More bad news for “Sex and the City” alum Chris Noth.

The actor has been dropped from the CBS series “The Equalizer” following allegations he sexually assaulted several women.

Noth, 67, portrayed William Bishop on the drama, alongside star Queen Latifah.

The beleaguered actor’s publicist has not responded to The Post’s request for comment.

“Chris Noth will no longer film additional episodes of ‘The Equalizer,’ effective immediately,” Universal Television and CBS said in a statement.

The actor will still be seen in one upcoming episode of the series. The show is on hiatus and seven episodes of its second season have already aired, according to Deadline.

The actor was also recently dropped from his agency, A3 Artists.

Three women have since come forward with allegations that Noth assaulted them. Following the claims, the “And Just Like That” star had his ad he filmed for Peloton removed.

The Hollywood Reporter reported last week that two women came to the to tell their stories regarding Noth’s actions. One attack occurred in 2004 where he was allegedly so rough with the victim that he made her bleed and left her needing hospital treatment. The other woman said she was left “totally violated” by the star in 2015.

Another woman, under the pseudonym “Ava,” told the Daily Beast that he allegedly forced himself on her in the back office of a Midtown restaurant in 2010. She was working as a waitress at the time and was 18-years-old.

“At first, it felt as though I was the only person in the universe who could hear me saying no,” she told the outlet. Ava explained she met Noth at his table and he pulled her onto his lap, touching and groping her. She added that once her shift was done, Noth wanted to pay her in the restaurant office and he allegedly began kissing her and pushed her against a desk. “My limbs hurt in the morning,” she recalled.

A representative for Noth previously denied Ava’s claims as “a complete fabrication.” The rep told The Post, “The alleged accounts detailed throughout read like a piece of bad fiction. Chris has no knowledge of who this individual is and, as stated yesterday, has and would never cross that line.”

Actress Zoe Lister-Jones also came out with her own story of sexual misconduct against the “Perfect Man” star. She worked with him on the show, “Law & Order: Criminal Intent” in 2005.

She wrote in an Instagram post that she worked at one of the clubs that Noth owned in New York in her twenties. She recalled how he would be inappropriate with a female coworker. The same year she worked at the club, she guest starred in the crime series and alleged that he was drunk.

“He was drunk on set. During my interrogation scene he had a 22 oz. of beer under the table that he would drink in between takes. In one take he got close to me, sniffed my neck, and whispered, ‘You smell good.’ I didn’t say anything. My friend at the club never said anything. It’s so rare that we do,” Lister-Jones wrote on social media.
