According to Variety, sources told the entertainment outlet that Cattrall shot her dialogue on March 22 in New York City without seeing or speaking with the stars of the series, including Sarah Jessica Parker, or with the showrunner Michael Patrick King. FOX Television Stations reached out to Cattrall's reps for comment.
The news comes as a major surprise to many fans after Cattrall had made it clear in several interviews that she was done playing Samantha, and in 2017, she turned down a script for the third "Sex and the City" movie.
In an interview for Variety’s Power of Women issue, the actor, who previously said she had not watched "And Just Like That …," shared her thoughts on why exactly she walked away from one of TV’s biggest phenomena.
"It’s a great wisdom to know when enough is enough," Cattrall said. "I also didn’t want to compromise what the show was to me. The way forward seemed clear."
"Sex and the City" started as a television show in 1998 and ran until 2004 on HBO. The four best friends reunited for two films, released in 2008 and 2010.
