Is Sex and the City coming back to television?

This is the big rumour this morning…and if it is true, it would absolutely make my year! According to some sources, including today’s Mail on Sunday, the iconic and much missed Sex and the City may be making a welcome return..to TV.

It seems that another tv show is a definite possibility. Tha Mail  says ‘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.’ However, Darren Starr, the creator of  the show, has not given his final yes, but if SJP is on board, that yes may not be far away.

The film franchise looked set to run and run. The first film was a commercial and critical success, and led nicely to number two. But Number 2 took a universal mauling from fans and critics alike, shelving  moves to make the film series a trilogy.

In recent months, there has been much excitement about a prequel to Sex in the City based on the books  ‘The Carrie Diaries‘ and ‘Summer in the City‘. I wrote about the initial theory that Blake Lively was to  play a young Carrie  (No thank you I said). Most recent reports stated that Emma Olsen was the new choice, with Blake playing Samantha (Much better casting – especially if all the naughty Blake rumours are to be believed. But now it seems that those plans are to  be shelved too as Carrie makes her way back to her rightful place – the tv, in half  hour slots.

So, is it right to bring the girls back? Of course it is! We need more women in middle age on the tv, and we need to see what happens next in their story. Does Carrie become a mom? Will Samantha ever calm down? Will Miranda return to work? Is the domesticity Charlotte wanted all that she thought it would be? What level of more mature outfit fabulousness could Patricia Field create for the 40 and 50 somethings that the women have grown into? I really hope we get the chance to find out all this and more very soon!

For fashionista’s who fancy throwing on their glad rags and enjoying a cocktail as they shop, the Sex and the City 2 night at the Bank bar and grill in Cannock will be just the ticket. The first Sex and the City Night held in September was a great success, raising almost £1,700 to help disabled children. The follow-up event proves to have an even greater lure, with fragrances from the likes of Vera Wang, accessories, dresses, bags and shoes all on other. Items from D&G, DKNY, Roberto Cavalli and many high-end high street branches will be on offer. There are also half priced cocktails, and nibbles for those who build up an appetite when they shop, giving the night a party atmosphere.

The manager of the Bank Bar and Grill Alistair Payne say;-

“The first Sex and the City event was so successful and so many people were enthusiastic about it that we knew they’d want another event – so we’ve decided to put one on in December. This event – Sex and the City 2 – will have the same ‘girlie night’ format as the last event and there’ll be a chance to shop, have a drink, enjoy a bite to eat and socialise all at the same time. A fantastic combination that we hope will raise even more funds than the first event.”

NEWLIFE CEO Sheila Brown says;-

“I think everyone will agree that this was a great night and we’re so pleased that The Bank Bar and Lounge and Alastair Payne have decided to re-run the event. The amount they raised was a fantastic achievement and we are very grateful to everyone involved. We are expecting the next event to help us raise even more money to help disabled children.”
