Interest surrounding the SATC spinoff peaked in recent weeks, following the news that Kim Cattrall will return for a cameo in the upcoming second season of AJLT

Cattrall had previously stated that she would not reprise her role -- her last appearance in the franchise was for the second feature film in 2010. Per Variety, she shot just one scene for the cameo and filmed it in one day back in March. 

Slattery spoke to ET at the Maggie Moore(s) global premiere at the 2023 Tribeca Film Festival. Slattery directed the film, which stars John Hamm and Tina Fey

"You see how great they are together," Slattery said of the two stars, who are both close friends of his. "They've known each other for a long time, they're very comfortable with each other." 

Slattery added that Hamm was the one who suggested Fey for the role. "Hopefully they feel confident enough with me," he continued. "Everybody's relaxed and comfortable, and that's what you want to be able to do the best work." 

Maggie Moore(s) releases in theaters on June 16.
