“She is a cold, wonderful diva of publishing,” King told the outlet.

He also teased other “heavy-hitter performers” guest-starring in And Just Like That’s second season, among them famous feminist Gloria Steinem – who will be playing herself.

King then revealed more details about Sam Smith’s appearance in the show after the Unholy singer was previously spotted filming an unknown role, which we now know will see them play themself.

“Two days after they won the Grammy, they’re on our show with a Carrie necklace that says ‘Sam.’ They said they and their sisters all have them,” King states. “That is the gold of having done a show that people liked: you call Sam Smith to play this nice part that we needed, and they’re like, ‘Yes, cause I love the show.’ That’s really thrilling.”

Beyond that, King kept quiet – though did share that there will be “a couple of surprises every now and then” in terms of other guest appearances.
