The adaptation of superhero comics series ‘Watchmen’ won’t be getting a second season and wrapped up within the nice episodes it released last month on HBO. Why? Creator Damon Lindelof himself is ready to bow out of the show.
The show earned a positive review with the storyline giving its nods to the political situations of this world as well as the justice system for criminals. Lindelof is a co-creator of ABC’s ‘Lost’ and is said by HBO programming chief Casey Bloys to have “brilliantly” adapted the story, yet, created an amazing original show.
She also added, “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.”
What’s Lindelof’s answer? He’s done everything he wants to with this story and isn’t thinking about a second season. Although, he’s allowing HBO to pick it up with a different creator. But Bloys doesn’t think that’s what they want, “It would be hard to imagine doing it without Damon involved in some way.”
