There are plenty of notable French filmmakers that cinephiles will never tire of praising. Amongst the esteemed list, you can’t ignore Olivier Assayas.

He has helmed such intriguing works as Cold Water, Clouds of Sils Maria, Demonlover, Carlos, and Personal Shopper starring Kristen Stewart.

Despite numerous lauded efforts under his belt, many of his passionate fans will continue to hold up his 1996 film Irma Vep starring Maggie Cheung as his greatest achievement. It’s an iconic slice of nineties cinema and one that he himself has fortunately returned to courtesy of an HBO series of the same name.

The American-French comedy-drama initially premiered at the 2022 Cannes Film Festival in May but later reached general audiences on the small screen the following month.

Whether you’ve seen the movie or not, there are lots to enjoy here. But is Irma Vep season 2 confirmed?

Is Irma Vep renewed for season 2?

No, HBO has not renewed Irma Vep because the project was conceived and billed as a mini-series.

With that in mind, Olivier Assayas – who created, wrote and directed the show – was able to tell a complete story across all eight episodes. So, there’s absolutely no reason to expect a follow-up and, if you haven’t already, it’s definitely worth checking out the movie it’s based on.

The series concluded with episode 8, The Terrible Wedding, on Monday, July 25th 2022.

‘She knew why she had to do it’

Now that we know episode 8 brings everything to a definitive close, it’s worth contemplating the finale.

During a recent conversation with the AV Club, Alicia Vikander (who plays Mira) was asked whether she believes her character found what she was looking for by the end of the shoot:

“Yes. Doing Les Vampires is a journey of her figuring out that she needs to listen to her voice. I think that will give her peace moving forward. I think she knows that even if Les Vampires might not be the biggest hit, it was a very pivotal and meaningful project. She knew why she had to do it and why she needed to be part of making it.”

She added: “Also, Irma was a ghost that needed to pass through her during this time in her life. In a way, Irma made a few decisions for her that hopefully will make her life a bit easier and [make her] not feel not as lonely.”

There’s no looking back now. The series finale of #IrmaVep is streaming tonight on @hbomax. pic.twitter.com/mrI35PAmdp— HBO (@HBO) July 25, 2022
