TV show description:      
Based on the novels by Candace Bushnell, this TV series is set in 1984 and revolves around a 16-year-old Carrie Bradshaw (AnnaSophia Robb). Her mother passed away and since that time, Carrie’s younger sister Dorrit (Stefania Owen) has become more rebellious than ever. Their father, Tom (Matt Letscher), is overwhelmed with the responsibility of suddenly having to care for two teenage girls on his own.

Thankfully for Carrie, her friends -– geeky Mouse (Ellen Wong), snarky Maggie Landers (Katie Findlay), and sensitive Walt Reynolds (Brendan Dooling) -– make life bearable, but a suburban life in Connecticut isn’t doing much to take her mind off her troubles.

Even the arrival of a sexy new transfer student — Sebastian (Austin Butler) — only reminds Carrie that she spent the whole summer grieving over her loss, rather than moving on with life.

So, when Tom offers Carrie the chance to intern at a law firm in Manhattan, she leaps at the chance. Carrie’s eyes are opened wide at the glamour and grit of New York City. When she meets Larissa Loughton (Freema Agyeman), the style editor for Interview magazine, Carrie becomes inspired by the club culture and unique individuals that make up Larissa’s world.

Carrie’s friends and family may have a big place in her heart, but she’s fallen in love for the first time with the most important man in her life – Manhattan.

Series Finale:     
Episode #26 — “Run to You”
Things grow increasingly tense between Carrie and Tom. When Larissa drops an unexpected bomb on Carrie, Sebastian decides he, too, needs to come clean about something. Maggie turns to Walt when she thinks Pete (guest star Claybourne Elder) is cheating on her, but gets the surprise of her life. Mouse and West (guest star RJ Brown) find themselves in a sticky situation. Elsewhere, Samantha considers leaving the city, and Larissa’s wedding to Harlan (guest star Scott Cohen) is out of this world.
First aired: January 31, 2014.

    )': please DO NOT CANCEL!!!!!!!!! Even persons from TRINIDAD is in love with this show it will be heart breaking if you do …… the 2010’s are parallel to the 80’s which is super weird but very relatable in terms of genders preferences, FASHION, attitudes, love, schools ….just everything about The Carrie Diaries ..just wonderful it SHOULD BE CONTINUED!!!!!!!!! please don’t cancel :'( …
    The show is too inspirational in a weird way to teenagers …. I know adults may think its just about “Sex and the City” but its much more ….you see yourself reflected in characters …you see your friends reflected in characters….

    This is a great family friendly show with true to life coming of age experiences and growing up in a small community where everyone is known. There are good moral issues and relationship situations where the cast creates friendships and enemies and then renews the friendships. I like the show and the characters. I think it is a great show for pre teens or early teens. I think there are good situations which parents can use as teaching points to help children through tough situations in real life or maybe prevent some heartache if the discussion is handled properly. Good show. Parents should use tv as a tool rather than a babysitter.
