While there are so many different revivals that have been done as of late, a Sex and the City 3 is not going to be one of them, which is a real bummer because this show (in many ways) is more relevant today then it was when it aired. Just with the idea of technology playing a huge part in the modern world of dating with websites like Tinder and other online landmines, there are a lot of ways to breathe new life into this show and tackle subjects we haven’t already seen.
For years — almost ever since the disappointing second feature film based on the HBO show — there’s been some discussion here and there about bringing the show back. However, at the same time there has never been any confirmation that it’s going to happen. The most that has ever been said is that there is a modest amount of interest here and there and that’s about it.
The talk of there being another movie started to surface again earlier this week thanks to a faulty tabloid report from the Daily Mail that Kim Cattrall was holding things up because of her “demands,” which was a claim that she rebuked in a post on her Twitter account.
Granted, this “rebuke” was basically her saying that she didn’t want to do another movie. That’s not so much of a demand as it is a statement.
To add to this, series star Sarah Jessica Parker made it clear to Extra in a new interview that the dream seems to be done, which is especially sad since it does seem like there was actually a good idea that was starting to come together:
“It’s over… we’re not doing it … 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.”
Our opinion remains unchanged
CarterMatt is a television news and analysis site; therefore, covering movies is not something we do and we of course have a little bias towards wanting more TV shows. Even with that Sex and the City worked better as television programming, something where there was a different story to check out every week and there were threads that could carry over from one episode to the next over the course of a season. If we ever had a chance to see the property come back, we’d prefer a six-to-eight episode revival as opposed to something that was just another movie. Parker clearly has a great relationship with HBO still given that she’s got Divorce going on over there, but that’s still not enough to bring this show back. This is an ensemble show, and you need the entire cast to be present in order for the property to work. There hasn’t ever been any interest in bringing the show back unless every single person was on board with the idea and that’s the way it should be.
Are you disappointed there’s no Sex and the City 3?
