"Sex and the City" actor David Eigenberg shared his opinion on whether he would join the show's revival this year during an interview with Us Weekly.


While speaking to Us Weekly and promoting his show "Chicago Fire," David Eigenberg discussed his opinion and feelings on whether he would join the cast of "Sex and the City" for its revival.

Sarah Jessica Parker teased about a revival on social media. Fans were excited to see what the characters have been up to. However, many are also wondering who will return.

Eigenberg played Steve Brady, who was Cynthia Nixon's character Miranda's love interest. He admitted that working with Nixon was a dream, so that would be a bonus if he were brought back for the revival.

He shared that it was interesting that they were bringing back the show, and he really enjoyed it. However, he revealed that playing Steve would not be the same without his TV mom, Anne Meara:

“It’s a sad thing to go back because that character, you know, [the] lineage is gone, and Anne as a human being wouldn’t be there."


Meara played Mary Brady, Steve's mother, on the show. The actress died six years ago in May 2015, after she suffered multiple strokes. Eigenberg opened up and said it was sad as he had lost a dear friend.

He did add that if writers can work around her absence, then perhaps there is a chance for his character to join the cast. There has been no official word if Eigenberg will portray Steve in the upcoming series, "Just Like That."

Samantha is not the only character who will not be joining the cast for the HBO revival series.


However, Parker, Nixon, and Kristin Davis are all set to reprise their roles as the glamourous friends in New York. Kim Cattrall, who played Samatha, will not be returning to the show.

HBO Max chief content officer Casey Bloys gave a possible explanation of how writers and producers will angle the revival to explain Cattrall's absence from the show. Bloys shared:

"They’re not trying to redo Sex and the City. They’re not trying to say that these characters are reliving their 30s. It is very much a story about women in their 50s."


She added that the revival would deal with problems people in their 50s face, including starting new friendships and having people leave their lives. Bloys said the production is trying to tell an honest story of women in their 50s.

Samantha is not the only character who will not be joining the cast for the HBO revival series. Chris Noth, who played Mr. Big, Carrie Bradshaw's boyfriend and husband, will not be joining the cast.


Noth has been busy with his own projects, including the TV series "The Equalizer," alongside Queen Latifah and other movie projects such as "Someday Sometime" and "Brooklyn All American," which are both in preproduction.

The show must and will show go on without Samantha, Steve, or Mr. Big. Variety reported that Parker, Nixon, and Davis would be paid $ 1 million per episode as they are also executive producers.
