Sex and the City
Sex and the City has won six Emmys and eight Golden Globes
The finale of Sex and the City drew the show's biggest audience since it began six years ago.

An estimated 10.6 million people in the US saw the sitcom's climax and final scene involving central character Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker).

This was also the largest audience for cable TV station HBO since The Sopranos drew 13.4 million people in 2002.

Among women aged 18-34, Sex and the City's last show beat the ratings of the US terrestrial networks.

British viewers will be able to see the show's conclusion on 19 March on Channel 4.

However, this may not be the last time they will see Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker), Samantha (Kim Cattrall), Miranda (Cynthia Nixon) and Charlotte (Kristin Davis).

HBO have announced that executive producer Michael Patrick King is writing a script for a Sex and the City feature film that would pick up where the show left off.

All four principal cast members are in talks to reprise their roles, according to a spokeswoman for the pay cable network.

HBO is seen in about 30 percent of American homes. In addition to Sex and the City and The Sopranos, its other recent successes include Six Feet Under and the miniseries Angels in America, which won five awards at this year's Golden Globes.
