It sounds like many of the old flames who appeared on "Sex and the City" over the years might not be returning for the show's HBO Max reboot, "And Just Like That..."

Actor Jason Lewis, who played Smith Jerrod, Samantha's love interest on the comedy-drama TV series, told the Daily Front Row he will not be a part of the reboot.

"I have not, but I would be the last to know!" said Lewis. "As much as I appreciate the flattery, the conversation is about the girls."

The news might not come as a big surprise to fans, as it was previously reported that Kim Cattrall also won't be reprising her role of Samantha. Lewis went on to say that he doesn't think his character — a fashion model turned action star — and Samantha reconciled after breaking up in the 2008 film.

"I think that they moved away from each other," he explained, adding that he thinks Smith would've left acting for a job in "production."

It was previously reported that actors Chris Noth (who plays Carrie's husband, Mr. Big) and David Eigenberg (who plays Miranda's husband, Steve) also won't be coming back for the revival. Nevertheless, Vanity Fair noted Noth has suggested on social media that he could return and that Eigenberg told E! News he was also contacted about the show and is "pretty sure" he will be involved.

Last week, it was reported that John Corbett would be joining "And Just Like That...," reprising the role of Aidan, Carrie's ex-fiancé.

"I'm going to do the show. I think I might be in quite a few [episodes]," he told Page Six, adding that the news is "very exciting."

In other "SATC" revival news, it was recently reported that the producers are adding a number of new roles to fill out the social circle of Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker), Miranda (Cynthia Nixon), and Charlotte (Kristin Davis), including three women of color. Click here to read more about that.
