The Sex and the City spinoff series, And Just Like That, has been renewed for a third season and has generated a lot of buzz among viewers. The show has faced backlash for various changes, including killing off Mr. Big in the series premiere, the absence of Samantha, and Miranda and Steve’s split. Showrunner Michael Patrick King defended the show’s decision to take big risks and make changes to keep the series fresh.

The upcoming season of And Just Like That has been delayed to 2025 due to strikes by the WGA and SAG-AFTRA. The second season finale left off with Carrie and Aidan parting ways, Miranda reconciling with Steve, and Anthony finding closure with his ex-husband. Character departures may occur in season 3, with Sara Ramirez reportedly being dropped due to her character being unlikable and Karen Pittman leaving due to scheduling conflicts.

Fans may not see Aidan return consistently in season 3, as he returned home to Virginia in the second season finale. Samantha, played by Kim Cattrall, is not expected to return due to a falling out with Sarah Jessica Parker. Cattrall filmed a cameo for season 2, but it is unlikely she will have a larger role in season 3. Showrunner Michael Patrick King has hinted at a new direction for the show, with Carrie and Seema’s trip to Greece offering a glimpse at what’s to come.

The cast has expressed their hopes for the upcoming season, with Nicole Ari Parker wanting to explore Lisa’s relationship with her husband in more depth. Filming for season 3 is expected to begin in May, with the cast remaining tight-lipped about the upcoming storylines. The vision for season 3 seems to involve exploring new relationships and adventures for the characters, with a hint that Carrie’s future may not align with Aidan’s timeline. Despite the criticisms and changes, And Just Like That continues to draw attention and anticipation for what’s to come in the next season.
