Carrie Bradshaw is reminiscing about her early yrs in Manhattan in the latest episode of And Just Like That — which fully contradicts the franchise’s Carrie Diaries spinoff.
In the Thursday, August 17, episode, Aidan Shaw (John Corbett) is surprised that Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker) had never ever earlier frequented Coney Island regardless of dwelling in New York City for 35 several years.
“35 years? But you acquired to New York when you had been 21? Wait around a next, 21 as well as 35 — maintain up, are you old?” Aidan quipped when walking down the pier with Carrie.
In accordance to Carrie and Aidan, the 56-12 months-previous connection creator first arrived in the Massive Apple in her early 20s. Though their math checks out, it entirely erases the premise of The Carrie Diaries, the short-lived CW spinoff that adopted a young Carrie’s to start with decades in the city. (The Carrie Diaries was encouraged by the novel of the identical title, which was published by Sexual intercourse and the Town scribe Candace Bushnell and released in 2011.)
In The Carrie Diaries’ pilot episode, which aired in 2013, 16-year-aged Carrie (AnnaSophia Robb) approved an internship at a legislation organization in the city to assist distract her from the overpowering grief following her mother’s demise. Carrie — who lived in Castlebury, Connecticut, with father Tom (Matt Letscher) and sister Dorit (Stefania LaVie Owen) — would commute into the city through the train. Through her initially 7 days, she meets Interview magazine editor Larissa (Freema Agyeman), who is wowed by her custom made “Carrie” purse and offers her an internship of her possess.
Period 2 of The Carrie Diaries permitted Carrie to even more prosper in the major city, living there comprehensive-time for the summertime even though continuing to do the job at Job interview. The Carrie Diaries was eventually canceled in 2014.
While The Carrie Diaries garnered a crowd of devoted admirers, Parker, now 58, was not among the them.
“You know, I assume it’s a person of people assessments of your generosity,” the Hocus Pocus star informed Net-a-Porter’s The Edit in a March 2013 profile when questioned about the spinoff. “[AnnaSophia Robb] is a beautiful girl and I want her to come to feel excellent about it, but it is … odd.”
Even though Parker was “not sure” about the prequel, Robb, now 29, was thrilled about landing the part of younger Carrie.
“I understood it was essentially a truly robust tale,” she beforehand gushed to Teen Vogue just one month previously in February 2013. “It had a ton of coronary heart and integrity, and Carrie would seem like a character that I can grow with.”
Robb ongoing at the time: “They advised me that I acquired the component since I did a minimal chicken dance at the close of my audition immediately after they questioned me about my prom. I’ve got rhythm, but not the moves to go with it, and I guess they favored that I wasn’t frightened to be goofy.”
Thursday’s episode is not the first time that Sexual intercourse and the Town has ignored The Carrie Diaries’ tale traces. The OG sequence as soon as outlined that Carrie’s father experienced left her household rising up, which is not the scenario in The Carrie Diaries as Tom is a solitary parent for the duration of the demonstrate. The second characteristic-size motion picture also reinvented how Carrie satisfied her besties. Carrie described that she fulfilled Charlotte (Kristin Davis), Miranda (Cynthia Nixon) and Samantha (Kim Cattrall) in that order, which deviates from the CW sequence. The Carrie Diaries season 2 introduced young Samantha (Lindsay Gort) long in advance of Charlotte and Miranda arrived on the scene. (Per the Carrie Diaries publications, Carrie satisfied new NYC arrival Charlotte previous on the teach when she was departing NYC after her summer months adventure.)
