Caitlyn Jenner is reportedly one of the top choices for a cameo in the upcoming ‘Sex and the City’ revival after bosses have been looking for ways to make the show more ‘diverse’.

Sex and the City fans may be seeing Caitlyn Jenner, 71, on their screens soon. The transgender icon is at the top of the list for a cameo role in the popular show’s future reboot, according to The Mirror. The outlet claims the consideration is there because the people in charge are trying to make the show more diverse after the original series and films were criticized for not being inclusive.

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

The news about Caitlyn comes a week after the Sex and the City revival was announced. The exciting new installment, which is taking place over 20 years since the original series debuted, will feature ten episodes on HBO Max and will feature three of the four actresses, including Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis. Sarah confirmed that Kim Cattrall, who played Samantha Jones on the series, will not be returning for the revival but also revealed there’s no hard feelings between them.

“No. I don’t dislike her. I’ve never said that. Never would. Samantha isn’t part of this story. But she will always be part of us. No matter where we are or what we do,” she wrote in response to a fan who brought Kim up on Instagram.

The original Sex and the City series ran for six seasons with a total of 94 episodes from 1998 until 2004 and was followed up with two feature films in 2008 and 2010. All four ladies from the show reunited in Apr. 2020 to celebrate New York’s healthcare workers amid the COVID-19 pandemic and although rumors about a third movie started to swirl, they turned out not to be true. “There will be no progress on a third Sex And The City with the ladies because there is still lots of animosity between them all,” an insider EXCLUSIVELY told HollywoodLife at the time.

“Kim has moved on and is very excited for her new FOX show and sees her career taking a completely different look moving forward,” the insider continued. “There were wonderful times and not so wonderful times with Sex and the same issues still stand between Kim and Sarah so it is best to leave the past the past. They all know they will forever be linked to the show and each other but they also know when it is time to move on and now is that time.”

Almost a year later, it’s great to know things have changed and at least three of the ladies are back on board!

Sex & The City revival is officially happening! The show’s original stars Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon, and Kristin Davis confirmed that their iconic characters will return to our screens for a ten-episode limited series at HBO Max, with filming scheduled to begin in the Spring of 2021. Titled And Just Like That…, the show will follow Carrie Bradshaw, Miranda Hobbes, and Charlotte York as they navigate the complicated reality of life and friendship in their 50s. Kim Cattrall, who did not post about the revival on her social media accounts, will not return to play Samantha Jones.

“I couldn’t hep but wonder… where are they now?,” SJP captioned her Instagram clip announcing the revival. “2021 LOOKING UP,” Andy Cohen wrote, while one fan commented, “Shut up!!!!!! Omg the heavens have parted if this means what I think!!!” The original series ran for six seasons with 94 episodes airing between 1998 and 2004. It was followed by two feature films in 2008 and 2010. Although there were initially plans for a third installment, Kim Catrall’s longstanding tension with Sarah Jessica Parker was part of the reason she did not want to return.

Reports of a SATC reboot first surfaced in late 2020, however many fans expressed their disappointment that the iconic Samantha Jones would not be returning. “Kim Cattrall playing Samantha is the only reason to watch [Sex & The City],” one fan shared on Twitter. “There is no Sex and the City without [Kim Cattrall]. Don’t get it twisted,” another fan said on the social media platform.

Kim later appeared on the December 22 episode of Women’s Prize for Fiction podcast, where she reiterated why she never intended to return for a third film after Sex & The City 2. “I remember getting a lot of grief on social media for not wanting to do a film. It was astonishing some of the things people wrote to me — ‘I work in a bank and I don’t like this person and I don’t like the hours, but I do it. So you just do it!’” Kim revealed. “Give me what I want. I do it. I’m miserable, you be miserable too.”
