'Watchmen' Season 2 Is Almost Definitely Not Happening; HBO Exec Explains Why

Watchmen was one of the best-reviewed new shows of 2019, but fans hoping to get more episodes will be disappointed to find out that a second season will almost definitely not happen.

Damon Lindelof, the creator of the series, has expressed that he’s not interested in returning for a second season and HBO is not interested in making more seasons without him.

“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,” HBO programming chief Casey Bloys told USA Today.

Damon has said he gave his blessing to HBO to pursue future seasons, but it sounds like that won’t happen without him.

Bloys added, “It would be hard to imagine doing it without Damon involved in some way.”
