Sarah Jessica Parker confirms John Corbett’s return as Aidan in ‘And Just Like That’ Season 2 View Story
In September, Parker confirmed that fans will see Corbett in Season 2 of And Just Like That.
“Could be, could be,” Parker teased in an interview with Entertainment Tonight when asked about the return of her character’s former love, Aidan Shaw (Corbett). “Well, you know, I can’t be secretive about it anymore.”
In 2021, Corbett falsely claimed to Page Six that he would join the revival series in its first season.
“I think I can be in quite a few [episodes]”I like all those people, they have been very good to me.”
When Corbett was nowhere to be found, fans were disappointed by his absence, prompting series executive producer Michael Patrick King and writer Julie Rottenberg to release a statement to Deadline at the time.
Sarah Jessica Parker breaks down ‘very painful’ Kim Cattrall Beef in tell-all interview.
“John Corbett should have written personal notes of apology. We didn’t say anything,” Rottenberg said, and King agreed, “The fact of the matter is, we never said anything about Aidan. We always try to be very reserved and watch the reality of what people are experiencing and it has nothing to do with Aidan coming or not coming.”
According to Parker, Corbett has apologized for his faux pas.
“He actually came over very graciously, because he’s nothing if not a gentleman, and apologized for doing it as a joke,” she said during an appearance on “Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen.” “And then I was like, ‘No, no, no, I mean, it’s a free country, first of all, and secondly, I thought it was kind of cool and fun.’
Although it remains a mystery whether Aidan and SJP’s Carrie Bradshaw will reunite as lovers, Corbett’s return comes after fans saw the death of Carrie’s longtime love, Mr. Big (played by dashing actor Chris Noth) in the first season.
Much of the inaugural season featured Bradshaw coming to terms with her husband’s sudden death and re-entering the New York City dating scene as a widow.
While Aidan and Carrie’s romance in season two isn’t guaranteed, their relationship has sparked decades of debate as many fans believe Aidan is the man Carrie should marry.
