‘Sex and the City’ Follow Up Series is in the Works

Don’t call it a sequel, call it a follow up to one of the most groundbreaking TV shows ever, Sex and the City. 

According to Variety, the series draws from Candance Bushnell’s latest book, Is There Still Sex in the City?, which Paramount TV (think Younger) just acquired the rights to.

Bushnell is the woman behind the original SATC book.

Though the book will be released on August 6th, the series is already in the works with a focus on love, dating, friendship and sex — so everything SATC focused on — for women over fifty in New York City.

“It didn’t used to be this way. At one time, fifty something meant the beginning of retirement—working less, spending more time on your hobbies, with your friends, who like you were sliding into a more leisurely lifestyle,” Bushnell said in a statement. “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.”

Given that the series isn’t being labeled a sequel, we don’t expect to see original foursome. Chances begin to look even slimmer when you think about all the off-screen drama being reported to the media as of late.

Though we’re 100% open to guest-stars.

“The original Sex And The City book and series served as a groundbreaking touchstone for an entire generation of women, myself included,” said Nicole Clemens, President of Paramount Television. “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!’”

Bushnell is attached to the pilot and will also serve as an executive producer.

The original SATC found much success on HBO from 1998-2006.
At one point last year, there were talks of a third film, but Kim Catrall (who has beef with leading lady Sarah Jessica Parker) nixed the idea.
As we wait for this new phase in our lives and chapter in SATC, we always have reruns.
Grab those martinis, ladies!

Sophia Bush Reveals Challenges of Working With Ex Chad Michael Murray on ‘One Tree Hill’ After Divorce

Sophia Bush Reveals Challenges of Working With Ex Chad Michael Murray on 'One Tree Hill' After Divorce

Sophia Bush may have just gotten married, but she’s reflecting on a past, high-profile relationship on the Drama Queens podcast.

Specifically, her marriage and divorce from One Tree Hill co-star, Chad Michael Murray. 

While chatting with her former co-stars, Bethany Joy Lenz and Hilarie Burton—who are all too familiar with what went down between Biush and Murray—the actress opened up about the hardships of having to work on set after the couple divorced in 2006. They got engaged in 2004 and married in 2005. 

In fact, Bush said it was even more difficult because their characters, Brooke Davis and Lucas Scott, started dating around the same time their relationship was hitting a rough patch that it would never bounce back from. 

“Not for nothing, you were going through a breakup with the person that you were playing a romance opposite of,” Joy Lenz said. 

“And regardless of what all those circumstances were, that’s incredibly difficult — emotionally to be able to be vulnerable and be there in that moment. There’s lots of actors who have done that — who’ve done movies and TV shows and things, they date their costar or whatever, it doesn’t work out. But the fact that you were able to just be that raw and open and vulnerable, it’s a real credit to you as an artist.  You put your art in front of everybody and just were like, ‘Look, this is it. I’m just sharing my heart and here we are’. I thought it was really beautiful,” she said. 

Bush gave a very mature answer, explaining that regardless of what was going on in her personal life, she prioritized the show and the character that resonated with so many young women.

“People can call it whatever they want. They can say it’s strength, they can say it’s pride, they can say its professionalism — you can put a positive or a negative skew on I, but I was always going to put Brooke Davis ahead of everybody and everything else. Nothing mattered to me but being honest for her,” she explained.

The actress, who recently wed Grant Hughes in a stunning and poignant Oklahoma wedding, previously refused to speak about her marriage to Murray as she didn’t want her career to be defined by a relationship. 

 “I refuse to let that one relationship define me, which is why I’ve done my best to avoid discussing it for 10 years,” she began, while acknowledging that it was a “massive event” in her life. 

She added: “The trauma of it was amplified by how public it became, which was incredibly foreign and bizarre to a girl who’d been just another college kid 24 months before her life blew up.”

 
Bush remained on OTH for the show’s full nine-season duration, which wrapped in 2012. Meanwhile, Murray exited the teen drama in season 6. He has since started a family with Crackle co-star Sarah Roemer. The duo married in 2015 and share two children.
