“Sex And The City” Follow-Up Series In The Works

“Sex And the City” Follow-Up Series Headed to Paramount TV

Are Carrie Bradshaw and her girls back for another adventure? Not exactly – but the iconic series is reportedly getting a follow-up. Paramount Television and Anonymous Content have acquired the rights to Candace Bushnell‘s upcoming book, “Is There Still Sex in the City?” Candace wrote the original book that spawned the Emmy Award-winning HBO series, its movies, and the spinoff “The Carrie Diaries.”

Nicole Clemens, President of Paramount Television commented on the exciting new series:

“The original Sex and the City book and series served as a groundbreaking touchstone for an entire generation of women, myself included. We’re thrilled to be able to continue that conversation from the underrepresented point of view of women in their 50s and answer the question with, ‘Yes! There is more sex in the city!’”

Candace Bushnell will write the pilot script for “Is There Still Sex in the City?” based on her latest book, and executive produce the project about the highs and lows of dating after the age of 50. She said this about the plight of the single middle-aged woman:

“It didn’t used to be this way. At one time, fifty something meant the beginning of retirement—working less, spending more time on your hobbies, with your friends, who like you were sliding into a more leisurely lifestyle.”

She continued:

“In short, retirement age folks weren’t meant to do much of anything but get older and a bit heavier. They weren’t expected to exercise, start new business ventures, move to a different state, have casual sex with strangers, and start all over again. But this is exactly what the lives of a lot of fifty- and sixty something women look like today and I’m thrilled to be reflecting the rich, complexity of their reality on the page and now on the screen.”

Candace Bushnell’s book, “Is There Still Sex in the City?” is slated to be released by Grove Press on August 6, 2019.
