Watchmen fans have some bad news coming their way. It doesn’t look like the series will return for a second season. Damon Lindelof is not interested in pursuing it. This comes via USA Today, and it is a change of tune from what the man said last month following the wrap of the series.
At that time, he said he just needed the right idea to come to him. A month later, he is saying that he doesn’t want to do another season. He did give HBO his blessing to continue the series without him, but that won’t happen either.
Casey Bloys, HBO programming chief, said the following about continuing the series without its creator:
“It would be hard to imagine doing it without Damon involved in some way.”
Watchmen ended on a cliffhanger featuring a big change to Regina King’s characters. With this news, fans will be left to wonder what would have happened to her character next.
What do you think? Did you want more of Watchmen on HBO? Are you sad Damon Lindelof will not come back for season two?
