There Will be No “Sex and the City 3”
If you were holding your breath in anticipation for another “Sex And The City” movie, you’re out of luck. Sarah Jessica Parker, the star of both the series and movies, recently addressed rumors of a third “Sex and the City” movie. Parker confirmed that the studio shelved the project. Revealing,
It’s over…We’re not doing it.
She went on to explain,
I’m disappointed. We had this beautiful, funny, heartbreaking, joyful, very relatable script and story. It’s not just disappointing that we don’t get to tell the story and have that experience, but more so for that audience that has been so vocal in wanting another movie.
According to reports, co-star Kim Cattrall demanded that producers back her other film projects, which made things even more difficult for another film.
Sex and the City was a romantic comedy television series created by Darren Star and produced by HBO. Broadcast from 1998 until 2004, the original run of the show had a total of 94 episodes. Throughout its six-year run, the show received contributions from various producers, writers, and directors, perhaps most significantly from Michael Patrick King.
Set and filmed in New York City and based on the 1997 book of the same name by Candace Bushnell, the show followed the lives of a group of four women—three in their mid-thirties and one in her forties—who, despite their different natures and ever-changing sex lives, remain inseparable and confide in each other. Starring Sarah Jessica Parker (as Carrie Bradshaw), Kim Cattrall (as Samantha Jones), Kristin Davis (as Charlotte York), and Cynthia Nixon (as Miranda Hobbes), the quirky series had multiple continuing storylines that tackled relevant and modern social issues such as sexuality, safe sex, promiscuity, and femininity, while exploring the difference between friendships and romantic relationships.
It spawned two feature films, Sex and the City (2008) and its sequel Sex and the City 2 (2010), and a prequel series by The CW, The Carrie Diaries.
Are you sad that a third “Sex And The City” has been shelved?
