Any Sex and the City fans still holding out for a third movie, we have bad news – it most definitely is NOT happening.
Star Sarah Jessica Parker confirmed that the movie is not going ahead following reports that the project had been shelved just days before it was due to begin production.
“It’s over… we’re not doing it,” the actress told Extra, adding that she was “disappointed” over the news.

“We had this beautiful, funny, heartbreaking, joyful, very relatable script and story. It’s not just disappointing that we don’t get to tell the story and have that experience, but more so for that audience that has been so vocal in wanting another movie.”
It was reported in December that a deal for the next outing for Carrie, Charlotte, Miranda and Samantha was “done” and had “been approved by all the women”.
SJP seemed much more confident at the beginning of this year about a third film, revealing: “It’s in a warming drawer. It’s never been a ‘no’…it’s always been an ‘if’ and ‘when’.
“And that remains the question being asked by two very thoughtful people who are taking into very serious consideration those people who devoted a lot of time. We’re not cavalier about the way we arrive at that decision.”
Producer Michael Patrick King previously explained of a third film: “Sarah Jessica and I both know what that final chapter is. That doesn’t mean it will or should be told, but I do think there’s one story left.”
Parker recently admitted that the last movie, Sex and the City 2, was not very good, explaining: “I can see where we fell short on that movie, and I’m perfectly happy to say that publicly. I will say, I also understand how much friggin’ money it made.”
