CBS and Universal Television, the show’s production company, announced in a brief statement to CNN Monday, “Chris Noth will not film additional episodes of The Equalizer, and they will become effective immediately.”
In “The Equalizer,” starring Queen Latifah, Noth, 67, portrays former CIA Director William Bishop. He will appear in one of the upcoming episodes of the already filmed series, as well as future iterations of episodes that have already aired.
CNN has contacted a representative of Noth for comment.
In the first episode of the HBO Max series “And Just Like That…”, part of the series Sex and the City, the character Noth suffered a heart attack and died. (CNN and HBO share in parent company WarnerMedia.)
On Monday night, “And Just Like That” stars and executive producers Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon and Kristen Davis released a statement via social media addressing the allegations for the first time.
“We are deeply saddened to hear the allegations against Chris Noth. We support the women who have come forward and shared their traumatic experiences. We know it must be a very difficult thing and we applaud them for that.”
