Romance might be back on the cards for Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker) in the second season of And Just Like That.

The sequel saw the writer struggling with grief after the death of long-running love interest Mr Big (Chris Noth).

But reports are circulating that the fashion icon could find love again with former flame Aidan Shaw (John Corbett).

Carrie had an on-and-off relationship with the fan-favourite in seasons three and four of the original series, breaking up twice because the New Yorker cheated on him and later couldn’t commit after they got engaged.

The furniture maker also made an appearance in film Sex and the City 2, set in Abu Dhabi, where viewers learned he was married and had three kids – which didn’t stop him from sharing a kiss with Carrie.

According to John has signed up to reprise the role of the down-to-earth carpenter for a ‘substantial, multi-episode arc’ and will ‘reunite with former love Carrie.’ Oooh er.

The 61-year-old actor has previously teased his return as Aidan, saying falsely in 2021 that he was ‘going to do the show’, adding that he would be in ‘quite a few’ of the 10 episodes.
