Lovecraft Country may still see a second season. Casey Bloys, the content chief for HBO and HBO+, is hopeful that showrunner Misha Green will be able to come up with a story to tell in a second season to continue to the supernatural horror drama.
The 10-episode first season premiered in August 2020, and the cast features Jurnee Smollett, Jonathan Majors, Aunjanue Ellis, Abbey Lee, Jada Harris, Wunmi Mosaku, and Michael Kenneth Williams. The series follows a trio as they travel the country searching for one of the character’s father, meeting racism and monsters along the way.
The first season of Lovecraft Country was based on a book by Matt Ruff. A second season would be based on entirely new content. Bloys said the following about a possible second season for the HBO series, per Deadline:
“Misha is working with a small team of writers and they’re coming up with a take. She had a book to go on in the first season, she and the writers wanted to go off and take some time to go out and figure out without a book with these characters, what’s the journey we want to go on. We all want to be sure she’s got a story to tell. That’s where she is right now, working on those ideas. I’m very hopeful, as is Mischa, so we’re giving them the time to work.”
