Sex and the City author Candace Bushnell is bringing us more tv comedy.
Adapted from her book, Is There Still Sex in the City? focuses on experiencing love and loss. And it’s set in Manhattan. Sounds just like Sex and the City, right? Well, this time around, the women are in their 50s and 60s.
That’s the same age the characters from Sex and the City would be today. So are we getting a revival of the hit show that ran from 1998 to 2004? Keep reading to find out.
Are the Original Sex and the City Characters Coming Back?
Fans went nuts when Sarah Jessica Parker revisited her famous character in 2019. In an ad for Stella Artois and #PourItForward, she steps through the Manhattan streets decked out in a tulle skirt and killer lace sock boots. The outfit screamed Classic Carrie.
Unfortunately, that may have been the last we’ll ever see of Carrie Bradshaw. Neither Parker or her former co-stars – Kim Cattrall, Kristin Davis, and Cynthia Nixon – have signed on to reprise their beloved roles. And Bushnell herself announced this isn’t a sequel.
But even without Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte, and Miranda, we bet producers will deliver the same elements that made Sex and the City a cult classic. Here’s what we hope to see.
In her columns, Carrie really brought New York City to life, making it the show’s fifth main character. She even called it her boyfriend, and her great love.
Is There Still Sex in the City? takes place in Manhattan, specifically the Upper East Side and the Village. We’re guaranteed sights of the Chrysler Building, Central Park, and Fifth Avenue.
It was never really about the men. The most inspiring relationships on Sex and the City were the bonds among the four women.
They supported each other through infertility, divorce, and even death. We can be sure it’s not all brunch and cosmos on Is There Still Sex in the City? either.
They show promises to explore the challenges of marriage, bereavement, and more. Who better to weather these storms than your closest friends?
We’re still crazy about the girls’ eclectic style, and we’re not the only ones. Fans have kept their outfits alive on Instagram, revisiting everything from those infamous mismatched shoes to the naked dress.
While some covet Carrie’s designer shoe collection, we’re all about the accessories. Who can forget that iconic Carrie name necklace?
Surely, the women of Is There Still Sex in the City won’t be dressing like your typical grandma.
That’s the Scoop
We can’t wait for another exciting show centered around best friends and fabulous fashion. Who knows, we may even get some guest appearances from the original cast.
