And Just Like That… is a Netflix comedy-drama series created by Michael Patrick King and produced by HBO Max. It is a revival and a sequel to Darren Star’s HBO television series Sex and the City, which is based on Candace Bushnell’s newspaper column and the same-named 1996 book anthology.
Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon, Kristin Davis, Mario Cantone, David Eigenberg, Willie Garson, Evan Handler, and Chris Noth star in the series, which is set 11 years after the events of the 2010 film Sex and the City 2. Sara Ramirez and Sarita Choudhury play new characters.
Following the termination of a third film adaptation, development for the series began in December 2020. In January 2021, HBO Max gave it a straight-to-series order. Casting announcements were made throughout the year 2021, and production in New York City began in July of that year.
On December 9, 2021, And Just Like That… premiered on HBO Max to mixed reviews. On February 3, 2022, the season finale was released. The series, which was originally marketed as a miniseries, was revived for a second season in March 2022.
And Just Like That Season 2 Release Date:
In March, HBO Max announced that the Sex and the City revival, And Just Like That…, had been renewed for a second season. While the series has become the streaming platform’s most popular original material to date, its plots have caused some controversy among viewers.
The specific release date has yet to be determined, but if production begins this year, the show might return as early as 2023.
“We have been delighted by the cultural conversation sparked by these characters and their tales, situated in a world we already know and love so much,” Sarah Aubrey, HBO Max’s head of original content, said in a statement.
“We are extremely proud of Michael Patrick King and our talented writers, producers, cast, and crew for bringing these stories to life on screen.” We can’t wait for fans to see what Season 2 has in store!”
Michael Patrick King, the show’s executive producer, had previously discussed the possibility of a second season.
“We did something that was hard to do, which is we took something familiar and made it new…for better or for worse,” King said of the return to Variety.
Who might appear in the second season of And Just Like That?
And Just Like That wouldn’t be able to go on without the starring females. The return of the following cast members has been confirmed.
- Carrie Bradshaw is played by Sarah Jessica Parker.
- Charlotte York Goldenblatt is played by Kristin Davis.
- Miranda Hobbes is played by Cynthia Nixon.
The girls’ buddy Anthony Marentino (Mario Cantone), who is now divorced and alone after Stanford left him to travel to Japan, is also expected to return.
In addition, Evan Handler will reprise his role as Charlotte’s devoted husband Harry Goldenblatt, Alexa Swinton will reprise her role as child Rock Goldenblatt, and Cathy Ang will reprise her role as daughter Lily Goldenblatt.
Niall Cunningham will most likely reprise his role as Miranda’s son Brady Hobbes, with Cree Cicchino reprising his role as his girlfriend Luisa Torres.
Steve Brady, Miranda’s loyal estranged husband, would most likely be played by David Eigenberg. Is it possible for them to reconcile?
We may expect Sarita Choudhury as Seema Patel, Nicole Ari Parker as Lisa Todd Wexley, Karen Pittman as Dr. Nya Wallace, and Sara Ramirez as Che Diaz to reappear in And Just Like That.
Other figures in these characters’ lives, such as LTW’s husband Herbert Wexley (Christopher Jackson), LeRoy McClain as Nya’s husband Andre Rashad Wallace, and Emily in Paris actor William Abadie as Seema’s new lover, Zed, may reappear.
We also have a new love interest for Carrie in the form of Ivan Hernandez, who plays Franklyn, her podcast producer.
Due to Willie Garson’s death in 2021, we will not see him reprise his role as Stanford Blatch. As a result, he was written out of And Just Like That considerably sooner than expected, with the character departing for Japan.
Finally, Chris Noth will not reprise his role as Mr. Big/John James Preston, following the death of the character and the removal of his parts from the season 1 finale.

The Plot of And Just Like That Season 2
At this point, your guess is as good as ours. But we’re betting there’ll be a little bit of sex and a lot of New York.
However, the focus of the show has turned to the leading three ladies as they enter a new phase of their lives beyond dating (well, maybe a little bit of dating).
Carrie is also readjusting to life as a single woman following Big’s untimely death. Miranda has also re-entered the dating scene, this time with a new boo. It’s anyone’s guess if Che and Miranda’s romance will survive the gap between seasons one and two, but either way, it’ll be dramatic.
What could possibly go wrong for a mother who has gone to the other side of the country and left her husband for Che?
While Carrie and Miranda’s worlds have been turned upside down, Charlotte’s has remained relatively unaffected. Rose may have become the gender-neutral Rock (no labels, please – no girl, no boy, non-binary, Jewish, or even a New Yorker – they’ve been quite clear), but Charlotte’s ultimate worry has remained her child’s safety. It’s likely that a later season will toss her something unexpected and life-changing.
Season 1 Ending Explained!
Carrie cautiously re-entered the dating pool after recovering from the trauma of Big’s death. Her first attempt failed miserably, but she did enjoy a kiss with her podcast producer Franklyn in the season finale (Ivan Hernandez). Miranda began dating nonbinary comic Che Diaz (Sara Ramrez) and announced her divorce from her spouse, Steve (David Eigenberg). She opted to continue her semester at Columbia University remotely and go to Los Angeles to be with Che in the final episode. Charlotte, who spent the season figuring out how to deal with her son Rock’s gender identification, stepped in for Rock at the They Mitzvah she and Harry (Evan Handler) planned.
