Carrie Bradshaw will be delighted at the news that Mr. Big aka Chris Noth has now completed a deal that will see the actor reprise his role in the upcoming ‘Sex and the City’ revival.
Titled ‘And Just Like That’ the next chapter will see the original series stars Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis reuniting on screen and taking the roles of producers as the ladies navigate love and friendship in their fifties. Kim Cattrall will not be returning, unless you’ve all be hiding under a rock, this came as no surprise.
“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?” exec producer Michael Patrick King said.

The original series ran between 1998 and 2004 and went on to spawn 2 feature films in 2008 and 2010. The series has won several accolades, including seven of its 54 Emmy Award nominations, eight of its 24 Golden Globe Award nominations, and three of its 11 Screen Actors Guild Award nominations.
