7 Plot Lines That Can Redeem “And Just Like That” in Season 2
It’s no secret that “And Just Like That” missed the mark as the spinoff of a classic ’90s show. In the era of reboots, the “Sex and the City” revival made ambitious strides to spark the same magic that made us fall for the famous girlfriend group. “We did something that was hard to do, which is we took something familiar and did make it new,” showrunner Michael Patrick King told Variety of his goal for the spinoff. However, the show’s efforts weren’t as well-received as the cast and crew hoped they’d be.
“We did something that was hard to do, which is we took something familiar and did make it new.”
From Carrie’s (Sarah Jessica Parker) slow reflexes to save Mr. Big (Chris Noth) to Charlotte’s (Kristin Davis) out-of-touch cultural impulses to Miranda’s (Cynthia Nixon) questionable actions, “And Just Like That” all but stumbled its way through a rocky first season. And don’t even get me started on how they fumbled their new cast additions – Nicole Ari Parker, Karen Pittman, and Sara Ramírez – and used them to add ham-fisted diversity into the show. While some fans enjoyed seeing a modern-day take on our beloved New York City gals, others, like myself, found themselves scratching their heads at what the hell the show was doing to the characters we’ve grown to love.
Personally, there were a lot of poor decisions made on behalf of “And Just Like That” that left me wanting more – more substance 17 years later, and more justice for plot lines that could’ve been better developed. Since the show has officially been renewed for season two, it seems the revival may actually get a chance to redeem itself. So while we wait for the show to start production again, here’s everything we think should happen in season two.
