and just like that sex and the cityHBO Max

And just like that, Season 2 of the Sex and the City spinoff is set to stroll onto our screens in its Manolo Blahniks. Here’s everything you need to know about it.

Sex and the City is one of the biggest shows in the world, with everyone still wondering to this day if they’re a Carrie, Samantha, Miranda or Charlotte.

Evidently, while the first season of the show’s spin-off series, And Just Like That, was received with rather mixed reviews from fans and critics alike back in 2021, the reboot was still popular enough to garner a Season 2.

But what’s happening with the second season of the show? When will it be released, and what’s going to happen in it? Well keep reading, and let us explain.

And Just Like That Season 2: When is the new season coming out?

And Just Like That… Season 2 is set to premiere on HBO Max on Thursday, June 22, 2023. This release date was announced amidst Warner Bros. Discovery’s Upfront presentation in NYC.

The new season is set to have 11 episodes, with the first two episodes dropping on the above date, and the remaining nine episodes airing weekly every Thursday.

The news of a second season was revealed back in September 2022, when star Sarah Jessica Parker posted a photo of a Season 2 script to her Instagram.

Filming has since wrapped, with shots of Carrie’s love-them-or-hate-them outfits being posted throughout on the street by the series’ official Instagram page.

As of writing, the cast list for And Just Like That Season 2 is as follows:

  • Sarah Jessica Parker as Carrie Bradshaw
  • Cynthia Nixon as Miranda Hobbes
  • Kristin Davis as Charlotte York Goldenblatt
  • Sarita Choudhury as Seema Patel
  • Mario Cantone as Anthony Marentino

  • William Abadie as Zed
  • Kim Catrall as Samantha Jones

Now, one big reveal for Season 2 is that Kim Catrall, AKA Samantha Jones, will be returning for a cameo.

This cameo comes as a surprise, as Catrall initially refused to be part of the reboot series. The character was explained as now living in London after a falling out with Carrie – despite them texting at the end of Season 1 – which will likely remain the case in Season 2. Don’t expect Samantha to head back to New York, as she will only appear in one scene near the season’s end.

As stated by Variety, “Cattrall shot her dialogue on March 22 in New York City, without seeing or speaking with the stars of the series, including Sarah Jessica Parker, or with “And Just Like That” showrunner Michael Patrick King.

“Famed “Sex and the City” costume designer Patricia Field, who has not been working on “And Just Like That,” dressed Samantha for her scene.”

Arguably the other most exciting casting for this season is John Corbett as Aidan Shaw. In August 2022 Deadline stated that Aiden would have a ‘substantial, multi-episode arc’, and judging by a recent filming photo on Instagram, in which Carrie and Aiden hold hands, there could be more – arguably problematic – love along the way.

Willie Garson, who plays Stanford Blatch, will unfortunately not be appearing, as the actor sadly passed away due to health reasons midway through filming of Season 1, in September 2021.

Chris Noth will also not be reprising his role, which is likely due to the fact that Mr Big died early in Season 1, as well as the recent allegations against Noth.

And Just Like That Season 2 trailer: Is there a trailer?

The trailers cover many of the major plot points that will happen this season, with a lot of fabulous designer clothing to gawk at along the way.

And Just Like That Season 2 plot: What will happen next season?

We expect that the second season will continue to cover Carrie’s jump back into dating after the death of Mr Big. Season 1 ended with her new romance with podcast producer Franklyn, though we likely can’t expect that to last, since past love Aiden is set to return to the show in a big way.

Miranda – who has her red hair once again – chased Che to Los Angeles last season, but we can expect her back in New York rather soon. Her failed marriage with Steve will still hang over her head, and we will also get some more backstory on Che, as we will be meeting their father.

The focus of Charlotte’s plotlines will likely remain her children Lily and Rock, however she will also be figuring out her life outside of her kids.

In terms of other characters, we can also expect their relationship issues to be touched upon, such as Nya’s marriage and Seema’s newest sexual escapades. Plus, we may find out what’s going on with Samantha, as per her cameo.

However, a new poster for the show reveals the characters in a “Final Supper” type position, with Carrie at the centre as a fashionable Jesus. And according to some fans, this could hint that a big betrayal is about to happen. Nothing is set in stone, but Carrie getting crucified would certainly be a memorable plot point.
