We’re nearly half-way through season two of The Carrie Diaries and we’re completely hooked!
We just had to catch up with executive producer Amy B. Harris on what more we can expect from our favorite Castlebury residents.
“I think the reality of your life in high school is that you can never truly get away from people who hold parts of your heart, which is challenging because obviously they are in the same hallways as you,” Amy told us when asked about Carrie (AnnaSophia Robb) and Sebastian’s (Austin Butler) relationship. “But, I think for time being, these two are attempting to move on. And I think the question is, ‘How do you do that’? Can you stay friends with an ex? Can you help out with an ex? Do you have no contact? I think that’s a big piece of the puzzle for them.”
She added, “I don’t think he’s looking to fall in love or replace Carrie.” Aw! We don’t think so either!
As for our other favorite couple – Walt (Brendan Dooling) and Bennet (Jake Robinson) – Amy told JJJ that we’ll see Walt’s parents again! “They will come later in the season. Right now we’re just exploring what Walt’s sexuality means to him.”

Meanwhile, Maggie’s (Katie Findlay) journey has been a rough one so far, and Amy didn’t exactly reassure us. “I think in a way, the saddest thing for Maggie is that she is starting to take a turn in her life and make better choices, but it’s going to get worse before it gets better.” (Spoiler alert – she’s pregnant, as of the last episode!)
We also can’t forget about the introduction of Samantha (Lindsey Gort) this season and the fun dynamic she brings to the show. “What I love about Samantha is that she’s just who she is,” Amy said. “She’s like, ‘I had a tough life and I grew up in a trailer. I don’t have to play that game in order to be beautiful and sexy.’ But she’s vulnerable and hiding a lot of pain, I think. We’ll be exploring that this season.”
At the core, The Carrie Diaries is about friendships, which Amy touched on a little bit. “I think for me, I’m mostly writing the friendships that I hope I had in high school. I don’t think I’ve romanticized it. Relationships do come and go…it’s really about women who take care of each other, and friendship is so paramount in their lives. Carrie Bradshaw is someone who cares very deeply about her girlfriends.”
