Producer Michael Patrick King has revealed that a third Sex and the City film may be made in the future.
The writer and director agreed with Sarah Jessica Parker's recent comments that one more story based on the HBO series could be told.
He said to Entertainment Weekly: "The great gift or riches or luck is that I worked on two shows that were so full that they spilled over into people's lives and the characters were rounded enough that you could still wonder where they are."
Responding to Parker's comments, he said: "Sarah Jessica and I both know what that final chapter is. That doesn't mean it will or should be told, but I do think there's one story left. Whether it ever happens is a whole other situation. But there's four girls, and those girls are still in my mind. There are other stories to tell and characters that haven't even been written yet."
Sex and the City originally ended on HBO in February 2004, before the first movie arrived at cinemas four years later. Sex and the City 2 was released in 2010.
King added that despite the previous film's negative reaction, there is still a huge fanbase for the series, especially after The CW's prequel The Carrie Diaries.
"It's a very interesting balance of Zeitgeist and letting go and coming back and figuring out if you're done or you're not done. I listen to people a lot, actually," he said.
"What I do know is that there's interest, but with interest comes non-interest. It's all really about the stories, and if you actually think you have something left to say that would make it exciting and worthwhile for the fans' time, that's really the question. Not whether you can get away with it, not whether anybody will buy it, not whether you can make money on it. It's really like, is there enough or more to say that would justify people risking seeing their favorite characters again? And I think there's one chapter left."
King added that while a third film may not ever be released, he wanted fans to know that he and Sarah Jessica Parker were in agreement on a possible third and final installment.
