A lot has happened in the Sex and the City Universe since HBO’s reboot “And Just Like That…” premiered last summer. After the show killed off Mr. Big with a Peloton, Carrie took hold of her new life by starting a podcast. Meanwhile, Charlotte threw her non-binary child a “they-mitzvah” and, perhaps in the most meme-worthy storyline of the season, Miranda realized her queerness and began dating Che Diez, who introduces themself in the first episode as a “queer non-binary Mexican-Irish diva.”

But the most exciting scene of the reboot will take place tonight, when Kim Cattrall makes her much anticipated revival as the iconic Samantha Jones. In the scene, Samantha, who in the show has moved to London, will have a phone conversation with Carrie.
The finale of “And Just Like That…” Season 2 will arrive on Max on Thursday at 12:01 a.m. ET.
One of the biggest plot developments in this season was the return of John Corbett, who endeared himself to audiences in the original series as Aiden Shaw, a furniture designer who becomes a major love interest for Carrie in Season 3.
While the first season of “And Just Like That…” premiered to mixed reviews, critics have already responded more positively to Season 2.
“There’s something about ‘Sex and the City’ that keeps us welcoming it back — something beyond the willingness of crew and cast (less Kim Cattrall) to keep showing up,” writes Variety TV critic Daniel D’Addario, in his review of the new season. “Its characters combine a fundamental knowability, certain core characteristics that allow us to imagine them in any situation. But they are rounded enough that they still retain the potential to surprise us.”
In order to stream “And Just Like That…,” you’ll have to sign up for a Max account, whose ad-supported plans start at $9.99/month. However, you can also access Max for free through Prime Video, which offers a 7-day free trial to their Max add-on.
