This Week In Unsubstantiated Sex and the City Rumors…

Consider the source, of course—no, not Queerty, the U.K. newspaper The Daily Mail—but an unnamed “insider” is talking about the cast of Sex and the City‘s desire to return to television for more seasons. Here’s what they say:

Sex And The City is to return to our TV screens after producers met in Hollywood last week to discuss the new show.

“Ultimately Darren Star—the man who created the hit series—will have the overall say, but everyone is agreed a TV show is the direction they want to take the franchise in,” says [unnamed Mail source]. “Sarah Jessica Parker will be producing. She was worried about doing another film after the bad reaction to the SATC2 movie, but a TV show is definitely something she wants to happen.”

Obviously, without official confirmation this is just wishful thinking. But honestly, the franchise’s best interests could be very well-served if it turns out to be true. Just on an idea level, exploring the sexual lives of these now-middle-aged and late-middle-aged women±and maybe turning down the volume on the zany camel antics, the extreme consumer indulgence, the bizarre “I Am Woman” karaoke sing-alongs and all the other stuff that caused the stinging afterburn of Sex and the City 2—might just rally and renew an audience that wants to be loyal to something they used to love.

Or they could just let them battle some Decepticons, surround them with talking animals or send them all on a 3D pirating adventure. Whatever it takes.
