Can't Keep an Old Horse Down: Sex and the City Season 7 in the Works...Without Samantha
Because 2020 hasn't been bad enough.
Sarah Jessica Parker will NOT BE IGNORED.
That long-gestating third Sex and the City movie may finally be coming to fruition — as a series (and sans a key player).
HBO Max is reportedly near a deal to revive the iconic comedy franchise as a limited series, with leads Sarah Jessica Parker, Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon set to reprise their signature roles as Carrie, Charlotte and Miranda, respectively. Meanwhile, Kim Cattrall — who has been very public about her desire to put the franchise, her co-stars and her character of Samantha, behind her — is not expected to be involved in the quasi-seventh season.
The New York Post first broke the news.
In an October 2017 interview with Piers Morgan, Cattrall implored SATC‘s creative team — who have previously been taken to task for the series’ poor track record on diversity — to recast the role of Samantha with a non-white actress. “It’s a great part,” she said at the time. “I played it past the finish line and then some, and I loved it. And another actress should play it. Maybe they could make it an African-American Samantha Jones, or a Hispanic Samantha Jones.”
The original series, of course, ran for six seasons on HBO and spawned two movies. The show garnered numerous Emmys during its time on the air — including wins for stars Parker and Nixon.
TVLine has reached out to an HBO Max rep for a comment.

SJP needs to let it go already. Samantha was the best part of that franchise and the character belongs to Kim Cattrall. The rule of thumb with any sequel or reboot is - If you can't get all the original actors to participate, just don't do it! At this point they're only going to do harm to the legacy of SaTC. Do they really need the money that bad?

SJP can't possibly need the money. I remember when she was promoting SATC's final season. She said she wanted the show to end on top while it was still hot and fresh. Well I guess that sentiment has gone out the window, since they're gonna ride this thing til the wheels fall off and ruin their legacy while doing it.

Stone could easily play Sam's sister. They're both tall, striking bottle blondes, and Sharon is a couple of years younger than Kim and looks fantastic. If they killed off Samantha, they could meet 'Susan' or whatever at Sam's funeral and the first part of the season could be about whether or not they can accept a new member of the group. There's no reason to make 'Susan' (or whatever) as much of a sexpot, either. The women are in their 50s/60s now and we don't need to see so much nudity and fucking. They can joke about it like the Golden Girls did, they can even have it, but I for one don't want to see it.
And if this thing gets off the ground, they'll definitely kill off Big as the third movie was supposed to. Carrie can angst about Big forever while getting back in the dating scene. 'Susan' will be single, and I wouldn't be at all surprised if they split up Miranda and Steve again. That would just leave Charlotte as married, and since she was always the prissy one, a married Charlotte wouldn't throw too many wrenches in the works. Give Charlotte a trans kid or something and she'll have enough to do plotwise.

Big and Samantha both experienced serious health problems on the first run of the show, so killing them off in their early 60s would be plausible. Splitting up Samantha and Steve would also be plausible. Giving Charlotte a trans kid would be timely and give her something to do other than being married to the always charming Harry. The new fourth woman doesn't have to be related to Sam in any way, but she'll have to bring that manic sexual energy and knowing humor that Cattrall always brought to the group. Stone would be a good choice because we know she has both of those qualities, and she's a big enough star that people will tune in just to see how she fits in the role. I don't think they'd do that for Jean Smart or Morgan Fairchild.

Cattrall is bitter that Darren Star didn't invent S&C a decade earlier and she could have starred as Carrie. Cattrall has always been jealous of SJP, and passively aggressive gaslighted her into thinking it was because SJP was insensitive about a tragedy. Fuck her.

Interesting, R85. I like Kim Cattrall and do think she was a big reason that the old show was such a success; however, to your point, I've never understood why so many people seemed to automatically conclude that SJP was the villain in their reportedly fraught relationship. I've heard (from someone who worked on the set of the original series) that they were both actually "nice" people (their word) who definitely had differences but no report that SJP was a monster. I've even heard stories that it was sort of a Bob Denver/Tina Louise situation with a supporting actor who felt she should be treated more as the star of the show instead of just as a co-star and that was also a big part of the problem.
Perhaps SJP really was terrible on set and perhaps she wasn't. Just saying we really don't know for sure.

Agreed. She's also in the position where she gets to pick and choose roles based on what interests her, which not every actor gets to do. Honestly, it feels like the original issue for her in coming back to SatC was that she had played Samantha as far as she could go and there was nothing left in that character, and instead she wanted to spend her time playing different characters. The dust up between SJP and her seemed to spring up more after SJP started making underhand comments in public about Cattrall, trying to shame her into saying yes to the third movie, something that had happened before either the first or second movie too.

It's revealed in the opening scenes that Samantha and Big have fallen in love with each other, betrayed Carrie, and run off together. He dies.
That gets rid of both of them without the necessity of casting them and lends a story arc to whatever other stupid nonsense they come up with.

I suspect IF they have Samantha back, it'll be for one episode then kill her off in a freak accident. Then the final season is of the other 3 trying to cope with her death and their failing relationships and then maybe they can introduce a woman of colour into the fold to be a replacement

How about a story line where one of the cast members decides to pursue a career in politics? Maybe she could run for governor of New York State and she hires Carrie to be her stylist.
Another story line could be where Mr. Big cheats on Carrie, then misleads her and she finds out. Carrie becomes devastated that having misled and cheated on Aiden, the man she cheated with would cheat on her and mislead her after she cheated.

If she wanted Kim to be forever loyal, maybe SJP should have done what the main Big Bang stars did when they gave us some of their money so a couple of their co-stars could make bank in the final seasons.
Instead, she took what she could get and didn’t look out for anyone else.

Kim just this week came out and said the big reason she hates SJP is because she was 41 when the show began and only then decided to maybe have kids but realized she wouldn't be able to fit it into her schedule plus she was too old by then anyway. Even though the other three actresses had kids during the run of the show. And somehow that's SJP's fault? Why did Kim wait until she was fucking 41 to think about having kids? Dumb bitch has nobody to blame for being a lonely childless old cow now but herself. She should have popped out a kid or two when she was in her 30s but then she'd have had to give up some of those 80s slut roles.

One season wonder (for the slaughter it receives.) This is like Carol Channing clinging to Hello, Dolly! Sure, it reminds you of something, but it reminds you of something else, too, and your nose wrinkles as a result.
The first seasons were good, different, inventive. The balance of the seasons found their stride as a comedy, not what it was but there was worse ran longer, although Carrie Bradshaw went free range in the process turned into somebody nobody liked, though she was an effective human shopping channel.
The movies were Michael Patrick King gone free range. The first recycled the series with a bigger budget. The second - words still fail most of us but take your pick from synonym for burlesque.
So am skeptical they can revive this show to produce anything worth the effort or with legs to last. Nobody even yet understands the zeitgeist post COVID but it won't be Patricia Field throwing a seizure and calling it clothes. Maybe if Darren Star drives the bus... it was his baby when it worked.

Everything about SATC has aged badly and in such a short time too. Even during the last couple of seasons during its run, SATC was already creaky. The characters were already too old to be wallowing in the dilemmas that they were going through, particularly Carrie. It was the reason why the show Girls came on the scene, so I guess Lens should thank SATC for her short stint as tv star.
Back to how dated SATC is, everything from Carrie’s try-too-hard wardrobe, trends (cupcake anyone?), Mr.Big finance/ business-type characters as THE coveted husband material, complaining about drudgery of living in great apartment paid for by job that consists of going to parties/ gallery openings and writing about it, so on and so forth.

As a woman, I think it has potential IF they deal with how women’s wants/needs change in our 50s. Menopause really kills sexual desire, which at first is sad but then liberating. You’re no longer driven by your hormones and can focus on things that you’re interested in. That’s why most women get happier/mellow with age.
Also, you don’t make a lot of new friends as you get older. So maintaining those friendships is organic, though you don’t see each other nearly as much as you used to because you have families, careers, etc.
Also, if I were black, I’d be insulted if they just stuffed a black character in. Felt that’s what they did with Jennifer Hudson in SATC movie 1. Sainted assistant to Carrie.
Anyway, I think it has potential. I always thought it would be interesting to explore more about their early family life. Carrie’s seemed pretty troubled. The episode where Miranda’s mom died was truly terrific.

I think R215 has a point. A six or eight episode series where the girls really take a look at themselves and how their lives have changed now that old age is approaching would be interesting. A widowed Carrie wondering if life has another soulmate in store, a divorced Miranda letting go of the bitterness of the past, Charlotte seeing yet another monkey wrench thrown into her 'perfect' life and then learning to accept a trans kid, Samantha facing a wealthy but lonely retirement and wondering if this is all there is? Have great fashions but tone down the abject consumerism and constant product placement, FINALLY let the characters grow and change, and it could be a fitting coda to the series. End it with the four girls at a diner once again, older, wiser, and realizing that as they head into old age, the men will fall away and they will be depending on each other more than ever (cue 'thank you for being a friend' music).
It could work, but it wouldn't be the SATC of the past. And that would be for the best. Nobody needs a fiftysomething manic pixie dream girl Carrie and her slutty ass friends.

Samantha needs a Rhett Butler moment.... at the end of GWTW he isn't sorry for anything he's done or how he's lived, but he's weary of it.
Samantha should fall head over heels, monogamously in love and stun even herself.
Kim might actually play that. But, yeah, Samantha's banging days need to be over. She was too in control of herself to make a fool of herself.

It's hard to think that these women are the same age as say, Zoe Kravitz and Aubrey Plaza only because all of the SATC actresses were/are so homely in their own way. Even Charlotte the pretty one had a funny face and frumpy body from the waist down

Win-win. Cast Madonna as the new blonde aging "bad" friend. SATC wants to be relevant, Madonna is desperate for attention.

Samantha was the best character, but I don't think she was the heart of the show.

Take Sam/the fourth woman in a different direction - Have Sarah Paulson play an odd, dark, somewhat disturbing character.

SJP will never consent to signing on Madonna or Sharon Stone. They are bigger names and have more star quality than she does. She won't be able to dictate terms to them and remain the sole star of the show with either of them around.
SJP was able to get away with screwing Kim over because Cattrall was a struggling B or C-list actress before SATC revived her career.

Stone is a diva and that is certainly not what the cast wants, having endured Kim. What about the scripts, what are these aging actresses going to talk about, their incontinence problems, dating problems and rest assured the men will all be much, much younger.

Michael Patrick King will destroy what little hope this thing has. He dreamt up the road show to the Middle East after all.

Actually I take it back. Who better to write about the angst and pointlessness of three shallow, over the hill women than a late middle aged gay man who produces budget television.

A riotous comedy turned searing drama could be crafted from quarantining the four original actresses together.
Maybe Cattrall could be talked into that? I’d watch.

Here's what I am hoping what they will do but I am sure it won't happen given that Darren Starr is not involved. Go back to Season 1 SATC. Make it grittier. A story centered around Miranda, Carrie and Charlotte would work if done right.

it actually could work if they'd refocus it a bit - accept that they're in their 50s. I'm not saying no sex, just present it differently and maybe some of the wilder sex topics and stories can be presented through younger surrogates/side characters. And Carrie as corny as it might seem, I think Carrie could write about aging and sex/relationships. Have a column about your man checking out younger women, a column about "feeling" old. Not every episode, but just as a balance.

Maybe Matthew Broderick can join the cast as Samantha. Lord knows he's been fucked by at least as many men as she.

They should just cast Vanessa Williams as Samantha and move on. But give Samantha the dignity of dialling it back. She was always in control.

Carrie: "Ever since he's had Covid, Big has the funkiest tasting spunk."
Charlotte: "You mean. . .you . . .taste it?"
Carrue: "You don't?"
Charlotte: "Harry and I have a strict no-swallow rule. It's even in our pre-nup."
Miranda: "See? This is what I dont get. Men get COVID and then expect us to swallow their cum. Meanwhile, ask a man to eat you out and suddenly he has to get up early in the morning."

This shit is sad, it's like when you watch star trek and they all start out young and by the last one the directors have to use long shots of the characters running to hide the fact it's a stunt double, as the actors need zimmer frames. Shows and movies need to know when to end. Gotta give it to Jackman he went out just as he couldnt fight aging anymore, rather than sticking at it and ending up like Patrick Stewart in Picard.

Is this just media speculation or a PR campaign? Because it's feeling a little oversaturated already. I think it's strange how the last ten or twenty years have been so focused on rebooting and sequels and remaking the past. It's as if creativity - at least in film and television - has been tapped.

Companies are terrified of losing money, so they'd rather throw money at things that worked in the past than take a risk and create something new. We are in the post golden age of television now, Game of Thrones ended in 2019, even with it's awful final season, that was the curtain coming down on the second golden age that started with the Sopranos.
