Sex And The City WILL Return To TV - But Who Should Play Its Star?

Who Will Be The Next Carrie Bradshaw?

Sex And The City fans can rejoice today, or at least that's what TV execs are hoping, as a prequel to the Manhattan Manolo-obsessed series is confirmed after months of speculation.

The tale of Carrie Bradshaw's life in New York will be rebooted, however, this time it will be based on a spin-off novel written by the series' original creator Candice Bushnell and set while Carrie was at high-school, long before she decided to set sail for New York City and the infamous Mr Big.

America's CW network have ordered a pilot episode based on Bushell's The Carrie Diaries and the show will be created by Gossip Girl producers Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage, according to

The pair are no strangers to making teen-friendly series, however, questions remain on who should be cast as Carrie and Kim Cattrall's sex-fond character Samantha.

It's believed that dainty Charlotte and red-haired Miranda won't appear in the pilot at all as they don't feature in the book. Names thrown into the ring for Carrie so far include Miley Cyrus, who has already told Access of her hopes to star in the show.

Cyrus said: "I would love it. I'm not attached, so I don't want to say that, but that would be very cool."

Blake Lively, who stars in Gossip Girl as Serena van der Woodsen, is also thought to be a frontrunner.
