While a move to Friday nights isn’t going to help The Carrie Diaries, at least the Sex and the City prequel is getting a second season. Silver lining right? I thought I was alone in enjoying the show, but after asking Homorazzi.com readers their thoughts on a Season 2 renewal, I was surprised by the resounding support. After hearing producers’ plans for next season, I’m glad The CW gave it another shot.
In Season 1, we discovered how Carrie’s (AnnaSophia Robb) love for Manolo Blahniks and cosmopolitans began. Though we met her BFFs during her high school years, none of our favorites from the HBO series appeared. But that’s all about to change come Fall. On the season finale Standford Blatch’s name was dropped as Bennet’s club-promoter roommate. Maybe a young Standford is in our future? But one thing is certain… Charlotte, Samantha or Miranda is being introduced next year. Find out who and how below.
It’s none other than Samantha Jones played by Kim Cattrall on the HBO show. If producers follow the book series, then Cattrall will come via Carrie’s high school nemesis Donna LaDonna. Samantha and Donna are cousins. The network previewed that we’ll see the two women delve deep into New York’s eligible bachelor pool during Season 2.
I’m really, really excited,” star AnnaSophia Robb told TVLine.com at The CW’s upfront presentation in New York on Thursday. ”I had to keep it a secret, but I think it’s going to be so much fun. I’m looking forward to seeing where that goes.”
Are you excited to see a young Samantha Jones? Were you hoping for Charlotte or Miranda? Do you think a young Standford will be a hottie? Sound off below.
