Get ready for some more Sex and the City!
HBO’s iconic series starring Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall, Kristin Davis, and Cynthia Nixon is getting a follow-up series. According to Variety, Paramount Television has landed the rights to author Candace Bushnell’s upcoming novel Is There Still Sex in the City?
The book, which delved into love and dating after 50, is set to be released on August 2019. Set between the Upper East Side of Manhattan and a country enclave known as The Village, the book looks at love and life, marriage and children, divorce and bereavement, as well as the very real pressures on women to maintain their youth and have it all.
“The original Sex and the City book and series served as a groundbreaking touchstone for an entire generation of women, myself included,” said president of Paramount TV Nicole Clemens. “We’re thrilled to be able to continue that conversation from the underrepresented point of view of women in their 50s and answer the question with, Yes! There is more sex in the city!”
Bushnell will penn the pilot and serve as exec producer on the project.
