Two-time Golden Globe nominee and SAG Award-nominated actor Chris Noth will reprise the role of “Mr. Big” in the new chapter of the groundbreaking HBO series Sex and the City series, And Just Like That…

This Max Original follows “Carrie” (Sarah Jessica Parker), “Miranda” (Cynthia Nixon), and “Charlotte” (Kristin Davis) as they navigate the journey from the complicated reality of life and friendship in their 30s to the even more complicated reality of life and friendship in their 50s.

The ten-episode, half-hour series is scheduled to begin production in New York this summer.  

 “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?,” shared Michael Patrick King, Executive Producer.

Noth rose to prominence as “Detective Mike Logan” on the original Law and Order, where he spent five seasons before going on to set hearts aflutter as the iconic “Mr. Big” on HBO’s groundbreaking series.

Noth garnered his first Golden Globe nomination for Best Actor in a Comedy playing the unattainable bachelor who gradually evolves into the love of Carrie Bradshaw’s life.

Meanwhile, Mr. Big became a central point for the Carrie character and the series as a whole, with their tumultuous storyline launching two blockbuster movies Sex and the City and Sex and the City 2, in which he also starred.

Next came a critically lauded turn as the flawed and powerful “Peter Florrick” opposite Juliana Margolis on the CBS hit drama The Good Wife. Noth’s complex performance earned him a second Golden Globe nod – this one for Best Actor in a Drama, as well as two SAG nominations for Best Ensemble.

He recently starred opposite Sam Worthington and Paul Bettany in Discovery’s Manhunt: Unabomber and the final season of the FX series Tyrant. Currently, Noth can be seen on the popular CBS drama Equalizer opposite Queen Latifah.
