Here’s what’s happening to Samantha Jones in the new Sex and the City

Here’s what’s happening to Samantha Jones in the new Sex and the City

And just like that, we’re hopeful again.

And Just Like That is almost upon us. But will it survive with the Samantha Jones shaped hole? Without her, sex officially left the city and they switched up the title to prove it.

We are all ready to be seduced once more and reprieved into a world of Manolos on cobbled streets, impossibly luxurious apartments for women who don’t seem to actually work and Cosmopolitans for lunch. But without Samantha carpeing every d and detailing the funkiest tasting spunk, we’ll be missing a lot of camp. But, no Samantha is better than no Sex and The City. Right?

So, how will they do it, we wondered. Will Samantha be a cancelled Trump supporter? Death by sexual exhaustion? Has she dumped the gang for better mates? Or is she too busy on Tinder?

But between the Sarah Jessica Parker feud and several interviews, it’s been made clear that Kim Catrall is deeply uninterested in returning to the series.

But all of a sudden, there is hope. It would appear that there is a door left slightly ajar for Samantha to one day return.

A source from the show reportedly told Daily Mail, “We couldn’t have Samantha roaming around New York City and not have the other women (Charlotte and Miranda) not interacting with her. It just wouldn’t have made sense.”

“Sending her to Los Angeles wasn’t an option as we’d done that in the first movie, so having her character based in London really was the perfect way to keep her alive and explain her absence.”

“Viewers will learn that she is thriving in England even though she has fallen out with Carrie.”

And just like that, hope returns. Samantha’s too busy living it up in London. Good for her.

“Carrie is the one who has the tough time without Samantha and by the end of And Just Like That you’ll see Carrie extend the olive branch and try and rekindle the friendship.”

“We have high hopes that by the time we begin filming the second season, Kim will have joined the show and Samantha Jones can make a triumphant return to the Big Apple. We want Kim back. She was missed on set. We all understand why she feels the way she does. We get it. We just want her to come back for future seasons.

“Samantha Jones is one of television’s all-time much-loved characters and Kim is a phenomenal actress who brings her to life perfectly. She needs to come home, if not for us, but for the fans that adore her.”
