And Just Like That: This is how Samantha Jones is being written out of the Sex and the City reboot

After it was confirmed that And Just Like That would not feature Samantha Jones, the rumour mill went into overdrive as fans theorised about how the show's creators would explain her absence.

While some fans were concerned her character could be killed off (please, no), it looks like the show has a suitable alternative in mind – and if rumours are to be believed, they're leaving the door open for Samantha to return…

A source from the show reportedly told The 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.”

They added that, “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.”

So there you have it, the rumours are that Samantha will be chilling in the Big Smoke and living her best London life. The source also told The Daily Mail, “Viewers will learn that she is thriving in England even though she has fallen out with Carrie.”

It also appears that the show's creators are optimistic that Kim Cattrall may return for the second season of And Just Like That: “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."

The source continued, “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.”

[quote] by the time we begin filming the second season,

A second season? NOOOOOO!!! They shoot horses don't they is so appropriate on many levels.

and Kim C. has said she will NEVER return. She hates SJP. This is all PR nonsense by SJP's people.

I think a second season of AJLT may be wishful thinking. HBO is only committed so far to 10 new episodes in one season. Wait and see how it plays out.

If they gave Divorce two seasons, I wouldn't be surprised if they gave this two seasons.

So they're trying to gaslight Kim now??

HBO actually gave the mediocre DIVORCE 3 seasons R5. because of their long-term relationship with SJP, but I'm sure they regretted it. DIVORCE never got better (IMHO) and never, ever found an audience.

I think HBO is being much more cautious with AJLT.
