Oui oui! Can you picture Sex and the City's Samantha Jones setting the city of lights ablaze? Well, according to some Emily in Paris viewers, that move might be all we need.

Samantha Jones putting the sex back into another city? Excusez-moi?
Well, ever since the second season of Netflix's Emily in Paris—of which Lily Collins stars as its lead—hit the streaming service on Dec. 22, viewers have come up with a few different theories as to how Kim Cattrall's iconic Sex and the City character could possibly make her way onto the new show.
If you're wondering about what the two shows have in common, let's not forget that they were both created by director Darren Star. And not only did Samantha Jones pack up and move to London, as explained in the HBO Max reboot, And Just Like That—but Emily's love interest this season (spoiler!) also moves to London. So, all the cues for a little crossover don't seem too far-fetched, after all.
As one viewer, TV critic Jen Chaney, tweeted all the way at the top of this year: "Current theory: Samantha has supposedly moved overseas, hence her lack of presence in the new SATC TV series. Then she shows up by total surprise in a crossover episode of EMILY IN PARIS. I would watch Samantha try to tolerate Emily, 100 percent."

Fast-forward to now and that theory has grown exponentially.

On Dec. 29, one viewer tweeted, "It would be wild if Emily went to see Alfie in London and ran into Samantha Jones." Another wrote, "pitch: Emily is over Paris and moves to London to work for Samantha Jones PR."
It's worth noting that neither Cattrall nor Star have responded to the too-good-to-be-true rumors quite yet.

Funny enough, Samantha Jones also wouldn't be the first outside character fans have been hoping to pop into Emily's Parisian picture. As a reminder, You's Joe Goldberg (Penn Badgley) ended his rollercoaster of a season by taking up a new identity in the city of lights, too—leading some viewers to hope for a thrilling boy-meets-new girl run-in.
Oui, oui, we shall see.
