Finding Carter

Series Summary
Teenage Carter Stevens is confident, pretty and popular, traits that are usually handy in navigating high-school life. But nothing prepares her for the punch-to-the-gut news that comes out of an investigation into a party: Carter was abducted when she was 3, and the teen must return to her biological family, who thought she was gone forever. As Carter tries to forge a new life with her real mom and dad, a twin sister and a younger brother -- and adjust to a new school and town -- she vows to protect the single mother who raised her and is now sought by police.

  • There are some predictable relationship issues that are introduced between a few characters that are more than a little groan-worthy in how cliche they are. Those few issues aside, Finding Carter hits the ground running with an extremely compelling pilot. show more

  • The pilot's intriguing and the twentysomething Prescott's a believable enough TV teen (and a twin in real life). It's too soon to say if Finding Carter is the show girls raised on "Gilmore" have been waiting for, but it represents an encouraging departure for the "Teen Mom" network. show more

  • Much like the shows on ABC Family, Finding Carter has a muted palette, and is full of double crosses, shifting sympathies and warring dualities.... Carter has friends, but they’re mostly “Breakfast Club” archetypes. The one exception is Ofe (Jesse Carere), the rare sui generis sidekick on a teen show. show more
