrall, who performed the fourth member of their quartet, fan-favorite Samantha Jones. Provided that Cattrall has famously feuded with Parker and dominated out a return for a possible third movie, it wasn’t too stunning to see her sit this collection out, however it did go away followers to marvel if Samantha would get replaced.

“Samantha is not a part of this story,” Parker confirmed on Instagram. “However she’s going to at all times be a part of us. Regardless of the place we’re or what we do.”

And that wasn’t the last time she weighed in on the subject.

“It isn’t fairly as black and white as that. We’re not trying to create a fourth character,” Parker told a cameraman in January, when requested if the seek for a fourth solid member for the brand new collection had begun.

She added, “Now we have New York Metropolis as a fourth character. There will be plenty of fascinating new characters that we’re enthusiastic about.”
