While she tagged Kristin and Cynthia in a promo teaser, Sarah Jessica did not tag Kim, sparking an Instagram user to write, "they dislike each other."
In response to the comment, SJPsaid, “No. I don’t dislike her. I’ve never said that. Never would. Samantha isn’t part of this story. But she will always be part of us. No matter where we are or what we do. X.”
In 2018, Parker cleared the air on rumors about Cattrall, saying "This isn't a catfight." She added, "I remain grateful for her work and the role she played on and off camera for all the years we spent together."
Meanwhile, Kim laughed off questions about "Sex and the City" while promoting "Filthy Rich" in 2019. Watch!
Sarah Aubrey, head of HBO Max's original content, said via statement.“I grew up with these characters, and I can’t wait to see how their story has evolved in this new chapter, with the honesty, poignancy, humor and the beloved city that has always defined them.”
"Sex and the City" originally aired on HBO 1998-2004, and was the subject of two successful features, one in 2008 and the other in 2010. There was also a CW prequel series starring AnnaSophia Robb called "The Carrie Diaries" in 2013.
