“We have New York City as the fourth character”, Parker said at the time, giving an answer that sounds a lot like me talking about Edith Wharton in a first year English class. “There will be a lot of interesting new characters that we’re excited about. “

No comment yet from Cattrall either – she hasn’t commented publicly on her absence from the reboot, and it’s unlikely to start now, but you can be sure she is. bubbling quietly somewhere as we speak.
