Unless you've been living under a rock, you probably know a SATC spin-off is coming to us. But sadly, And Just Like That... won't include our favorite PR powerhouse, Samantha Jones. For now, that is. "We'll announce eventually that the show will have a second season. This isn't a one-off; this will be a series," an insider reportedly told And more episodes mean more time for Kim Cattrall to change her mind about rejoining her on-screen fam.

The insider allegedly continued, "We all miss Kim, and we hope she comes back for the second season - the door will never close on her; she is an important part of the franchise." So how did the And Just Like That producers address Ms. Jones' absence in Season One? Warning: spoilers ahead.

"We get into her absence very quickly," the insider reportedly divulged. "Viewers will learn that Samantha and Carrie have fallen out over Carrie firing Samantha as her publicist and that they no longer talk. This effectively ends their personal relationship." But the kind of love between Jones and Bradshaw doesn't disappear just like that (we had to).

"You'll see as the series progresses over the ten episodes that Carrie misses her friend and wants to repair the relationship," the insider added. "In the words of Oscar Wilde, 'Life imitates art.'" Yeah - they went there. It looks like the series' writers might've taken inspiration from SJP and Kim's real-life feud.

But while the two NYC icons might have some beef between them, the insider clarified that Cattrall had been deeply missed during the filming of And Just Like That... "Onset, Kim has been missed by everyone. The cast and crew love her and hope she returns," they said.

While the HBO franchise has yet to confirm the insider's comments publically, we just can't help but keep our hopes up for the highly-anticipated return of Samantha Jones. And in the meantime, we'll be over here obsessing over SJP's style evolution, from pre-SATC to now.
