What does Joe Hill think of NOS4A2 season 2?
Jami O’Brien had the idea to take a spin on a book by Joe Hill in a series format that covers the plot of Hill’s book, NOS4A2. According to the laureated author, the first season of the book includes a portion of the book.
For production & help writing the script, O’Brien regularly consults with Hill, with him noticing that the female screenwriter had seen the evolution of the story arcs she was developing when writing NOS4A2 season one. In that sense, Hill thinks that the story that Jami O’Brien tells in NOS4A2 can be a couple of plots that could fit into full seasons for a show like the one we are referencing. Joe Hill thinks that the series NOS4A2 can tell some aspects of his book but not the whole story.
