This week we heard some disappointing news: Sex and the City 3 isn’t happening. That’s right, Sarah Jessica Parker herself confirmed the news on Thursday, saying she’s disappointed the movie franchise based on the iconic HBO series is done. And SPJ wasn’t the only core cast member to express sour feelings: Kristin Davis is also unhappy that there won’t be another film.
The actress posted an Instagram Friday with two side-by-side photos of her character Charlotte—one at her most vulnerable and one where she’s predictably polished.
“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 ❤️💗❤️💗❤️💗❤️💗”
Both Davis and Parker mentioned that there is a script kicking around for the third movie, it’s just not being made. Of course, there could be dozens of reasons it’s not happening. One theory is that Kim Catrall, who played Samantha, made too many demands about the movie which halted production, but she’s come forward on Twitter saying she just didn’t want to make a third film, plain and simple.
Fans have been asking for another SATC movie since the second one premiered, either because they can’t get enough of Carrie, Charlotte, Samantha, and Miranda or they can’t stand that Carrie and Big ended up together and they want to see if it really lasts. Sadly, we won’t get to know what happens next, but we can seek solace in the fact that there are 94 original TV episodes and over six hours of film to relive.
