MTV had their presentation at the Television Critics Association Summer Press tour today, and for us that meant getting a chance to really learn a few things about the network’s upcoming slate of scripted programming.
For fans of “Finding Carter,” this meant learning that the show is going to return on Tuesday, October 6 at 10:00 p.m. Eastern time to start airing the first of its final episodes of season 2. Want to know more of what to expect? The official synopsis gives away some interesting teasers, including the fact that Carter is not going to be going down anywhere near the same road as many other characters on high-school shows:
“In the second half of season two, after the shocking revelation that Carter’s father had a secret son with Lori, Carter’s world is once again thrown into chaos. As Carter gets to know the mysterious brother she never knew she had, she also must figure out who she wants to be and where she really belongs. She ultimately decides to drop out of school to find her own path, and lies her way into a job as a bartender where she sees herself in a whole new light. She’ll even introduce her inner circle to a racy, underground party circuit. Her new, fast lifestyle is the perfect replacement for the tedium of high school, until it speeds out of her control… and she needs her family more than ever.”
Given everything that she has been through in her life, it makes some sense that Carter would look for some sort of solace in all of the wrong places (haven’t we all been there at one point in our lives?). Therefore, we find this story believable and relateable to many fans out there, but we do hope that she finds some sort of proper way to heal that does not involve endangering her own future permanently.
