Lifetime revealed that it is working on a sequel to “Flowers in the Attic,” announcing the followup before the TV movie airs Jan. 18, reports the Los Angeles Times’ Show Tracker.
The sequel will be based on the second book in the V.C. Andrews series, “Petals in the Wind.” Kayla Alpert, who adapted Andrews’ “Flowers in the Attic” for Lifetime, will write the sequel, which picks up a decade after “Flowers” ends.
"I will just say it is a very juicy, compelling revenge drama," Alpert said at the Television Critics Association press tour.
“Buzz for the newest adaptation (there was a 1987 film that’s available on Netflix) has been building since the project was greenlighted by Lifetime earlier this summer — as one might expect,” the story notes. “The preteen incest novel has amassed quite the following since its release in 1979, and has sold more than 40 million copies worldwide, Robert Sharenow, Lifetime’s executive vice president and general manager, noted ahead of the panel.”
