Kinda makes me wonder what is going to happen to The Carrie Diaries.
Star Katie Finlay has been cast in the ABC pilot How to Get Away with Murder. The pilot also stars Viola Davis.
The sexy, suspense-driven legal thriller centers on ambitious law students and their brilliant and mysterious criminal defense professor (Davis) who become entangled in a murder plot that could rock their entire university and change the course of their lives. Findlay will play Rebecca, the edgy, pierced neighbor to struggling law student Wes Gibbins (Alfred Enoch), who become entangled in the murder saga that shakes their university.
Deadline reports that the casting is second to her role on The Carrie Diaries, which has not yet been picked up for a third season.

The season finale of The Carrie Diaries hits next Friday. I refuse to say series finale, because I haven’t given up hope.
Watching the promo for next week – I have some questions I am going to need answered.
1) Has Carrie lost her damn mind?
2) When did Dorrit start to develop a nice streak and want to hug her sister?
3) Has Carrie lost her damn mind?
Guys- the synopsis gives me no answers. NO ANSWERS!
A BUMP IN THE ROAD — Things grow increasingly tense between Carrie (AnnaSophia Robb) and Tom (Matt Letscher). When Larissa (Freema Agyeman) drops an unexpected bomb on Carrie, Sebastian (Austin Butler) decides he, too, needs to come clean about something. Maggie (Katie Findlay) turns to Walt (Brendan Dooling) when she thinks Pete (guest star Claybourne Elder) is cheating on her, but gets the surprise of her life. Mouse (Ellen Wong) and West (guest star RJ Brown) find themselves in a sticky situation. Elsewhere, Samantha considers leaving the city, and Larissa’s wedding to Harlan (guest star Scott Cohen) is out of this world. Stefania Owen, Brendan Dooling, and Chloe Bridges also star. Andrew McCarthy directed the episode written by Amy B. Harris (#213).
Will you be watching? Do you want ‘The Carrie Diaries’ to be renewed?

Guys – if ‘The Carrie Diaries’ doesn’t get renewed, I will cry. I love this show! I need to know what happens with Walt and I need to slap the crap out of Sebastian for being so stupid all the time.

The Carrie Diaries returns tonight and Give Me My Remote spoke with the Amy B. Harris about the show and what is to come next.
Let me say that I love this show and the way they are tackling issues head on.
THE CARRIE DIARIES tackled the AIDS epidemic in a really upfront way. Was there any hesitation from the network or studio about what you were or weren’t allowed to do?
Amy B. Harris: They gave us free reign to really portray the experience the ways we wanted to do it. The writers of the episode, Amy [Rardin] and Jessica — Jessica O’Toole, her uncle that she was unbelievably close to died of AIDS — so I knew this was an episode I wanted them to write. We did a ton of research, we read books about the time period, [Jessica] went back through journals she had been writing in when her uncle was dying, and we had the actors read the books we had read. We wanted to go after it in as real a way as possible, and really explore what that would mean, when at the time, it was a death sentence.
We as writers discussed whether we wanted one of or both of [Walt and Bennet] to be [HIV-]positive and we decided that wasn’t the story we were looking to explore for now — that doesn’t mean season 3 won’t have its own changes. It was really just a discussion within the writers room of what we wanted to say.
For me, to have that open Walt’s eyes to the realization that to be in love with someone [who was the same sex] meant, in 1986, [you'd] be giving up so much more. It’d be like giving up the idea of having a family and having a marriage, and all of those traditional trappings that, I think, Walt still hasn’t given up on.
