Kim and her co-stars Sarah Jessica Parker, Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon all became TV icons on the original run of the series from 1998 to 2004.
Afterward Kim appeared in both of the movie adaptations – including the critically panned sequel that featured Liza Minnelli singing Beyonce’s song Single Ladies.
Sarah Jessica however has remained publicly open to the idea of a reunion for some time and this Sunday it was announced that the project is going ahead.
Fans were of course quick to note that the new poster for the show, which is called And Just Like That…, did not include Kim’s sex-mad character Samantha Jones.

When one Instagram commenter suggested Jennifer Coolidge be cast as Samantha, Sarah Jessica wrote vaguely: ‘We have some new stories to tell. We are excited.’
She clarified in another comment: ‘No, I don’t dislike her. I’ve never said that. Never would. Samantha isn’t part of this story. But she will always be part of us. No matter where we are or what we do. X.’
She also expressed her regard for Kim as when another commenter wrote they ‘will miss Kim/Samantha,’ Sarah Jessica replied: ‘we will too. We loved her so.’
The original series created by Darren Star, and adapted from a column by Candace Bushnell, ran on HBO and so the revival will have a home on HBO Max.

‘This isn’t about more money. It’s not about more scenes. It’s not about any of those things. This is about a clear decision, an empowered decision in my life, to end one chapter and start another. I’m 61. It’s now. The other girls are 10 years younger than me, you know, and that is their choice,’ said Kim.

Although Sarah Jessica has denied feud rumors, Kim said her old co-star ‘could have been nicer’ and that their rapport was only ever professional.
After Kim’s younger brother Chris committed suicide in 2018, his grief-stricken sister was not moved by Sarah Jessica’s condolences.
‘My Mom asked me today “When will that @sarahjessicaparker, that hypocrite, leave you alone?” Your continuous reaching out is a painful reminder of how cruel you really were then and now,’ wrote Kim on Instagram.
‘Let me make this VERY clear. (If I haven’t already). You are not my family. You are not my friend. So I’m writing to tell you one last time to stop exploiting our tragedy in order to restore your “nice girl” persona.’

Near the conclusion of the show’s run a show told Page Six that Kim’s three main co-stars would not speak to her ‘even in the makeup room.’
