So where is Samantha Jones?
After DailyMail.com revealed that Kim Cattrall’s character has not been killed off of the Sex and the City reboot, insiders now tell us that they’ve moved Samantha Jones to London.
‘We couldn’t have Samantha roaming around New York City and not have the other women (Charlotte and Miranda) not interacting with her. It just wouldn’t have made sense,’ show sources tell DailyMail.com.
‘Sending her to Los Angeles wasn’t an option as we’d done that in the first movie, so having her character based in London really was the perfect way to keep her alive and explain her absence.’
‘Viewers will learn that she is thriving in England even though she has fallen out with Carrie.’

The insider revealed that at the end of the season Carrie will make a grand gesture to get Samantha back.
‘Carrie is the one who has the tough time without Samantha and by the end of ”And Just Like That” you’ll see Carrie extend the olive branch and try and rekindle the friendship,’ they said.

Now sources tell us, ‘We have high hopes that by the time we begin filming the second season, Kim will have joined the show and Samantha Jones can make a triumphant return to the big apple.’
‘We want Kim back. She was missed on set. We all understand why she feels the way she does. We get it. We just want her to come back for future seasons.’
The source said the reboot has been a ‘special project to film’ and predict it ‘can go on for many many years and we’d love for Kim to be a part of it.’
‘Samantha Jones is one of television’s all time much loved characters and Kim is a phenomenal actress who brings her to life perfectly. She needs to come home, if not for us, but for the fans that adore her.’
The insiders said the writers have left the plot open for Cattrall’s return.
‘We’ll announce eventually that the show will have a second season. This isn’t a one off, this will be a series,’ they said.
‘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.
