Does Mr Big die in And Just Like That?
Sad news for fans of Mr Big - he does indeed die in the reboot.
At the start of the series, the character - played by Chris Noth - is very much alive and still happily married to Carrie.
The end of episode one sees him do an exercise session with his instructor Allegra, and then texting Carrie asking about evening plans.
Mr Big is then seen experiencing a tightness in his chest, and Carrie comes home to find he's died of a heart attack.
The end of the episode sees Carrie saying in her true style: "and just like that, Mr. Big was dead."
Episode two shows Big being carried outside in a body bag, and Carrie is then seen preparing for his funeral.
Chris Noth previously revealed that he wasn't initially keen on returning for the reboot, but was eventually persuaded by Michael Patrick King.
He told the Guardian: "It was a long conversation, it continued through the pandemic and he took in a lot of my ideas and we came up with a way for me to work into it."
