Will there be a Sharp Objects Season 2? Does an open ending in Season 1 means there’s more to Camille Preaker story? Do we get to see an Amma Crellin “Women in White” spin-off TV Series?

WILL SHARP OBJECTS HAVE A SEASON 2? WHAT PLOT CAN IT EXPLORE?
Sharp Objects TV Series is based on the 2006 debut novel “Sharp Objects” by American author Gillian Flynn. The novel was adapted into the first season of HBO miniseries.
Though Sharp Object is yet to get green lit by the studio for developing its second season, but author/Executive Producer Gillian Flynn was excited with the response and had plans for either continuing the story or have an “Amma-Women in white” spin-off story arc for a possible second season. She revealed her intentions during an interview with the Hollywood Reporter.
“My characters always go on in my imagination. They have full working lives in there, and I keep in touch with all of them. I would never say no to another season. I know exactly what happens to them.” – Gillian Flynn
HBO also chose to deviate from the Novel, creating an open ending unlike the novels. In the novels Amma moved to Chicago with Camille and after some time Amma killed another girl “Lily Burke” from her school and pulled six of her teeth. She was sentenced behind bars up until her 18th birthday.
Camille explained why Amma killed all those girls:
“She demanded uncontested love and loyalty from Adora. No other little girls allowed. For the same reasons she murdered Lily Burke. Because, Amma suspected, I liked her better.”
But that’s not it, Camille also question herself:
“Was I good at caring for Amma because of kindness? Or did I like caring for Amma because I have Adora’s sickness?”
So, can the studio explore more into the story if Flynn creates a compelling script? Not that the numbers are not in the series favor. “Sharp Objects” was “The most watched HBO new series premiere”, upon its release in 2018.
Apart from lead actress “Amy Adams”, who didn’t want to reprise her role at the moment, much of the other pivotal characters in the series have expressed that they are on board for a second season, if it got a story to tell.
WHO WILL STAR IN HBO’S SHARP OBJECTS SEASON 2?
Gillian Flynn, apart from the interesting characters of wind gap, also has a story to tell about the origin of the “Women in white”- a possible spinoff, if the fans are up for it.
“I’ve always wanted to do a Woman in White spinoff, I actually sketched out a short story years ago when I was writing Sharp Objects”- Gillian Flynn
And what’s more intriguing is that, Flynn, the author & executive producer has hinted about the possibility, right after the series finale of season 1 was released in august 2018. She posted a cryptic tweet through her official Twitter handle (@TheGillianFlynn), where she wrote: “Huge gratefulness to everyone involved in SHARP OBJECTS. More soon. But for now…huge gratefulness.”
So if the concept piqued the executives’ interest, it’s possible that all the major characters may return for the second season.
