Oh good! Because we couldn't help but wonder…
The official announcement came out of The CW yesterday that the network has given the greenlight to three new series. The first - and possibly the most-hyped - project is the long-awaited reboot of the Sex and The City franchise. A prequel to the series most love and adore, the show will be called Carrie Diaries after the Candace Bushnell novel of the same name and follow a young Bradshaw as she navigates the start of the senior year of high school.
Readers of the book know that Carrie actually started out in a little New England town before heading to the Big Apple, but in the series, the character will already be a Manhattanite attending a prestigious New York school. Sound familiar? As it should, considering that helming the project is none other than Gossip Girl team Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage.
In addition to the SATC prequel, The CW has also picked up a modern remake of the popular 80s show Beauty and the Beast and an hour-long drama based on DC Comics' "Green Arrow" called Arrow. In other words, they are filling the voids left behind by Buffy and Smallville.
It all sounds good to us! Nothing we love more than some soapy, teenage drama shows! The more, the merrier!
