Sarah Jessica Parker is thrilled to be back on the set of And Just Like That…!

On Wednesday, Parker posted a social media image of her preparing to begin filming season 2 of HBO Max's Sex and the City sequel wearing leather heels and cargo pants, with what looks like a plastic pigeon sitting beside her.

Parker captioned the image: "First exterior. Streets of NY. X, SJ"

That same day, the actress was spotted on set, beaming beside her longtime costar, Kristin Davis. The duo were photographed walking the streets of NYC, with Parker wearing the same gray cargo jumpsuit and Davis in a sheer, polka-dotted black blouse with a pink bow and black pencil skirt.

The pair couldn't contain their happiness as they walked side-by-side with nearby crew members holding umbrellas above them.

Production on season 2 comes shortly after the death of Parker's stepfather, Paul Giffin Forste.

The actress announced in a statement on Sept. 29 that Forste — who married Parker's mother, Barbara, in 1969 — had died after "an unexpected and rapid illness."

The Sex and the City star, 57, had pulled out of the New York City Ballet 2022 Fall Fashion Gala at Lincoln Center and global virtual press conference for Hocus Pocus 2 that same day after learning of her stepfather's death.

Just a day earlier, Parker had walked the purple carpet at the Hocus Pocus 2 premiere alongside husband Matthew Broderick and their twin 13-year-old daughters, Tabitha Hodge and Marion Loretta Elwell.
