The following article contains discussion of sexual assault allegations that some readers may find upsetting.

Sex and the City actor Chris Noth has exited The Equalizer as William Bishop after being dropped from the series in December.

Noth's final episode in the crime drama aired in the US last Sunday (January 2), with his ex-CIA director rushing to the Pentagon to save hacker Harry Keshegian, who faced life imprisonment for breaching confidential files.

It's currently unspecified how Bishop leaves, but after reconnecting with his secret son earlier in season 2, there's options for the writers to explore.

Noth was recently accused by three women of sexual assault, with incidents allegedly taking place in New York City seven years ago and Los Angeles back in 2004.

He has since denied all allegations, citing consensual circumstances in each case.

"The accusations against me made by individuals I met years, even decades, ago are categorically false. These stories could've been from 30 years ago or 30 days ago – no always means no – that is a line I did not cross," his statement read.

"The encounters were consensual. It's difficult not to question the timing of these stories coming out. I don't know for certain why they are surfacing now, but I do know this: I did not assault these women."
