The HBO Max revival, although critically panned, is returning for round two.
Currently sitting on a 49% Rotten Tomatoes critics score (and a 30% audience score) is the 'Sex And The City' revival series. So, why not give 'And Just Like That...' a second season?
That's exactly what HBO Max is thinking - because it was a worldwide smash. We don't know about you, but we found the 10 episode first season quite a struggle to watch (see why here). After talking with friends, colleagues, family members and searching the internet each week after a new episode aired, it seemed the majority of people were in the same boat. But, that's the thing - we all watched it.
Us 'Sex And The City' freaks tuned in every week, and we made the thing that we disliked a success, no matter how infuriating we found it.
We are the ones that made 'And Just Like That...' the most-watched HBO Max original series ever, and now we're getting a second season as our
penance reward. Are we excited? No. But will we watch it? You bet your Gucci bag belt we will.
Of course, the season renewal comes as no real surprise. The season finale was left slightly open-ended, as Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker) begins a new podcast venture called 'Sex And The City' alongside her producer and new love interest Franklin (Ivan Hernandez).
Meanwhile, Cynthia Nixon's Miranda is off galivanting with Che (Sara Ramirez), while Kristin Davis is juggling being a mother to her children, post-menopause. Kim Cattrall's Samantha, although referenced a number of times throughout the series and even "appeared" via text messages with Carrie, was not part of the revival much to the fanbase's disapproval.
Executive producer Michael Patrick King said of the 'And Just Like That...' second season renewal: "I am delighted and excited to tell more stories about these vibrant, bold characters — played by these powerful, amazing actors.
"The fact is, we’re all thrilled. 'And Just like That…' our Sex life is back."
