Get ready to meet the young Samantha Jones!
When The Carrie Diaries returns for its second season, Carrie Bradshaw (AnnaSophia Robb) is spending her summer in the city, where she'll meet future bestie Samantha Jones (Lindsey Gort), the cousin of her high school nemesis Donna LaDonna (Chloe Bridges).

Carrie Bradshaw finally had the perfect life — that is, as long as she was able to keep her suburban teenager/glamorous career gal personas separate. But during Monday's episode of The Carrie Diaries, her two worlds collided and the lies came to an end.

Long before she met her Prince Charming in a man named Mr. Big, Carrie Bradshaw's adolescent life was still something of a swoon-inducing Cinderella story. That's the first impression from the CW's new The Carrie Diaries (8/7c, repeated an hour later), a likeably schmaltzy "prequel" to Sex and the City that finds the CW hewing closely to the ABC Family model that has lately stolen much of the channel's young-adult thunder.
The CW has ordered five new series, including the hotly anticipated Sex and the City prequel and the Green Arrow origins story, TVGuide.com has confirmed.
Based on the novel by Candace Bushnell, The Carrie Diaries features a younger Carrie Bradshaw (AnnaSophia Robb) as she comes of age in the '80s, asking her first questions about love, sex, friendship and family while exploring the worlds of high school and Manhattan. Bushnell will executive-produce alongside Gossip Girl duo Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage, Len Goldstein and Sex and the City writer Amy Harris. Stefania Owen, Austin Butler, Matt Letscher, Brendan Dooling, Freema Agyeman, Katie Findlay, Chloe Bridges and Ellen Wong will also star.
