This article discusses whether there will be season 2 of the Netflix series Inventing Anna and its renewed or cancelled status.

Read the season 1 review.

Inventing Anna is the first show created and produced by Shonda Rhimes to air on Netflix. As some of you may know already, Inventing Anna is based on Anna Delvey and the widely known New York magazine article “How Anna Delvey Tricked New York’s Party People”. 

The trial that coincided with the article was heavily published in the media and so, it was inevitable that there would be a series about the case. But will Shonda Rhimes’s show be back for another season? 

Will there be a season 2 of the Netflix series Inventing Anna – renewed or cancelled status

Status: Cancelled/not renewed.

As Inventing Anna is a mini-series, there are no plans for there to be any more seasons. Like The Queen’s Gambit, Netflix enjoys gambling on one-off series, as it has proved to be a success so far. The mini-series, which has 9 episodes in total, takes the audience all the way to the end of her trial. Hence there is, arguably, very little else for the show to explore. 

Even if the second season of Inventing Anna happened, don’t expect Anna to have much involvement. She has gone on to say, “I can’t help but feel like an afterthought”. Although, even if the show proves to be a massive success on Netflix, instead of a second season, it may, instead, mean that the streaming site will create further Shonda Rhimes productions.

We’ll keep an eye on data and keep this article updated when there is news regarding the future of Inventing Anna. But based on what we already know, there may be very few updates, if any at all.

You can watch this series with a subscription to Netflix.
