Fans of hit show Sex and the City take heart - creator Candace Bushnell says it's "inevitable" it will return in some form.

The HBO show, which ran from 1998-2004 and spawned two feature films, was based on the book by Candace Bushnell, which had been based on her dating column for The New York Observer.

Bushnell believes fans want to "revisit those characters", namely Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker), Samantha (Kim Cattrall), Charlotte (Kristin Davis) and Miranda (Cynthia Nixon).

Speaking to The Independent, she said, “They feel like friends and people we knew. It’s like the phenomenon of Friends. People really, really felt like the characters on Friends were their friends.

"It’s the same thing with Sex and the City – we feel like those characters are our girlfriends, we feel like we really know them."

While she has nothing to do with the development of a third Sex and the City movie, she's behind the idea.

“It’s not up to me, but I feel like we’re going to revisit those characters, maybe in another movie or something, down the road.

"I don’t know anything about this and of course I’ll say this and they’ll say ‘Candance Bushnell says there’s going to be a Sex and the City 3’, which I’m not, but I feel like people will want to revisit those characters and I’d love to revisit them too.”

She also said she may continue the Sex and the City saga with more prologue novels.  Previously she wrote The Carrie Diaries, which was turned into a TV show, and Summer in the City.

Has Sarah Jessica Parker just told us that Sex and the City 3 is on the cards?
