This Tuesday (Feb 11th) will see FOX8’s The Carrie Diaries season two finale air, and among all the questions that need answering, the biggest question is, will the show be back for a third season? The show, based off the popular Sex and The City, follows a young Carrie Bradshaw (AnnaSophia Robb) in the 1980’s, attending high school while trying to make her mark in Manhattan.
Where the first season focused on introducing Carrie, her sister Dorrit, father Tom and her friends and an emerging life in Manhattan working for Interview Magazine, the show’s second season offered up more mature themes including an AIDS scare, unwanted pregnancy, Carrie moving up at Interview magazine and introduced a young Samantha Jones (played to perfection by Lindsay Gort).
Season two felt more like the Sex and the City we knew yet still keeping issues and topics relevant to the younger audience that were watching.
Without giving too much away, the second season finale wraps up a lot of story-lines and characters leaving season three as a blank canvas for Carrie and her life in Manhattan allowing the show to bring in new characters and bring in Sex and the City characters Charlotte York and Miranda Hobbs, but with dwindling ratings in the US, there is talk Carrie may not be back for a third season (the fact we even got a second season still bewilders most).
The Carrie Diaries Season 2 finale airs Tuesday 8:30pm on FOX8
