She's finally willing to be in a situation, but only for one scene. In a surprise turn of events, Kim Cattrall, who has gone on record discussing her lack of interest in appearing in And Just Like That..., is officially set to reprise her role as Samantha Jones in Season 2.

On May 31, the shock of the century came when it was announced that Kim Cattrall will reprise her role as Samantha Jones in And Just Like That... Season 2. She'll reportedly appear in exactly one scene in the season finale.
"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 And Just Like That showrunner Michael Patrick King," variety reported.
Patricia Field, the iconic Sex and the City costume designer who has not been working on And Just Like That..., dressed Cattrall for her scene, which will apparently show Samantha having a phone conversation (from London!) with Carrie.
