The actor is to play a small part in the series, recording some dialogue for a phone call that will play out between Carrie Bradshaw (played by Sarah Jessica Parker) and Samantha, according to Variety.

Samantha’s phone call is to come in a “cliffhanger” scene.

Cattrall’s part in the series has been kept so under wraps that her name never appeared on the call sheet – surprising even those working on it, according to the outlet.

The scene was reportedly filmed in a parking garage in Queens, New York.

Notably, the actors are currently not on speaking terms, with Cattrall having previously spoken out on the rift.

In the plot of the spinoff, Samantha jetted off to London for work, explaining her absence from the group.

Cattrall her co-stars Parker, Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon all became TV icons on the original run of the series from 1998 to 2004.

When the controversy first arose about Cattrall not returning to season one of the spinoff, Cattrall liked a tweet rather than addressing the matter.

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.”

Cattrall has said for years that she was not keen to do a Sex And The City revival.

Speaking out about Samantha’s absence in season one, Parker said that “Samantha’s not gone, Samantha’s present and I think was handled with such respect and grace,” she told Variety in 2022.

“She wasn’t villainised. She was a human being who had feelings about a relationship, so I think we found a way to address it which was necessary and important for people that loved her.”

The spin-off revolves around Carrie (Parker), Miranda (Nixon), and Charlotte (Davis) navigating life in their 50s.

Season two of And Just Like That will return to Binge in Australia on June 22.
