Kim Cattrall may not be reuniting with her Sex and the City co-stars for HBO Max's forthcoming reboot, but she does have a string of projects in the works.

Peacock has announced the beloved actress has joined the cast of its upcoming Queer as Folk reboot.

Cattrall will play a martini-soaked, high society southern debutant with trailer park roots, according to the streaming service.

While the actress is not a series regular, she has been billed as a recurring guest star, meaning she will pop up sporadically throughout the first season of the show.

The new take "is a vibrant reimagining of the groundbreaking British series created by Russell T. Davies, exploring a diverse group of friends in New Orleans whose lives are transformed in the aftermath of a tragedy," according to the streamer.

Cattrall joins a cast that already includes the following stars:

- Devin Way (he/him) (Grey’s Anatomy, Station 19) will play a charming and sometimes chaotic commitment-phobe who finds a reason to stay in New Orleans after tragedy rocks his community.

- Jesse James Keitel (she/her) (Big Sky), who will play a trans, semi-reformed party girl who is struggling to grow up.

- ​Candace Grace (they/them) (Acts of Crime) will play a non-binary professor navigating the rocky transition from punk to parenthood.

- Johnny Sibilly (he/him) (Hacks, Pose) will play a successful lawyer who is not as put together as he seems. ​

- Ryan O’Connell (he/him) (Special, Will & Grace) will play a pop culture nerd with cerebral palsy who is more than ready for some independence.
