Get excited, Team Aidan fans! John Corbett is officially back for the second season of “And Just Like That.” In new photos by Craig Blankenhorn, shared by the HBO Max series on Jan. 13, Sarah Jessica Parker’s Carrie and Corbett’s Aidan are seen holding hands while walking the streets of New York City. “Shh. Don’t tell anyone,” the show’s account captioned the new images. While it’s unclear what season two holds for the formerly engaged on-screen couple, they sure look like a stylish pair.
In August 2022, after much back and forth, Deadline exclusively reported Corbett’s return to the “Sex and the City” sequel. Corbett previously got fans excited in April 2021, when he revealed he would reprise his role in the reboot before it aired — which Parker later clarified was a joke. “[Corbett] actually reached out very kindly, because he’s nothing if not a gentleman, and apologized for doing that as a joke,” she said on “Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen.” She added, “I thought it was kind of delightful and fun. . . . Having said that, I think all of it is possible.”
After season one wrapped with mixed reviews, executive producer Michael Patrick King also spoke about Corbett’s initial comments and potential return with Deadline. “The fact of the matter is, we never said anything about Aidan, just like we never said, Steve and Carrie or getting together. . . . It really just felt like this was a lot for Carrie. This season was a lot. We wanted to get her through this and into the light.” He continued, “[Aidan’s return] is a big storyline that everybody at home wrote that we had never intended.”
HBO Max renewed the series for a season two earlier in 2022, and Parker confirmed filming was underway in September. The streamer has yet to confirm any new casting details or premiere date for the new installment, though it’s safe to assume Parker, Kristin Davis, and Cynthia Nixon will all return, as well as newcomers Nicole Ari Parker, Karen Pittman, and Sara Ramírez.
