Which Cast Members Are Coming Back for And Just Like That Season 2?
Great news for fans of And Just Like That Season 2 – most of the beloved cast from the first season is returning! Sarah Jessica Parker, renowned for her appearances in HBO series like Divorce, is back as our beloved protagonist, Carrie Bradshaw. Cynthia Nixon, celebrated for her successes on Broadway and her role in TV shows like Law & Order: SVU, will reprise her role as Miranda Hobbes. Kristin Davis, known for her roles in movies like Holiday in the Wild, is returning as Charlotte York. Unfortunately, Chris Noth won’t be returning as Mr. Big following his character’s heart attack, but we’re in for a nostalgic treat as John Corbett, famous for his role in the My Big Fat Greek Wedding series, returns as Aidan, the furniture designer who nearly tied the knot with Carrie twice.
Another intriguing character making a return is Che Diaz, the non-binary comedian and former coworker of Carrie, who embarked on a relationship with Miranda despite her marriage to Steve. Che is skillfully portrayed by Sara Ramirez, recognized by TV fans for their longstanding role as Dr. Callie Torres on Grey’s Anatomy. Last season’s new characters, Seema Patel (Sarita Choudhury) and Lisa Todd Wexley (Nicole Ari Parker), are set to make a comeback this season as well. But perhaps the most significant update is the return of Kim Cattrall as Samantha Jones in Season 2, putting an end to the controversy and reports suggesting her complete disassociation from the series. While it’s not a full-season return, Samantha fans will be delighted to know that Cattrall will be gracing the Season 2 finale with her presence, making it a memorable guest appearance.
Season 2 also promises fresh faces. Award-winning singer Sam Smith will be joining the cast this season, though it remains a mystery whether they will be playing themselves or a character. Additionally, the legendary sitcom star of Who’s the Boss, Tony Danza, has landed a recurring role as Che’s father, adding even more excitement to the upcoming season.
What Happened Last Season on And Just Like That?
Last season brought a whirlwind of events, starting with a gripping pilot episode that set the stage for the drama to come. When we rejoined our favorite characters, it seemed like they had settled into their daily routines. However, the unexpected passing of Big, who suffered a heart attack, sent shockwaves through their lives. His funeral marked a pivotal moment, especially for Miranda, who crossed paths with Che Diaz, the cohost of a sex and love podcast Carrie was now involved with. This encounter sparked an immediate infatuation in Miranda, who had returned to law school to specialize in human rights law. She embarked on an affair with Che, leading to the end of her marriage with Steve and a relocation to California with Che. Meanwhile, Carrie grappled with grief for the longest-standing relationship in her life, while missing the comforting presence of her close friend Samantha, who had moved to London following a falling out.
Throughout the season, Carrie and Miranda’s bond deepened, marked by poignant moments, including one in Paris where Carrie finally spread Big’s ashes and made plans to reunite with Samantha. In the final moments of the season, Carrie was seen launching her new solo podcast, aptly named “Sex and the City,” and sharing a kiss with her producer, Franklyn. Along the way, she made the significant decision to move out of her and Big’s apartment, forging a friendship with her real estate agent, Seema. On the other hand, Charlotte faced challenges in her role as a mother, particularly in her interactions with her non-binary child, Rock. After some ups and downs, Charlotte ultimately embraced her child, allowing them to break free from certain traditions, including foregoing a Bar Mitzvah.
