HBO’s iconic series, Sex and the City, is getting a follow-up!
According to Deadline, Paramount Television has landed the rights to Sex and the City author Candace Bushnell’s upcoming novel Is There Still Sex in the City?
The book, which delved into love and dating after 50, is set to be released on August 6, 2019. Set between the Upper East Side of Manhattan and a country enclave known as The Village, the book looks at love and life, marriage and children, divorce and bereavement, as well as the very real pressures on women to maintain their youth and have it all.
“The original Sex and the City book and series served as a groundbreaking touchstone for an entire generation of women, myself included,” said president of Paramount TV Nicole Clemens. “We’re thrilled to be able to continue that conversation from the underrepresented point of view of women in their 50s and answer the question with, Yes! There is more sex in the city!”
Sex and the City followed the lives of female New Yorkers played by Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall, Kristin Davis, and Cynthia Nixon. It aired between 1998 and 2004, earning 54 Emmy nominations and 24 Golden Globes noms.
