Rumors have been flying about Sex and the City returning to television, and about a possible Sex and the City prequel. Well hold on to your Manolos, ladies, they are one in the same. An HBO rep confirmed that, “Discussions are underway for The Carrie Diaries, Candice Bushnell’s book about Carrie Bradshaw’s high school years, to find a home as a potential television series." The book tracks Carrie's post-high school years in a 1980s New York City... can't wait to see how they portray the bad old days!

HBO is shopping the idea around, and EW reports that it may end up on the CW. They also note that Darren Star won't be involved, but Gossip Girl producers Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage may come on board to produce.
