Carrie Bradshaw is about to meet an outrageous lifelong friend.
“I’m really, really excited,” star AnnaSophia Robb told TVLine at The CW’s upfront presentation in New York on Thursday. ”I had to keep it a secret, but I think it’s going to be so much fun. I’m looking forward to seeing where that goes.”
The network previewed that we’ll see the two women, who grow up to delve deep into New York’s eligible bachelor (and in one case, bachelorette) pool, meet; turns out, Samantha is cousin to mean girl Donna LaDonna.
The role has not yet been cast.
Samantha is the ’80s-set prequel series’ second call-out to the stiletto-heeled original: Carrie‘s first season finale name-checked Stanford Blatch (who we know becomes Carrie’s gay bestie) as Bennet’s club-promoter roommate.
