It feels like it’s been approximately 10 years since the last episode of And Just Like That…, the Sex and the City reboot that gave us all brand-new street style to analyze, endless Steve reflections, and, of course, Che Diaz, but in actuality, only six months have elapsed. How? How is that possible?
Luckily, there’s news out of the And Just Like That… universe today, reminding us all that a second season is imminent. This is news for real “who-should-Carrie-be-with” heads only, I must caution: on Thursday, it was reported that actor John Corbett will be reprising his role as Carrie’s ex-fiancé Aidan Shaw when the show returns.
Although the casting choice might sound like a last-minute shuffle to make the audience forget about Mr. Big, it’s actually been in the works since last year—sort of. “I’m going to do the show,” Corbett told the New York Post in April 2021, adding, “I think I might be in quite a few [episodes].” This, it turns out, was an elaborate joke that SJP was in on, but even after appearing in absolutely zero episodes of the first season, there’s no reason Aidan can’t show up to save the day (and steal Carrie’s heart) in time for Season 2.
Now, that’s all lovely and fine and good, but…when is Berger coming back? When are we finally going to get to the bottom of the “I’m sorry. I can’t. Don’t hate me” Post-It? Inquiring minds want to know!
