Watchmen looks to set to end after one season
Watchmen looks to set to end after a single season on HBO.
Damon Lindelof's critically-acclaimed sequel to Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons's graphic novel ended its run on HBO and Sky Atlantic last month, and it looks as if it will not be returning.
Lindelof, who created Lost and The Leftovers in the past, told USA Today that he does not want to make a second season, though he has given HBO his "blessing" to make one without him.
HBO programming president Casey Bloys added that he does not want to the series to return if Lindelof is not involved.
He said: "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-type] take on it, or if he wants to do something different altogether."
He went on: "We're very proud of Watchmen, but what I'm most interested in is what Damon wants to do. It would be hard to imagine doing it without Damon involved in some way."
Jeremy Irons, Don Johnson, American Crime's Regina King, Johnson, O Brother, Where Art Thou?'s Tim Blake Nelson, Oscar winner Louis Gossett Jr., Reality's Adelaide Clemens and Welsh star Andrew Howard all starred in the series.
