    Much has been made of the fact that Samantha will not be appearing in And Just Like That…, the HBO Max reboot of Sex and the City, but luckily, the show will have a Samantha behind the scenes—Samantha Irby. In addition to her TV writing work, Irby has written four books, most recently Wow, No Thank You.

    Deadline announced today that Irby (along with Rachna Fruchbom, Keli Goff, Julie Rottenberg and Elisa Zuritsky, but they’ve never been featured on Literary Hub dot com, so we’re less interested in them, no offense) has joined the virtual writers’ room.

    I couldn’t help but wonder: despite the fact that the show will apparently be “addressing COVID,” will Samantha Irby’s writing make And Just Like That… the rare reboot I actually want to watch?
