Sex and the City to return to TV

Los Angeles - Sex and the City could return to TV screens.

The hit TV series - which ended in 2004 after six seasons before being turned into two movies - is being lined up for a new run after creator Darren Star and the show's main star Sarah Jessica Parker decided on the direction it should take.

A source told the Mail on Sunday newspaper: "Ultimately Darren Star - the man who created the hit series - will have the overall say, but everyone is agreed a TV show is the direction they want to take the franchise in.

"Sarah Jessica Parker will be producing. She was worried about doing another film after the bad reaction to the Sex and the City 2 movie, but a TV show is definitely something she wants to happen."

Panned by critics

The show focused on the lives of four single women in New York - writer Carrie Bradshaw (Parker), lawyer Miranda Hobbs (Cynthia Nixon), man-eater PR guru (Samantha Jones) and art gallery worker (Charlotte York) - and their rollercoaster love lives.

The series ended in 2004 with the women all settling down while the two movies caught up with the women to see what was happening with them all.

While the first film was a huge hit, the second failed to live up to expectations and was widely panned by critics.

It is not known what the focus of the new TV series will be.
