Fans have been treated to a surprise appearance in the finale episode of Sex and the City reboot, And Just Like That.

In episode 10 of the new series, Carrie decides now is the time to scatter Mr Big’s ashes, after her beloved husband died following an intense Peloton regime.

To explain Cattrall’s absence from the series, writers of And Just Like That explained that Samantha had moved to England to pursue her PR career.

While And Just Like That leaves the door wide open for a second season, a follow-ups series is yet to be commissioned.

Speaking to Variety with writer Michael Patrick King, SJP explained: “Michael and I spoke two weeks ago, and said: ‘OK, when are we going to talk about this?’

“Because there’s a calendar and you don’t want to let too much time pass. There feels like there’s momentum.”

And Just Like That is available to watch on Sky Comedy and NOW.
