“I’m thrilled to be working with Chris again on And Just Like That…” executive producer Michael Patrick King said in a statement. “How could we ever do a new chapter of the Sex And The City story without our Mr. Big?”

Noth played Carrie Bradshaw’s main love interest, Mr. Big, throughout the series. From the second sequel to the film, the couple were still married.

Earlier this week, DailyMail.com revealed that in addition to Big, John Corbett will reprise his role of Aiden (the one who got away for Carrie) and that Cynthia Nixon’s character Miranda will be joined by her on-screen husband Steve – played by David Eigenberg.

“Viewers will definitely see Big, Aiden and Steve,” said a senior production source.

“I’m thrilled to be working with Chris again on And Just Like That …,” executive producer Michael Patrick King said in a statement. “How can we ever do a new chapter of the Sex And The City story without our Mr. Big?”

The source also revealed that famed costume designer Patricia Field – responsible for Sarah Jessica Parker’s iconic wardrobe – will not be returning to the reboot.

“Patricia Field isn’t coming back – she’s focusing on Emily in Paris,” the source said. “This is a first for the show as the clothes for the sixth season and two movies are all styled by Patricia.”

The reboot follows three of the original stars, Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker), Miranda (Cynthia Nixon) and Charlotte (Kristin Davis) as they navigate life in the Big Apple in their 50s.

According to a production source, Samantha Jones will be written from the Sex and the City reboot in the same way that her true friendship with Sarah Jessica Parker ended.

Casey Bloys, HBO Max’s chief content officer, told TVLine about the new changes, ”[EP Sarah Jessica Parker and King] try to tell an honest story about being a woman in your 50s in New York. ‘

“So it should all feel a bit organic, and the friends you have when you’re 30 you might not have when you’re 50.”

Bloys also explained Cattrall’s absence, although it’s clear she won’t be ‘killed’ in the new series.
