And author Candace Bushnell, who wrote the book on which the TV show was based, told PageSix.com that the reboot titled And Just Like That. will work just fine without Cattrall. Despite this unfortunate news, it was HBO that officially made a statement.
Sarah Jessica Parker likely knew fans would be inquiring about Kim Cattrall's absence from the new "Sex and the City" trailer that was revealed on Sunday, and the Carrie Bradshaw performer certainly was ready. HBO Max said in its announcement that the new series "will follow Carrie, Miranda and Charlotte as they navigate the journey from the complicated reality of life and friendship in their 30s to the even more complicated reality of life and friendship in their 50s".
Louis might be back in New York City! Michael Patrick King, the producer of the original series and the "Sex and the City" films, is also on board as executive producer.
The show is set for 10 episodes in total which is each half-an-hour.

Many fans took to social media to share their thoughts on how the show's writers could possibly address the character's absence from the show.
Whichever way the writers handle Samantha's departure from the show, one thing's for sure: We'll be tuning in when this revival premieres. Responding to a comment on her post teasing the new project, "Happy to see you back but will miss Kim/Samantha", the Hocus Pocus star replied, "We will too".
Kim apparently never wants to play Samantha again or be part of any future SATC movies. But she will always be a part of us. "No matter where we are or what we do. X".
Some folks thought that replacing Cattrall was the best option, and one fan believed that "Schitt's Creek" star Catherine O'Hara would make a nice Samantha.
