Could HBO’s one-and-done miniseries return for another season?
According to Sharp Objects’ show runner, Marti Noxon, a second season could in fact happen.
During a keynote address at SXSW’s film conference, Noxon talked about Sharp Objects 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 [Flynn] and I have some thoughts on it.”
Back in August 2018, Noxon did, however, tell The Hollywood Reporter 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.”
The HBO limited series was adapted from Flynn’s novel of the same name and executive produced by Noxon. The series starred Amy Adams and was directed by Jean-Marc Vallée.
