Lifetime's remake of 'Flowers' has yet to air, but the network announced it's already developing an adaptation of the second novel in 'Flowers' author V.C. Andrews' series.
Lifetimeâ€™s TV remake of the V.C. Andrews novel â€śFlowers in the Atticâ€ť hasnâ€™t even aired yet, but the network is already developing a sequel.
â€śFlowersâ€ť will air Jan. 18, and in the meantime, Lifetime is developing a TV version of the second book in Andrewsâ€™ series, which is titled â€śPetals on the Wind.â€ť â€śFlowersâ€ť was released in 1979 and â€śPetals" followed in 1980, with Andrews penning five books about the Dollanganger family altogether.
Kayla Alpert, who wrote the adaptation of â€śFlowers,â€ť said â€śPetalsâ€ť is â€śa very juicy and compelling revenge drama,â€ť according to Entertainment Weekly.
â€śMad Menâ€ť actress Kiernan Shipka portrays protagonist Cathy in Lifetimeâ€™s upcoming version of â€śFlowers,â€ť while actress Heather Graham portrays her mother and Ellen Burstyn plays her grandmother.
The novel was previously adapted into a film starring Kristy Swanson and Victoria Tennant in 1987. It was met with some controversy from fans because it left out the incestuous relationship between Cathy and her brother Chris, which is a large part of the book.
