Sex and the City's Sarah Jessica Parker has responded to claims that she doesn't get along with her former co-star Kim Cattrall.

On Sunday (January 10), Parker shocked her Instagram followers by dropping a teaser for HBO Max's long-rumoured revival of the iconic TV series. Alongside the video, the actor – who plays Carrie Bradshaw – tagged co-stars Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon, but didn't mention Cattrall.

Cattrall has made it clear over the years that she's not interested in reprising her role as Samatha Jones, including saying during an appearance on Piers Morgan's Life Stories back in 2017 that she and Parker were "never friends" while filming the show, although Parker has always denied a feud between the two.

By not tagging Cattrall in the announcement for And Just Like That, Parker has confirmed that Cattrall will not be a part of the new project, and it prompted some SATC fans to speculate over why the original star won't be involved in the post's comments.

"She didn't tag [Kim's character] Samantha Jones," one fan wrote in the comments section, prompting another to add: "They dislike each other."

Sarah Jessica Parker then replied herself and dismissed the notion that she doesn't like her former co-star.

"No. I don't dislike her," Parker clapped back. "I've never said that. Never would. Samantha isn't part of this story. But she will always be a part of us. No matter where we are or what we do."

Airing between 1998 and 2004 – with two films following in 2008 and 2010 – Sex and the City was a hit HBO show based on Candace Bushnell's book of the same name.

It centred on writer Carrie and her three best friends, Samantha, Miranda Hobbes (Nixon) and Charlotte York (Davis), as they navigated romantic flings, long-term relationships and career opportunities in the Big Apple.

David Eigenberg, Willie Garson and Chris Noth also starred.

As it stands, very little is known about the new outing, other than the fact that Parker, Nixon and Davis will all be reprising their roles and that it's being simultaneously referred to as And Just Like That... and SATC: The Next Chapter in promos.
