Still so heartbreaking.

After the tragic death of Sex And The City star Willie Garson earlier this year, fans of the series were left devastated, particularly with a spin off series only around the corner.

The 57 year old passed away from pancreatic cancer back in September ahead of And Just Like That airing, which the actor is set to star in.

While he was a huge part of the original series, fans are now worried about how Stanford is set to be portrayed in the upcoming series after his death was revealed.

Producer of the original and upcoming series Michael Patrick King has revealed that nobody is set to die in the new series, despite Willie passing away in real life.

Revealing to the New York Times, Michael spoke about the rumours running wild that the show would replicate Willie’s real death.

Michael said that the reboot wouldn’t incorporate Willie’s passing as “it wasn’t charming. And I knew that the audience would know.”

While Willie will make an appearance in the new series, he, unfortunately, won’t be in the full show as he wasn’t able to film all the scenes he was set to appear in.

“We had a whole journey that we weren’t able to do. But what he did is fantastic,” he recently told The Hollywood Reporter.

With Michael revealing that nobody in the show will die, the rumours of Mr Big being killed off have been pushed aside.

Rumours first started that somebody would die in the show as the cast was pictured filming funeral scenes, with a lot of people claiming it would be Samantha as she won’t be appearing in the reboot.

After sources debunked the Samantha theory, others said Mr Big would die from a heart attack, but it seems he’s not going anywhere any time soon.
