This article contains spoilers for And Just Like That... season one

Sarah Jessica Parker has shared a tiny sneak peek of the script for season two of And Just Like That, as she confirms that production is officially underway.

The actress posted a photo of episode 201 of the Sex and the City spin-off on Instagram, and added the caption: "Just this much. For now. XSJ."

The post received a lot of love from fans and fellow celebs on social media, with It's a Sin's Olly Alexander commenting: "Omggg yes."

Co-star Sarita Choudhury added a "Yes!"

"And just like that…. I got real excited!!!!" a fan added.

Sara Ramirez, who plays non-binary comedian Che Diaz in the comedy drama, also shared a photo of the show's new scripts for episodes 201 and 202 along with her place card during what looked like a table read. Sara added the caption: "Shhhhh….."

The finale of series one of And Just Like That left us hanging with an open ending, and we couldn't help but wonder... Did Miranda settle into LA life with her lover Che Diaz? Has Carrie found romance after Big with her silver fox podcast producer? And will Charlotte ever brave an all-white outfit again?

Back in March this year, SJP confirmed that the show would be coming back for season 2 - which will hopefully address all of our unanswered questions.

"And Just Like That... Season 2. Thank you to our audience. Plain and simple. You are our heartbeat. We love you so. X, SJ," the actress wrote along with a photo of the show's cast on Instagram.

The 10-part spin-off followed Sarah Jessica Parker as our favourite sex columnist-turned-podcaster Carrie, and friends Cynthia Nixon's Miranda, and Kristin Davis's Charlotte, as they navigated love, life and friendships in their 50s in their beloved NYC.

Here's everything else we know about And Just Like That season 2...

And Just Like That season two: The release date

Sarah Jessica Parker has confirmed that filming for season two of And Just Like That is underway after sharing a picture of the latest script.

Earlier this year, HBO and SJP confirmed that the SATC spin-off would be back, so we're in for a bit of a wait. The series arrived last December, but as production has only just started, it's unlikely that it will be back in time for this Christmas. We'll keep you updated.

And Just Like That season two: The cast

HBO also shared a clip from And Just Like That to confirm series 2 - and if the video is anything to go by, it looks as though we can expect the return of Sara Ramirez as non-binary comedian Che Diaz, Nicole Ari Parker as the glamorous Lisa Todd Wexley, Miranda's professor, Karen Pittman back as Dr. Nya Wallace and Carrie's realtor friend, Sarita Choudhury returning as Seema. And of course, Mario Cantone will be back as Anthony.

Sara confirmed her character Che's return with photos of the new scripts for season two during a recent read through, also confirming that production has begun.

Obviously, SJP's Carrie, Cynthia Nixon's Miranda and Kristin Davis's Charlotte will be at the centre of the drama once more.

We'll have to wait and see if Evan Handler's Harry, husband to Charlotte, and their two daughters, Lily (Cathy Ang) and Rose (Alexa Swinton) will be reprising their roles.

It's not known whether David Eigenberg's Steve will be back either. He and Miranda separated towards the end of the series, although they agreed to co-parent their teenage son, so Steve could remain on the periphery.

Kim Cattrall did not want to return to the spin-off as fan favourite Samantha, and her character appeared through text conversations with Carrie. We don't expect her to reprise her role in the new series either, with Parker saying she wasn't sure she would be OK with Cattrall coming back given their very public fallout.

"I don't think I would, because I think there's just too much public history of feelings on her part that she's shared," the actress explained to Variety. "I haven't participated in or read articles, although people are inclined to let me know."

And we're all desperate to know if Ivan Hernandez will be back as Franklyn, Carrie's sexy podcast producer. They pair shared a passionate kiss in the finale, so fans will want to know if Carrie has found love again after Big.

And Just Like That... The plot

And Just Like That certainly delivered us a series of surprises: Mr Big's death, Miranda throwing caution to the wind in pursuit of a new love interest, Carrie dipping her vintage Manolos back into the dating pool and reclaiming her iconic purple sequin Fendi baguette after it was stolen some twenty years ago...

So, what's next for our favourite 50-something women of New York?

The series concluded with Miranda planning to give up a huge work opportunity to abscond with Che to LA instead, Charlotte's Jewish coming-of-age as she took on her daughter's bat mitzvah, and Carrie releasing Big's ashes in Paris. Then there was *that* kiss with her producer Franklyn - so could Carrie be moving with a new relationship?

Roll on season 2.

And Just Like That... is available to watch on Sky Comedy and stream on NOW TV.
