Looks like we’ll never get to really find out what happens to Carrie Bradshaw in those years between high school and her column in The New York Starr as the CW network finally announced they have pulled the pin on the Sex and the City prequel series.
The series which debuted two years ago followed a young Carrie Bradshaw (played by AnnaSophia Robb) in her teen years, struggling to find a balance between home life, romance and her aspirations of a successful writing career in New York. The show never really reached the ratings highs the network had hoped for nor caught the interest of fans of the original series and most were genuinely surprised when the show was renewed for a second season.
The sad part is, the show was cancelled just as opportunities arose to really develop Carrie’s Manhattan back story with season two closing out with Carrie saying goodbye to home life in Connecticut to embark on a new life in New York.
Two other shows – The Tomorrow People and Star-Crossed have also suffered the same fate and will not return for a second season, though The 100, Hart of Dixie and Beauty and the Beast will return.
The CW’s full schedule including a complete list of cancellations, renewals and premiere shows will be announced next week.
The Carrie Diaries, The Tomorrow People and Star-Crossed all aired on FOX8 through Foxtel here in Australia.
