Kim’s conditions for return
Now, it has been revealed that Kim has secretly filmed a cliffhanger episode for the upcoming spinoff season 2 of And Just Like That. Kim had not appeared for the first season of the spinoff, so the news came as a shock to everyone on set. Now according to sources reported by Page Six, it has been revealed that the actor had some specific demands in place. “Kim had two stipulations -—one, that she would not act with any of the other girls, and two, she did not want to see Michael Patrick King.” said a source.
Additionally, the actor who had a fall out with Sarah during the filming of Sex and the City years ago, is said to have received huge compensation amount for her return to the show. “She will have gotten a s–tload of money. It just shows the power of Kim. They still need her on the show. But even though this may get fans thinking she’ll be back for the next season, she’ll never do that. She was treated poorly. I’m glad she gets to be the hero … I’m sure it took a lot of massaging to make the cameo happen.” the source revealed.
And Just Like That Season 2 premieres Thursday, June 22, on Max.
