She’s back! Kim Cattrall to return as Samantha in shock And Just Like That cameo

Big news Sex and the City fans. The show’s iconic character Samantha Jones is back for one night and one night only.

Kim Cattrall reportedly filmed a cameo scene for the season two finale of SATC reboot And Just Like That on the 22nd March – all without interacting with any of the cast or showrunner, Michael Patrick King.

She was dressed by the legendary Patricia Field, the costume designer responsible for the classic looks in the original Sex and the City, despite not working on AJLT.

For those who love a spoiler, Samantha, who now resides in London, will have a phone call with Sarah Jessica Parker’s character, Carrie Bradshaw. It comes after the estranged pair chatted over text in the first season, and made a plan to meet up and make up during the finale.

While viewers may be disappointed that the 66 year old will only appear for one scene, it’s better than nothing. As last year, she told fans that she would never return as the Sex and the City icon. Baby steps, people. Baby steps.

For years, the actor expressed her indifference in reprising her role, and told Variety in May 2022 that “it’s a great wisdom to know when enough is enough.”

“I also didn't want to compromise what the show was to me. The way forward seemed clear."

At the time, Kim also admitted that she was “never asked to be part of the reboot.”

However, she did note that she’d already made it clear she had no intention of playing Samantha again after 2010’s Sex and the City 2 film.

"Can you imagine going back to a job you did 25 years ago?" Kim said, before adding that “everything has to grow, or it dies.”

During this conversation, the 66 year old revealed her stance on the whole SATC franchise, explaining that she thought it was a smart decision to end the series at that time.

“We're not repeating ourselves. And then the movie to end all the loose ends. And then there's another movie," she continued.

Kim Cattrall’s unexpected return comes just less than a month before the season two premiere of And Just Like That. Which has now been confirmed will drop on HBO on the 22nd June.

Fans can of course expect to see SATC’s three other original characters back for round two – Carrie, Miranda Hobbes (Cynthia Nixon) and Charlotte York (Kristin Davis) – who all reprised their roles for the show’s reboot last year.
