Will There Be a Season 2 of Inventing Anna?


If you’ve finished the bumbling finale of Inventing Anna and stared into the eyes of “fake German heiress” Anna Delvey herself (a.k.a Julia Garner), perhaps such an experience rattled you enough to wonder, Where is this all going? Does Anna get her comeuppance? Should I invest in a pair of Céline glasses?

Not all such questions can be answered by yours truly, sadly, but there are a few other research routes you could take. You could read what the real-life Anna Sorokin is up to these days, but perhaps you’re more inclined to ponder whether Garner’s fictionalized Delvey will make a screen-side comeback. Shonda Rhimes’s newest Netflix hit, Inventing Anna, doesn’t document the entire story first reported by Jessica Pressler in New York Magazine, so it stands to reason there could be more forthcoming from the mega-streamer. Here’s what we know so far about any rumors of an Inventing Anna season 2.

Will there be an Inventing Anna season 2?

There seem to be no plans from the Shondaland team, nor the Netflix overlords, to move Inventing Anna forward. Netflix already reportedly paid the real-life Sorokin $320,000 to adapt her life story, and given that the show is billed as a limited series, that typically means no sophomore season will follow.

That said, Sorokin/Delvey’s life is still very much happening, so if her long con continues, there’s room for more story. There’s precedent for limited series to pull multi-season arcs: Big Little Lies, for instance, was only meant to have one season. But, for now, it seems Rhimes and her team want Inventing Anna‘s first chapter to stand on its own.

Well, where can I find my con artist content in the meantime?

There’s no dearth of scammer series coming out (or already streaming) in 2022. There’s Inventing Anna and the Netflix documentary The Tinder Swindler already available for your viewing pleasure. But there’s plenty more on the way, including WeCrashed, in which Jared Leto and Anne Hathaway play the masterminds behind the WeWork scandal (premiering on Apple TV+ on March 18); The Dropout, starring Amanda Seyfried as infamous Theranos founder Elizabeth Holmes (premiering on Hulu March 3); and Super Pumped: The Battle For Uber, with Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Uber CEO Travis Kalanick (premiering on Showtime Feb. 27).

Okay, but what about Anna? Will there be more Anna on TV?

The real-life Jessica Williams, whom you might recall as the Vanity Fair photo editor who befriends Anna in Inventing Anna, reportedly sold the rights to adapt her book, My Friend Anna: The True Story of a Fake Heiress, to HBO and Lena Dunham. There’s little word on when that particular project might reach fruition, but we can all be sure Inventing Anna won’t be the last time we’ll see the not-socialite in our streaming queues.
