Watch: Kim Cattrall Joins And Just Like That

Is Carrie Bradshaw ready to be someone who is looking for love? Real love? Ridiculous, inconvenient, consuming, can't-live-without-each-other love?

She just might be. As in the trailer for season two of And Just Like That... viewers see Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker) navigate moving forward with her life more than a year after Big's (Chris Noth) death.

"You don't move on because you're ready to Carrie is overheard saying in the June 1 trailer. "You move on because you've outgrown who you used to be."

And it's a sentiment her longtime pals couldn't agree more with.

"The way you've moved on," Charlotte York-Goldenblatt (Kristin Davis) notes, "We're so proud of you." 

Carrie is also heard saying in the clip, "Life is too short not to try something new," as Miranda Hobbes (Cynthia Nixon) adds, "I'm on the precipice of doing something either really stupid or totally liberating," alongside shots of her and new flame, Che Diaz (Sara Ramírez).

As viewers see Carrie at bars, shopping at Bergdorf Goodman and having dinner with her core group of friends, her voice over chimes in, "And just like that I realized you never know what tomorrow will bring."

All the Iconic Sex and the City Items Sarah Jessica Parker Has Reworn on And Just Like That

And for Carrie, those changes include finally utilizing her kitchen for more than just extra storage space and reuniting with her other great love. The end of the trailer shows Carrie sending her ex-fiancée Aidan Shaw (John Corbett) an email that read: "Hey Stranger… Remember me? IF this is still your email, it's me–Carrie. Was just thinking about you the other day… and I wondered how you were doing. So, how ya doing?"

The clip ends with a glimpse of whether her email reached the furniture designer—whose return to the franchise was confirmed last summer—with a shot of the pair laughing in a booth as Aidan says, "Sitting here with you, it's like 10 years just," before snapping to indicate time flew by as if nothing had changed.

Samantha's Back!

Kim Cattrall—who starred on all six seasons of Sex and the City and its two spin-off movies, but did not reprise her role for the first season of And Just Like That...—will make an appearance on the revival's second season, a rep for Max (formerly HBO Max) confirmed to New York Post on May 31.

A Rekindled Romance?

If you just couldn't help but wonder what's going on with Carrie and Aidan, this February 2022 photo of Sarah Jessica Parker and John Corbett acting out a scene for season two might give you an idea.

The Return of Aidan

In August 2022, Deadline reported that John Corbett—who played Carrie's boyfriend Aidan on seasons three and four of Sex and the Citywould be returning for "a substantial, multi-episode arc" on season two. In January, Max officially confirmed Corbett's season two casting with first look photos.


Tony Danza Is Che Diaz's Dad...Kinda

Corbett won't be the only fresh face in season two, as Tony Danza is also joining the cast as the actor playing Che's father in her sitcom pilot.

The Dress

In a Nov. 3 photo from the And Just Like That... set, Carrie was seen wearing her iconic Vivienne Westwood dress from her wedding to Mr. Big (Chris Noth) in the 2008 Sex and the City movie. 

Do we hear more wedding bells?

A Tribute to Elizabeth Taylor

Charlotte's beloved dog Elizabeth Taylor was noticeably absent in season one, which left some fans befuddled. Charlotte did have a new bulldog named Richard Burton, but it didn't quite feel right that the legacy and impact of Elizabeth went unaddressed. 

In season two, a wrong appears to have been righted. In a Nov. 15 Instagram post, costumer designers Molly Rogers and Danny Santiago shared an oil painting of Elizabeth Taylor wearing a Burberry sweater, writing, "On charlotte's hallway wall."

Kristin Davis even commented, "My first baby."

May she rest in peace.

A Return to Joy

While season one of And Just Like That... was an undeniable nostalgia rush, it was a bit....bleak. An entire season centered around death and grief will do that.

However, the second season promises a breath of fresh air, at least according to Sarah Aubrey, Max's head of originals.

"What you're seeing this season is all of these characters embracing life," Aubrey told Variety Nov. 10. "It's a very joyful season and I think, in some ways, it feels like iconic Sex and the City episodes."

A Premiere Date

Season two will premiere on Max on June 22.
