The HBO superhero series Watchmen was adapted into an up to date version of the graphic novel, of the same name, with a politically relevant storyline that dealt with race and the criminal justice system. The show starred Regina King, who played a masked cop in Tulsa, in the year 2019, where Robert Redford was the president.
The critically acclaimed HBO drama quickly won a loyal following and finished its nine-episode season in December. But sadly, if you are hoping for a season two. Show creator Damon Lindelof (Lost, The Leftovers) has decided not to pursue a second season.
Lindelof told USA TODAY that “he has told the story he wants to tell and has no interest in a second season, though he gives HBO his blessing should it want to pursue a second installment with another writer-producer.”
However, a second season looks to be unlikely to happen. In his interview with USA TODAY, HBO programming chief Casey Bloys told the magazine, “It would be hard to do it without Damon involved in some way.”
Sorry fans, it doesn’t look like there will be a resolution for the season-ending cliffhanger.
