Kim Cattrall Admits That She 'Didn't Want to Do' Sex and the City 3 - But Denies Being a Diva
Since Sex and the City 2 came out in 2010, fans of the HBO series and film sequels have eagerly speculated whether their four favorite ladies will reunite on screen for one final film. It’s been almost eight years of circulating rumors and encouraging words from actors, but it seems our favorite past-time of pondering the questions in Carrie Bradshaw’s sex column will forever be just that — a past-time.
On Thursday, Sarah Jessica Parker told Extra that any possibility of a third film is officially “over.” Parker called the news “disappointing,” but did not provide a reason why there would be no third film.
DailyMailTV claimed the third movie was shelved because of Cattrall making “outrageous demands.” The 61-year-old actress, who played the flirty and confident Samantha, refuted these claims in a tweet Friday morning, and revealed that she admitted she “didn’t want to do a third film” in 2016.
Later on Friday, Cattrall re-shared a tweet that read, “Person: *applauds SATC for showing empowered women, in control of their own lives* Same person: *insults @KimCattrall for not doing SATC3*” Added Cattrall, “Amen…”
She also retweeted a fan’s message that said, “Let Kim be. She doesn’t owe fans a third movie. The second was terrible as it was. And her projects since have been great!” Cattrall wrote alongside the user’s tweet, “Preach….”
Earlier this year, Cattrall told PEOPLE that she was unsure whether a third film would happen, adding “there’s nothing concrete. There’s no script, there’s no idea.”
“The hardest thing is, what would the story be? It’s been seven, eight years since we wrapped the last movie. Can we get everybody together? We’re all sort of scattered now,” Cattrall told PEOPLE, asking: “Are we still relevant?”
A representative for Cattrall has not responded to PEOPLE for comment.
According to Parker, Sex and the City 3 had a “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,” she said to Extra.
In the end, it seems Mr. Big actor Chris Noth had been right about the third installment all along.
“It’s over,” Chris Noth told New York Magazine after SATC 2 received lackluster reviews. “The franchise is dead.
