The Carrie Diaries: Season Two Renewal From The CW

Carrie Diaries season twoYoung Carrie Bradshaw will be back next season. It could have been cancelled but The CW has decided to renew The Carrie Diaries for a second season.

A prequel to Sex and the City, the show started off with mediocre ratings (by CW standards) and they got worse as the season progressed. The second-to-last episode of the season saw Carrie Diaries hit a new demo low — a 0.3 rating with 870,000 viewers.

The 13 episode season ended up averaging a 0.5 rating in the 18-49 demographic with just 1.14 million total viewers.

Still, The CW doesn’t derive as large a percentage of its revenue from on-air commercial time as the other networks. Streaming provides a significant amount of money for The CW which has a five-year, $75 million deal with Hulu. They also have a four-year $1 billion dollar deal with Netflix which began in 2011.

The Carrie Diaries, like fellow low-rated series Nikita, is very popular with online viewers.

There’s no word yet on how many episodes The CW will order for season two.

What do you think? Are you glad that The Carrie Diaries has been renewed for a second season? Do you think they’ll order 13 or 22 episodes?

    I love the Carrie Diaries and have got a lot of my friends liking it as well. I have a two year old so most days I have to watch it on-line the following day while she is sleeping. I would be so mad if they left the show off like they did, I want to see how Carrie becomes the amazing Carrie Bradshaw we all love. :)

    I am glad they renewed this. It is a “happy” show filled with hope and wonder. While it is based off Sex and The City, it has more of a Wonder Years feel to it.

    Terrible show, honestly don’t know how they can stretch it out for another season, it’s not even true or comparable to it’s source material (not that I like that much show either), it should just be called “generic teen girl show”
