We’re Calling It: Here’s What Will Happen in ‘And Just Like That’ Season 2

and just like that season 2

By now you are likely all over the news that And Just Like That…, the fairly divisive Sex and the City reboot, has been confirmed for a second season.

Whether you loved the first instalment, hate-watched it or just thought it was some good old fashioned mindless entertainment to pass the time, there’s no denying this was a series that had people talking.

Of course, not all of those conversations were positive ones — especially in light of the troubling sexual assault allegations against Chris Noth ahead of the series premiere. Noth was subsequently cut from a scene in the finale in which his character, Mr Big, was supposed to appear in a dream sequence.

Then there was the topic of Che Diaz (Sara Ramirez) — a character so polarizing, they give pineapple on pizza a run for its money.

Many took umbrage with the fact that Che, who is supposed to be a comedian worthy of their own Netflix special, simply was not funny. Others grumbled that they were more akin to some sort of unhinged bargain-basement motivational speaker who told people to “step out of the box” instead of delivering a perfectly workshopped tight five. And nearly everyone was mortified by how one formerly cynical Miranda Hobbes, Esq, became nothing more than a caricature of everything she once hated whenever in Che’s presence — even when being told VIA SONG that they were moving to LA to be the next Roseanne Barr. Honestly, that one still makes me a little queasy.

In and amongst all of that, there was also a storyline that saw Charlotte’s youngest child reckon with their gender identity, the exploration of grief and the loss of loved ones, an all too brief toe-dip into the issue of fertility, plus new friends, old friends, absent friends and, naturally, fabulous fashion.

Nothing has been confirmed about the second season of And Just Like That… so far, other than the fact it’s happening. So, we decided to take the liberty of staring into our hypothetical crystal balls and taking a stab in the dark at what we think could happen when the next instalment hits our screens.

Aiden Will Actually Come Back This Time

John Corbett did us dirty in the lead up to the first season of And Just Like That…, telling Page Six, “I’m going to do the show” adding, “I like all those people, they’ve been very nice to me.” Corbett told the publication that he was going to be in “quite a few” of the ten episodes, referring to the opportunity as “exciting.”

Well, it turned out that Corbett’s nose was as long as Aiden’s flowing locks were when Carrie first met him because he was nowhere to be seen in the reboot, and it was a damn shame.

We are predicting that this time around, Aiden actually will make a comeback and that it could potentially cause some issues for Carrie and her new make-out buddy, Franklyn.

Che and Miranda Will Not Last

Perhaps we are simply trying to manifest this one, but can anyone actually see Che and Miranda going the distance?

For one thing, it seems as though Miranda has just refused to hear Che when they have told her repeatedly that they don’t do traditional relationships and are also polyamorous.

For another thing, Che is, well… Che. Surely even Miranda, who seems to have been rendered brainless thanks to the non-stop orgasms Che has been giving her, will come around to her new paramour’s general insufferableness.

Say it into existence, people!

Steve Will Get Justice

Piggybacking on from the above, viewers were dismayed at how poor old Steve Brady — the plucky bartender from Queens who used to be the best sex Miranda ever had before he completely forgot where her clitoris is — was treated in the reboot.

Not only did they make him deaf (partly due to the fact that Steve Eisenberg who plays him has suffered hearing loss himself), the producers also made him perpetually confused and unable to find his way around a farmer’s market.

The hashtag #justiceforsteve quickly began trending with Tweets such as this one circulating the web:

We are all for the return of Mastercard Debbie, so we are adding her reunion with Steve to our list of predictions. And, because we are nice, we’ll throw a bionic ear into the mix for old man Brady too.

Che Will Become a Mentor for Rock

This one would make sense and it really would be nice for Rock’s storyline to be explored in more depth.

Regardless of how Che and Miranda’s relationship pans out, we would love to see Che provide guidance for Rock, and also for Harry and Charlotte, as they navigate the topic of gender identity.

Let’s just hope Che doesn’t also guide Rock toward a career in “comedy” though because one “new Roseanne Barr” is already way too many.

Charlotte and Harry Will Get Kinky

Charlotte has always been way more sexually adventurous than people give her credit for. Remember when she nonchalantly announced over brunch that she and Trey enjoyed a bit of “tucus lingus”?

Or when she declared to a table of stick-up-their-ass former sorority sisters that she just wanted to be “f—ked hard”?

Well, we see some fun experimentation in Harry and Charlotte’s future including, but not limited to, a threesome, some role-playing and doing it on sheets that are less than 800 thread count. Wild.

The New Characters Will Be Better Fleshed Out

We barely had a chance to get to know Nya, Seema and Lisa — the new friends that were introduced to make Carrie, Miranda and Charlotte seem more “woke”.

Nya’s storyline, in particular, is something we’d love to see more of, as the first season saw her and her husband taking some time apart after struggling with infertility and arriving at different places in terms of how they felt about that. It would be powerful to see this topic explored further — so here’s hoping season two delivers.

It would also be great to get to know Seema better as well but, honestly, she is so cool I would settle for each episode featuring an extended montage of her just standing around smoking and generally not giving a f—k.

Samantha Will Ghost Carrie Again

The whole texting thing between Carrie and Samantha (Kim Cattrall) was poorly executed and made no sense, especially in the wake of Carrie’s husband dying (a fact she may have mentioned once or twice).

We’d like it to end, pronto, so we are predicting that Samantha Jones will go AWOL again, this time for an ever thinner reason than the first, such as her dropping her phone in the loo and having none of her contacts saved to the cloud because everyone in this show is apparently 80 and has no idea how the modern world works.

Carrie’s Podcast Will Be Turned Into a TV Show

Look, if Che can be given a TV show out in LA after never making anything close to a joke, Carrie can be extended the same courtesy.

As you know, Sex and the City was originally a book (by Candace Bushnell). It then became the original TV series and two really bad movies, only to then be reincarnated as a reboot which featured a podcast, that was based on a column and its subsequent book.

We predict that in And Just Like That: Round Two, Carrie’s Sex and the City Podcast will once again become a TV show and it will all be very meta and we will be subjected to this never-ending cycle until we die.
