Will there be another Summer of Scam on Netflix?

For the unversed, the Summer of Scam term was coined to mark the summer of 2018 filled with con sagas, especially that of fake German heiress Anna Delvey. Inventing Anna, the latest Netflix original, which premiered on February 11, tells the story of scammer Anna Delvey (real name Anna Sorokin) and is one of the streamer’s most anticipated releases of the year.

Created by Shonda Rhimes, the show is based on the New York magazine article written by Jessica Pressler, sees Anna portrayed by Ozark‘s two times Emmy winner Julia Garner, and has been making headlines even before the premiere on February 11. Some of Rhimes’ most popular TV shows of the last decade include Grey’s Anatomy, Private Practice, Scandal, How to Get Away With Murder, Station 19 and Bridgerton, among others. But, Inventing Anna is actually the first show she’s served as a creator since 2012’s Scandal.

If you have already binge-watched the entire season one of Inventing Anna, you’d be wondering about a possible season 2 along with so many facts vs. fiction questions. Let’s dive into it!!

Here’s everything you need to know about Inventing Anna Season 2:

Will there be Inventing Anna Season 2?

Given that Inventing Anna is a limited series, it’s highly unlikely to get a season two. However, considering the show’s success, the streaming giant may return with a few more episodes to tell the story of Anna’s prison time. Anna spent nearly four years in prison before being released in 2019. It might be interesting to keep this story going by doing a second season about her life behind bars or her life after jail.

“The investigative journalism we see on TV is completely true — except for the parts that are completely made up,” reads the Netflix official explainer of the show. The introduction to every episode reads the same. Vivian Kent’s character is a stand-in for real-life journalist Jessica Pressler, who wrote the expose for New York Magazine’s The Cut. The real-life Pressler even owns one black-and-white wool coat similar to what Kent wears on the show.

In the final moments of Inventing Season 1, Anna (Julia Garner) became an internet sensation with her fashion choices when appearing in court, thanks to her Instagram account dedicated to her, AnnaDelveyCourtLooks.

After the press began to notice Anna’s fashionable courtroom outfits, Sorokin’s lawyer, Todd Spodek, stated that he had hired a stylist to help her. Anastasia Walker was the stylist recruited, and yes, there was a time when Anna refused to come until she was appropriately dressed, which upset the judge.

Anna was released from prison on February 11, 2021, after which she was taken into custody by ICE, barely two years after her imprisonment for overstaying her visa. She even agreed to allow her life rights to be used in Inventing Anna and other shows such as 20/20 and 60 Minutes in Australia to discuss her conviction. 

All of the eyebrow-raising things in the show are pretty true-to-life (exceptions included).
