HBO has cancelled Sharp Objects after one season.
Despite plans for a second season of the limited series, the cabler has opted not to extend the series beyond one season.
HBO president of programming Casey Bloys said, per Deadline:
“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-run series.”
