The miniseries I May Destroy You and We Are Who We Are, two HBO darlings, will not be continued by the broadcaster. Casey Bloys, the channel’s boss, in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, announced that limited productions will not be turned into continuous series.
As much as this has already happened with other HBO shows, like Big Little Lies and Perry Mason, Bloys said he does not envision a second season for either of these two series.
He adds that Luca Guadagnino, from We Are Who We Are, is busy with other projects, while Michaela Coel, from I May Destroy You, is considering future work. Therefore, there are no continuation plans for the productions.
