And Just Like That RENEWED for Season 3 at HBO’s Max – ahead of much-anticipated return of Kim Cattrall as Samantha Jones
And Just Like That has been renewed for a third season at HBO’s streaming service Max, just days before the much-anticipated return of Kim Cattrall’s iconic Sex and the City character Samantha Jones.
In a statement, Max’s Head of Original Content Sarah Aubrey, said: ‘As we approach the highly anticipated season finale on Thursday, we raise our cosmos to [showrunner] 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.’
Aubrey added: ‘We cannot wait for audiences to see where season three will take our favorite New Yorkers.’
The revival show features original stars Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon, Kristin Davis, David Eigenberg, Mario Cantone, and many more.
Meanwhile, showrunner Michael Patrick King said: ‘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.’

She’s back this week: Samantha Jones (Kim Cattrall) will make a triumphant return in the season finale
Fans of the original Sex and the City have had a love-hate relationship with the new revival, that has sorely been missing Cattrall’s sex-positive PR guru Samantha Jones.
In her absence, a host of new characters were introduced in the shape of Dr. Nya Wallace (Karen Pittman), Seema Patel (Sarita Choudhury), and Lisa Todd Wexley (Nicole Ari Parker).
However, viewers were stunned to learn earlier this year that despite being extremely vocal about her desire to move on from the character Samantha, Cattrall had secretly agreed to return in a surprise cameo appearance.
‘It’s very interesting to get a call from the head of HBO saying, “What can we do?”‘ Cattrall told The View in June, before adding with cheeky smile, ‘And I went, “Hmmm… let me get creative.”
Cattrall’s rider was pretty simple (aside from a no doubt eye-watering pay check): She wanted original costume designer Patricia Field to dress her for the scene.
