There’s buzz again in Hollywood that “Sex and the City” is coming back.
A well-placed industry insider exclusively tells Page Six that the hit franchise will return to the small screen, with a limited series reboot coming to HBO Max, and would include all the original stars — except Kim Cattrall, who has repeatedly said she is not interested in returning.
Last September, Sarah Jessica Parker, who was also a producer on the HBO show, told Entertainment Tonight that she’d be interested in doing “some episodes of ‘Sex and the City,’” but, “I wouldn’t call it a reboot, I would call it a ‘revisit.’”
Parker — channeling her “SATC” character, “couldn’t help but wonder” – adding, “I’d like to see where all of them are. I’m curious, the world has changed even since the movie… technology and social media.” Add to that, “sexual politics and the #MeToo movement and Time’s Up… I think Carrie Bradshaw would just be so greedy to share her feelings and thoughts.”
Cattrall, who played p.r. powerhouse Samantha Jones, has feuded publicly with Parker in the past, and plans for a third feature film for the series fizzled.
In 2018, when Parker expressed condolences for the death of Cattrall’s brother, Cattrall posted, “Your continuous reaching out is a painful reminder of how cruel you really were then and now. ” She also said via Instagram, “Let me make this VERY clear. (If I haven’t already) You are not my family. You are not my friend.”
Parker has tried to defuse any tension, telling fans in 2018 of Cattrall: “Not sure if I can imagine doing another movie without her,” and insisting, there is no “catfight.”
In 2017, Cattrall had said her choice not to take part in the reunion was not over money or diva demands, but, “an empowered decision in my life to end one chapter and start another”.
Reps for HBO Max and Parker did not get back to us.
