And Just Like That Season 2 Release Date: When Is It Premiering?
A specific air date has yet to be announced, but if filming starts this year, the third season would likely be dropped in early 2023.
King had recently addressed the possibility of a possible second season.
In a chat with Variety about a third season, King commented: “We did something hard to do, which is we took something familiar and did make it new…for better and for worse.”
Star Sarah Jessica Parker agreed added: “Michael and I spoke two weeks ago, and said: ‘OK, when are we going to talk about this?’
“Because there’s a calendar and you don’t want to let too much time pass. There feels like there’s momentum.”
Casey Boys, the chief content officer for both HBO and HBO Max depicted the series as one of Max’s most profitable series to date – further hinting about a return.
“In terms of viewership, it’s been phenomenal. I couldn’t be happier with how it’s doing in terms of reception,” commented Bloys.
The Cast Of And Just Like That Season 2: Who Is Returning?
The three ladies will obviously return in the second namely–
- Sarah Jessica Parker in the role of Carrie Bradshaw
- Kristin Davis will play Charlotte York Goldenblatt
- Cynthia Nixon will reprise her role as Miranda Hobbes
As for the other characters who won’t be returning are: Mr. Big played by Chris Noth, apparently he was killed off in the series following his sexual allegations. Another sad news is the passing of Willie Garson who played Stanford Blatch due to pancreatic cancer
King previously revealed to Deadline that they had no plans to kill Stanford Blatch in the series.“We have no interest or plans in killing Stanford. None.”
He further added that Stan could be in Japan: Maybe. People change. People live in different places. It’s not something we’ve even discussed at this point because it’s so sad. We had 10 full, authentic, hilarious episodes for Stanford. Those just went away and there’s nothing really juicy about a real death, fictional death you can build around. Everybody knows Willie is gone, so there’s no real trick that we would try to pull to make that non-reality. We can’t bring Willie back so I don’t think we would even attempt to bring Stanford back because that’s a lot.”
The Plot For Season 2 Of And Just Like That
In the second season, it is expected that this season will centre on Carrie’s new love life with Franklyn, while seeking her new professional life that hosting podcast for Sex and the City.
