The upcoming season kicks off during the summer of 1985 and finds Carrie living in the downtown loft of her Interview magazine boss, Larissa, following some serious heartbreak back at home. (Thanks a lot, Sebastian!) We assume it’s during these warm weather months in Manhattan that Carrie happens upon her soon-to-be BFF, who—as you’ll recall from the HBO series—is a few years older than the rest of the ladies, which means she could be a college student interning in the city, or even a recent graduate getting her footing in the high-pressure world of PR.
Little else is known about Samantha’s introduction (including which pretty young thing will be playing her), so stay tuned to Hollywood Crush for that news!
