Hold on to your Jimmy Choos, something amazing is in the works!
Sarah Jessica Parker took to Instagram this weekend to tease the return of her beloved Sex and the City character, Carrie Bradshaw. In a video recreating the opening credits of Sex and the City, Parker teased a brief return of her character in support of a good cause. "My old friend. She is making a brief reappearance. Partnering with a great brand and supporting a cause we all care about. More to come. X, SJ," Parker wrote.
The Sex and the City theme song scored that video as a dolled-up Parker walked the streets of New York City -- though thankfully this time there was no bus to spray her with gutter water. The teaser ended with the hashtag, #PourItForward, but your guess is as good as ours at this point when it comes to what she's promoting. (We've reached out to Parker's reps for comment.) If it gives us Carrie Bradshaw back though, we're on board!
Sex and the City has been making a lot of headlines lately, first when Parker's longstanding feud with her co-star Kim Cattrall flared up again and then again when Chris Noth, who played Carrie's one true love, Big, revealed that his character would have been killed off in the canceled third Sex and the City movie.
Sex and the City is currently streaming on HBO Now and Amazon Prime.

Gotham teased a big comeback for Jeremiah (Cameron Monaghan) this season, and this week we were gifted almost an entire hour dedicated to the following he's building, but we are now three episodes into the show's final season and haven't actually seen the return of the prodigal son of madness. Luckily, the wait is almost over.
"We'll start to see Jeremiah pretty much the next episode," executive producer John Stephens confirms for TV Guide. "We start to understand that he's doing a larger plot that's going on, but we will see him the next episode and then carry through."
That larger plot will lead to another big move for Jeremiah, as well as another step in his evolution as one of Batman's biggest foes. However, we will not see him identify as the villain we all know him to be.
"You never see a full transformation into the Joker, but you do see another transformation," Stephens says. "Jeremiah undergoes another evolution in his character to become another amalgam of Jeremiah and Jerome that I think audiences are gonna look at and say, 'If it's not the Joker then it's definitely an antecedent or a proto-Joker that lives there."
First, though, Jeremiah must throw down with Selina (Camren Bicondova) after he shot her in the Season 4 finale, which left her paralyzed for a few weeks. She would have stayed that way if Bruce (David Mazouz) hadn't bargained with Poison Ivy (Peyton List) to find a cure. Now, Selina is on the hunt for Jeremiah and her thirst for revenge will have major consequences.
"I think [Selina] absolutely holds her own [against Jeremiah]. I think she more than holds her own," Stephens teases. "I think she's so driven by the pain of revenge and what happened to her at the end of last season that it drives her to commit an act which then haunts her for the rest of the season."
So, it looks like there's an evolution in the works for both of these iconic Batman characters.
Gotham continues Thursdays at 8/7c on Fox.

The sign of a good TV character is that the audience wants to see them in any new scenario or setting.
Raymond Reddington (James Spader) in prison is a Blacklist premise that I didn't really know I needed, but is so easy to get right. The world's most cunning criminal locked up with a bunch of lesser villains? Immediately enjoyable in this week's episode.
As with most Blacklist conceits, the pleasure of Red in prison comes not in the mystery of whether or not he'll succeed in dangerous circumstances, but how he will do it. Red always wins. Even when he seemingly loses, he eventually wins. The man is like a Silicon Valley tech CEO: every failure is really just a triumph if you think about it hard enough.
"The Pawnbrokers" barely pretended to put Red in peril. After a quick introduction to the prison's major players from Red's new Dembe-like companion Vontae (Coy Stewart), Red quickly found himself on the wrong end of a beating from one of those players, Baldomero (Jacinto Taras Riddick).
Yet while Vontae panicked and Baldomero barked about shivving Red "day after tomorrow," Red got to work on, uh, his messenger rat plan? Yes indeed, Red caught a rat, tied a message to its neck and guided it safe passage beyond the prison walls, opening a communication channel with Dembe. You don't get to be the FBI's most wanted man for nothing!
Unsurprisingly, Red's plan to take down Baldomero worked with very little resistance thanks to the classic victory of brains over brawn. He weaseled out of a good shivving just long enough to reveal Baldomero's secrets to everyone in the yard, while Dembe worked on the outside to get Baldomero released to face even more evil dudes in the real world. And just like that, Red turned the tables on the entire prison population, becoming a folk hero for ending Baldomero's tyrannical reign in the process.
Though it might have been compelling to watch Red get truly beaten down -- mentally and physically -- by his stint in the clink, The Blacklist is never going to be that kind of show. This prison didn't seem particularly hazardous anyway, so it stands to reason that his evil genius would quickly outsmart everyone.
Perhaps this quick success will only make some later struggles that much more interesting. Or Red will continue to be the smartest, coolest person in every room he enters, and even some of those he doesn't.
To that end, somehow Liz's (Megan Boone) plan to uncover the truth about her fake father has already hit a snag because Red covered his tracks so well in the past. How long until not-father indirectly convinces not-daughter that some version of the truth is not worth the emotional toil of Red in prison?
The Blacklist airs Fridays at 9/8c on NBC.
