We are just one day away from the premiere of the ‘SATC’ reboot, “And Just Like That.”
You may notice there is one character absent from the original “Sex and the City” lineup, and that is the iconic Samantha Jones (Kim Cattrall).
“And Just Like That” is almost here!
Cattrall and SJP had a very public falling out in real life, which boiled over into their professional lives.
One of the biggest questions about the reboot has been, “How will Samantha Jones be written out?”
Some fans theorized that Samantha would die and that’s how she would be written out.
Showrunner and executive producer Michael Patrick King revealed that Samantha is NOT dead in an interview with the New York Times.
While the specifics of Samantha’s departure have been kept under wraps, it has been revealed that the character moved across the pond to London.
Samantha Jones is a no-show in reboot
Nixon and Davis also dished on-set secrets during a recent interview with Stephen Colbert.
The actresses stopped by “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” on Tuesday, December 7.
The cast has been filming the reboot in New York City over the last five months, but despite a few paparazzi photos being snapped, specifics about the series have not been leaked.
And there’s a very good reason as to why set secrets haven’t been leaked. The cast worked tirelessly to throw fans off and limit the number of spoilers leaking.
“There are rumors that you guys actually shot fake scenes around New York to throw people off the scent,” Colbert said.
“Yes. Yes, definitely!” Davis excitedly said.
Nixon tried to play it coy and chimed in, “Absolutely not,” with a laugh, before she gave a nod saying, “It might be true.”
Davis, Nixon and Parker’s biggest goal is for the audience to enjoy the new series.
“We want the fans to enjoy the show,” Davis explained. “I think that’s the important part.”
Nixon added, “We don’t want them to know — we don’t want them to read the Cliff Notes beforehand.”

She echoed a similar sentiment on the TODAY show on Wednesday, December 8.
When asked about the backlash the series is already getting surrounding the women’s age and makeup choices, Nixon said, “I think they’re judging it before they’ve even seen it. I say wait and see it first.”

Earlier this year the ‘SATC’ family lost a near-and-dear cast member and friend, Willie Garson.
The actor, who played the role of Carrie’s gay BFF, Standford Blatch, sadly passed away from cancer.
The Blast reported on Tuesday, September 21, the “Sex and the City” actor passed away at the age of 57 after a secret battle with pancreatic cancer.
King, executive producer and showrunner, revealed to NYT that Garson’s death with not be written into the series.
Nixon and Davis remembered Garson fondly during their late-night stop to Colbert’s show.
“Willie was just a person who just lightened any situation that he was in and just would have you in stitches within, you know, a minute of coming into a conversation,” Nixon stated. “He was a person with incredible stories, like show business stories and stories about his own zany life and his family that he comes from and the family that he created.”
Davis added, “He was so full of joy and so incredibly brilliant and smart and really … even being sick, which we didn’t know about in the beginning, he still brought so much joy.”
“And Just Like That” start streaming on HBO Max Thursday, December 9.
