Chris Noth Drops A Major Hint About The Sex And The City Reboot

In January 2021, Sarah Jessica Parker posted a teaser video on her Instagram account, revealing that Sex and the City would be getting a 10-episode reboot on HBO Max titled And Just Like That,  nearly two decades after the Emmy Award-winning show wrapped.

Cynthia Nixon confirmed she'd be reprising her role as Miranda Hobbes by also sharing the video alongside the caption, "You, me, New York...anything is possible @JustLikeThatMax @HBOMax #AndJustLikeThat #SATCNextChapter." Kristin Davis also shared the same teaser, confirming the revival of her character Charlotte York. She added the caption, "Anything is possible....Meet you there! Coming to @hbomax #AndJustLikeThat #SATCNextChapter @justlikethatmax."

Notably not returning is Kim Catrall, who plays the fourth member of the original ensemble, Samantha Jones. The actress was vocal about her lack of interest in reprising her role when there was chatter of a third movie being made. In Piers Morgan Life Stories in 2017, she told Morgan of her character (per BBC), "I played it past the finish line and then some, and I loved it and another actress should play it."

Fans were hit with another blow when Page Six reported that Chris Noth, who played Carrie Bradshaw's love interest in the series' six seasons, would not be joining the 10-episode reboot. Page Six also reported that David Eigenberg — who played Steve, Miranda's husband and the father of her child — would also not be returning.

However, Noth replied to a few fans on Instagram, implying these reports may be false.

Chris Noth hinted he may be appearing in the 'Sex and the City' reboot after all

Fans have flooded Chris Noth's Instagram account reacting to the news that he may not be a part of the Sex and the City reboot. One Instagram user begged him to "please reconsider" and telling him, "your fans need you." According to Daily Mail, Noth replied to this comment saying, "well if page six says it... it must be true," accompanied with a winky face emoji.

Noth also replied to another fan comment. One user wrote that "her heart is [broken heart emoji]," to which he responded, "Everything changes- including announcements in the rags." These hints are leading Sex and the City followers to believe that Mr. Big will play a part in the 10-episode limited series. There is no word on how many episodes he'll appear in, or if David Eigenberg, who plays Steve, will join him.

Sara Jessica Parker revealed what inspired the reboot during a virtual benefit, according to The Hollywood Reporter. "It actually happened during shelter in place, I was listening to a podcast and it occurred to me that Michael Patrick and I had never talked about our experience working and producing the show," Parker said. "We started talking about maybe doing a podcast and as we were talking about that we just realized 'Why are we doing a podcast? Should we maybe think about a new chapter?'"

Production is expected to begin in spring 2021, per E! News.
