Paramount Television and Anonymous Content have acquired the rights to Sex and the City to author Candace Bushnell’s upcoming book Is There Still Sex In The City? to develop as a TV series!
Although the follow-up of the show will not be a direct sequel, it will follow the lives of New York City women as they take on sex, dating, and friendships after the age of 50. The scene is set between Upper East Side of Manhattan and The Village. Bushnell’s book highlights love and life in all aspects, this includes - marriage, children, divorce, and a whole lot more! Bushnell will write the script and executive produce along with Liza Chasin and Robyn Meisinger.
Bushnell expressed, “In short, retirement-age folks weren't meant to do much of anything but get older and a bit heavier. They weren't expected to exercise, start new business ventures, move to a different state, have casual sex with strangers, and start all over again. But this is exactly what the lives of a lot of fifty- and sixty-something women look like today, and I'm thrilled to be reflecting the rich, complexity of their reality on the page and now on the screen.”
The original Sex and the City first aired in 1998 and the last episode was in 2004. Years later and the fans are still crazy about the show! Candace, as well as the fans, are excited to get started.
The book is set to publish on August 6, 2019 by Grove Atlantic. The show is expected to arrive in 2020, so keep an eye out for it! Let us know, if are feeling this. Are you here for the follow-up of Sex and the City?
