When asked whether there’s any chance for a third SATC movie, Parker responded:
‘There is. I know what the story is. It’s a small story, but I think it should be told. The question is, what’s the right time to tell it?’ she told PARADE magazine.
(Parker also addressed her departure from Halston Heritage: ‘I will say this—I loved the experience. Everyone said I was mad to [take on a creative role there], that it had been troubled. I can’t tell you how much I’ve learned about production and fit and fabrication, the whole business. I was deeply, deeply involved. It was a great experience and I’m sorry it was shorter than I had hoped, but I don’t regret the time.’)
For a show that ended seven years ago, SATC still feels omnipresent in the ELLE team’s lives. One of us was riveted to the sofa when we stumbled upon the first film on TV two nights ago. Another of us lives with someone who, after years of refusing to sit still through a single episode (hello, male), went on a watching spree and then interrupted our weekend reading to say, ‘I can’t believe Big is leaving New York.’
The show may be dated, it may depict a specific era, the second movie may have flopped because that era’s values didn’t translate to a starker recessionary moment—but still, this is one ‘will they?/won’t they?’ question whose outcome we can’t, with conviction, state which way we’d like to go. So we’re putting it to you, dear readers: are you ready for another spin with Carrie and crew?
