    This is a public service announcement to all Sex and the City fans. Do not dust off your Manolos just yet. Contrary to popular (and hopeful) belief, SATC 3 is not in the making.

    Even though it looked like we were so close to sipping on Cosmos with the fab four once again – two years ago Sex and the City creator Michael Patrick King revealed that he had plans for the final chapter and last year SJP made our hearts palpitate with excitement every time she went on social media – Carrie Bradshaw herself has now spoken on the subject.

    Speaking on Sirius XM satellite radio show Just Jenny, Parker revealed: ‘A really close friend of Michael Patrick [King] just texted my very best friend yesterday and said, “Do you know when they might make Sex and the City 3?” because he wants to go have fun. There are currently no plans.’

    ‘I am not being cagey or withholding. You would see through that,’ she added.

    The best quotes from Sex and the City

    The flames of excitement about a third outing for the TV show-turned-movie franchise were first fanned last year, when SJP shared a cryptic message on social media with Kristin Davis about the ‘news’ that had been ‘zooming around’.

    Ok, so we may have allowed our inner SATC addict read way too deep into those, but can you blame a girl?

    Problem is, that’s not the only bad news. The idea of a Hocus Pocus reunion has also been put to bed.

    This is how many of the storylines in Sex and the City were actually true

    Although Bette Midler got our hopes up in 2014 when she told a Reddit AMA that her, SJP and Kathy Najimy were up for dusting off their broomsticks for a sequel, on the same Sirirus XM show, SJP also opened up about those too, saying: ‘Thus far, no plans.’

    We’re still keeping our fingers crossed that they’ll grace our screens once again. Heck, we’ll even throw in a few toes.
