HBO’s Watchmen series will not be returning for a second season.
In a report from USA Today, HBO programming chief Casey Bloys revealed that Watchmen showrunner Damon Lindelof isn’t interested in returning to do a second season of the critically-acclaimed show.
“It’s really in Damon’s thinking about what he wants to do. If there’s an idea that excited him about another season, another installment, maybe like a ‘Fargo,’ ‘True Detective’ (anthology) take on it, or if he wants to do something different altogether. We’re very proud of ‘Watchmen,’ but what I’m most interested in what Damon wants to do,” Bloys said.
And although Lindelof did give HBO his blessing to continue the series without him, Bloys said it’s unlikely.
“It would be hard to imagine doing it without Damon involved in some way,” he said.
Lindelof previously said that nothing was saved for a potential second season.
“I’ve consistently believed and still believe that these nine episodes are a complete story with a beginning, middle, and end. I have to acknowledge that not everyone’s going to see it that way, and I definitely don’t dispute any opinion that’s sort of like there should be more. I just don’t feel compelled to continue the story without a reason to do so,” he said. “That reason should be a creative reason, idea-driven, and I don’t have any ideas for subsequent seasons of Watchmen currently.”
