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.
Carrie Bradshaw is back for an all-new season of The Carrie Diaries and it looks like the fallout from Sebastian’s (Austin Butler) hookup with Maggie (Kate Findlay) in the first season finale will be playing a major part in season two.
In the season two promo below, not only do we see Sebastian and Maggie dealing with the fallout, we also get a first glimpse of Lindsay Gort in action as a young Samantha Jones doing everything we knew and loved about Samantha in Sex and the City.
What can we expect for this up-coming season? The Carrie Diaries director Norman Buckley let us in with some details that while the relationship between Sebastian and Carrie will be frosty to start off with, there will be a reunion between the two to look forward to! Until then though, we can expect Carrie to move onto a new love interest in the form of Adam Weaver (Chris Wood) – a ‘wunderkind playwright type’ in New York.
Along with new character Samantha Jones, another Sex and the City alum will be popping in, in the form of Stanford Blatch! While it was slyly announced during season one that Stanford and Bennett were roommates, it appears we’ll finally get to meet Carrie’s BGF (best gay friend) thanks to the evolving relationship between Walt and Bennett.
The Carrie Diaries season two begins Tuesday October 29th @ 8:30pm.
After what seemed an eternity and what was also one of the surprise renewals of the year, The Carrie Diaries is finally back for a second season, and we won’t have long to wait to see what Carrie and friends are up to!
It’s the summer of 1985, and, for the first time, 17-year-old Carrie Bradshaw (AnnaSophia Robb) can call Manhattan home. After her boyfriend Sebastian (Austin Butler) and best friend Maggie (Katie Findlay) betrayed her, Carrie is happy to accept the offer to spend the summer living in the downtown loft apartment of her Interview magazine boss Larissa (Freema Agyeman). But as summer turns to fall and Carrie heads into her senior year, she and her friends and family discover that letting go of old loves and embracing new dreams comes with some tough new realities but also incredible new opportunities.
This season will also bring us our first glimpse at a young Samantha Jones (Lindsay Gort) “Through a surprising connection, our young Carrie Bradshaw will meet one of the most important people in her life this season in a role made iconic by Kim Cattrall: Samantha Jones, a ballsy, beautiful and sexy young woman from the panhandle of Florida who has made her way — and already a name for herself — in the rock ’n’ roll scene of 1980s NYC.”
Season two premiere of The Carrie Diaries is set to begin Tuesday October 29th at 8.30pm on Fox8
