Why are Directors Skeptical about Sequels of Famous Films?
However, if one analyzes the decision of Neil Gaiman to shun any possibilities of a sequel to Caroline, then one can say that it was a thoughtful decision.

Therefore, Neil Gaiman and his decision to not come up with a sequel for Coraline can be justified with this logic.

However, the producers and writers of the show took on the tough decision and decided to produce five parts of the same show.

On top of this, Coraline was released back in 2009 which is more than 13 years back. The producers and scriptwriters have moved on to other scripts. Therefore, there is no possibility of Coraline releasing anytime soon (now confirmed by the author himself).
