Kim Cattrall Responds to Fan Reactions to Her Absence From "And Just Like That..."

Samantha Jones, played by Kim Cattrall, is noticeably absent from the Sex and the City reboot And Just Like That... The actor has previously explained why she isn't on the show, and she recently went on a social media spree liking fan comments about her absence. Here are some of the tweets she liked, as well as what fans can expect to see Cattrall do next.

Kim Cattrall has previously expressed her dissatisfaction with her experience filming Sex and the City.

She has stated that the show played a role in her divorce from her third husband, Mark Levinson, as well as the fact that she is childless.

Cattrall also stated that the shooting schedule necessitated days that were sometimes longer than 18 hours long, with little time for rest in between.

Her negative experience with Sex in the City prompted her to announce that she would no longer be a part of the series after filming Sex in the City 2 in 2010.

Cattrall's absence from And Just Like That... is also due to her ongoing feud with former co-star Sarah Jessica Parker, who plays Carrie Bradshaw in both Sex and the City and And Just Like That... The two women have vastly different accounts of the events that led to their friendship's demise.

Finally, Michael Patrick King, the showrunner of And Just Like That..., has stated that Kim Cattrall was never considered for the reboot of the popular series.

"And Just Like That... was never four. It was never on the radar as four because Kim Cattrall, for whatever reason, didn't want to play Samantha anymore while we were shooting the movie," he said (via Hollywood Reporter).

Cattrall recently broke her silence on the Sex in the City reboot by liking a few tweets about her absence from the series.

"Kim Cattrall didn't return to SATC because her scatting career is finally taking off," one fan tweeted, followed by a red heart emoji.

"And just like that... I find myself only wanting to watch anything @KimCattrall is in. This is a Kim appreciation tweet," read another fan tweet liked by Cattrall. The tweet also included a gif of Cattrall smoking with the caption, "I'm a lady who needs a smoke. I'm not a smoker."

"And just like that... I want to rewatch the 2014 HBO Canada prestige Toronto-set dramedy Sensitive Skin starring Kim Cattrall," another tweet said.

Cattrall appears to be fine with not being a part of And Just Like That, based on her Twitter activity.

Cattrall will be seen in the upcoming series How I Met Your Father, which is a spinoff of How I Met Your Mother.

She will play Sophie, the main character, who will be played by Hilary Duff.

Christopher Lowell of GLOW and Josh Peck of Drake and Josh will also appear in the upcoming series, which is currently in post-production.

The show will premiere on Hulu on January 18, 2022.
