And with that, Samantha Jones made her comeback. Well, nearly. The Sex and the City follow-up series gave viewers a nostalgic tease in advance of Kim Cattrall’s anticipated arrival in the current second season of And Just Like That. The actress’s face was first seen on the new program in the most recent episode, which debuted on Max Aug. 2, when her character appeared in a throwback photo of pals with Carrie Bradshaw played by Sarah Jessica Parker, Miranda Hobbes played by Cynthia Nixon, and Charlotte York Goldenblatt played by Kristin Davis.
The latter looks through a collection of images and discovers the image—a genuine Sex and the City publicity photo. After Variety claimed that Cattrall had only shot one scene for the finale—and without engaging with the cast—she revealed in June that she will temporarily reprise her S*x and the City role in the current second season of And Just Like That.
Later, the actress revealed on Today that she just spent four hours filming her appearance. She also said she wouldn’t be returning to the NBC program, telling co-hosts Hoda Kotb and Jenna Bush Hager, “This is as far as I’m gonna go.” Parker, who has also teased some information on Cattrall’s former costar’s brief return, had long been thought to be at odds with Cattrall.
News of her cameo broke during this time. She said to E! News in June, “The idea developed because of the 25 years and wanting to commemorate that, but also acknowledge the affection that we had for Samantha—that we still have. “It just seemed such a nice way to put a face to the text, and just have a moment,” she said.

“She’s been on the show in text form.” To E! News, Nixon characterized the visit as a “very small wave at the fans kind of appearance.” She continued, “I’m so sorry the surprise was blown, but hopefully people will still enjoy it.” Every Wednesday night on Max, new episodes of And Just Like That season two are broadcast.
