Sarah Jessica Parker has confirmed that John Corbett will reprise his role as fan-favorite ‘Sex and the City’ character Aidan Shaw in the series sequel ‘And Just Like That…’

It was previously reported in August that Corbett was returning to the show as a lovable furniture designer for a “substantial multi-episode arc.” At the time, HBO Max neither confirmed nor denied the information.

Speaking to “Entertainment Tonight,” Parker all but confirmed that the character would return.

When asked about her comeback, she replied, “It’s possible, it’s possible,” then added, “Well, you know, I can’t be cryptic about that anymore.”

The news of Corbett’s return opens the door for other characters from the original series to return. Some of Carrie’s other exes who could return include Aleksandr Petrovsky, played by Mikhail Baryshnikov, and Jack Berger, played by Ron Livingston.

Parker and other cast members teased fans about the show’s second season on their social media accounts, posting photos from the first episodes’ scripts during the first season chart read.

Parker’s photo was from the first episode and had the episode title crossed out, while Sara Ramirez posted scripts of the first two episodes, with the titles also covered.

Although Parker didn’t give much about the show’s second season in her Instagram post, she did give a little hint as to what fans can expect in her interview.

She explained that while season 1 was a lot about Carrie’s grief and how she picked up the pieces after the death of her husband, John “Mr. Big” Preston, season 2 will be lighter and show what looks like life on the other side of loss and how Carrie overcomes and moves on.


“Season 2 is about resilience and rebounding and laughter and finding laughter easier for people who might have gone through grief,” Parker told “Entertainment Tonight.” “More of our new cast members that we love.”

The first episode of the first season ended with Mr. Big having a heart attack and dying after completing a practice session on his Platoon. The rest of the season followed Carrie as she processed her grief and tried to figure out how to live in a world without Big.

The season ended with Carrie kissing her boss in an elevator, leading fans to believe she was ready to date again.
