The Sex and the City reboot is currently in production and filming is taking place in New York City. However, a viral TikTok has sent rumours flying about the fate of fan favourite Samantha Jones.
The 10-part series titled And Just Like That, will see the majority of the original cast return - including Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis.
However, Kim Cattrall previously confirmed she was not reprising her role as Samantha Jones, the beloved PR executive. How the show would address her absence was up in the air, but after the evidence in this clip, fans are convinced they now know her fate.
In the TikTok there are over a dozen extras on the Sex and the City set all dressed in black mourning attire– almost like they are attending a funeral…
TikTok user @Klinetime narrates, ‘I was walking down the street in New York City and saw a huge crowd and realized they were filming for Sex And The City. But everyone was wearing all black. Is it for Samantha's funeral?’
Fans were devastated as they put two and two together and speculated that the funeral is for Samantha Jones.
But we must remember, nothing has been confirmed and this is all speculation. What we know for certain is the revival will ‘Follow Carrie, Miranda and Charlotte as they navigate the journey from the complicated reality of life and friendship in their 30s to the even more complicated reality of life and friendship in their 50s.’
The Sex And The City production team previously framed Samantha Jones absence as a natural drift from friends Carrie, Miranda and Charlotte.
HBO chief content officer Casey Bloys said, ‘Just as in real life, people come into your life, people leave’. He continued, ‘Friendship’s fade, and new friendships start. So, I think it is all very indicative of the real stages, the actual stages of life.”
Sex And The City fans will have to wait a while longer to learn who the funeral is being held for, or if there even is a funeral at all..
