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?”

  1. Maybe they could do a combo one, have Sex In The City Meets Girls (the Lena Dunham show), after all both were living in New York Carrie was a writer, Hannah was a writer, maybe they could catch-up at Central Perk Cafe or something.

      1. Hahahha Joey doing the How you Doin’ to Samantha and her responding How Are You Doing (Reow). Also Seinfeld meets It’s Always Sunny would be good, be easy to do as well all they’d have to do is have Jerry get a stand-up gig in Philadelphia and George, Elaine and Kramer tag along.

          1. Yeah however do it for real, though any genre could be done together.

            Though of mash-ups there is a really good one of It’s Always Sunny and Homeland on YouTube called It’s Always Sunny In Homeland from 8 years ago, well apart from the music used as it wasn’t needed.

  2. As exciting as it would be.. i think this should be left all of them are in or nothing. Why risk it tarnishing the history of it. It wouldnt be the same without Samantha or someone else playing her they could write her out maybe. Mixed feelings with this one!
