Hayden Panettiere won't have to go back to being a brunette (at least, not for this role). 

After drawing in 2.8 million viewers with Amanda Knox: Murder On Trial In Italy in 2011, it only makes sense that Lifetime would jump at the chance of shooting a sequel now that Amanda Knox is facing a retrial.

Right?! Nope, the network doesn't see it that way, anyway.

A source tells E! News that Lifetime has no plans on shooting a sequel to the TV movie and left it at that.

The flick, which debuted in February 2011 and starred Panettiere and Marcia Gay Harden, depicted the events surrounding Knox's trial for the murder of British exchange student Meredith Kercher.

Earlier today, it was announced that the Court of Cassation, Italy's final court of appeal, overturned the acquittals of both Knox and then-boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito, ordering her to stand trial again for the 2007 death of her roommate. 

"No matter what happens, my family and I will face this continuing legal battle as we always have, confident in the truth and with our heads held high in the face of wrongful accusations and unreasonable adversity," Knox said in a statement.
