Sex and the City fans have reacted in horror over rumours that the show is set to kill off Kim Cattrall's character, Samantha Jones, in the upcoming reboot.

Those fears were compounded online when a TikToker posted a video showing funeral scenes being filmed for the show in New York.

“Is it for Samantha’s funeral,” a caption in the video reads.

Fans were quick to air their disgust, with one person writing: “Nooo they can’t kill Samantha”.

Another fan of the show wrote: “Without Samantha I will pass.”

However, others were certain that it was Mr. Big’s funeral that was being filmed, saying they believe his character dies in the first episode, as he was supposed to be killed off in SATC 3 the movie.

“Mr. Big was supposed to die of a heart attack in the 3rd movie, which never happened. They might have gone in a different direction for the new show.”

“I think it’s Big. He died and Carrie finds out he’s still paying alimony to Carrie,” another person speculated.

The photos come after it was confirmed a major cast member will be killed off in the reboot.

The original show aired on HBO for six seasons from 1998 to 2004 and followed best friends Carrie Bradshaw (Parker), Miranda Hobbs (Cynthia Nixon), Samantha Jones (Kim Cattrall) and Charlotte York (Kristin Davis) las they went about their lives in New York.

The show led to two films, Sex and the City in 2008 and then Sex and the City 2 in 2010, although the second movie was panned by critics, it still earned $378 million worldwide.

A script was created for a third movie, but Kim famously decided she didn't want to be part of it and so it was scrapped.

The actress has been vocal about being done with the franchise. When Sarah announced the revival, she added that she would miss Kim on set.

A fan commented on the announcement: "She didn't tag Samantha Jones," with another replying: "They dislike each other," however, Sarah quickly responded: "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 a part of us. No matter where we are or what we do. X."

Kim told the Daily Mail in 2019 she would "never" work on the franchise again, adding: "You learn lessons in life and my lesson is to do work with good people and try and make it fun."

As for the rest of the cast, they're very excited with Sarah telling TMZ: "[We’re] shooting it in a city that we love and hoping to be part of a city that’s able to support artists and culture and institutions that have been closed down and the businesses that have been hurt [during COVID-19]."

Fan favourite John Corbett, who starred on the show as Aidan has hinted to Page Six he "might be in quite a few" of the new episodes and it's believed Chris Noth will return as Mr Big.
