After much anticipation, Sarah Jessica Parker has announced that the beloved Sex and the City franchise will not return for a third reboot, as reported by CNN.
On Thursday, the actress confirmed the rumors making waves in an interview with Extra as she and her husband, Matthew Broderick, made their way to the New York City Ballet Gala. “It’s over,” she said. “We’re not doing it.”
Since Sex and the City 2 was released in 2010, fans of the foursome have been clamoring for news of the next movie. Parker went on to say she was “disappointed.” “We had this beautiful, funny, heartbreaking, joyful, very relatable script and story,” she continued. “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.”
I love to look back at the pics from our LONG history of Sex and the City. I am incredibly lucky to have gotten to play Charlotte through all of her ups and downs ( epitomized in one of my favorite episodes here). It is true that we are not going to be able to make a 3rd film. I wish that we could have made the final chapter, on our own terms, to complete the stories of our characters. It is deeply frustrating not to able to share that chapter (beautifully written by MPK) with all of you. So we will just have our memories, but please know that all of the love and support for us through the years is felt by us and we are so grateful for all of you!SATC forever in our hearts ❤️?❤️?❤️?❤️?

In addition to Parker, Kristen Davis, who played Charlotte on the popular HBO series and it’s big-screen adaptions, also shared her frustration about the news. “It is true that we are not going to be able to make a [third] film,” Davis wrote in heartfelt Instagram post on Friday. “I wish that we could have made the final chapter, on our own terms, to complete the stories of our characters. It is deeply frustrating not to able to share that chapter (beautifully written by [Sex and the City creator Michael Patrick King]) with all of you. So we will just have our memories.”
The reason for the third movie being scrapped hasn’t been confirmed but, DailyMailTV claimed the cause was due to actress Kim Cattrall’s “outrageous demands.” However, Cattrall, who played Samantha, denied the claims. “Woke 2 a @MailOnline ?storm! The only ‘DEMAND’ I ever made was that I didn’t want to do a 3rd film…. that was back in 2016,” she wrote on her Instagram account.
