The four-time Golden Globe winner recently promised fans a new SATC adaptation that properly reflects the times we live in.

She confirmed that the HBO Max miniseries will address the COVID-19 pandemic and the effect it has had on the show’s iconic setting of New York City.

Sarah said that the pandemic will ‘obviously be part of the storyline, because that’s the city [these characters] live in.

‘And how has that changed relationships once friends disappear? I have great faith that the writers are going to examine it all.’

She added: ‘I think that Cynthia [Nixon], Kristin [Davis], and I are all excited about the time that has passed. You know, who are they in this world now? Have they adapted? What part have they played? 

‘Where have they fallen short as women, as friends, and how are they finding their way? Did they move with momentum? Are they like some people who are confused, threatened, nervous [by what’s happening in the world]? I’m so curious and excited to see how the writers imagine these women today.’

It comes after reports that Caitlyn Jenner is in talks to appear in the highly-anticipated reboot, amid efforts to make the new installment more inclusive.

The I Am Cait star, 71, is reportedly at the top of the list of potential cameos for the reboot, according to The Mirror.

Jenner, who’s appeared in the 1980 film Can’t Stop the Music and the classic cop show CHiPs, has recently gotten back into acting with the upcoming indie sitcom Duke of the Valley, based on Dick Van Patten’s memoirs.

A source said: ‘Caitlyn has been a media fixture in one way or another for going on 50 years. She’s really perfect for an appearance. They want new faces for the show, but they want people viewers actually know and care about too.’

It comes after an insider told The Mail On Sunday: ‘Samantha isn’t coming back but we are introducing two new characters, strong and feisty women of color, who will help introduce the show to a new generation of viewers and more accurately reflect the world we live in.’ 

Although the iconic HBO series and its subsequent spinoffs have been beloved by fans for decades, some of its material hasn’t aged well. 

Sarah addressed the show’s mostly white cast to The Hollywood Reporter in September of 2018: ‘You couldn’t make it today because of the lack of diversity on screen. I personally think it would feel bizarre.’

She said of a potential reboot with a new cast: ‘It wouldn’t be a reboot as I understand it. If you came back and did six episodes, you’d have to acknowledge the city is not hospitable to those same ideas. 

‘You’d look like you were generationally removed from reality, but it would be certainly interesting to see four diverse women experiencing NYC their way… It would be interesting and very worthwhile exploring, but it couldn’t be the same.’ 

No replacement: She recently clarified that there will not be a fourth main character replacing Kim Cattrall's Samantha Jones, after the British actress refused to return to the franchise (pictured in May, 2008)

She recently clarified that there will not be a fourth main character replacing Kim Cattrall’s Samantha Jones, after the British actress refused to return to the franchise.

In perfect Carrie Bradshaw fashion, she told YouTuber Adam Glyn: ‘We’re not looking to create a fourth character, we have New York City as a fourth character and it will be an interesting new character that we are excited about.’ 

Candace Bushnell, 62, who wrote the 1996 book on which the show is based, said the new instalment work without Samantha, recently telling Page Six: ‘You know what, I think it’s fine. Kim is a grown woman. She is 64 and she’s made a decision that I’m sure she has 10 very good reasons for and I respect her for that.’

She added: ‘Kim should be happy — and I think she is happy. I think that her character Samantha is always going to be an inspiration to them. So somehow, I imagine she’ll be there in spirit and as an inspiration that gives them a chance of exploring sexuality with different characters.’
