Likely thanks to delays caused by the now settled dual Hollywood strikes, we won’t see the third season of Max’s And Just Like That until 2025.
The return was confirmed in a Max promo released earlier today with first looks of its upcoming 2024/2025 lineup. The spot also confirmed previously announced 2025 premieres for HBO’s Euphoria, The White Lotus and The Last of Us.

A specific premiere date for the Sex and the City continuation series was never set, but the writers room was back in operation beginning in early November following resolution of the WGA strike, and production start pending resolution of the SAG-AFTRA strike. It was just ratified last night with 78.33% of ballots in favor of the November 8 tentative agreement with the AMPTP.
It won’t be the first lengthy delay between seasons of the Sex and the City sequel. There were 15 months between the Season 1 finale on Feb. 3, 2022 and the Season 2 premiere on June 22, 2023. The series was greenlit for a third season in August.
In Season 2, the series brought back franchise favorites John Corbett, returning as Carrie’s (Sarah Jessica Parker) “one that got away” Aidan Shaw, and Kim Cattrall in a small cameo in the Season 2 finale, reprising her role as Samantha Jones.
In Season 2, following the death of her beloved husband Mr. Big (Chris Noth), Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker) moved on this past season to her longtime standby, Aidan Shaw (John Corbett). Their reconnection was swift and intense but as time has passed and their lives evolved, is there a world where Carrie and Aidan can make a real go at it? It’s complicated but hasn’t it always been?
Miranda is on a journey of self-discovery as her relationship with Che (Sara Ramirez) has concluded and now she’s unsure how to label herself or if she needs to at all. Charlotte (Kristin Davis) is on a similar path, figuring out her identity outside of being a devoted wife and mother.
The series is developed and executive produced by Michael Patrick King, alongside executive producers John Melfi, Sarah Jessica Parker, Kristin Davis, Cynthia Nixon, Julie Rottenberg and Elisa Zuritsky. The HBO series Sex and the City was created by Darren Star and based on the book Sex and the City by Candace Bushnell.
