Amy B. Harris answers ‘The Carrie Diaries’ finale’s unanswered questions and talks about her visions for season two, in an all new interview! Keep reading for all the details.
Following The Carrie Diaries‘ big season finale on April 8, executive producer Amy B. Harris sat down for an interview and revealed who else from Sex and the City she plans to introduce ([Stanford’s] “not the only one”), what’s next for Carrie as she moves to NYC and what the chances are that The CW will green-light a second season.
Carrie & Sebastian: Will They Get Back Together?
At the close of season one, it was revealed that Sebastian and Maggie hooked up and betrayed Carrie. While cheating is traumatic, Amy says it’s not over between Sebastian and Carrie!
“I definitely see a lot more of them [in the future]. They’re not over. It’s a much more complicated thing but you don’t just turn off your feelings for someone, and that’s a very hard, sad truth for people. When you’re drawn to someone, even if they’re not good for you, you feel connected. In a lot of ways, Carrie and Sebastian are very good for each other,” Amy tells The Hollywood Reporter.
Moving To NYC: Who Will & Won’t Be Travelling To The Big Apple
Walt and Carrie already made a move to the Big Apple (albeit temporarily), and we’ll soon see more of Carrie’s friends flocking to the city.
“I don’t think you’ll see Maggie there much, but pretty much everybody else feels like there are incredibly logical ways to bring them into the city and I felt like Walt in particular would be someone who would want to start spending a lot of time in the city. That’s a world he will want to live in as well as Carrie. The goal for the second season is to build out the city for the other characters as well, but in organic ways.”
Walt & Bennet: Their Future Together
Are you a fan of Walt and Bennet like I am? Expect to see a lot more of them as a couple in the future!
“They have a ton of chemistry and I want to explore that. [Having the show set in the 80s], you can tell the story of will Walt feel safe and comfortable holding hands with him walking down the street if there’s other people around to the bigger story of the landscape of AIDS in the ’80s, as a part of being a gay man in Manhattan. I’m excited to really delve into all of that.”
Bridging The Gap Between ‘Sex and the City’ and ‘The Carrie Diaries’ In Season 2
We’re finally going to be meeting Carrie’s friends from Manhattan! Stanford’s name was already dropped in the season finale, and we’ll certainly be meeting him in season two, but Amy also says that he’s not “the only one.”
“I know exactly how I would like to introduce each of the characters into the show and [Stanford’s] not going to be the only one, that’s for sure. I wasn’t toying mentioning anybody [else]. I know what I want season two to look like and who I think is showing up, but I always thought that Bennett and Stanford were probably roommates and that’s how Carrie ends up meeting Stanford. I felt like that was a simple and fun way to give the audience a head’s up that we’re going to start meeting some of Carrie’s Manhattan peeps. There is more to come.”
Chances Of A Season 2 Renewal
“The good news is we’re No. 2 in streaming and I think in the world of The CW, they know that’s the future. I’ve got my fingers crossed. I’m feeling good!”
