‘Sex And The City – Just Like That’ picks up Caitlyn Jenner in place of Kim Cattrall
News is doing the circles that Caitlyn Jenner, the former athlete and KUWTK star, is being offered a cameo in the hit show. “Mirror UK” wrote that ‘Sex And The City’ will fulfil the demands of modern society and will try to boost the diversity of the show. To achieve this, the makers are doing everything they can to make the show more inclusive.
Even though it is tough to replace Kim as Samantha, Caitlyn, who is a transgender, would be a perfect fit. Everyone on the show thinks she’s really perfect for an appearance, and according to an inside source from HBO, Caitlyn has been in the news on and off for over 50 years. Cynthia Nixon confessed, in an interview last year, that the lack of diversity in ‘Sex And The City’ “troubled” her. Caitlyn is somebody people love and admire and somehow her kind of attitude defines New York and ‘Sex And The City’.

But, why is Kim Cattrall out from the reboot despite great performances? Well, the rumours of a rivalry between actresses Sarah Jessica Parker (Carrie Bradshaw) and Kim Cattrall (Samantha) have been the talk of the town for a decade. Cattrall played Samantha Jones in the 2010 film ‘Sex And The City 2‘ but gave hints that something is wrong. She made frequent mention that she did not want to take part in another series or movie on ‘Sex And The City’. Kim said she’s “never been friends” with her ‘Sex And The City’ co-stars, in October 2017 when she appeared on Piers Morgan’s show. She added, “We’ve been colleagues and, in some way, it’s a very healthy place to be“.
Opportunity in rivalry
‘Sex And The City’ and other series and the films of those times receive harsh criticism for their lack of diversity. Considering that all the main characters were white women, ‘Sex And The City’ franchise will focus more on inclusivity. Though Kim is out due to her own reasons, ‘Sex And The City’ will take this as an opportunity to diversify their cast.
According to the “The Mail”, two new characters, a black woman and an Asian woman would enter the plot.
“Samantha will not be returning, but we are introducing two new characters, strong and courageous women, who will help introduce the program to a new generation of viewers and more accurately reflect the world in which we live.”
Other news talked about the famous reality TV star will join the cast. And Caitlyn Jenner’s name is on the frontline. The former athlete and model is one of the most highly rated people up for consideration, according to “The Mirror”.
