The revival series, called And so …, was officially announced on January 10 after years of rumors that the show would be returning. Slated to begin filming in New York this spring, the series is slated for 10 episodes, though a premiere date has not been announced. Original cast members Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon. and Kristin Davis are ready to return. And after years of bad blood with Parker, Cattrall had previously ruled out a return to any Sex and the city projects, with HBO content director Max stating that Samantha’s absence will be explained as a fading friendship.
However, Noth will not be returning according to a new report. For Page six, the actor will not reprise his role as the iconic Mr. Big in the Sex and the city Renaissance. There are no details on why Noth does not return, nor is it specified how Mr. Big’s absence from the series will be explained. The report also claims that David Eigenberg, who plays Miranda’s husband Steve, will not be returning, although a representative told the publication “the actor is in negotiations to appear on the series.“
If Noth doesn’t return for revival, it’s not really a surprise. Nothing has seemed about him Sex and the city franchise for a time, previously admitting that “hated“the end of the first movie. For this reason, it makes sense that he is reluctant to repeat the character. Also, Noth likely has a grueling filming schedule for his new series The Equalizer, which would mean that he probably wouldn’t have time to appear in the revival series anyway, at least not in a meaningful capacity.
However, there is no guarantee that Mr. Big has been included in the new series. Shortly after Sex and the city 3 failed in 2017, a report appeared stating that Noth’s character was going to die of a heart attack early in the script. If that’s true, then the writers and producers could use the same plot for a revival series. Or, considering Big and Carrie struggled throughout their relationship and especially in the second movie, maybe the two of them could have divorced between the end of the second movie and the beginning of the new series. It may be that Mr. Big’s character has simply run its course, causing the Sex and the city revival series better without it.
