Sex And The City Star John Corbett to Return for And Just Like That... Season 2
By VALERIE ETTENHOFER
Now that Mr. Big (Chris Noth) has passed away, “And Just Like That…” has the chance to do what "Sex and the City" should've done years ago: bring back Aidan. Deadline reports that John Corbett is set to return for several episodes of the popular HBO series' second season, giving Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker) another chance with the good-natured furniture maker.
HBO hasn’t commented on Deadline's report or offered any details about Aidan since the last time fans saw the character back in 2010. However, series executive producer Michael Patrick King said that Carrie needed to “get through [Big's death] and into the light" before the show considers anything related to Aidan.
King also implied the hype around seeing Aidan may have made viewers a little overzealous about the idea of his appearance, saying his return "is a big storyline that everybody at home wrote that we had never intended." If Season 1 proved anything, it’s that the audience and the writers' room had very different expectations for what the reboot would look like.
