The announcement that the polarizing first season of And Just Like That will conclude with a special documentary examining the legacy of Sex and the City, as well as the development of its new spin-off, has Twitter abuzz.
HBO announced the new documentary will stream on February 3, kicking off speculation of a forthcoming announcement of Season 2, which, in turn, has launched love-it-or-hate-it fights over the divisive new show.
And Just Like That sparked much debate among critics and fans of Sex and the City alike for various plot twists, including the sudden death of Carrie Bradshaw’s (Sarah Jessica Parker) longtime beau, Mr. Big (Chris Noth), Carrie’s bestie Miranda (Cynthia Nixon) coming out as a lesbian, and the introduction of nonbinary “comic” Che Diaz (Sara Ramírez).
The sudden death of actor Willie Garson, who played Carrie’s longtime friend Stanford, added a cloud of gloom to the show, and allegations of rape and sexual misconduct against Chris Noth have not helped the reception either. Then there was actress Kim Cattrall’s refusal to reprise her role as the beloved character Samantha that led to much fan disappointment. Cattrall also did not participate in the new documentary.

It will also feature cast and crew interviews, including segments with Parker, Nixon, Davis, Ramírez, Mario Cantone, David Eigenberg, Evan Handler, Nicole Ari Parker, Karen Pittman, Sarita Choudhury, and Michael Patrick King.
Now, the tweets…

And just like that, we wait for season 2 in anticipation of what was once a reputable franchise, to course-correct and bring back the integrity that this story deserves.

In the season 2 premiere of And Just Like That, Che Diaz is going to overdose on weed and pass away

The reveal that Che is on the level and being totally honest with Miranda had me on my feet.
And just like that may be suffering from Ted Lasso season 2 syndrome: Had they just dumped all the episodes at once it would be better received. Repeat viewings will redeem it!

Here’s to hoping there is no season 2 of ‘And Just Like That’ I couldn’t even finish season 1 it was so cringey.

I’m literally only watching “and just like that” for the plot. I probably won’t watch season 2 if there is one.
