Sex and the City to Return for a Seventh Season?
Sex and the City, the successful franchise that originally ran for six seasons on HBO before becoming two feature-length films, might be returning to television for a seventh season. That's Sarah Jessica Parker's plan, at least, according to The Daily Mail. Reports indicate that Parker was reluctant to make a third film after the lukewarm reception that the second film received from critics.
Parker, who starred as Carrie Bradshaw in all six seasons of the series and both films, reportedly wants to produce the series' return to HBO, though "Darren Star - the man who created the hit series - will have the overall say," the Mail's source says. "Everyone is agreed a TV show is the direction they want to take the franchise in."
Returning to television would disrupt plans for a slated prequel film to the series, starring Blake Lively and Emma Roberts as younger versions of the characters. It's unknown yet whether HBO or Darren Star will go ahead with the rebooted series, though we'll let you know when confirmation of either's participation appears.
Parker will next appear in December's romantic comedy New Year's Eve. She has not returned to scripted television since Sex and the City wrapped up in 2004.
