Bridget Moynahan, who played Mr. Big’s ex-wife in the original Sex and the City series, was spotted on the set of the upcoming reboot early this week.
Set photos from the Sex and the City reboot reveal Bridget Moynahan’s return as Mr. Big’s ex-wife, Natasha. Based on Candace Bushnell’s bestselling novel, Sex and the City originally premiered on HBO in 1998 and ran for six seasons. Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall, Kristin Davis, and Cynthia Nixon starred in lead roles as Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte, and Miranda. The series followed the lives of these best friends in their mid-30s as they juggled careers, romance, and friendship in New York City. The series’ bold glamor and refreshing wit made it a global success, spawning two feature films in 2008 and 2010.
And Just Like That… will serve as a continuation of the girls’ story and takes place a decade after the last movie. All original lead stars will be returning except for Cattrall, who played the sexy publicist Samantha Jones. The 10-episode limited series is currently in production and will be streamed on HBO Max. Other original cast members who will reprise their roles include Willie Garson as Carrie’s best friend, Evan Handler as Charlotte’s husband Harry, and David Eigenberg as Miranda’s husband Steve. Chris Noth, who played Carrie’s Mr. Big in the original series and movies, is also part of the revival.
While much of the details surrounding And Just Like That… are being kept under wraps, leaked set photos point to interesting clues about its plot. On Monday, actress Bridget Moynahan was spotted filming for the Sex and the City reboot, EW confirms. Moynahan had a recurring role in the original HBO series as Natasha, Mr. Big’s sophisticated young wife during the second and third seasons. Footage shared by fan Gregory Littley shows the 50-year-old actress smiling as she walked around New York’s SoHo neighborhood in between takes.
Moynahan’s presence on the set of And Just Like That is enough to cause a stir among viewers. For one, HBO has not officially announced the actress’ involvement in the upcoming series. Secondly, Carrie had a conflicted relationship with Natasha during Sex and the City‘s original run. It can be remembered that Mr. Big and Natasha were still married when he and Carrie got into an ill-fated romance back in season 3. Natasha discovered their affair and in a dramatic confrontation, tumbled down the stairs and chipped her tooth. Carrie later apologized to Natasha, who icily rejected her sincere gesture.
Things are definitely starting to get exciting for the long-awaited Sex and the City sequel. While it’s unclear how Moynahan’s entry to the reboot will play out, it is loaded with intriguing possibilities. Has Natasha finally mended things with Carrie after so many years, or is she out to get justice for her tragic dental situation? Is everything okay with Carrie and Big’s marriage? The last time viewers saw the two, they were living their best lives as husband and wife. It’s been more than 10 years, and the power couple could have hit a few roadblocks in their marriage along the way. Fans may have to wait a few more months, but everything will be revealed once And Just Like That… premieres on HBO Max.
