NEW YORK, Oct. 17 (UPI) -- Sarah Jessica Parker is giving fans new hope for Sex and the City 3.
The 51-year-old actress, who played Carrie Bradshaw on the HBO series and in two movies, hinted a third film is still a possibility while appearing on CBS Sunday Morning.
"I will say that the idea, it rests in the butler's pantry. It's not on the table, but somebody is holding it fairly nearby," she told host Jane Pauley.
Sex and the City had a six-season run from 1998 to 2004, and was followed by Sex and the City (2008) and Sex and the City 2 (2010). Parker had shut down rumors of a third film in September.
"The last movie came out in 2010. It was 13 years of my life, give or take. How better to have spent a career? And now it's time for me to do something else," she said in an interview with Time magazine.
Parker didn't provide further details to CBS, but did say it's "a privilege" to have her legacy so intertwined with Sex and the City. She also revealed her fame from the series has affected her decisions since.
"I feel that we are a fairly intimate group, this gang of 10 million that watch the show, do you know what I mean? So I feel it behooves me to be responsible to and for every single thing I do," the star said.
Parker presently portrays Frances on the HBO series Divorce. The comedy co-stars Thomas Haden Church, Molly Shannon and Talia Balsam and airs Sundays at 1 a.m. EDT.
