'And Just Like That...' Max Renews 'Sex and the City' Revival for Season 3 Ahead of Finale

The season 2 finale of 'And Just Like That' will drop on Max on Thursday

And Just Like That... Max is locked in for a third season with Carrie and the gang.

Ahead of Thursday's season 2 finale, which some fans speculated might serve as a series finale, the streamer confirmed it is in fact renewing the Sex and the City revival for another batch of episodes.

Executive producer Michael Patrick King enthused in a press release about opportunity to tell the stories of the show’s iconic characters: Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker), Charlotte (Kristin Davis) and Miranda (Cynthia Nixon) — as well as the new additions who've joined AJLT in seasons 1 and 2.


“We are thrilled to spend more time in the Sex and the City universe telling new stories about the lives of these relatable and aspirational characters played by these amazing actors,” he said. “And Just Like That… Here comes season three.”

With the series ranking as the most-watched series and No. 1 original overall for the streamer, Max's Head of Original Content Sarah Aubrey shared her excitement for fans to see more.

“As we approach the highly anticipated season finale on Thursday, we raise our cosmos to Michael Patrick King and his magnificent team of writers, producers, cast and crew who continue to charm us, 25 years later, with dynamic friendships and engaging stories," she said in a statement. "We cannot wait for audiences to see where season three will take our favorite New Yorkers."

The season 2 finale of And Just Like That drops Thursday on Max and will feature a cameo from Kim Cattrall as her beloved Sex and the City character Samantha Jones.

After previous reports she wasn’t interested in reprising her role, Max confirmed the news that Cattrall would step back into Samantha’s shoes. The next day, the actress announced the happy return herself on June 1, 2023 — the first day of Pride Month.

She shared a photo of herself as Samantha to Instagram and captioned the post, “Happy Pride 🏳️‍🌈🏳️‍⚧️🌈…”

Cattrall’s character will speak over the phone with Carrie in Thursday's episode, titled "The Last Supper Part Two: Entree."

The actress, who celebrated her 67th birthday on Monday, filmed her scene this past March in New York City “without seeing or speaking with the stars of the series,” including Parker, Nixon and Davis. She also reportedly did not interact with King, per Variety.
