The iconic character dated Bradshaw on-and-off for show’s six seasons and the two eventually married in the first And The movie. The second movie — where fans last saw the beloved character — concludes with the couple still happily together and living in New York City.

Noth won’t be the only major players from the new series, titled And Just Like That. David Eigenberg, who played Miranda Hobbes’s love interest, Steve Brady, won’t be coming back either.

It was previously announced that Kim Cattrall — who played sex-positive PR hotshot Samantha Jones — will also not be returning, 

As OK! reported earlier, Max’s chief content officer Casey Bloys tried to explain how the series plans to tackle Samantha’s absence.

“They’re not trying to say that these characters are reliving their 30s,” she emphasizes to TVLine. “It is very much a story about women in their 50s, and they are dealing with things that people deal with in their 50s.” 

To that end, “just as in real life, people come into your life, people leave,” she continues. “Friendships fade, and new friendships start. So I think it is all very indicative of the real stages, the actual stages of life… They’re trying to tell an honest story about being a woman in her 50s in New York. So it should all feel somewhat organic, and the friends that you have when you’re 30, you may not have when you’re 50.”

It’s no secret that despite playing BFFs on the show, Cattrall and Parker famously feuded for years off-camera. The 64-year-old has also been extremely vocal in the fact that her Sex and the City days are totally behind her.

“Everything is on Google, so I encourage you to Google it, about anything that I’ve said,” Cattrall told the Los Angeles Times earlier this year in reference to her rift with co-star. “I feel that that was then, and when I look at what’s going on around me, I just don’t have any regrets.”

The controversy between the two Emmy-winning actresses has played out in the tabloids for more than a decade, from early rumors of salary disputes to allegations of on-set cliquishness. The famous feud got publicly nasty in 2018, when Parker sent condolences to Cattrall after the death of her brother. 

Instead of accepting her words, her former co-star shot back, “Your continuous reaching out is a painful reminder of how cruel you really were then and now,” adding: “Let me make this VERY clear. (If I haven’t already) You are not my family. You are not my friend.”

Sex and the City originally ran for six seasons on HBO from 1998-2004. The show had two feature films in 2008 and 2010, but the third movie never saw the light of day, rumored to be because Cattrall was holding out.

Production of And Just Like That will begin filming in New York in the spring. 

Page Six originally reported that Noth and Eigenberg would not be returning.
