The ongoing polarized reception to HBO Max’s Sex and the City spinoff And Just Like That has taken another strange and unexpected turn.
A new report suggests that while HBO Max is keen for another season, the creative minds behind the show may not be sold on the idea.TVLine reports that head writer Michael Patrick King and star Sarah Jessica Parker have not yet agreed to another season of the show, and that no plans for a Season 2 can begin until they do.“It’s honestly Michael and Sarah Jessica[‘s] decision,” HBO Max’s Chief Content Officer Casey Bloys told the outlet. “They need to make sure they want to keep going.”“I believe they will.
They came to us with this idea of Big dying as a way to get into a story about women in their 50s. I think they want to make sure they have something they’re equally excited by… They’re talking about story.
I believe they’re going to come to us with something they’re excited about.Bloys added that And Just Like That scored the biggest ratings for any HBO Max show to date, so execs are “excited” about its future, “but we’re just letting them have their process and think about the show and what they want to do.”TVLine also reports the busy schedule of the show’s actors also poses a major hurdle.
