And just like that, another popular character will return to the Sex And The City reboot series.

Actor Chris Noth will reprise his role as Mr Big (real name John James Preston) in And Just Like That…, joining co-stars Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis.

The reboot, which will air on streaming service HBO Max, will follow Carrie (Parker), Miranda (Nixon) and Charlotte (Davis) as they navigate life and relationships in their 50s.

The fourth main character Samantha, played by Kim Cattrall, will not return.

The series, from executive producer Michael Patrick King, will have 10 30-minute episodes. It’s scheduled to begin production this summer in New York.

King said in a statement that he was thrilled to be working with Noth again in the reboot. “How could we ever do a new chapter of the Sex And The City story without our Mr Big?”

Carrie and Mr Big’s relationship was a central focus in the original series and the ensuing movies. 

The show recently announced a new cast member, Sara Ramirez of Grey’s Anatomy fame. Ramirez will star as Che Diaz, “a non-binary, queer, stand-up comedian that hosts a podcast on which Carrie Bradshaw is regularly featured”.

Sex And The City aired on HBO between 1998 and 2004. It was created by Darren Star and based on Candace Bushnell’s book. The series ran for six seasons and was followed by two movies, in 2008 and 2010. A third movie was discussed but never happened.
