10 Reasons 'The Carrie Diaries" Needs A Reboot ASAP

Last summer I began watching "The Carrie Diaries." As a long time "Sex and the City" fan, I did not expect to love this series as much as the original, but boy, was I wrong. I assume some of it had to do with the characters being closer in age to me, or the very attractive male love interests, but I was deeply saddened to hear it was only two seasons. I, like many other fans of the show, are still waiting for it to be picked back up again, and even though it seems unlikely, plenty of shows have been rebooted lately, and I think this should definitely be one of them.

1. That ending was not enough

I think we all knew Carrie wasn't going to end up with Sebastian because she moves onto other men in "Sex and the City," but that ending was not good enough. I need to know how little baby Carrie meets little baby Miranda and little baby Charlotte and how America's favorite brunch group came to be.

2. We need more Austin Butler in our lives

Or as my boyfriend calls him, "that sexy, sexy man."

3. We need to know what happened to Walt and Bennett

I loved everything about Walt's storyline and his path to self-discovery, and Bennett is always so supportive of Walt as he was figuring out who he really is. I really want to know what happens to them and if they will be together down the line.

4. I am dying to know how Samantha became the Samantha we know and love on "Sex and the City"

I feel like we barely got any background on Samantha, apart from her working in a bar and being Donna's cousin. I still have no idea how she went from being a bartender to flying all over the country drinking cosmos in the span of about 10 years.

5. We need more Larissa

I would kill to have Larissa's confidence. She has some of the best lines in the entire show and I need to have more of her in my life.

6. What happened to Dorrit?

She's never mentioned in "Sex and the City," I didn't even know Carrie had a sister before watching "The Carrie Diaries." Whatever happened to the baby sister who wore a bit too much eye makeup?

7. The wisdom that came out of this 16-year-old

"The Carrie Diaries" had a quote for every situation that a teenager could find themselves in, and handled every situation with grace, something a lot of teen shows are lacking now.

8. The drama

So many love interests in two short seasons, who knows how many a third would bring?

9. The 80s throwback

I mean, just look at the outfits.

10. The love

Besides all of the romance, there was so much friend-love in this show and family moments that you don't really see anymore on television.
