Leave it to the RL Charlotte to be an eternal optimist! Kim Cattrall may have totally squashed any hope of fans seeing her as the fabulous Samantha Jones in Sex and the City 3, sparking rumors that she caused the movie to be shelved completely, but Kristin Davis has just given us renewed hope that the project might still be a go.

Attending the Stand Up for Pits Benefit in Hollywood on Sunday, the Z Nation actress was asked if there’s any chance for a third film, following the back and forth we’ve seen from the cast in recent months. The 52-year-old painted a much brighter picture than we had her from her previously, saying, “I always have hope!”

As you may recall, Davis expressed her “deep frustrations” that she wouldn’t be able to complete her character’s story in an Instagram rant back in September, saying, “…. It is true that we are not going to be able to make a 3rd film. I wish that we could have made the final chapter, on our own terms, to complete the stories of our characters. It is deeply frustrating not to able to share that chapter (beautifully written by MPK) with all of you.”

While the new response wasn’t exactly a confirmation, it was definitely a welcome change from where things last stood last.

Fueling that wave of optimism were Sarah Jessica Parker (AKA Carrie Bradshaw) and Cynthia Nixon (Miranda Hobbes), who were spotted out on the town together once more.

Nixon posted a shot of the gang to her page, and from the looks of things, they were friendlier than ever as they reunited for a screening of the Amazon pilot Love You More, from Michael Patrick King (an executive producer on the SATC).

Fans were certainly feeling the love, leaving adoring comments such as, “You and Sarah, omg, [I] love you girls” and “Carrie and Miranda 😭😭😭 WE WANT SATC 3 !!!!!”

Us too, guys. Us too.

Do you think there’s any chance that Sex and the City 3 will happen? Let us know @BritandCo!
