And Just Like That will officially include John Corbett as Aidan Shaw. While Aidan’s inclusion in the series could be benign, it seems entirely possible that Carrie and her former flame could rekindle their love. No matter what his role is in the Sex and the City Reboot, Corbett is prepared. The iconic actor recently revealed that he has Aidan’s wardrobe at the ready.  

John Corbett will return for the Sex and the City reboot

Information about And Just Like That hasn’t been easy to come by. After the initial announcement in January 2021, all fell relatively quiet. Fans still don’t know what the storyline will be or how the writing team will deal with the absence of Kim Cattrall. Now, as the production team gets closer to filming, more information is being released.

Last week, David Eigenberg, the actor who portrayed Steve Brady, confirmed he’ll return for the HBO Max limited series. Now, Corbett has revealed that he will also reprise his role. The inclusion of Corbett is an interesting move. Chris Noth, the actor who portrayed Mr. Big, hasn’t yet confirmed his involvement. Fans have been discussing what it could all mean. It sounds like Corbett has been ready to reprise his role for years, though.

John Corbett revealed that he got to keep all of Aidan Shaw’s clothes

Fans aren’t exactly sure what Corbett’s return to the Sex and the City reboot means yet, but one thing is for sure, wardrobe might be able to save a pretty penny. During a recent interview with Glamour, Corbett revealed that he was allowed to keep all of the clothing he wore while portraying Aidan. Apparently, he still has most of it.

Corbett told the publication that he kept everything, right down to the Calvin Klein underwear he sported in a season 4 episode where he likened himself to the Green Lantern to deal with his insecurity about Mr. Big. Corbett noted he also regularly wears a pair of Prada shoes he wore during his time on the series.

Corbett isn’t the only actor who managed to score some wardrobe pieces during their time on Sex and the City. Sarah Jessica Parker also revealed that she kept much of her Carrie wardrobe. In 2017, Parker told Vulture that she has about 95% of Carrie’s wardrobe archived. She, unlike Corbett, doesn’t wear the pieces, though.

‘Sex and the City’: How Much Will Sarah Jessica Parker Make For Her Role In ‘And Just Like That’?

Fans knew Carrie for being a fashionista who loved designer shoes and clothing. Parker, who is also known for her iconic fashion sense, is a bit more sentimental. She told the publication that her favorite Sex and the City wardrobe piece isn’t an expensive dress or a pair of Manolo Blahnik shoes. Instead, she treasures Carrie’s signature nameplate necklace.
