What We Hope to See in ‘And Just Like That’ Season 3

The And Just Like That… Season 2 finale aired on August 24, 2023, yet news that Season 3 had already been greenlit dropped just prior to the season finale. So, now that we all know Carrie Bradshaw, Miranda Hobbes, and Charlotte York will return to tackle the large, bad city for an additional round, we now have some narrative aspirations we’d prefer to see surface. 

Spoiler Warning for the And Just Like That…Season 2 Finale 

A temporary season 2 finale recap to jog your memory… 

Let’s make a journey down memory lane and return to the distant past — August 24, 2023. Aidan tells Carrie to attend five years for him so he can are inclined to his teenage son — who desperately needs his presence consistently. (Carrie could also be his biggest love, but his children rightfully come first.) Miranda and Steve reconcile, and Miranda takes to the BBC. Charlotte prospers in her latest job — yet deals with some pushback at home. Seema meets a handsome movie star and falls in love. She merely needs to beat her anxieties and deep-seated doubts and bask within the glory of romance. Nya rekindles a spark she felt with a stranger earlier within the season — who serendipitously happens to be the Michelin Chef preparing Carrie’s “Last Supper.” Lisa, who gets pregnant earlier within the season — and proceeds to fret about how it is going to impact her now-thriving profession — has a miscarriage she blames herself for before relinquishing her guilt at Carrie’s extravagant feast. 

Got it? Good. With those closing moments in mind, what can we hope to see for our primary protagonists moving forward? 

Carrie mourns Aidan’s absence but ultimately decides so far

We cannot have a reboot or spinoff (or whatever word you deem suitable) of Sex and the City and leave the first protagonist sexless and lonely for the rest of its run. Aidan cannot expect Carrie to twiddle her thumbs in a city thriving with single, successful men who could be lucky to call the talented, insightful, and passionate fashionista their very own. 

So, we hope to see Carrie struggle with Aidan’s absence but ultimately resolve to reenter the dating world — perhaps with a bit foray into the likes of Bumble and Tinder (which might bring some much-needed levity into the situation, for everyone knows that app behavior is a far-cry from gentlemanly). Carrie might have to enter a little bit of a fun phase – less class, more carnal — and take a page from Samantha’s playbook until she’s ready to noticeably date again. (This might not be probably the most “Carrie” plotline, so it might require a considerable foundation and a heavy push from the sensuous and shameless Seema). 

Miranda and Steve learn the right way to successfully co-parent…and Steve meets someone latest

Just as Miranda and Steve sink right into a rhythm. Just as they turn into the parents Brady needs — divorced but united — Steve will meet a girl he can see a future with. It’s Steve’s turn for a latest, meaningful relationship. And Miranda, as much as she has moved on from this marriage, will still face a bit jealousy. She will witness the person he’s when he’s in love…but from the outside this time around. She will watch the brand new woman receive the gentle touch she received from him all those years ago. It’s not that she wants him back, it’s simply that nostalgia and comfortable memories have a way of abandoning poignant pings.

Brady’s response to this will go considered one of two ways — super supportive, leaving Miranda feeling just like the bad guy, or a bit hesitant and confused. We’re leaning toward the previous given Miranda’s extra-marital affairs and harsh prior treatment of the person she married. Miranda may date the girl she met after the BBC spot, but we hope this doesn’t work out. Miranda ought to be single for a bit to work out who she is, what she wants from romance, and what she needs in life. 

Charlotte’s profession thrives, and the potential for an extra-marital affair falls in her lap 

The dysfunctional work-life balance dilemma facing Charlotte and her family will dry up, and we’ll need something to boost her storyline. As her profession thrives, let’s have a possible buyer enter the image (pun intended) who’s debonair and polished. Smart and concerned with her work. A flirtatious one with an eye fixed for brunettes. 

He could have a penchant for the finer things in life, and he’ll stand 6 feet, two inches tall with windswept black hair in a designer suit so perfectly tailored he could walk the red carpet. Now, we’re not saying Charlotte will undergo with any extra-marital affairs, as such could be so antithetical to her identity. However, what’s more likely is that she is going to feel guilty for desiring him. She might want to talk together with her girlies, for she will probably be fixated on her first emotional and sexual response to this stranger — let’s call him Alexander Newhouse (proper WASP). Charlotte could have to face the cruel reality that desiring other men is just not a smudge on her status as a wife, but a natural human response. Yet, it is going to be a tricky pill to swallow for the straight-laced, Betty by the book, rule-following, societal-norm-adhering Charlotte York. 

Seema and the movie star try long-distance 

Seema has never felt a pull so strong to a person because the one she feels for the movie star she has landed. There’s only one problem: he has to fly overseas to work on a production. He asks Seema to hitch, but she explains that she has never and won’t ever sacrifice her profession for a person. And her profession is within the Big Apple.

Because these two seem head over heels in love — and since money is just not a matter for them — they can provide long-distance a shot. They can get on planes each time they need — regardless of the fee. While a long-distance relationship is tough for a lot of, it’s easier when funds are usually not a part of the dilemma. So, seeing Seema invest time and energy into this relationship is what we wish for her. We wish to see her fall so hard that she takes every reasonable step to make it work. If it still isn’t meant to be, then we are going to accept that. But giving up now appears like the unsuitable selection. 

Nya starts a passionate romance with the Michelin Star Chef 

These two have a lot heat that Nya leaves Miranda to face the wolves (Che) on her own, so she will flirt with the handsome, talented man before her. The two of them even get a bit flirtatious amongst all of Carrie’s guests during “The Last Supper.”

It goes without saying that we’re going to get a whirlwind romance between these two characters – with some mouthwatering dinners…and perhaps some mouthwatering sex scenes. This relationship — for nevertheless long it lasts — will finally help Nya move on from Andre for good, as she comes to comprehend that her ex could have been a love of her life, but he is just not the love of her life.

Lisa’s profession flourishes, and she or he steps in as considered one of Charlotte’s primary confidantes 

It’s time for Lisa to shine. Her documentary filmmaking skills are finally receiving the eye they deserve, and season 3 higher proceed to place her profession within the highlight. That being said, Charlotte and Lisa have gotten closer with each passing episode, and season 3 could be the proper time for them to achieve that “besties” peak — for Lisa to turn into someone Charlotte calls when she’s in a state of hysteria (as a substitute of Carrie). Someone she calls when she needs someone with a life just like her own: with a perspective rooted in a family structure that mimics hers — something Miranda and Carrie don’t boast.

Not to say, if the chance for an extra-marital rendezvous does wind up on the table for Charlotte, Miranda isn’t exactly the most effective person to ask (given her less-than-admirable actions) and Carrie — who has just lost Aidan after losing Big — might not be in a spot to handle such dilemmas with objective clarity. It wouldn’t be out of character for Carrie to attenuate Charlotte’s problems given Carrie’s current predicament and history. 

Will Anthony be clad in white by the season’s end? 

And as for Anthony, we now have but a couple of words…He higher attempt to put a hoop on that hot Italian poet with an accent to make you swoon by the top of the third season.

While his latest love interest is way younger, he seems mature and sexually experienced. He doesn’t appear to yearn to sow any oats, and Anthony seems to have captured his heart…a lot in order that he’s willing to remain in America for him. Is anyone up for an additional gay wedding? This time, let’s take the forged to Europe in a two-part season 3 finale wedding extravaganza.

With And Just Like That season 3 still many moons away, we’ll just must wait and see how lots of our narrative hopes and dreams come to fruition.
