Hulu’s teen drama “Looking for Alaska” is a runaway success. The reviews are good, John Green readers seem to be happy and the show is getting plenty of buzz on social media. However, that doesn’t mean “Looking for Alaska” will return for Season 2.

While most shows have to wait for renewal or cancellation news, that doesn’t seem to be the case here. Readers of the John Green novel know that the eight episodes covered the entire book, but that doesn’t always mean a TV show is over. “The Handmaid’s Tale” and “Big Little Lies” went well beyond the source material, but will “Looking for Alaska” follow their lead?

It doesn’t seem likely. Josh Schwartz, who was a showrunner along with Stephanie Savage, told Twitter followers that they shouldn’t be waiting for renewal or cancellation news. He intended to adapt just the novel, and the writers obviously accomplished their goal. He gave a clear "No" when asked about a Season 2.

Though eight episodes may not seem very long, it took an extremely long time for “Looking For Alaska” to be on screen. Schwartz first read “Looking For Alaska” before it was even published and had written a film adaptation. However, the project was shelved until Green’s “The Fault In Our Stars” found success on the big screen nearly a decade later, earning over $300 million at the worldwide box office. After some false starts with other writers and directors, the “Looking For Alaska” movie was shelved again.

In spring 2018, Hulu announced that the project was back in Schwartz’s hands, this time in the form of an eight-episode limited series. It’s finally on screen, and it looks like that’s where the “Looking for Alaska” adaptation saga finally comes to an end.

Of course, that’s not the end of John Green book adaptations. Netflix will release the film “Let It Snow,” which Green co-authored with Maureen Johnson and Lauren Myracle, on Nov. 8. Green’s latest novel, “Turtles All the Way Down,” is set to be adapted by Fox 2000 and directed by Hannah Marks.

“An Abundance of Katherines” and “Will Grayson, Will Grayson” seem to be Green’s only novels that don’t have an adaptation currently available or in development.
