And Just Like That S2
From Emmy-winning Sex and the City writer and executive producer Michael Patrick King, And Just Like That… catches up with our favourite glam besties, Carrie, Miranda and Charlotte as they navigate the complex reality of life as 50-somethings. Max’s Sex and the City reboot started out as a miniseries but was soon renewed for a second season, and has recently been greenlit for a third.
The show’s Emmy-winning stars Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis all exec produce. Franchise alums Evan Handler, Mario Cantone, and David Eigenberg return for Season 2 alongside Emmy nominee Sara Ramirez (Grey’s Anatomy), Screen Actor’s Guild Award nominees Sarita Choudhury (Homeland, Little Fires Everywhere) and Karen Pittman (Mia Jordan in The Morning Show), and BET and Black Reel Award nominee Nicole Ari Parker (Empire’s Giselle).
Fans of the original show will be thrilled to know that this season promises a cameo from Kim Cattrall (aka Samantha) as well, and there’s excellent news for Team Aidan, with Emmy nominee John Corbett (Northern Exposure’s Chris) making a welcome return to Carrie’s life, and maybe her heart too…
The critics are all saying Season 2 is better than the first. “The second season has allowed a clean slate of sorts,” TheWrap explains, “with Carrie emerging from the depths of her grief enough to allow for some good, old-fashioned Sex and the City-style dating, brunch banter, luxurious fashion plotlines and the return of sex.”
Plus, the guest appearances are ramping up this season, with a star-studded guest cast that includes Emmy nominees Victor Garber (Jack Bristow in Alias) and Billy Dee Williams (Star Wars’ Lando Calrissian); Oscar nominee Candice Bergen (Murphy Brown, Boston Legal, Let Them All Talk); Emmy, Grammy and Tony-winning Broadway legend André De Shields; and Critics Choice Award nominees Miriam Shor (Diana in Younger) and Rosemarie DeWitt (Rachel in Rachel Getting Married and Laura in La La Land), not to mention Gloria Steinem, Tony Danza, Drew Barrymore and Sam Smith as themselves.
