at .  Updated at .

While a third Sex and the City will likely never happen, it looks like a new story set in the Sex and the City universe could be told. 

The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed that Paramount TV is entertaining the possibility of a series based on Candace Bushnell's novel Is There Still Sex in the City?

Bushnell wrote the original book the HBO TV series was originally based on, but there's no telling whether the original cast members would sign up to such a project.

THR does note that there's no word yet on whether the potential series would be a sequel. 

The book is slated to be released in August and examines sex, friendship, and dating after turning 50. 

"It didn't used to be this way. At one time, fifty-something meant the beginning of retirement — working less, spending more time on your hobbies, with your friends, who like you were sliding into a more leisurely lifestyle," said Bushnell in a statement to the website.

"In short, retirement-age folks weren't meant to do much of anything but get older and a bit heavier. They weren't expected to exercise, start new business ventures, move to a different state, have casual sex with strangers, and start all over again."

"But this is exactly what the lives of a lot of fifty- and sixty-something women look like today, and I'm thrilled to be reflecting the rich, complexity of their reality on the page and now on the screen."

Despite reports of a third Sex and the City movie, it has emerged that it will not be going ahead after a breakdown in the relationship between Kim Cattrall and Sarah Jessica Parker. 

The original series ran for six seasons on HBO and was a roaring success. 

Parker did slip back into her Carrie Bradshaw wardrobe for a recent Super Bowl Stella Artois ad.

Sex and the City Quotes

Charlotte is trying to decide whether to have anal sex with a man she's dating.
Miranda: It all depends on how much you like him?
Charlotte: A lot.
Miranda: "Dating a few months until somebody better comes along a lot", or "marrying him and moving to the East Hampton's" a lot?
Charlottte: I don't know, I'm not sure.
Miranda: Well, you better get sure real quick.
Charlotte: You're scaring me.
Carrie: Don't scare her.
Miranda: It's all about control. If he goes up there, there's gonna be a shift in power, either he'll have the upper hand or you will. Now there's a certain camp that believe whoever holds the dick, holds the power. (Cab Driver turns around) Hello, you're driving! The question is, if he goes up your butt, will he respect you more or respect you less? That's the issue.
Cab Driver: No smoking in cab.
Carrie: Sir, were talking "up the butt", a cigarette is in order.
(Cuts to Samantha now in the cab)
Samantha: Front. Back. Who cares? A hole is a hole.
Miranda: Can I quote you?
Samantha: Don't be so judgmental. You could use a little back door.
Charlotte: I'm not a hole.
Carrie: Honey, we know.
Samantha: Look, all I'm saying is this is a physical expression, that the body, well, it was designed to experience. And p.s., it's fabulous.

Men, in their 40's are like the New York Times Sunday crossword puzzle; tricky, complicated and you're never really sure you've got the right answer.
