‘Sex and the City’ fans won’t only have to deal with no Samantha Jones, but Mr. Big will also be absent from the upcoming HBO Max reboot.
Chris North will not be reprising his role.
David Eigenberg, who played Miranda Hobbes’s love interest, Steve Brady, won’t be returning either.
via Page Six:
Big, of course, was the love interest to Sarah Jessica Parker’s character Carrie Bradshaw over the course of the hit show’s six seasons, and the pair were married —after one dashed wedding attempt — in the first movie, from 2008.
In 2010’s sequel, the pair struggled with married life, but by the end, decide to try and make their marriage work.
But it looks like he’ll be out of her life once more when the new HBO Max series picks up her story.
In December, Page Six exclusively reported that a reboot of the hit franchise was in the works as limited series on HBO Max. In January, Parker confirmed there would be a ten-episode revival called “And Just Like That.”
As Page Six previously reported, Kim Cattrall, who portrayed libidinous PR maven Samantha Jones, is also not returning after years of soured relations with Parker.
HBO Max did not respond for comment.
We’re still looking forward to the reboot.
