The second season premiere of “And Just Like That…”, a sequel to “Sex and the City,” premiered on MAX on Thursday, and it wastes no time getting down to business. More substantial story threads for all of these people and a maturing of their friendships were established in the first two episodes. Samantha Jones and sex, two significant aspects that were absent from the first season of “And Just Like That…,” are addressed in the second season opener.

With the possibility of future difficulties, this plotline makes Miranda  Hobbes and Che seem more genuine and suggests that they might get together.

In the first episode of the second season of “And Just Like That,” the main characters from the original series are reintroduced.

The current partners of Miranda, Kim Charlotte, Seema Patel (Sarita Choudhury), Carrie Bradshaw, and Lisa are all depicted, while Dr. Nya Wallace (Karen Pittman) enjoys her alone time while her husband is away on a music tour. The women decide to go to the Met Gala, but Lisa declines her husband’s offer of assistance because she is worried about earning money for her new project. Miranda, who left her husband and moved to Los Angeles with Che, speaks with Nya about their difficulties in Hollywood and their separation.

Jackie Nee (Bobby Lee), a coworker of Carrie’s, and Charlotte and Lisa, who are brought by Anthony Marentino (Mario Cantone), go to see their dresses fit for the Met Gala. Charlotte encounters an unforeseen problem, though, when her kids tell her that their father believes he is accompanying her to the occasion. In a different plot, Carrie gets a call from someone in a circumstance comparable to hers with Franklyn (Ivan Hernandez). She hesitates but ultimately decides to go on a date with him.

When Miranda and Che receive a call from Carrie, Che makes a remark that their relationship is simply about sex. Zed (William Abadie), Seema’s lover, wants her to see his son, which conflicts with her plans to attend the Met Gala. During lunch, Seema admits she will no longer be able to attend the event, prompting Charlotte to invite Anthony to go in her place.

Nya meets a lovely man at a restaurant, but she gets irritated when her husband tells her during a Facetime conversation that there is another woman in his room. A fashion emergency arises when Smoke, the dress designer, shows up carrying an incomplete outfit. Jackie outlines Franklyn’s likely reactions after finding out about Carrie and Franklyn’s relationship.

When Miranda confronts Che about their moody behavior in Los Angeles, she finds out that they’ve been on a diet because the costume department has been pressuring them to. Miranda acknowledges her worries that their relationship will only be sexual. After making peace, they order pizza.

When Seema meets Zed, his kid, and his ex-wife Victoire (Rachel Kylian) for lunch, she is shocked to learn that Zed still lives with her. After appearing to split up with Zed, Seema chooses to go to the Met Gala with Carrie, leaving Anthony out once more. While Lisa relaxes by getting amorous with her husband, Carrie struggles with her unfinished outfit. Lisa ultimately emerges wearing a lovely gown and floral headpiece, and as they failed to book transportation, she and her husband choose to walk to the Metropolitan Museum.

Harry Goldenblatt (Evan Handler) and Charlotte dispute about what they hope to get out of the Met Gala, and Charlotte challenges Harry’s very presence. She phones Anthony to let him know the event is still scheduled. Smoke had a breakdown about the unfinished gown but succeeds in finishing a cape that Carrie wears with her well-known Vivienne Westwood wedding gown from the first “Sex and the City” film. By appearing at the Met Gala Monday wearing a distinctive outfit, Carrie rescues the day and everything goes as planned.

Overall, the first episode hits a good mix of correcting prior complaints, adding additional humor to the production, and introducing fresh plotlines for the next season. The episode makes suggestions about the characters’ potential for development and challenges, even though some subplots are yet unfinished. The episode has a fun and nostalgic quality thanks to the humor, stylish moments, and Met Gala plot.
