Kim Cattrall is moving on from the drama surrounding the newest installment of the Sex and The City franchise which executives officially canceled. The actress, 61, recently revealed that she didn’t want to reprise her role as Samantha Jones on the HBO series.
One commenter wrote, “@Kim Cattrall, So I’ve seen you doing interviews on ageism yet I see you on Instagram saying you too old to play Samantha? I’m so confused.”
As a response, she wrote, “I’ve played “Sam” for twenty years. I’m moving on and so should you,” while simultaneously recommending the fan in question to watch her new show called, “Sensitive Skin,” which is on Netflix.
Dear fans, because I'm "toxic", I'm going to negotiate a contract for 6 months, not come to terms, then say I never wanted to do it anyway.

As you may already know, Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall, the rest of the cast and crew, along with the Warner Brothers studios planned to make a sequel to the last installment of the legendary series but canceled it due to Kim Cattrall not wanting to return.
In response to an article which claimed she made outrageous demands that executives couldn’t meet, Kim said the only request she ever made was to not return for the film, and that was way back in 2016.
However, the studio has yet to comment on the issue. In a new interview, Cattrall said the controversy surrounding her lack of desire to come back was similar to a “toxic relationship.”
With that said, her other former co-stars don’t seem to agree, as Sarah Jessica Parker and Kristin Davis both seemed genuinely disappointed that the third movie wouldn’t happen. Willie Garson weighed in as well by mocking Kim’s choice of words, “Dear fans, because I’m ‘toxic,’ I’m going to negotiate a contract for six months, not come to terms, then say I never wanted to do it anyway.” It appears as though Willie is not too fond of Kim’s decision!
