In the strangest case of life imitating art, the Sex And The City revival And Just Like That will apparently feature on Carrie Bradshaw trying to mend her friendship with Samantha Jones. Blimey.

As any committed SATC fan will know, SJP, Kristen Davis, Cynthia Nixon, Chris Noth and Aidan Shaw are all back to reprise their original roles, but one key character won't be. Kim Cattrall made it clear she had moved on from the series, which originally ran from 1998–2004, when plans for a third film were scrapped when she said she didn't want to do it.

She explained at the time it was "an empowered decision in my life to end one chapter and start another". There have been rumours for years that Kim and co-star Sarah don't get along.

Speculation that Samantha would be killed off in And Just Like That then did the rounds, after the cast were spotted wearing all-black while filming. But a new report from Daily Mail suggests she is not only still alive, but in fact is a key part to the show's storyline, with hopes that she'll come back in the future.

"We’ll announce eventually that the show will have a second season," the source said.
"This isn’t a one off, this will be a series. It will be quite a while between the first and second series as Sarah Jessica Parker has a busy schedule and we have a lot of work to do to get Kim Cattrall back.

"We all miss Kim and we hope she comes back for the second season – the door will never close on her, she is an important part of the franchise."

The report added that And Just Like That will join Carrie after she's fired Samantha as her publicist, but is hoping to win back her friendship. "You’ll see as the series progresses over the 10 episodes that Carrie misses her friend and wants to repair the relationship," the inside spilled.

"In the words of Oscar Wilde, life imitates art."

Wow. Could you even imagine?
