UPDATE: Why star in one new series when you can star in two?
On Tuesday, Nov. 9, it was announced that Kim Cattrall will be joining Peacock's Queer as Folk as a recurring guest star. Production is currently underway in New Orleans, Louisiana for the reimagined drama based on Russell T. Davies' British series. Created and written by Stephen Dunn and executive produced by Jaclyn Moore, the show will also star Grey's Anatomy's Devin Way, along with Fin Argus, Jesse James Keitel, Candace Grace, Johnny Sibilly and Ryan O'Connell.
Per her official role description, Cattrall will play "a martini-soaked, high society southern debutant with trailer park roots."
Goodbye, Samantha; hello, Sophie!
Turns out Kim Cattrall will be back on our television screens this winter after all. On Nov. 5, Deadline announced that Cattrall will be joining the cast of Hulu's new spinoff show, How I Met Your Father, as the future version of Hilary Duff's character, Sophie. Like Ted Mosby (Josh Radnor) in How I Met Your Mother, Sophie is telling her son the story of how she met his father. Cattrall, who made headlines earlier this year when it was announced that she wouldn't be returning to the Sex and The City's cast for the spin-off, will parallel Bob Saget, who played the older Ted.
Sophie transports back to 2021, where she and her "close-knit group of friends are in the midst of figuring out who they are, what they want out of life, and how to fall in love in the age of dating apps and limitless options," according to Hulu's description of the show.
We wonder if Sophie is more of a Tinder, Hinge or Bumble kind of girl.
Cattrall posted an Instagram on Nov. 5 to announce the exciting news. "So thrilled to be joining the cast of How I Met Your Father ….. @hulu," she wrote.
Cattrall isn't the only exciting addition to the cast. Along with Duff, the SATC actress will be joining The Secret Life of the American Teenager's Francia Raisa, Chris Lowell, Tom Ainsley, Tien Tran and Suraj Sharma, who will all be playing Sophie's friends.
HIMYM creators and executive producers Craig Thomas and Carter Bays and producer Pam Fryman are back for the new series, which began filming in August. Duff produces and Love, Simon writers, Isaac Aptaker and Elizabeth Berger are series writers.
Are we ecstatic to hear Cattrall is back on TV? Abso-f--king-lutely.
