Last month, the reboot of "Sex and the City," titled "And Just Like That...," was officially announced by former members of the cast.

Since then, details about the new series have been emerging, including who will and won't be returning to the cast.

Here's every actor who won't be appearing in the "Sex and the City" reboot - and those who will.

Sarah Jessica Parker will be returning as writer and designer shoe enthusiast Carrie Bradshaw.

On January 10, former "Sex and the City" star Sarah Jessica Parker, along with other cast members, posted a teaser trailer for the next installment in the series on Instagram.

Immediately, longtime fans were quick to share their excitement for the new installment, with Parker's post alone receiving over 1 million likes in less than 24 hours.

"We have some new stories to tell," Parker wrote on Instagram. "We are excited."

Cynthia Nixon will be reprising her role as corporate lawyer Miranda Hobbes.

Nixon, who received a Golden Globe nomination for best supporting actress in Netflix's "Ratched," will be returning to the reboot, she announced on social media.

"Anything is possible. This is New York," she captioned a tweet of the trailer for "Just Like That..."

In addition to her acting roles, Nixon has also been active in politics. A member of the New York chapter of the Democratic Socialists of America, Nixon ran against Governor Andrew Cuomo in New York's Democratic primary election in 2018. Though she lost the primary, she has remained a staunch figure in progressive politics.

Kristin Davis will be returning to the role of Charlotte York-Goldenblatt.

Davis played the role of New York gallerist Charlotte York-Goldenblatt in all six seasons of the show and in the two feature films.

Not much is known about her character's arc in the reboot. However, it can likely be assumed that her story will pick up where the final movie left off as she raises her two daughters, Lily and Rose, with her husband Harry Goldenblatt.

Kim Cattrall, who played sex-positive publicist Samantha Jones, will not be returning to the new limited series.

In response to two comments on her Instagram post about whether Cattrall would be returning to the next chapter, and whether the two disliked each other, Sarah Jessica Parker said, "No. I don't dislike her. I've never said that. Never would. Samantha isn't a part of this story. But she will always be a part of us. No matter where we are or what we do."

In an interview with TVLine, HBO Max's chief content officer, Casey Bloys, explained how the show would address Cattrall's absence.

"Just as in real life, people come into your life, people leave," Bloys said. "Friendships fade, and new friendships start. So I think it is all very indicative of the real stages, the actual stages of life."

Chris Noth, who played Carrie Bradshaw's love interest Mr. Big, will reportedly not be returning. However, he's implied those reports may not be true.

In February, Page Six reported that Chris Noth will not be reprising his role of John James "Mr. Big" Preston. Noth played the role of Carrie's emotionally unavailable love interest in all six seasons of the original show and in both of the feature films.

When the second film ended, Sarah Jessica Parker's character, Carrie Bradshaw, and Mr. Big were married. However, when the third film was scrapped, rumors circulated that the writers had intended to kill Mr. Big off in the never-released script. It's unclear how the character will be written off in the new series — or if he will at all.

Following the Page Six report, he responded to an Instagram comment asking, "Dear Mr [Noth] ... why for heaven's sake are you not playing my beloved Mr Big?? My heart is [broken]..."

According to Us Weekly, the 66-year-old actor responded, "Everything changes ... including announcements in the rags." He responded to another comment, saying, "well if page six says it... it must be true" with a winking emoticon.

In a further twist, the hosts of a "Sex and the City" podcast, the Bradshaw Boys, shared an image of Noth's comments, and the post was liked by Kristin Davis, who plays Charlotte.

It's also unclear whether David Eigenberg, who played Miranda Hobbes' love interest Steve Brady, is returning.

Citing a source, Page Six reported that Eigenberg wouldn't be returning to play Steve Brady, Miranda's bartender boyfriend-turned-husband with whom she had a child.

However, a rep told the publication that he is currently in negotiations to appear in the limited series.

Willie Garson, who played Stanford Blatch, seemingly confirmed his return to the series on social media.

In January, the actor posted a photo to Instagram with a headline announcing "And Just Like That..." Kristin Davis commented on the post, saying, "Of course Stanford will be back !!"

Lynn Cohen, who played Miranda's housekeeper Magda in both the show and the two movies, passed away in February 2020.

Lynn Cohen was a veteran actor best known for her role as Magda, Miranda's stern but affectionate housekeeper and nanny, in "Sex and the City," as well as roles in "Damages," "Nurse Jackie," "The Affair," "Law & Order," and "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire."

Cohen passed away at the age of 86 on February 15, 2020. Following the announcement of her death, messages poured in from her former "SATC" cast members.

"Many people knew & loved Lynn Cohen as Miranda's stalwart Polish nanny Magda. To me she was that & so much more — an involved citizen, a true friend & a great actress in so many different roles," Cynthia Nixon tweeted. "I will miss her so much."

Sarah Jessica Parker captioned a photo of the late actress on Instagram, "Beautiful Lynn Cohen. Miranda's dear and necessary Magda. Our dear SATC colleague. Talent, grace, inspiration. RIP."
