The Carrie Diaries: Cancelled, No Season Three

Carrie Diaries season twoIt’s time to say goodbye to Carrie Bradshaw again. The Carrie Diaries has been cancelled by The CW after two seasons and 26 episodes.

The Carrie Diaries follows the experiences of young Carrie Bradshaw (AnnaSophia Robb) as she grows into the New York writer we know from Sex and the City. Others in the cast include Lindsey Gort, Austin Butler, Katie Findlay, Brendan Dooling, Ellen Wong, Freema Agyeman, Stefania Owen, Matt Letscher, and Chloe Bridges.

The series debuted early last year to a 0.6 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 1.61 million viewers. The ratings went up and down over the course of the season and the show could have easily been cancelled but The CW execs decided to stick with it.

Unfortunately, the second season premiere drew just half of the viewership of the series debut some 10 months earlier. Year-to-year, Carrie Diaries dropped nearly 30% in the ratings. While expectations on Friday nights are lower, it seems viewership was just too low to justify the network ordering a third season.

The season (now series) finale aired on January 31st.

What do you think? Are you sorry to hear that The Carrie Diaries has been cancelled? Would you have renewed it for a third season?

Please bring back the Carrie Diaries! It is one of my favorite shows. It has great actress and actors. It is a wonderful show. I think a different network should pick it up. I am really bummed that the CW canceled it!

It’s an amazing series. Watch something so pure in this nowadays is such a good feeling.
I love it. So sad it’s over. No fight

How highly unfortunate. This is the time for another network to SNATCH IT UP. “Someone” does not realize that they are missing a generation that could bring up to speed , an oppoportunity to convey exactly what “Sex and the City” was rooted to. Beyond Carrie’s twenties, which somewhat molded here to whom she evolved to…
This cast/story has SO much potential…SOMEONE PLEASE SNATCH THIS ONE UP QICK! Make the CW sorry for canceling.
PS. I would. However, I’ve got a lot on my plate at the present time.
