Sorry if this is as misogynistic as comparing one big pop girl's album to another, but I'm sure this will be tailored perfectly to straight white women, when if they had any sense they would tailor it to gays.

Couldn't they just cast the one who played Samantha in The Carrie Diaries, have a character mutter something about an "amazing surgeon", and continue onwards?

I only really watched every single episode and bought the box sets for Kim AND New York. I'll try, but I doubt I'll care.

Samantha NOT DEAD it seems

But how will the show explain the absence of one of the show’s core four? Star Sarah Jessica Parker and writer Michael Patrick King are the creative forces behind the sequel, and “they’re not trying to re-do Sex and the City,” HBO Max chief content officer Casey Bloys emphasizes to TVLine. “They’re not trying to say that these characters are reliving their 30s. It is very much a story about women in their 50s, and they are dealing with things that people deal with in their 50s.”

To that end, “just as in real life, people come into your life, people leave,” Bloys continues. “Friendships fade, and new friendships start. So I think it is all very indicative of the real stages, the actual stages of life… They’re trying to tell an honest story about being a woman in her 50s in New York. So it should all feel somewhat organic, and the friends that you have when you’re 30, you may not have when you’re 50.

I think that is the right call - Samantha being dead would feel wrong, like killing off Edie in DH was clearly a huge error of judgment (/act of revenge driven by a toxic showrunner).

Wasn’t she living in Malibu in the last film anyway? You would’ve thought they’d got the hint when she moved 3000 miles away.
