And Just Like That: Everything We Know About Season Two

...And we have a release date!

This is not a drill! We finally have a launch date for And Just Like That season two. Clear your diary for Thursday 22 June, when we will be treated to a double bill of episodes one and two of the new season.

As we eagerly await the big day, here’s everything we know about season two…

And Just Like That Season 2 Trailer

What will happen in AJLT season two?

In the finale of AJLT, it looked like Carrie was open to dating again, as she shared a kiss with her podcast producer Franklin (Ivan Hernandez) after earlier sprinkling Big’s ashes in Paris. Images from the season two set show Franklin is still on the scene, but whether a relationship with Carrie has blossomed is unclear.

But the BIG news is that Aidan Shaw (John Corbett) is officially returning, after the red herring that he would be in season one of AJLT. The pictures from set make it look like Carrie and Aidan are getting pretty cosy – could this be the second chance romance we never saw coming?

We might also get more actual sex in season two, in a statement reported by Variety, showrunner Michael Patrick King said: ‘I am delighted and excited to tell more stories about these vibrant, bold characters — played by these powerful, amazing actors. The fact is, we’re all thrilled. And just like that … our Sex life is back.’

Who’s in the AJLT season two cast?

Miranda (Cynthia Nixon) and Charlotte (Kristin Davis) will both be returning, of course, and Carrie’s new BFF, the magnificent Seema (Sharita Choudhury) looks like she will play an even bigger role in season two, given how much she’s been spotted on set.

Nicole Ari Parker returns as Charlotte’s super stylish friend Lisa Todd Wexley, as will Karen Pittman as Miranda’s professor pal Dr Nya Wallace. Carrie’s neighbour Lisette (Katerina Tannenbaum) has also been spied shooting scenes with SJP, so she’ll be back too. We will also get more scene-styling moments with Anthony Marentino (Mario Cantone), who is now divorced and single after Stanford (the late Willie Garson) left him to move to Japan.

Perhaps the most controversial character from SATC universe – Che Diaz (Sara Ramirez) will also be returning in season two.

Speaking to Variety, Sara Ramírez, who plays Che, says that season two will pick up three weeks after the AJLT finale, which saw a lovestruck, newly queer-identifying Miranda head for Los Angeles with Che.

There’s no confirmation yet whether David Eigenberg – who plays Steve Brady – will be in season two but surely they won’t drop him altogether?!
