‘Flowers in the Attic’ Sequel Coming to Lifetime


‘Flowers in the Attic’ Sequel Coming to Lifetime


Lifetime’s made for TV movie ‘Flowers in the Attic’ hasn’t even premiered and the network is already prepping its sequel.

Announced today at the Television Critics Association (TCA) winter press tour, Rob Sharenow, executive vp and general manager of Lifetime, revealed ‘Petals on the Wind’ will soon appear on the small screen.

The sequel’s script is already being written by screenwriter Kayla Alpert. She revealed that the story takes place about 10 years after ‘Flowers’ and that, “It is a very, juicy compelling revenge drama.”

As for ‘Flowers in the Attic,’ it tells the story of the four Dollanganger siblings. After their father suddenly dies, their mother convinces her children to hide in their wealthy grandparents’ attic, while she attempts to reclaim the family fortune. The mother soon takes a lover, resulting in the children “comforting” one another.

Based on the controversial best-selling 1979 novel by V.C. Andrews, Lifetime’s adaptation stars Heather Graham, as Corrine, Oscar-winner Ellen Burstyn, as Olivia, Kiernan Shipka, as Cathy, Mason Dye, as Christopher, and Dylan Bruce, as Bart.

These aren’t the only Dollanganger series (‘There Be Thorns,’ ‘Seeds of Yesterday,’ ‘Garden of Shadows’), so will Lifetime continue with adapting these follow-up novels for TV? Alpert says that’s completely up to Lifetime.

You can check out the latest trailer for ‘Flowers in the Attic’ below, and don’t miss its debut Saturday, Jan. 18 on Lifetime.

This was an excellent book. I read it maybe 20 years ago. I think I read the 1st sequel "Let there be Thorns", but can't remember what happened. If the movie is half as good as the book, it will be a hit!
