The Mail on Sunday had also reported that while Kim Cattrall’s Samantha Jones won’t return in the S*x And The City Reboot, the project will be introducing new characters. A source told the site, “Samantha isn’t coming back but we are introducing two new characters, strong and feisty women of color, who will help introduce the show to a new generation of viewers and more accurately reflect the world we live in.”
A while ago, Sarah Jessica Parker, who plays Carrie Bradshaw on the series and subsequent movies, had spoken about the white cast. She said, “You couldn’t make it today because of the lack of diversity on screen. I personally think it would feel bizarre.”
