Mr. Big will be played by Chris Noth. The remake will be titled And Just Like That: here's all the news and previews.
The remake of Sex and the City begins to take shape: news about the plot and the cast begin to spread. And speaking of new characters and great returns, there is some great news for fans of the series. In fact, Mr. Big will return and will be played by Chris Noth once again.
This news has aroused the enthusiasm of the public, fond of the actor and his historical interpretation in the mother series. The remake will be titled And Just Like That... and will arrive on HBO Max, the broadcaster that recently produced the Friends reunion, which in Italy was broadcast by Sky. Sex and the City is one of the most popular series of the nineties and the news of its return has generated a general enthusiasm. But unlike Friends, it will not be a show, but a real mini-series set many years after the original episodes. Little is still known about it: surely we will find some of the historical protagonists, including Sarah Jessica Parker in the role of Carrie.
Sex and the City: the return of Mr. Big
Mr. Big is the great love of Carrie, is a fascinating man, who conquers and leads the protagonist to the altar. The public therefore imagines them still together, perhaps after years of marriage. In fact, it is not yet known what will be the role of the couple in the sequel. In fact, And Just Like That... will tell the life of the characters about 30 years after the mother series.
In the new plot they are now fifty years old and the couple could even be separated. Surely, the news about the presence of Mr. Big gives huge hope to the fans and the two characters will live intense experiences and emotions in the sequel as well.
It only remains to understand in which relationships we will find again Carrie and her husband Mr. Big. Will they still be together or will we find them changed and separated?
Sex and the City: what we know about the remake
In addition to Carrie, we will also find Charlotte (Kristin Davis) and Miranda (Cynthia Nixon) while there will be a big absentee, Samantha (Kim Cattrall). Of course, the background of the events of the series will once again be New York, which played a crucial role in the success of the title of the nineties.
The friends in their thirties, in the mother series, moved in the American metropolis between drinks, shopping, laughter and confidences. And probably the audience will find them again so, just a little more mature. In addition, it is very likely that in the series there will be references to the pandemic, so as to make it as current and realistic as possible.
Michael Patrick King, the executive producer, was very pleased with the return of Mr. Big: "I'm thrilled to work with Chris again in And Just Like That... . How could we have ever done a new chapter in the Sex and the City story without our Mr. Big?"
In addition to him, we'll also be reuniting with another man important to Carrie, Aidan played by John Corbett. Among the new entries in the cast will also be Sara Ramirez as Che Diez, a queer character who hosts a podcast in which Carrie intervenes as a guest. In short, the remake of Sex and the City will recall the past without disappointing fans, but at the same time it will be a current series and in step with the times.
