If you’re a S&TC fan like me, you might agree that you can never really get enough of Carrie, Miranda, Samantha, & Charlotte –& Mr. Big of course. I own the entire series on DVD, I watched the midnight showing of both movies on the night they came out, & ever since the E! network picked up the show, I over indulge in re-runs whenever I can.
Now, the CW has officially announced that they are working on The Carrie Diaries a prequel series based on the novels by Candace Bushnell. In the series, we’re supposed to go back in time to the 1980’s when Carrie was just a senior in high school –before she ever walked the streets of Manhattan in her Jimmy Choo’s. Exciting!
Rumor has it that Gossip Girl’s producers, Josh Schwarts & Stephanie Savage are taking on the project along with original S&TC writer Amy B. Harris, so at least we know it will be just as entertaining. The series won’t include any Miranda or Charlotte but we will get a glimpse of what Samantha Jones was like 20 years ago. I can only imagine!
So does this mean no more xoxo Gossip Girl?! Maybe! But it would be a perfect segway for Blake Lively to transform in to a young Carrie Bradshaw. Hmmm. What do you think?!
