Guide to Netflix: The Carrie Diaries

Taking place in 1984, “The Carrie Diaries” is the story of 17 year old Carrie Bradshaw falling in love with Manhattan. Based off of the novel written by Candice Bushnell, the series is a prequel to the beloved “Sex and The City”, although viewers do not need to see “Sex in the City” to be able to follow it. Developed by Amy B. Harris and airing on The CW in 2012, Season one of the light hearted drama can be found on Netflix, while season two is currently airing. The pilot starts off by introducing viewers to Carrie's hectic home life on her first day of junior year. Her father, Tom, is now a single dad raising Carrie and her rebellious sister, Dorritt, after their mother recently passed away. School was difficult for Carrie with all the pitiful looks she was receiving, but she had three friends to rely on for support. Her friends West, Mouse, and Maggie all have their own side stories during the series, as well. But it starts off first with Carrie, AnnaSophia Robb, taking an internship at a law firm in the city; leading her away from her small suburban Connecticut town, her family, and her first love, Sebastian Kydd, played by Austin Butler.
