In a recent appearance on The View, Golden Globe winner Kim Cattrall opened up about her surprise return in the upcoming second season of Max’s sequel ‘Sex and the City.’ And just like that.
Cattrall confirmed that it was the head of HBO who invited her to reprise her legendary role as Samantha Jones for a cameo in Season 2. She also revealed a condition to accepting the offer.
The condition? HBO had to hire award-winning costume designer Patricia Field to dress her for the cameo. Field worked with Cattrall on all six seasons of Sex and the City, as well as the films’ sequels. Field recently reunited with the Sex and the City actress in her latest Netflix series, Glamorous.
“It’s very interesting to get a call from the HBO boss saying, ‘What can we do?’ And I was like, ‘Hmm…'” Cattrall said (via meeting). “Let me get creative and one of those things was getting Pat Field back because I just thought if I come back I have to come back with this Samantha style, I have to push it, and we did.”
Who is involved in Just Like That Season 2?
And Just Like That is written, directed and executive produced by Michael Patrick King. Executive producers Parker, Davis, Nixon, Julie Rottenberg, Elisa Zuritsky and John Melfi. The series will see the return of Sex and the City veterans Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis, who will also serve as executive producers.
