The Sex and The City reboot isn't even out yet and already it's shrouded in drama. From the news that Kim Cattrall's Samantha won't feature in the upcoming remake, to the fact that the coronavirus pandemic will, the limited series has certainly ruffled a few feathers. Well, it doesn't look like that's stopping anytime soon, with the news that Chris Noth's character Mr Big will not be featuring in the remake.
According to a report from Page Six Chris Noth's Mr Big will not be part of Carrie Bradshaw's life in the upcoming reboot, Just Like That, but we don't yet know how he'll be written out of the show after playing such a central part in the show's six seasons and both subsequent films.
Along with Mr Big's big absence, it's also reported that David Eigenberg, who played Steve Brady, Miranda's love interest and later her husband in the show and films, will also not be reprising his role. However, Page Six says it has also been told that Eigenberg is still in negotiations to return to the role.
Understandably, fans were not too pleased to hear the news about Mr Big, with many of them taking to social media to express their disappointment.
So we won't have Samantha, Mr. Big AND Steve? Arguably the three best characters of the show. You can keep it, I don't want this reboot if it's not done right. https://t.co/Qd49Bh1RL6

Hmm, I’m dubious about a #SATC reboot without Mr Big and possibly without Steve. I can buy that Samantha would have moved/drifted away. But that Carrie would ever shut up about Big/stop running into him at bars/on boats/at furniture shows? No way. #SexAndTheCity #AndJustLikeThat

We've got a long way to go before we even get a release date for Just Like That. What other dramas can we expect?!
