Sarah Jessica Parker has dropped the biggest hint yet about a 'Sex And The City' comeback
As Carrie Bradshaw asked herself many a time over the years: could this finally be the real thing?
Ever since Sex And The City finished its TV run in 2004 - and ever since the second spinoff movie came out in 2010 - Sarah Jessica Parker has been repeatedly hounded about the possibility of further instalments of the series.
While she and her three castmates - Kim Cattrall, Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon - have all diplomatically given variations of the "never say never" stock response, SJP has now given the most explicit indication yet that something new might be on the cards.
The star was giving an interview to the Press Association over the weekend to publicise her new TV series Divorce - written by Irish comedy superstar Sharon Horgan - when the subject of a SATC comeback was raised.
And in her response, SJP revealed that a return to TV might be just as likely as a third movie instalment.
“I don’t think any of us have said no,” she said. “I don’t know whether it’s a series or the movie. I think that remains an open question and discussion that will continue until it’s been resolved. I think that’s always a possibility, definitely.”
The original series started on air in 1998 - so perhaps there might be a short-run 20th anniversary reunion series around 2017/2018?
SJP and the three other leading ladies are wise to approach with caution, however. While the first SATC movie was relatively well received upon its release in 2008, the second film was an unqualified disaster, with even the show's biggest fans having to concede that it was a mess.
So while any future instalments - be it as a series or another movie - couldn't possibly be as bad as the last movie, an, ahem, premature comeback of any sort could risk contaminating the brand's initial critical success even further.
