It looks like HBO’s Sharp Objects could join the ranks of one-and-done miniseries that return for second seasons.
The HBO limited series adapted from Gillian Flynn’s novel might be returning for another season according to showrunner Marti Noxon.
During a keynote address at SXSW’s film conference, Noxon talked about the apparently close-ended series and said, “Maybe there will be a sequel and we’ll get to find out more about Adora and Camille’s sister.” She added, “Gillian and I have some thoughts on it.”
Back in August 2018, she spoke with the Hollywood Reporter saying that a second season would be technically hard to pull off.
“It’s off the table in terms of, people are going on to their next projects, and it was a pretty hard A-team to assemble. It’s not hard to imagine from a story standpoint, because obviously, we love these characters, but from a technical standpoint it seems like a long shot.”
Should the series morph into an ongoing project, it will join the no longer limited series including, Big Little Lies, The End of the F***ing World and13 Reasons Why.
