- A revival season for the cult series “Sex and the City” is being created for HBO Max.
- Fan favorite Samantha Jones doesn’t return for “And Just Like That …”.
- Without Kim Cattrall’s iconic figure, the new edition won’t work.
From 1998 to 2004 the New York series, which was groundbreaking at the time, flickered “Sex and the City“about the 4 friends Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker), Samantha Jones (Kim Cattrall), Charlotte York (Kristin Davis) and Miranda Hobbes (Cynthia Nixon) on the television screens. After 2 commercially very successful films from 2008 and 2010 the cult series is now getting a revival season under the title “And Just Like That…
The ultimate Netzwelt series quiz
What else is “Peaky Blinders” star Cillian Murphy known for?
But instead of relying again on the ingenious clique chemistry of the 4 New Yorkers, the new edition lacks the most iconic series character Samantha Jones, played by Kim Cattrall. Revival seasons are not necessarily successful anyway. But with the decision against Samantha, HBO Max runs the risk of permanently damaging the memory of the cult series. To set up a revival at all, in which the most integral and certainly most entertaining figure is missing from the start, only triggers a lack of understanding: The “Sex and the City” remake without Samantha Jones makes no sense at all!
That’s why “Sex and the City” only works with Samantha
When the news of the upcoming “Sex and the City” revival became public, the commentators, of course, immediately got excited online and in social networks. A post from Twitter user @davidthomvs seems to hit particularly hard here. He writes: “‘Sex and the City’ ohne Samantha ist nur ‘and the City’
At this point you can find one Tweet, which complements the article. You can display it with one click.
Like none of the other characters in “Sex and the City”, PR consultant Samantha Jones personified the “sex-positive” New Yorker who always got what she wanted. Fan-favorite Samantha navigated even the raunchiest and most hair-raising sexual situations of “Sex and the City”, as she was endowed with a huge self-confidence and had the ability to call things bluntly and gloriously by name between the sheets …
That was in large part due to the comedic talent of her actress Kim Cattrall. Cattrall even transferred her Samantha role to reality and published the book “Satisfaction: The Art of Female Orgasm” together with husband Mark Levinson in 2002, at the height of the “Sex and the City” hype.
What is actually the reason for the rift between the 4 leading actresses, which now makes Samantha’s return impossible, should not be speculated on here. One thing is certain, because that is publicly documentedthat Kim Cattrall and Carrie actress Sarah Jessica Parker, who also produces the Revival, are no friends. HBO Max does not provide any information about the absence of Samanthas, but viewers can basically treat themselves to this revival, that’s already certain.
