Carrie, Miranda, Charlotte, and more characters we met in HBO Max’s Sex and the City spin-off are coming back in Season 2 of And Just Like That... And some we haven’t seen since the original series wrapped nearly two decades ago. So here’s everything you need to know about And Just Like That... Season 2 before it premieres this summer with even more cringey parenting moments.

When does And Just Like That... Season 2 premiere?

HBO Max announced that Season 2 of And Just Like That... will premiere on Thursday, June 22. And if it follows Season 1’s pattern, we can expect new episodes to drop weekly after that.

Who’s returning in And Just Like That... Season 2?

Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon, and Kristin Davis will all reprise their roles as Carrie, Miranda, and Charlotte, respectively, in And Just Like That... Season 2. Sara Ramírez will also return as Che Diaz, Miranda’s love interest. Sarita Choudhury will also come back in Season 2 as Carrie’s friend and realtor Seema Patel, Nicole Ari Parker will return as Charlotte’s mom friend Lisa Todd Wexley, and Karen Pittman will reprise her role as Dr. Nya Wallace, Miranda’s law professor.

Mario Cantone, David Eigenberg, Evan Handler, Christopher Jackson, Niall Cunningham, Cathy Ang, and Alexa Swinton will also all return in Season 2 of And Just Like That...

Kim Cattrall is reprising her role as Samantha Jones.

Very briefly, that is. Variety has reported that Cattrall’s cameo in And Just Like That... will only include one scene of her speaking on the phone with Carrie. She reportedly filmed her scene back in March in New York City and did not speak with any of her former co-stars or showrunner Michael Patrick King, according to Variety.

“Secret’s out!!” the series’ Twitter account confirmed on May 30.

Cattrall very famously said in past interviews that she was done playing Samantha after Sex and the City 2 and didn’t want to do a third movie because she thought her character was not progressing. “It’s a great wisdom to know when enough is enough,” she told Variety in 2022. “I also didn’t want to compromise what the show was to me. The way forward seemed clear.” In the same interview, she also said her playing Samantha again “would never happen.”

There’s also, of course, years of rumors about a feud between Cattrall and her Sex and the City castmates, most prominently with Parker. So, needless to say, Sex and the City fans will all need a stiff cosmo for Samantha’s return in And Just Like That...

Aiden Shaw returns in the And Just Like That... Season 2.

Watch all the way to end to see everyone’s favorite furniture designer Aidan Shaw, played by John Corbett, reunite with Carrie over dinner.

HBO Max dropped the official trailer for And Just Like That... Season 2 on June 1 and let’s just say, there’s lots to look forward to this summer. Charlotte gets drunk off shots, Steve makes a cameo, Carrie finally uses her stove for more than shoe storage, and Miranda seems to question things with Che.

Sex and the City fans are pumped for Season 2 of the spin-off.

Fans of the original HBO series quickly commented on the teaser to share their excitement, especially about Carrie and Aiden’s storyline and Samantha’s return.

“Carrie and Aidan took over 20 years to get their endgame but FINALLY, it’s happening!” one fan commented.

“This promo feels more like the old school SATC!! I'm excited for the new season,” another said.

“OMFG!! AIDAN!! YESSSS!!! <3” one more commented.

“And just like that samantha jones will save the show once again,” one fan tweeted.

June 22 can’t get here soon enough!
