Lifetime aired their Flowers in the Attic followup Petals on the Wind last night, in all its steamy, fiery melodramatic glory. Is there more where that came from? It would appear so.

Those who read V.C. Andrews’ Flowers in the Attic at some point in the last few decades are likely looking forward to this weekend when Lifetime airs the small screen adaptation of the novel about four kids locked away for years by their own mother. It’s a dark, twisted and emotional story involving abuse, neglect and more incest than you might expect from your typical work of fiction.
A little more than a week ahead of the debut of Lifetime’s TV movie adaptation of Flowers in the Attic comes word that the network is developing a sequel, which will be based on V.C. Andrews’ follow-up novel Petals on the Wind. But from what the screenwriter said about the project, it sounds like they’ve already set at least one major change to the story.
Coming to Lifetime is a matter of weeks is a new adaptation of V.C. Andrews’ novel Flowers in the Attic.

Earlier today we got our first look of Lifetime’s adaptation of V.C. Andrews’ Flowers in the Attic in the form of a still from the TV movie, which will debut on the cable channel in January. This evening Lifetime has posted a trailer, which gives us a few glimpses of this dark and incestuous tale.

In addition to Graham, he joins previously cast Ellen Burstyn, Mason Dye and Kiernan Shipka.
After learning that Lifetime was planning on adapting V.C. Andrews' book Flowers in the Attic, we were left to wonder who would play the lead roles of Chris and Cathy, the two older siblings among a foursome of kids locked away in the attic of a mansion while their mother attempts to regain her inheritance.
