The HBO’s Watchmen is an American superhero drama based on the 1987 DC Comics series ‘Watchmen,’ created by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons was finally created by Damon Lindel as successful and impactful Tv Series who also served as the writer and executive producer of the show. Watchmen Season 1 was an impressive hit among the fans and series 2 is going to continue the journey from where the storyline for the comic ended, giving it a fresher and real touch of the current times. Fans will be excited to know that the series is a sequel that takes place 34 years after the events of the comic.
The cast includes Regina King as Angela the detective, Don Johnson as Judd Crawford, the chief of Tulsa Police as the main character of the series. Other cast members include Tim Blake Nelson, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Andrew Howard, Jacob Ming-Trent, Tom Mison, Sara Vickers, Dylan Schombing, Louis Gossett Jr., and Jeremy Irons. Jean Smart and Hong Chau joined the cast in later episodes. Lindelof wanted to showcase new characters and conflicts that lay down a new story in continuation of The Watchman. The story of the series depicts the racist crime and violence in Tulsa, Oklahoma. All of this led a white supremacist group to stand up and get armed against the Tulsa Police Department.
This being the main plot of the series still had some loose ends which could lead towards Season 2. However, there is no confirmation on the storyline, the cast, and the potential release date of the series by the makers of the series. Lindelof always wanted to have Season 2 of the series made however has declared that he won’t be going ahead with Season 2 himself; thus, making it a limited series. As per him, he already has showcased the story he always wanted to.
He further went on record mentioning that he would extend all his support and will facilitate everything in his power to enable anyone who wants to take the show ahead from where he left off. He adds, “I hope there’s more Watchmen. I don’t think it should be me.” On the other end, HBO stated that there won’t be any continuation of The Watchman series unless Lindelof comes back in some capacity and becomes a part of the show. The silver lining is that the streaming partner has not confirmed that the show not expected to come up with any future line ups.
All of that leaves us with the fact that the future of the series is very uncertain and even if the much popular series comes up with any further installment, it will a long wait for the fans. Hopefully, we should hear something positive in the upcoming months.
