Sharp Objects HBO

News and Updates on the HBO TV Show

When is the Pilot for Sharp Objects on HBO?

The premiere date for Sharp Objects has not been announced. All we know is that it is likely to be in 2017. Since April 1st, 2016, there has been very little news as it relates to this eight episode TV drama. We would assume that it will air on Sunday nights similar to The Night Of which was an eight part crime drama that premiered on July 10, 2016.

It is important to note that Game of Thrones is going to air in the summer of 2017. This means Sharp Objects will likely come after that but before Westworld; once again, very similar to The Night Of. Westworld season 2 is not going to air until sometime in 2018 which gives HBO the fall and winter of 2017 to air another show. In our opinion, this is a perfect slot for an eight part series.

This would put the pilot date sometime in September or October. If Game of Thrones concludes around Labor Day we can expect the pilot of Sharp Objects in mid to late September or early October. Remember that all of this depends on the completion of filming.

      Tim, We still don’t know when filming starts. Remember, the pilot has been filmed and sold to HBO meaning they will fix it up and get it ready to roll. Filming will likely complete about three months before the show airs live. Expect filming to start around spring 2017.

      • Yeah, that sounds plausible. I also have the strong belief that HBO will promote Sharp Objects in the dimension of True Detective Season 1. Back then they published a first tease in June 2013 before finally starting the show in January 2014, as you may recall. So I almost fear that we will eventually have to wait until the first quarter of 2018. But I think they should take all the they need to make it the next HBO hit, since the great novel deserves the best possible execution.

  2. Just a small correction: Sharp Objects was ordered straight-to-series by HBO, which means they skipped the usual pilot process.

  3. It is now filming in Barnesville, GA.
