And just like that, fans of “Sex and the City” will get to see Kim Cattrall back on the same screen as Sarah Jessica Parker.
Streaming service MAX announced on Wednesday that Cattrall would be returning to the screen as Samantha, who has been noticeably absent from the reboot “And Just Like That,” starring original cast members Parker, Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon.
An off-camera feud between Cattrall and Parker – which would eventually seep into character development in the reboot – seems to be impacting Cattrall’s return. The women reportedly share a scene, but never actually see each other.
Cattrall’s Samantha will have a phone conversation with Parker’s Carrie Bradshaw, but the actresses neither saw nor spoke to one another while filming, according to Variety.
A representative for both Cattrall and Parker did not immediately return Fox News Digital’s requests for comment.

In the season 1 finale of the reboot, an estranged Samantha and Carrie made a plan to reunite with the intent to mend their relationship.

Parker responded to Cattrall’s slight, telling Andy Cohen on his show “Watch What Happens Live” that she was “just heartbroken” hearing Cattrall never considered her a friend.
“I found it very upsetting cause that’s, you know, that’s not the way I recall our experience,” Parker admitted.
Cattrall, 66, also claims she was never asked to join the reboot in the first place.
