Kim Cattrall has urged Sex and the City to "move on" from the beloved TV series following the cancellation of a third movie.

The last two weeks have been filled with shady comments from all sides following Sarah Jessica Parker's announcement that a third Sex and the City movie had been shelved at the last minute.

Tabloids initially blamed Cattrall for her allegedly outrageous demands, but she fired back by claiming that she'd rejected the offer of a sequel a year ago and referred to the reaction to her decision as "toxic".

Fans are understandably upset by the in-fighting from the cast, with a fan questioning Cattrall on Twitter about why she's claimed to be too old to play her sexed up character Samantha Jones at age 61.

"I've played 'SAM' for 20 years. Am moving on & so should you," she responded, adding a handy plug: "Try #SensitiveSkin my show on @Netflix."

Earlier in the week, it was reported that Cattrall threw co-star Sarah Jessica Parker under the bus during an interview with Piers Morgan about the decision to scrap Sex and the City 3.

"Now at this very moment it's quite extraordinary to get any kind of negative press about something that I've been saying for almost a year of 'no', that I'm demanding or a diva," she said.

"And this is really where I take to task the people from Sex and the City and specifically Sarah Jessica Parker in that I think she could have been nicer."

Later, Willie Garson - who played Carrie Bradshaw's BFF Stanford Blatch - took SJ's side in real life too by tweeting: "Dear fans, because I'm 'toxic', I'm going to negotiate a contract for 6 months, not come to terms, then say I never wanted to do it anyway."

We're going to need about a dozen more Cosmos to make it through this in-fighting...
