Since the announcement of Sex and the City reboot, “And Just Like That”, rumours have run rife. We’re here to put one of those to rest after HBO Max announced Chris Noth would indeed reprise his role of Mr. Big. As reported by Deadline, executive producer Michael Patrick King has 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?”
It comes after Page Six inaccurately reported that Mr. Big would not return to the screen in February. Noth quickly responded to the news at the time to tease his potential return on Instagram writing, “Well if Page Six says it … It must be true,” along with a telltale winky-face emoji.
In addition to Mr. Big’s return, John Corbett’s character and Carries former boyfriend, Aidan, will return to the reboot. Do we sense a love triangle occurring?
Just recently Noth reflected on his favourite scenes from the original series. And it’s not what you think. According to the actor one scene comes from the 1998 episode “The Drought”.
Noth appeared on the Kelly Clarkson Show and revealed it is where Carrie passes wind while they’re in bed. Mortified, she buries herself under the sheets, with Big replying, “It might be worse under there.”
“I insisted on doing the sound to get it right,” Noth said, “because I’m an expert in farts.”
A statement from HBO Max says, “The new Max Original series is based on the book, Sex and the City, by Candice Bushnell and the original TV series created by Darren Star. The series will follow Carrie, Miranda and Charlotte as they navigate the journey from the complicated reality of life and friendship in their 30s to the even more complicated reality of life and friendship in their 50s.”
