Fans eager for Kim Cattrall to step into Samantha Jones’ shoes again later this summer can settle for now with a trailer for “Glamorous,” the Sex and the City icon’s upcoming Netflix series.
Glamorous, due for release on June 22, follows Marco Mejia (played by singer and YouTube star Miss Benny), a young queer and gender non-conforming person who takes a job working for world-renowned makeup artist Madoline Addison (Cattrall).
According to the press notes, Marco’s new role gives the character “a chance to figure out what he wants out of life, who he really is, and what being queer really means to him.” Of course, the trailer’s playful allusions to The Devil Wears Prada, Ugly Betty and, yes, Sex and the City are no doubt intentional.
In addition to Cattrall and Mejia, the “Glamorous” cast also includes Ayesha Harris, Graham Parkhurst, Jade Peyton, Zane Phillips and Michael Hsu Rosen.

The “Glamorous” trailer arrives less than a week after the bombshell news that Cattrall will reprise her role as Samantha Jones in Season 2 of “And Right,” Max’s rebooted “Sex and the City” series, which also premieres on the 22 June.
Cattrall played Samantha in all six seasons of Sex and the City, as well as the two feature films of the series. By 2017, however, she began to publicly express her disinterest in portraying the character again after the third film was scrapped amid reports of an off-screen feud with co-star Sarah Jessica Parker.
According to Variety , Cattrall’s appearance on And Just Like That will be limited to one scene in the season finale, in which Samantha has a phone conversation with Parker’s Carrie Bradshaw. Variety also noted that neither Parker nor series showrunner Michael Patrick King were on set when Cattrall filmed her scene, which reportedly took place in a town car in a New York parking lot.
Cattrall confirmed his cameo last week on social media with the cheeky note: “Congratulations Pride.”
