In the upcoming second season of Sex and the City spin-off, And Just Like That, we will see the return of Carrie Bradshaw’s ex-boyfriend, Aidan Shaw.
This decision, which has divided fans, has been explained by production reasons, as it’s easier to bring back a familiar character than to introduce a new one.
However, some, including the show’s long-time stylist Patricia Field, have questioned whether Aidan is the right choice.
He’s often been criticized for being too “beige” and perfect, with his cute dog, carpentry, and willingness to tolerate Carrie’s selfishness.
Moreover, he and Carrie have broken up twice already, making the reunion seem like a poor substitute, especially since Carrie’s main love rival, Mr. Big, is now dead.
Carrie’s dating history has been a subject of fierce debate, with many viewers agreeing that Aidan was always the one.
Still, others feel that he’s too good for Carrie, given how she treated him.
They’re a terrible match, and he has already forgiven her for having an affair with Mr. Big. However, some feel that there were only two men worth a second date in the show’s history: Harry Goldenblatt and Smith.
Despite all of this, Aidan remains a popular character, and the show’s producers hope that viewers will welcome his return.
Despite the mixed reactions to the news of Aidan’s comeback, it’s clear that Sex and the City fans are excited about the upcoming season.
Many are wondering what will happen to Carrie and her friends as they navigate their way through middle age.
They hope to see their favorite characters grow and evolve while staying true to their original selves.
And while Aidan may not be everyone’s cup of tea, his presence will undoubtedly add some much-needed drama to the show.
