This HAS to happen

Fans of Sex and the City, rejoice, as we have even more great news for those of you who are hoping for a revival of the show (six seasons and two movies just wasn't enough, people).

We've had our hopes dashed on many an occasion, but this time it looks like we might finally get what we've been waiting for. Yes, rumours (and serious rumours at that) are doing the rounds about a potential spin off to the show – and for once they have nothing to do with Sarah Jessica Parker.

It was recently discussed on The Wendy Williams Show that one of the show's stars, Kim Cattrall, is currently in talks with HBO to reprise her SATC character, Samantha Jones.

Kim later responded to the show's discussion with the below tweet, saying: 'I'm so unbelievably flattered & moved @WendyWilliams Can't WAIT 2 get back 2 the serious business of making u all laugh! Fingers x'd.' And it's made us *seriously* hopeful that this spin off going to happen.

Naturally, this sent Sex and the City fans into a complete frenzy. Kim then responded with the same 'Fingers x'd' to a fan who tweeted 'OMG. So this pretty much confirms a Sam Jones SATC spin-off is imminent'.

Fans have been hoping for a Sex and the City 3 movie for absolutely ages, but things are looking increasingly unlikely that it will ever happen for us, even Kim Cattrall herself said that she thought chances of a third instalment going ahead were very slim.

But this time it really does seem like we're going to have one of the Sex and the City ladies return to our screens, and a Samantha Jones comeback is just what we need. Let's hope that it all comes together in the end... Come on HBO, give the people what they want.

Fingers x'd indeed.
