Sarah Jessica Parker Confirms SEX AND THE CITY 3 Is Not Happening
Speaking with Extra last night at a New York City Ballet Gala, Sarah Jessica Parker confirmed that a third installment of SEX AND THE CITY will not be happening "It's over. We're not doing it," shared the actress who 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."
The last installment of the film franchise hit movie theaters in 2010.
The romantic comedy TV series was 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. Set and filmed in New York City and based on the 1997 book of the same name by Candace Bushnell, the show follows 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. The deliberate omission of the better part of the early lives of the four women was the writers' way of exploring social life - from sex to relationships - through each of their four very different, individual perspectives.
