Big is back.

Warner Media

It's official: Mr. Big will be back for a new HBO Max series returning to the world of Sex and the City. The reboot/sequel is called And Just Like That..., and Chris Noth will once again play Carrie's husband alongside the other original stars. 

Also reprising their roles in And Just Like That... will be Sarah Jessica Parker as Carrie Bradshaw, Cynthia Nixon as Miranda Hobbes and Kristin Davis as Charlotte York Goldenblatt. Samantha Jones, originally played by Kim Cattrall, hasn't been cast to return.

"How could we ever do a new chapter of the 'Sex And The City' story without our Mr. Big?" Michael Patrick King, executive producer, said in a statement from WarnerMedia Wednesday.
