“Chris Noth will no longer be filming additional episodes of The Equalizer, effective now,” CBS and Universal Television, the show’s production company, announced Monday in a brief statement to CNN.
In “The Equalizer,” which stars Queen Latifah, Noth, 67, portrays former CIA Director William Bishop. He will be seen in a future episode of the series which has already been filmed, as well as in future rehearsals of previously aired episodes.
CNN has reached out to Noth’s rep for comment.
In the first episode of the HBO Max series “And Just Like That …”, a spin-off of “Sex and the City”, Noth’s character suffered a heart attack and died. (CNN and HBO share parent company WarnerMedia.)
On Monday night, “And Just Like That” stars and executive producers Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis released a statement on 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 painful experiences. We know this must be a very difficult thing to do and we applaud them for it.”
