Watchmen Season 2 Probably Won’t Happen After Showrunner Damon Lindelof Exits

The series Watchmen by HBO seems to be a show of a season, because the creator Damon Lindelof says that he is not interested in make a second season. Based on the popular DC Comics series of the same name, Watchmen became an instant hit for HBO when it first released in October of last year. However, despite the praise, Lindelof believes that he has already told the story he intended to tell during the first season of the show, and is not is unwilling to take the reins for a possible season 2. Without Lindelof on board, the show is now essentially dead in the water, as HBO doesn't seem to want to go ahead with anyone as Lindelof.

According to HBO programming chief Casey Bloys, Lindelof "brilliantly took this graphic novel and kind of opened it up and created a whole new world." Bloys adds that the members of the network are very proud of Watchmen and what Lindelof was able to do with it, also suggesting that all the potential the series must achieve rests entirely on Damon Lindelof. With Lindelof running and HBO gone without the possibility of his involvement, it almost kills the series Watchmen dead. "It would be difficult to imagine doing [season 2] without Damon being involved in one way or another," says Bloys. itself as one of the most must-see television shows of 2019. The show follows on from the original comic book series, which takes place over three decades later. The story focuses particularly on racist violence in Tulsa, Oklahoma, resuming with a vicious attack on the local police department by a group of white supremacists. This results in new laws that allow the police to hide his identity with masks, including Angela Abar – also known as vigilante de rue Sister Night. Regina King, Don Johnson, Tim Blake Nelson, Jean Smart, Jeremy Irons and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II star.

Most of the critics also agree that Watchmen is a very high quality series. On Rotten Tomatoes, the first season of Watchmen managed to obtain an almost universal success with a score of 96% "Certified Fresh" on Rotten Tomatoes. The series has also received many prestigious nominations for many categories at different events. This includes victories for Regina King for best actress and Jean Smart for best supporting actress at the Critics' Choice Television Awards. The show is also one of the top 10 television programs of the year at the American Film Institute Awards.

However, all hope is not lost for a second season. Although not personally involved, Lindelof "gave [his] the blessing" to HBO to continue Watchmen season 2 with another writer-producer, suggesting that There would be no trouble feeling whatsoever. Of course, given the network's reluctance to further deepen the universe Watchmen without Lindelof on board, I would not hold my breath. Let's just enjoy the first (and probably the only) season for what it was. This news comes from USA Today.
