We’ve had The Carrie Diaries, we’ve had the movies (one we liked, one we shall not ever speak of again), and now we’ll have the spin-off ahem, follow-up. Per Deadline, Paramount TV announced Wednesday that it is developing a TV series based on Candace Bushnell’s Is There Still Sex in the City, a forthcoming nonfiction book that picks up where her original opus left off. “The original Sex and the City book and series served as a groundbreaking touchstone for an entire generation of women, myself included,” Nicole Clemens, president of Paramount Television, said in a statement. “We’re thrilled to be able to continue that conversation from the underrepresented point of view of women in their 50s and answer the question with, ‘Yes! There is more sex in the city!’”

Bushnell’s new book is due August 6, but it won’t feature Carrie, Miranda, Charlotte, or Samantha. Instead, per Entertainment Weekly, the “potential series is not styled as a direct follow-up to Sex and the City, as it traces the dating habits of middle-aged people on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, tackling everything from Tinder dates to casual sex over 50.” Friends: Change a conjunction to a preposition, and slip on your Manolos!
