A brisk fall and a blustery winter stand between now and the next "Sex."
But speculation about what will happen with Carrie and company? That's about to hit the boiling point.
The second "Sex and the City" movie, due in theaters May 2010, began shooting in Morocco and New York this summer, drawing a flood of fans, a plethora of paparazzi and revving up rumors about potential plots. It's no surprise "Sex" fiends are chomping at the bit -- the 2008 movie smashed box-office records and reeled in $415 million worldwide.
Last week, aptly named British newspaper The Mirror zoomed in on a script Kim Cattrall toted onto the set, enlarged a page and revealed to readers spoilers about character Samantha Jones' storyline.
And this week, Us Weekly's out with a cover story disclosing all sorts of juicy details about what will go down in the "Sex" sequel (besides, of course, the obvious).
WARNING: Possible Spoilers Ahead
Among the reported plot highlights: Miranda Hobbes (Cynthia Nixon) confronts her "workaholism" and shifts her focus to family; Samantha reunites with ex-beau Smith Jerrod (Jason Lewis), the hunky blond whose acting career she jump-started; Charlotte York-Goldenblatt (Kristin Davis) struggles to deal with two kids; all the boys come back, including Miranda's Steve (David Eigenberg), Charlotte's husband Harry (Evan Handler), her gay BFF Anthony (Mario Cantone) and Carrie's lovable sidekick Stanford (Willie Garson), and the gals flashback to when they first met, offering fans a chance to gawk at them in fabulously tacky '80s getups.
But, cue the ominous music, the biggest shocker of all may come for Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker) -- according to a film casting notice obtained by Us Weekly, all's not well in the kingdom of Carrie and Mr. Big, (Chris Noth), the on-again, off-again lover she finally married at the end of the first "Sex and the City" movie.
"Big loses a lot of money and takes a job in London, living alone in a one-bedroom apartment," Us quotes the casting notice as stating. "Big gets really low and ends up in bed with another woman. After she leaves him, Carrie discovers she is pregnant."
Bradshaw with a Birkin on one arm, a baby on the other, Blahniks on her feet but no Big? Us Weekly senior editor Bradley Jacbos thinks it could happen.
"Sarah Jessica's a mom, she has new twins," he mused. "It's certainly not out of the realm of possibility that Carrie would have kids."
Another reported plot ripped from reality: Samantha and Big both reel after they get hid hard by the recession.
"The show always tried to take into account real things that were happening in New York," Jacbos said. "They all lived very high on the hog, especially Big and Samantha. It makes for a good plot twist to have these people taken down a notch or two."
But if fans penned the script, things might be a bit different. ABCNews.com asked what you want to see from "Sex" next spring. While some responses ring true to the movie's reported plots, others spin an alternate, sometimes completely out-of-this-world, story. Below, check out the "Sex and the City" sequel that might have been:
"I think Big should be implicated in a huge scandal (such as [Bernie] Madoff). ... He of course is vindicated in the end, but Carrie questions the possibility of his deception with her (in the past) and others." Kelly Walker, Southfield, Mich.
