For everyone who shipped Carrie and Aidan on Sex and the City, we've got good news for you.

On Thursday, April 15, John Corbett, who played Carrie's furniture designer ex-fiancé on SATC between 2000 and 2003 and in the 2010 Sex and the City 2 film, confirmed his participation in the HBO Max revival, titled And Just Like That. As Corbett told Page Six, he is "going to do the show."

Not only did the 59-year-old actor call the news "very exciting," he teased that he may "be in quite a few" episodes. Since the revival series has a 10-episode order, we couldn't help but wonder…

While it's been confirmed that Kim Cattrall (a.k.a. Samantha Jones) won't be joining Sarah Jessica ParkerCynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis for the new series, fans have been eagerly awaiting news about the other members of the cast.

Although it was rumored Chris Noth would not be reprising his Mr. Big role for And Just Like That, he later suggested that the reports were inaccurate. In fact, Noth told one fan on Instagram, "Everything changes—including announcements in the rags."

However, if Noth doesn't return, that opens up the opportunity for another Carrie-Aidan reunion. As fans of the franchise well know, Carrie and Aidan shared a kiss in SATC 2 after running into each other in Abu Dhabi. Ultimately, Carrie chose to stay with Mr. Big.

Corbett isn't the only SATC guy to confirm their return to the franchise. Back in March, David Eigenberg revealed on Daily Pop that he was "pretty sure" he was coming back to play Steve Brady.

"They have called me," Eigenberg said at the time. "They've been wonderful and I'm very excited to see Miss Cynthia Nixon in her portrayal of Miranda and also their son Brady Brady. We never established whether he was Brady Hobbs or Brady Brady Hobbs or Brady Hobbs Brady. So I'm really hoping to see that we're all going to be together."

Furthermore, Justin Theroux, who portrayed one of Carrie's boyfriends, said he "would love to" do SATC again. It's all coming together!
