A Sex And The City Follow Up Series Is On The Way
Break out the Magnolia cupcakes, pop the champers, and slip into something way more expensive, because a follow up to Sex and the City is coming to television.
Paramount have bought the rights to Candice Bushnell's upcoming book Is There Still Sex in the City? with plans to develop it as a television series. Bushnell will write the first episode and work as executive producer of the show.
While there is no news of any of the original cast signing on yet, the show will examine the dating lives of women over 50 - which is a good sign!
“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,” said Bushnell.
“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.”
To be honest, getting the four main actresses to sign onto this project won't be an easy sell. Kim Cattrall recently ignited a rather one-sided fued with Sarah Jessica Parker, throwing shade at the rest of the cast along the way, while Cynthia Nixon recently ran for governor of New York.
Hey, maybe it'll be a Charlotte-heavy series, which suits us just fine.
