Sharp Objects won’t be getting a followup. Deadline reports the HBO TV show will not return for a second season.
Based on the novel by Gillian Flynn, the limited series follows St. Louis newspaper reporter Camille Preaker (Amy Adams) as she returns to her small hometown to file a story about two missing girls. The cast also includes Patricia Clarkson, Chris Messina, Eliza Scanlen, Elizabeth Perkins, Matt Craven, Henry Czerny, Miguel Sandoval, Taylor John Smith, Sophia Lillis, and Madison Davenport.
Unlike Big Little Lies where all of the stars wanted to come back, Sharp Objects, it’s a very dark character, very dark material. Amy doesn’t want to live in this character again and I can’t blame her, it’s a lot to take on for an actress. So no plans for a second season. We are very happy with this living as a limited series.”
