Sex and the City creator Darren Star just dropped a major bombshell about the series finale.
During a recent Kindle Singles interview, the 54-year-old writer said main character Carrie Bradshaw wouldn’t have ended up with Mr. Big if he’d had his way!
“I think the show ultimately betrayed what it was about, which was that women don’t ultimately find happiness from marriage,” he said. “Not that they can’t. But the show initially was going off script from the romantic comedies that had come before it. That’s what had made women so attached.”

“For me, in a way — I didn’t [write] those last episodes,” Darren continued. “At a certain point, you’ve got to let [the other writers] follow their vision.”
“At the end, it became a conventional romantic comedy,” he said, according to Us Weekly. “But unless you’re there to write every episode, you’re not going to get the ending you want.”
Carrie and Mr. Big were played by Sarah Jessica Parker and Chris Noth, respectively, on all six SATC seasons from 1998 until 2004.
