'Sex And The City' Is Getting A Follow-Up TV Series
While SATC 3 is never going to happen because of *that* feud between cast members Sarah Jessica Parker and Kim Cattrall, at least you'll still be able to feed your on-going obsession with the iconic show.
Sex and the City author Candice Bushnell has new novel out in August titled, Is There Still Sex in the City?, and it has been picked up by Paramount Television and Anonymous Content.
Bushnell will executive produce and write the script for the TV show, and it will follow the lives of women living in NYC.
Just like SATC, the new series will see the women navigate their way through friendships and romantic relationships, with the major difference being that they will be in their 50s and 60s.
"The original Sex and the City book and series served as a groundbreaking touchstone for an entire generation of women, myself included," Nicole Clemens, president of Paramount TV, told Deadline. "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!'"
Meanwhile Candace said she was "thrilled to be reflecting the rich, complexity" of these women.

In a statement, she said: "It didn't used to be this way. At one time, 50-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. 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 50 and 60-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."
Running from 1998 to 2004 on HBO, the original series starred Sarah Jessica Parker as Carrie Bradshaw, Cynthia Nixon as Miranda Hobbes, Kim Cattrall as Samantha Jones and Kristin Davis as Charlotte York Goldenblatt.
The four actors also reprised their roles in the 2008 and 2010 movies.
And the 2013 to 2014 prequel, The Carrie Diaries, saw Annasophie Robb play the shoe-obsessed writer.
Filming hasn't yet commenced for the new series, and it doesn't look like any of the original cast will be making an appearance.
We can't wait to see how this one turns out.
