In the last And just like that Season 2 trailer Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker) is the most relatable she’s ever been. It’s not the stressful retail therapy shopping that really resonates, or her stove being used more for storage than cooking – it’s the way she immediately turned off her laptop after sending a risky message to his ex.
One of the first trailers for the second season of the Max series revealed that Aidan Shaw (John Corbett) – who Carrie had dated, was at one time engaged and at another cheated on – would be the last love of Sex and the City interest in joining the revival. What it didn’t reveal, however, was how exactly his comeback happened.

“Hey Stranger… Do you remember me? IF this is still your email, it’s me – Carrie,” she wrote in the risque email. “I was just thinking of you the other day… and I was wondering how you are doing. So, how are you?”
When Carrie and Aidan meet face to face for dinner, he is lost in a haze of nostalgia, saying, “Sitting here with you is like 10 years [flew by].” It’s a more heartfelt reunion than one would hope for when it comes to Carrie and Samantha (Kim Cattrall).
Ahead of the new trailer, it was announced that Cattrall would be returning for a brief appearance on the show, though not in the traditional sense. Her scene would center around a phone call between Samantha and Carrie, as opposed to the text messages they exchanged at the end of the first season. It was essentially the only way to get her involved without her having to come into contact with anyone in the cast, or even showrunner Michael Patrick King.
And the rest of the cast, primarily Miranda (Cynthia Nixon) and Charlotte (Kristin Davis), have their own stuff anyway. Miranda goes through a tough time with her partner as Charlotte navigates motherhood, her career, and way too many hits at the bar. Even old.
