And Just Like That (We're Coming Back)
Yesterday something seismic happened - HBO Max officially announced the return of And Just Like That for a second season. Yes, that means you are getting even more episodes of Shortcomings, but it also means the return of Seema Patel, LTW, and Dr. Naya Wallace. As much as I love our original girlies, when I think about AJLT I think about our new friends. A lot of that has to do with the actresses -Sarita Choudhury, Nicole Ari Parker, and Karen Pittman brought such depth to the show. And frankly a lot of warmth. They felt like stabilizing forces in a whole lot of crazy.
The main thing I want from the second season is more of our new friends - maybe they expand the show to 13 episodes and give each new girl a dedicated episode, because clearly we have to stay with our girls and follow them. But these characters and these performers deserve more and I want more.
Oh and yes, I am craving me some Che also. But I think I'd like Sarah Drew (April from Grey's) to take over the role. And then the next season another Grey's cast off can play Che. It'd be wild and I love it.
What do you want from AJLT? And please don't say nothing!
