Kim Cattrall, 64, has yet to make a public statement about the news of the series' revival, but she made her feelings about it perfectly clear with her reaction to the tweet, which praised the star for 'doing what is best for her'.
The tweet read: 'I absolutely love Sex and the City and whilst I am saddened that Samantha will not return, I applaud doing what is best for you and think this is great example of putting yourself first. Well done @KimCattrall.'
The news of the Sex and the City reboot was announced on Sunday, when Sarah Jessica Parker took to Instagram to share a teaser clip for the new series, which is called And Just Like That...
Fans were of course quick to note that the new poster for the show, did not include Kim Cattrall's sex-mad character Samantha Jones, reigniting long-running reports of bitter tension between the actress and her fellow castmates.
The rumors plagued the four women throughout much of their time filming - however each of the actresses shut down speculation of a rift time and time again. Since walking away from the role of Samantha once and for all however, Kim Cattrall has been much more open about the fact that she was 'never really friends' with any of her former castmates.
She also hit out at Sarah Jessica Parker, insisting that she 'could have been nicer' about Kim Cattrall's decision not to continue taking part in the popular franchise. Thus far, those involved in the Sex and the City reboot have remained mum about how it will address Samantha's absence, refusing to confirm whether the role will be re-cast.
