John Corbett, who played one of the several boyfriends of Carrie Bradshaw through the original Sex And The City’s runtime, may be returning to the character Aidan Shaw in what was described as a “substantial arc” on the second season of And Just Like That...

Aidan’s return has yet to be officially confirmed by anyone at HBO Max or the creative team, but fans are certainly excited by the prospect. Corbett also told Page Six by saying he may appear in “quite a few” episodes of the second season. Parker later laughed off that comment on Watch What Happens Live and said Corbett was “doing that as a joke.”

Corbett’s Aidan and Sarah Jessica Parker’s Carrie had a romance arc loved by fans and were even engaged. Carrie suddenly broke the engagement off after she realized Aidan still didn’t trust her from an affair she had with Mr. Big (Chris Noth) early in their relationship.

Their last encounter happened in Sex And The City 2 when they ran into each other at an Abu Dhabi market and shared a kiss despite Aidan being married and Carrie being with Mr. Big. Since Big famously passed away in the pilot of And Just Like That… most of Carrie’s story focused on her grieving and healing process. She may be more ready to date now since she kissed the character Franklyn (Ivan Hernandez) at the end of season one.
