And with that, the Sex and the City reboot comes to a conclusion. Towards the end of the year 2021, the fabulous trio – Carrie, Miranda, and Charlotte – returned to the show. If you thought they were out of control in their 30s and 40s, you haven’t had a chance to get to know them when they are in their fifties.
There was significantly less sexual content this time around, but that doesn’t mean they weren’t able to generate some excitement, and no, we’re not just talking about the double-penis surprise in the eighth episode of the season.
While Samantha was stuck in London, missing out on all the fun, the girls had to deal with death, relationship upheaval, death, sexual exploration, death, new friendships, and, did we mention, death?
Our New York gal pals have embarked on an entirely new adventure, complete with all of the drama we’ve come to expect from them. But we couldn’t help but wonder if this is the last time we’ll see them in action together.

And Just Like That…’ Season 2 Release Date
You’ll be equally disappointed to learn that the decision on whether to air a second season has not been made, whether you’re eagerly anticipating it or relieved to have this reboot put to rest. HBO Max has not yet stated which way the tide will turn, but negotiations are underway, and it appears that lead actress Sarah Jessica Parker is interested. When asked if she would consider a reboot, Parker responded in the following way:
“Without a doubt, yes. ‘Okay, when are we going to talk about this?’ Michael and I discussed it two weeks ago and agreed on a date. Because there’s a clock on the wall and you don’t want to waste any more time than necessary. It appears that there is forward movement.”
It’s unlikely that the team will decide to move forward with another season anytime soon, as Parker admitted to Variety that scheduling conflicts could cause a snag in the production schedule.
But don’t get your pitchforks and pitchforks and pitchforks ready just yet. First and foremost, let’s get that all-important renewal confirmation out of the way.
And Just Like That…’ Season 2 Cast
If and when And Just As That returns, it’s almost impossible to imagine the show continuing without Sarah Jessica Parker as Carrie, Cynthia Nixon as Miranda, and Kristin Davis as Charlotte.
We can cross our fingers and hope against hope that Kim Cattrall will reprise her role as Samantha Jones, but we wouldn’t put our money on it, to be completely honest with you.
When asked if the door was open for her return and if she would ever return, executive producer Michael Patrick King responded as follows (as reported by Variety):
“No. Just as there was no expectation that Kim would ever take part in And Just Like That because she had said what she had said,” says the author.
He went on to say more.
“Fantasy is the only medium through which I participate in magical thinking. You believe people when they say they will, and you are a savvy producer who does not force yourself into a corner. Samantha is a wonderful asset when it comes to magical thinking. “I have no realistic expectation that Kim Cattrall will ever make another appearance.”
It appears as though the door has been firmly closed… and bolted.
Carrie’s husband, John “Big” Preston, was killed off in the first episode of And Just Like That, a major development that divided viewers. As a result, Chris Noth’s time on the show has come to an end.
North was the subject of allegations of sexual assault, which he has denied, which resulted in the character’s posthumous cameo from the And Just Like That finale being cut from the final episode.
The following is what North said in a statement: “The accusations leveled against me by individuals I met years, if not decades, ago are categorically false. The events in these stories could have happened 30 years ago or just yesterday – no always means no – and that is a line I did not cross.
“All of the encounters were mutually beneficial. It’s difficult not to be perplexed by the timing of these stories coming to light at this point. I’m not sure why they’ve come to light at this point, but I do know this: I did not assault these women.”
We did, however, gain the addition of some new ladies to the crew elsewhere in the show. Nicole Ari Parker, Sara Ramirez, and Karen Pittman were all introduced as new characters to the central girls’ lives, and they made an immediate impression on both fans and the characters themselves.
Che, Carrie’s podcast producer/co-host and stand-up comic, as well as Miranda’s new lover, is played by Ramirez. Pittman portrays Dr. Nya Wallace, a law-school professor who leaves Miranda feeling a little tongue-tied about race, and Parker portrays Lisa Todd Wexley, a multimillionaire mother of three children.
The unfortunate fact is that Willie Garson’s portrayal of Carrie’s gay BFF, Stanford Blatch, was his final appearance on the show. Garson passed away just two weeks after filming his scenes for the show due to pancreatic cancer, which he had developed. He was 57 years old at the time.
And Just Like That…’ Season 2 Plot
At this point, your guess is as good as ours in terms of accuracy. Nonetheless, we anticipate a smidgeon of sexual tension, as well as a healthy dose of New York City.
The focus of the show has shifted somewhat, with the three main characters now in a different stage of their lives, one that goes beyond dating (well, maybe a little bit of dating).
Carrie is also attempting to navigate the single life for the first time since the unexpected death of her husband, Big. Miranda has also re-entered the dating scene, this time with a brand-new boo on her arm. It’s anyone’s guess whether Che and Miranda’s romance will survive the lull between seasons one and two, but we’re betting that fans of the show will be rooting for them in both directions.
Charlotte’s world has been thrown a little off-balance, but for the most part, Carrie’s and Miranda’s have remained relatively stable. Daughter Rose may have evolved into the gender-neutral Rock (please, no labels – no girl, no boy, no non-binary – no Jewish – not even a New Yorker – they’ve been very clear), but Charlotte’s primary concern has always been the well-being of her child. After that, it’s possible that something unexpected and life-altering will happen to her in the following season.
