The author of the Sex and the City novels has said it is likely Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda will make a return to our screens in the near future.

Candace Bushnell, who wrote a dating column for The New York Observer in the Nineties that was later turned into a book, said she believes another film or TV series would happen because people “want to revisit those characters”.

“They feel like friends and people we knew. It’s like the phenomenon of Friends. People really, really felt like the characters on Friends were their friends," she told The Independent.

"It’s the same thing with Sex and the City – we feel like those characters are our girlfriends, we feel like we really know them."

She added she had no say over whether there will be a third Sex and the City movie, but hoped there would be.

“It’s not up to me, but I feel like we’re going to revisit those characters, maybe in another movie or something, down the road.

"I don’t know anything about this and of course I’ll say this and they’ll say ‘Candance Bushnell says there’s going to be a Sex and the City 3’, which I’m not, but I feel like people will want to revisit those characters and I’d love to revisit them too.”

Bushnell said she was also considering continuing her Sex and the City prologue novels, having previously written The Carrie Diaries and Summer and the City.


“It’s a little bit up to my publisher: if they want me to write another one then I will. In the next one, Carrie was going to meet Charlotte, because she’s met Samantha, and she’s met Miranda.”

Bushnell served as a producer on the hit HBO series, based on her anthology of columns published as a book under the same name.

Two of her other novels have been adapted into TV series, including Lipstick Jungle for NBC and The Carrie Diaries for CW.
