She says the idea is very much alive.
It wasn’t that long ago that HBO debuted a series about four young women living in New York who were looking for love, laughter and in some cases just sex. Can you imagine Samantha Jones today in the age of Tinder?
In fact, it was 1998, when Carrie (Parker), Miranda (Cynthia Nixon), Charlotte (Kristin Davis) and saucy Samantha (Kim Cattrall) allowed us into their single lives and let us commiserate with them as they went from man (sometimes woman)-to-man and every boutique in-between for six seasons.
In 2008, a theatrical release of the half-hour comedy/drama made its way to the big-screen to the delight of millions of fans everywhere. Then two years later, its sequel opened to sold-out audiences across the United States.
For years the rumor of part two being the penultimate installment into the theatrical franchise have been thrown around by star Sarah Jessica Parker, and it seems that those speculations are once again being tossed to the public.
In a recent interview with Jane Pauley, Parker discusses her career, her marriage and her return to HBO, in a completely different kind of relationship series called “Divorce.”
But perhaps it is what Parker said at the wrap of the one-on-one which has Sex and the City fans most intrigued.
Pauley asks Parker if a “part three” to the successful movie series is in the works.
"I will say that the idea, it rests in the butler’s pantry,” the actress told Pauley. “It’s not on the table, but somebody is holding it fairly nearby.”
Pauley then says one can’t help but imagine a “Golden Girls” version of the 18-year-old cult favorite, “You’re looking back on your lives – if you’re inclined to be looking back on your lives at all – or are you still looking forward…?”
“I would sort of imagine that those women have only interest in looking ahead,” Parker interrupts, “while being informed by the past. In a way maybe, that would be the best for all of us; living people; non-fictional as well.”
