The results are in and the
critics creators agree: Sex and the City is not just a television show, it’s a timeless journey that must never end, no matter how many times Kim Cattrall demands a bigger paycheck.
Speaking exclusively with EW this week, SATC series creator Michael Patrick King admits there’s still “one story left” and a third film to boost the series’ film franchise into trilogy territory is more likely than you’d think.
“The great gift or riches or luck is that I worked on two shows that were so full that they spilled over into people’s lives and the characters were rounded enough that you could still wonder where they are,” King told EW, noting the fact that a recent Sarah Jessica Parker interview confirms she’s totally down for anything.
Sarah Jessica and I both know what that final chapter is. That doesn’t mean it will or should be told, but I do think there’s one story left. Whether it ever happens is a whole other situation. But there’s four girls, and those girls are still in my mind. There are other stories to tell and characters that haven’t even been written yet.
There are countless Twitter accounts devoted to plotting a potential third film, and don’t even get us started on how legit the Sex and the City fandom is. If there’s one show that should never go away, it’s this.
The television series ended ten years ago this month, and EW notes the obvious, claiming the biggest hurdle standing between King and another film are the four ladies involved. Lord knows Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda have had their fair share of real life spats regarding their respective diva statuses, but at this point, refusing a role in Sex and the City 3 would be a shameful disservice.
Plus, this leaves open the possibility that Carrie will finally leave Big. Fingers crossed.
