” And I could not help however wonder …” could Sex and the City deal with Samantha Jones?
News of the Sex and the City reboot has today been bittersweet for fans, as the cult series revival features a price– no Kim Cattrall.
HBO has actually confirmed that the reboot will be titled And Just Like That … and will see the return of Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis reprising their iconic functions as Carrie, Miranda and Charlotte.
Explained by HBO Max as a “brand-new chapter” of the hit ’90 s and ’00 s reveal, the 10- episode series will follow Carrie browsing life in her 50 s in New York City.
However, as news of the reboot has been met with some suspicion as lots of fans and TELEVISION enthusiasts can’t envisage SATC without Cattrall’s sex-positive and quippy one-liner existence.
The announcement has actually triggered a wave of reactions online with fans joking and making memes about the news series without Samantha.
” Honey, if you do not have Samantha, you don’t have a show. Everybody understands that,” said one Twitter user, embracing the cadence of the beloved character.
“ Sex and the City without Samantha is absolutely Orwellian,” joked another.
RuPaul’s Drag Race star Tatianna included: “ Sex and the City without Samantha is not S ex and the City“
Some of the jokes centered around an imagined plotline that Samantha is dead or has been eliminated by Carrie.
” Yes, I eliminated Samantha,” joked one Twitter user along with the well-known image of Carrie writing her column, the program’s popular metaphor driven voiceover.
” I think they need to modify Samantha with Leslie Jones,” stated another.

Author Taffy Brodesser-Akner began a Twitter thread asking fans to respond with some recommended plotlines that explains Samantha’s lack.
Some recommendations consist of “she was a mannequin the whole time” (a nod to Cattrall’s 1987 movie Mannequin) and the heartbreaking: “She passed away of cancer. It came back. The program opens at her funeral.”
Another tip is a puppet take on the function: “Samantha will not be absent, the role will be played by a puppet.”
Carrie star Parker even responded to say she has “pen and paper “at the ready, suggesting that the script is not yet composed and potentially offering a glimpse of hope that Cattrall may yet come on board the job.
Newsweek has actually connected to Cattrall’s publicist for comment.
