She spoke to The Daily back in 2019 and said that she has no intention of reprising the role of Samantha Jones as it is a big no for her. Earlier talking about the third movie, the actress also said, “You learn lessons in life and my lesson is to do work with good people and try and make it fun. I hate to be a spoilsport, but what would the next story be? Whether you liked it or not, the reality is, authentically, there were no alternative facts here! — there was a backlash. The reality of what a third movie would be is that there’s nothing concrete.”

Kim also revealed that the team anyway wanted to cast a non-white actress for the SATC reboot. Kim said “It’s a great part. I played it past the finish line and then some, and I loved it. And another actress should play it. Maybe they could make it an African-American Samantha Jones, or a Hispanic Samantha Jones.” But are we ready to accept a new Samantha Jones?
