Will there be a Season 2 of Paper Girls?
Amazon Prime Video recently announced that the series would not be picked up after only one season. The viewers who loved the show still have some hope left as, according to Deadline, Paper Girls comes from Amazon Studios and Legendary Television, in association with Plan B. According to sources, Legendary TV will be shopping the series, looking to tap into the popularity of series like Euphoria and Sex Lives of College Girl by offering another show with three-dimensional young female characters at the center.
Paper Girls, which did not break into Nielsen’s weekly streaming rankings, was among the shows whose launch may have been overshadowed by Prime Video’s tentpole LOTR: The Rings of Power and the massive marketing campaign that surrounded it. The series had managed to get a large fanbase who were eager to see more seasons in order to have a good concluding storyline that these beloved characters truly deserve still has a chance of being picked up by other major networks and expanding on this interesting series.
Paper Girls Season 2 Potential Release Date
As the show has not been picked up by any major network yet, the prospective premiere date has yet to be acknowledged, and the status is neither here nor there.
