In a world full of hate, sadness and a heck load of problems, there is one movie that can always cheer us up – Sex and the City, of course! Whether you’re a Miranda, a Samantha, a Charlotte or a Carrie, everyone can appreciate the sass and the fun that the Sex and the City girls bring into our lives. So, when we found out that plans the Sex and the City 3 movie had been scrapped, we were pretty distraught (like, we cried for a good few hours distraught).
The devastating news was confirmed by Sarah Jessica Parker last Friday (September 29), when she told Extra that they had reached the end of their story.
We had this beautiful, funny, heartbreaking, joyful, very relatable script and story. It’s not just disappointing that we don’t get to tell the story and have that experience, but more so for that audience that has been so vocal in wanting another movie.
Yep, that’s us. We wanted another movie, gosh darnit.
Although Sarah Jessica Parker was sad about the decision, she seemed to have accepted the fate of the franchise, and realized it had come to a natural stopping point. However, one cast member wasn’t ready to hang up her Manolos just yet – and took to Instagram to share her sadness over the cancellation.
I love to look back at the pics from our LONG history of Sex and the City. I am incredibly lucky to have gotten to play Charlotte through all of her ups and downs ( epitomized in one of my favorite episodes here). It is true that we are not going to be able to make a 3rd film. I wish that we could have made the final chapter, on our own terms, to complete the stories of our characters. It is deeply frustrating not to able to share that chapter (beautifully written by MPK) with all of you. So we will just have our memories, but please know that all of the love and support for us through the years is felt by us and we are so grateful for all of you!SATC forever in our hearts ❤️?❤️?❤️?❤️?
Kristin Davis, who has played Charlotte York through seven seasons and two movies, posted a heartfelt goodbye to the cast, crew and the fans of Sex and the City on Instagram. She wrote,

Our hearts. They hurt so much.
Unfortunately, there has been no official report as to why Sex and the City 3 was canceled, but we have a few ideas. Although fans have been eagerly awaiting another installment, the second movie didn’t do so well in the box-office, and was absolutely slated by critics…could they deal with adding another flop to the mix? Earlier this week, it was rumored that Kim Cattrall (who played Samantha) was the cause of the cancellation, because her ‘diva demands’ had been too much for the production company. However, Kim has denied these rumors and simply stated that she had no desire to return to the role. Why, Samantha, why?!
