"They say nothing lasts forever; dreams change, trends come and go, but friendships never go out of style," Carrie Bradshaw, "Sex and the City's" lead star, played by Sarah Jessica Parker, once mused.
And although the show didn't last forever, the mind behind Bradshaw and her best friends, Samantha, Miranda and Charlotte, is back with more friendships and fun to obsess over!
"Sex and the City" author Candace Bushnell's upcoming book "Is There Still Sex in the City?," which is slated for an August 2019 release, will be turned into a television show!
Paramount Television and Anonymous Content recently acquired the rights, and Bushnell will write the pilot script and act as an executive producer for the show, according to a press release.
The book will not focus on the famous foursome, but instead on the lives and relationships of women over 50 living in New York.
The author explained the concept further in a press release:
“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," she described. "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," she continued. "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."
She also shared the book's cover and exciting news in an Instagram post.
Here's to hoping the characters in "Is There Still Sex in the City?" measure up to the women that molded friendships and relationships for 20-somethings across the globe throughout the '90s to early 2000s.
