Here’s What Sarah Jessica Parker Has To Say About John Corbett’s AJLT Absence

John previously shared that he'd be reviving his role as Aidan in the reboot.


Anyone who watched And Just Like That were left questioning where Aidan was throughout the series. Halfway through, we were wondering if he was going to swoop in to save both the day and the season. But after the finale, it quickly sank in that there would be no mention of Aidan, never mind an appearance.

We were all expecting it, as John Corbett who plays the character even said himself that he was taking part in the reboot. He told Page Six: “I’m going to do the show.”

Adding that the “[the news is] very exciting. I think I might be in quite a few. I like all those people, they’ve been very nice to me.”

But now Sarah Jessica Parker has given her two cents on exactly this while speaking on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen.

“He actually reached out very kindly, ’cause he’s nothing if not a gentleman, and apologized for doing that as a joke.

“And then I was like, ’No, no, no. I mean, it’s a free country, first of all, and second of all, I thought it was kind of delightful and fun.'”

SJP was then asked if John may be appearing in future episodes of the show, to which she replied: “Having said that, I think he would be … well I’m not gonna — I mean, yes, all of it is possible. All of it is possible.”

Just recently, AJLT writer Julie Rottenberg and executive producer Michael Patrick King have opened up about John’s comments, and let’s just say it got a bit awkward.

“John Corbett should be writing personal apology notes,” Julie told Deadline. “We didn’t say anything.”

Michael then added “The fact of the matter is, we never said anything about Aidan, just like we never said, Steve and Carrie or getting together. We always try to be very restrained and look at the reality of what people are experiencing and it has nothing to do with Aidan coming or not coming.

“It really just felt like this was a lot for Carrie. This season was a lot. We wanted to get her through this and into the light – the last episode is called, ‘Seeing the Light.’ We wanted to get her out. [Aidan’s return] is a big storyline that everybody at home wrote that we had never intended.”
