And Just Like That has only been on the air for over a month, and already fans are wondering: will it return for another season?

At the moment, HBO Max hasn’t made an announcement, but Sarita Choudhury, who plays sassy and independent realtor Seema Patel and befriends Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker), revealed if she would want to hop on board again.

“Just the other day, I was thinking, ‘I wonder.’ Because there’s a point where they let you know if there is or not and we’re not at that point yet,” she told Entertainment Tonight. “I was thinking, ‘God, I hope there is,’ And also, I was thinking, you know when you bring in new characters and you just start establishing and everyone’s getting used to all of us having grown up, Carrie’s grown up. I feel like the second [season] would be able to just jump into who they really are as opposed to getting the audience used to seeing what they’re seeing. So I would love a second season, but I really don’t know.”

The actress has starred in a slew of flicks, but she shared she’s “never played a character like this.”

“I’m always usually in the darker, independent films,” she noted. “And suddenly I’m fully decked out in high heels, lipstick, moving fast, talking fast, and it was more, ‘Can I do this?’ And then it started to dawn on me, ‘Wait, I don’t even know how to enter this series…’ I didn’t want to ruin this series, you know what I mean?”

Fortunately, she has really connected with the role. “I’m kind of addicted to playing Seema now,” she said. “At the beginning, it was so nerve-racking for me. Now after I’ve done seven episodes, and I’ve had a break for Christmas and New Year’s and, I don’t know, I miss her, which I’m not really like that.”

In the ’90s, the show focused on a group of four gal pals — Carrie, Miranda Hobbes (Cynthia Nixon), Charlotte York (Kristin Davis) and Samantha Jones (Kim Cattrall), the latter of whom is not in the reboot. Now, fans are getting to meet other diverse and fun characters, which has been interesting.

“I kind of love the fact that they brought in four new characters and gave them new storylines because usually that doesn’t happen. Usually, you include characters, but they still remain side. I feel like they’re making an effort to kind of … I’m like, ‘Oh my god, I have a family. I have a mother and a father.’ You start to see cracks in Seema’s kind of perfection, boss lady character,” she noted. “Things like that. I was like, ‘Wow, they’re making a real effort, and I’m the one who has to now fill it out a bit, and as we move forward, the subtleties will now come more and more.’ So, I do think they did a good job, but I’m sure criticism abounds. That’s normal.”

And since Seema is single, the Hollywood star is hopeful she will find the right person one day.

“They’re not all duds, it’s just, even I, I take a beat when I think of who Seema would like,” she said. “I feel like if you looked at the guys Seema went out with, you’d be like, ‘What?’ … I think Seema would literally see one thing in someone and be like, ‘Him.’ And then a day later would be like, ‘Oh no, not him’ … I think she would look for someone who could handle her, and I think that’s the problem. I don’t think she’s found that.”
