There are not many shows you could call an instant masterpiece, but that’s what Damon Lindelof’s Watchmen was.
The acclaimed show was originally billed as a limited series, but with the buzz and success, it had people talking about a potential second season. Unfortunately, it’s bad news I’m afraid as it doesn’t look like the show will be returning.
HBO’s programming chief Casey Bloys spoke with USA Today about the possibility of continuing the series if Damon Lindelof was returning:
“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 instalment, 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.”
However, the Lost co-creator isn’t interested in a second season as he’s told the story he wants to tell and has no interest in a second season, though he’s “given my blessing” to HBO should it want to pursue a new instalment with another writer-producer.
Should HBO look for another producer? I believe they should leave the series where it is. I know there are few questions fans would want to be answered, but it’s better to leave these open to interpretation rather than someone else coming onboard and undoing all the work Lindelof did.
