It’s official: Chris Noth will reprise his role as Mr. Big in the Sex And The City reboot.
The revival series, which is titled ‘And Just Like That…’, will follow Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker), Charlotte York (Kristin Davis) and Miranda Hobbes (Cynthia Nixon) as they navigate love and friendship in their 50s.
Back in February, Page Six reported that Chris wouldn’t appear in HBO’s upcoming reboot.
The news sparked rumours his character Mr. Big would be killed off in the revival series.
However, HBO has since confirmed that the 66-year-old will reprise his role as Carrie Bradshaw’s husband, John James Preston.
The show’s executive producer, Michael Patrick King, said: “I’m thrilled to be working with Chris again on And Just Like That… How could we ever do a new chapter of the Sex And The City story without our Mr Big?”
The 10-episode series will begin production in New York this summer.
As we previously reported, Kim Cattrall won’t return to reprise her role as Samantha Jones in the reboot.
Kim has had a long-running feud with SJP – which has been well-documented in the press.
Back in 2017, Kim spoke about their feud on Piers Morgan’s Life Stories, and claimed Sarah “could have been nicer”.
“This is really where I take to task the people from Sex And The City and specifically Sarah Jessica Parker, is that I think she could have been nicer. I really think she could have been nicer. I don’t know what her issue is,” she said at the time.
“The thing that still bothers me is this feeling of being in some way made to be the baddie. I never asked for any money, I never asked for any projects, to be thought of as some kind of diva is absolutely ridiculous.”
Months later, their feud hit headlines once again in 2018, when Kim slammed SJP for reaching out to her in the wake of her brother’s death.
After the actress announced her brother’s passing on Instagram, Sarah Jessica commented: “Dearest Kim, my love and condolences to you and yours and Godspeed to your beloved brother. Xx.”
In a shocking move, the 64-year-old fired back by dedicating a post to SJP, and wrote: “I don’t need your love or support at this tragic time @sarahjessicaparker.”

“My Mom asked me today ‘When will that @sarahjessicaparker, that hypocrite, leave you alone?’ Your continuous reaching out is a painful reminder of how cruel you really were then and now.”
“Let me make this VERY clear. (If I haven’t already) You are not my family. You are not my friend. So I’m writing to tell you one last time to stop exploiting our tragedy in order to restore your ‘nice girl’ persona,” she added. [sic]
