“Chris Noth will no longer film additional episodes of The Equalizer, effective immediately,” CBS and Universal Television, the show’s production company, announced in a brief statement to CNN on Monday.
In “The Equalizer,” which stars Queen Latifah, Noth, 67, portrays former CIA director William Bishop. He will be seen in one upcoming episode of the series that has already been filmed, as well as future repeats of episodes that have already aired.
CNN has contacted Noth’s representative for comment.
In the debut episode of HBO Max series “And Just Like That…,” a spinoff 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 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 painful experiences. We know it must be a very difficult thing to do and we commend them for it.”
