Amy Adams Does Not Want to Do ‘Sharp Objects’ Season 2


It looks like our time with Camille Preaker will come to an end in just five more episodes. HBO has announced that Sharp Objects, a chilling thriller centered on the deaths of two girls in a quiet Midwestern town, won’t continue on past the finale, despite successful ratings. Although the novel by Gillian Flynn had no sequel, many thought the network might order a follow-up—just as it did with last summer’s hit adaptation of Big Little Lies.

But star Amy Adams, who plays Camille, apparently has no interest in taking out a time share in Wind Gap. “Unlike Big Little Lies where all of the stars wanted to come back, Sharp Objects, it’s a very dark character, very dark material,” HBO president of programming Casey Bloys told Deadline. “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.”

That’s an understandable position. Adams portrays a troubled reporter struggling with alcoholism, a grueling pattern of self harm, and unexplored childhood trauma—and that’s just what we know from the first three episodes.

Guess we’ll just have to get our fill of imposing Stepford Wives while we still can…until, perhaps, we meet Meryl Streep in BLL season 2.

Sharp Objects airs on Sundays at 9 P.M. EST on HBO.
