Currently, according to Screen Rant, there has not been a second season announcement for And Just Like That. Still, fans who want to enjoy more of Carrie Bradshaw’s adventures can rewatch all six seasons of the original series, Sex and the City on HBO Max. The show, which premiered on television in 1998, became a cultural landmark and shot Parker to instant fame.
The show ran on television through 2004, and after it went off the air, two Sex and the City feature films were released: one in 2008 and another in 2010. There has also been a prequel series and other auxiliary material based on the SATC universe.
These days, fans still turn to the original series as something that is both comforting and edgy, a show that deals as much with female friendships as it does with the plight of the working woman. With more fans than ever discovering the series, thanks to And Just Like That, it is likely that the original series will enjoy a major resurgence of popularity.
