THE CARRIE DIARIES: Amy B. Harris Teases ‘This is the Time’

January 24, 2014 by  

It’s prom night for THE CARRIE DIARIES, and as you’d expect, it’s a very important time for Carrie Bradshaw and her friends.

“The episode is about traditions and rights of passages, and prom, obviously, for so many kids is that,” THE CARRIE DIARIES boss Amy B. Harris shared on the set of the hour, “This is the Time.” “Last year, [we didn’t go big] because I wanted this senior prom to be the one. So last year was the prom that didn’t happen: Carrie and Sebastian broke up; Maggie outed Walt. Just small little stories of normal prom mayhem.”

“I knew I wanted — although some of them are dating and in relationships — I knew I wanted [this episode] to be our foursome at prom,” she continued. “Sort of how we first met them, supporting each other in the pilot, this moment is about the four of them; it’s not about their dates or their love lives. So, it was fun to celebrate that.”

And, yes, the prom experience will be about just the original foursome — which means Walt won’t be there.

“He isn’t at prom, but why he isn’t [there] is coming soon to a television near you,” Harris teased. “There’s a very specific reason why he’s not here.”


As the original foursome celebrate their prom, the partying will be contained to the official school-sanctioned event…but when your prom is being held at the Waldorf, would you really want to go off-site?

“This is really about the core friendships,” Harris said. “We talked a lot about whether we should play the afterparties, and we sort of had this fun idea that for a variety of reasons, they have a surplus of money for the prom. Donna is doing some car washes to help out, so they end up going all out and doing it at the Waldorf versus where they normally had it. So this is the moment we really wanted to celebrate.”

THE CARRIE DIARIES airs Fridays at 8 PM on The CW.
