David Eigenberg will return as Steve, Miranda’s estranged husband and Evan Handler will be back as Charlotte’s husband Harry.

Kim Cattrall will not return as Samantha Jones in any capacity. Showrunner Michael Patrick King confirmed that Cattrall declined to reprise her role and that the show would explore what happens between Samantha and Carrie in her absence.

Who Else Will Appear in Season 2?

Among the notable new cast members are Nicole Ari Parker as Lisa Todd Wexley and Sarita Choudhury as Seema Patel. Victor Garber will join the cast as a character named Dustin, while Cathy Ang and Alexa Swinton will return as Charlotte’s children Lily and Rose. Fans of the original series can also look forward to the return of Candice Bergen, Mario Cantone, and John Corbett.

What About Aidan Shaw?

John Corbett will reprise his role as Aidan Shaw, the furniture maker and one of Carrie’s former flames. In season one, Carrie reconnected with Aidan, who is now divorced, and the two shared a kiss. It’s unclear what their relationship status will be in season 2.

What Will Happen in Season 2?

According to the trailer, the new season will explore themes of resilience and rebound. It will follow Carrie, Miranda, and Charlotte as they navigate life in their 50s. All three must cope with major life changes such as the death of a spouse, the end of a long-term marriage, and children who are growing up too fast.

What About Che Diaz?

Season one introduced new character Che Diaz played by Sara Ramirez. The character, who is non-binary, became Miranda’s friend and confidante. In season 2, Diaz’s storyline will continue to be developed. “One of my burning passions about season two is Che,” show creator Michael Patrick King said in an interview with Variety. “I want to show the dimension of Che that people didn’t see, for whatever reason—because they were blinded, out of fear or terror. I want to show more of Che rather than less of Che. Like, really.”
