The new show premiered earlier this month, without Kim Cattrall's character Samantha Jones, but it seems the group could have potentially lost Miranda too.

"It was a very hard decision," Nixon told News Corp Australia Network, per the Herald Sun. "I really didn’t think I was going to do it — I was very reluctant."

The 55-year-old explained that the more she spoke to costars Sarah Jessica Parker and Kristin Davis, as well as showrunner Michael Patrick King "about the things that I couldn’t go back without — a real sea change in terms of the lack of diversity in the original series, they were on board."

"I was floored by how hard everybody listened, and how collaboratively we worked together to, not just redecorate the house, but to build a whole new house — that had us in it but new characters, too," she gushed.

The new show has seen the introduction of more diverse characters. In particular, Miranda seems to warm up to non-binary comedian Che Diaz, who is played by Sara Ramirez, after the characters had a rocky introduction.

"I’m very proud of the original series — despite it being occasionally tone deaf on race and gender — and being Miranda has opened up so many amazing roles for me over the years, but the further I get away from Miranda, the better they get, because people have stopped thinking of me as just that one character," Nixon told the publication. "But Sex and the City gave me an adult career. And I’ll always be grateful for that."

There has been speculation about the future of Miranda's relationship with her husband Steve [David Eigenberg] in the new show. "I think this season is all about change for her," writer Elisa Zuritsky previously told TVLine.

King added that Miranda felt "trapped" at this point in her life: "Even within the group, she was the one who was the least successful at dating. She was the one who was the most angry at society. So Miranda’s always been somebody who went her own way," he explained.
