Good news if you’ve self cravin’ some Che. HBO announced on Tuesday that Sex and the city restart And just like that… is returning for a second season.

“I am delighted and excited to tell more stories about these vibrant, bold characters — played by these powerful, amazing actors,” executive producer Michael Patrick King said in a statement. Father. “In fact, we were all nervous. And just like that… Our sex life is back. ”

And just like that…stars Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis reprise the roles of Carrie Bradshaw, Miranda Hobbes and Charlotte York-Goldenblatt, respectively. All three women are executive producers of the spin-off. Notably absent, however, is Samantha, Kim Cattrall’s fan-favorite.

The first season featured original series stars like Chris Noth, Mario Cantone, Evan Handler and Willie Garson, who died of pancreatic cancer just months before the show premiered. And just like that… also added several new key actors, including Sara Ramirez, Sarita Choudhury, Nicole Ari Parker and Karen Pittman.

Twitter has been buzzing each week with chatter about the series’ missteps and the awkwardness of adapting these beloved, 2000s characters into the “waking” world of 2022, give each woman a friend of color to teach them about their privilege. The series was also marred in its first few weeks by sexual assault allegations against Noth, forcing HBO to cut flashbacks from him during the finale.

And then there’s the Che Diaz of it all, Sara Ramirez’s extraordinary comedian-showrunner-slash-killer-showrunner. Che instantly became the most notorious new member of the gang for his banter and ability to show Miranda’s most pitiful love side.
