Fans Pitch a 'SATC' and 'Emily in Paris' Crossover
| LAST UPDATE 01/02/2022
Twitter: the gift that keeps on giving. We can bet on the Twitterverse to provide us with the best reactions whenever something happens in pop culture. And with a Sex and the City and Emily in Paris crossover just rumored, you can bet the online world has some good ideas to pitch. Here's what all of the hype is about.
The SATC reboot hit our screens just in time for the holidays, but there was one beloved face who didn't make a comeback: Kim Cattrall as Samantha Jones. The show creators wrote the iconic character out of the And Just Like That... script since Cattrall chose not to return to the show. Following a fallout with Carrie, Samantha has moved from NYC to London. "Sending [Samantha] to Los Angeles wasn't an option as we'd done that in the first movie, so having her character based in London really was the perfect way to keep her alive and explain her absence," crew members explained.
And now, that little twist in the SATC world has fans dreaming of a crossover with Emily in Paris. The hit Netflix series just aired its second season, and (spoiler alert) the finale has audiences thinking our girl Emily might be preparing for another European move. And fans of both shows are hoping that Lily Collin's character finds herself in - you guessed it - London, Samantha Jones' new home.
"Pitch: Emily is over Paris and moves to London to work for Samantha Jones PR," one user tweeted. Someone else added, "It would be wild if Emily went to see Alfie in London and ran into Samantha Jones #EmilyInParis."
Some diehard fans ditched the crossover altogether and pitched another SATC spin-off centering around Samantha. "Watching Emily In Paris just makes me want Samantha In London," read one such tweet. Sadly for all of us into this idea, the suggestions are so far limited to Twitter as neither Lily Collins nor Kim Cattrall has spoken out on the matter. But there's still reason to have hope: Darren Star is the creative mind behind both series, so the stars might just align after all...
