Despite the fact that plans for a third film fell through, Sex and the City might still come back. Variety reports that Paramount Television has acquired the rights to Is There Still Sex in the City? Candace Bushnell’s new follow-up to SATC.
The new tome, set on the Upper East Side, explores life and dating for women over 50. Bushnell is set to write the pilot script, and will also be an executive producer on the project. But it is yet unclear if it will be a continuation of the original TV show. If they do decide to bring back the old gang, count Kim Cattrall — who played Samantha Jones — out. She recently refused to return to the movie series, so it’s unlikely she’ll want to join the new show.
