Everyone’s favourite carpenter says he’s back for the ‘Sex and the City’ reboot, but SJP’s not sure

And just like that, Sarah Jessica Parker pours cold water on our fever dreams of seeing the world's hottest TV carpenter back on our screens as Aidan.

News of a Sex and the City reboot first broke earlier this year. Understandably sending fans of the show into a frenzy of anticipation, many hearts were broken when it was revealed that Samantha Jones, played by Kim Cattrall, would not be making a comeback… even more hearts were broken when it was reported that neither Chris Roth nor John Corbett would be returning either.

One might question whether there’s even a point in a reboot if three of the most iconic characters don’t feature, and though there are definitely arguments in favour of each respective side, I have to say I’m very excited either way.

While many of us had just about come to terms with the fact that several of the series originals would not reprise their roles, a recent Page Six interview with one Mr Corbett, aka Aidan, the nicest man in the world, has since thrown a bit of a spanner in the works… or maybe, hammer would be more appropriate in this case. Speaking to the publication about the upcoming reboot, he is quoted as saying, “I’m going to do the show”. Questioned on how many episodes he’ll appear in, Corbett answered with a vague “I think I might be in quite a few” – later adding that the news is “very exciting” for him.

Will Aidan return? Won’t he? Mr Corbett says yes, Sarah Jessica Parker however? Well, she seems to have suggested otherwise. Leaving a very cryptic comment underneath a post shared by the Every Outfit on SATC Instagram account, SJP wrote, “I’m not saying one way or another whether our beloved Mr. Corbett’s interview deals in facts or fiction but the response is amazing to read… x”.

The token “x” at the end of the sentence does little to reassure me if I’m honest, and I couldn’t help but wonder… who should I believe?
