Sex and the City reboot rumoured
US rumours suggest a limited event series for streaming platforms.
There are rumours in the US of a reboot for Sex and the City.
The classic ’90s New York comedy-drama about the sex lives and loves of a group of high-fashion, cosmopolitan women was an era-defining television show that spawned two hit films in 2008 and 2010 and a prequel series, The Carrie Diaries.
Now deals are being negotiated to bring back the series, according to Deadline. It suggests it’s likely to air as a limited event on streaming platform HBO Max rather than HBO, which aired the original series.
A Sex and the City reboot would be very unlikely to include Kim Cattrall, who rejected the idea of a third SATC movie, saying, “This is really where I take to task the people from Sex and the City, specifically Sarah Jessica Parker. I think she could have been nicer.”
She said of her character: “It’s a great part. I played it past the finish line and then some, and I loved it. And another actress should play it. Maybe they could make it an African-American Samantha Jones, or a Hispanic Samantha Jones.”
In 2019 there was also talk of a sequel, based on the Candace Bushnell novel “Is There Still Sex in the City?”
