One of the best and most popular shows that kept viewers raving for years, HBO’s Watchmen is speculated to have reported that a possible season 2 is not off the board just yet. Watchmen is a superhero series based on an old comic novel by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ from the 80s and is set in an alternative reality.
With no presidential term limits in the United States, a group of vigilantes have been outcast and stripped from society. The series follows the story of a mutiny being started by a group as the opposite side attempts to stop their efforts to avoid chaos.
Is Watchmen Season 2 Renewed or Cancelled?
The concerned authorities have not yet announced a cancellation or renewal for Watchmen Season 2.
Yet it appears improbable that there will be another season based on what we already know. Primarily because Damon Lindelof, the show’s director and producer, has stated that he has “no interest in a second season,” despite giving HBO permission to move forward with the show, if they choose, without them. HBO has stated that they will only be interested in making another installment if Lindelof is willing to work on it.
Casy Bloys, the showrunner of the well-known program, disclosed in an interview when asked about the renewal status of the second season:
“It would be hard to imagine doing it without Damon involved somehow.”
He goes on to say that Damon Lindelof is crucial to the success of the series and that without him, it wouldn’t be the same since he delivers a thunder that no one else can match:
“Where we left it with Damon as he’s thinking about what he wants to do, and I’m taking his lead on that. If he has an idea that he’s excited about, then I’m excited; if he wants to do something else, that’s what I want to do.”
So, in one way or another, if the series is to proceed, the franchise hopes to have the original brains behind it, who aren’t currently willing to return. However, do not let this truth depress you, people since he once disclosed on his social media handle that HBO is considering producing a second season.
How many Episodes are there Going to be?
The second season will probably follow the same format since the first season had nine episodes with a run time of fifty-two to sixty-seven minutes each.
Given that it took “two years to make [those] nine episodes of Watchmen,” according to Damon Lindelof, to deliver the best final product to the audience, the precise number of episodes will be produced if they put in the same effort in Watchmen Season 2.
Where can you Watch Watchmen Season 1?
HBO has started airing the Watchmen series. The HBO OTT service now has all Watchmen episodes available.
If HBO confirms, we anticipate that the second season of the television series Watchmen will air soon. The second season of the television show Watchmen could very well be announced. See what happens after that. We will update this page as soon as we learn any new information.
The Popularity of the Show
The appreciation for the show is not all for the show; in the 2020 Emmys, it was the most nominated series (26 nominations) and swept away 11 awards by the end of the night.
The initial nine episodes of Watchmen in season 1 promised a season 2 with several questions left unanswered and the space for so much more.
But although HBO seems interested and even inclined to create a second season – the creator of the show Damon Lindelof does not. The chief at the HBO office even tweeted a possibility earlier last year.
Possible Plotlines in Season 2
In a potential season 2, the viewers might finally know if Angela receives her husband, Dr. Manhattan’s, powers or not (which could be life-changing for her and the entire series). Her superhuman evolution could be the basis for season 2, and on the flip side, the loss of Dr. Manhattan could cause a domino effect in the world.
Another possible inclusion would be for the former Nite Owl, Dan Dreiberg (Patrick Wilson), Laurie’s ex, to make an appearance. Since his ship was finally brought to the final surface and it is evident that Laurie still cares deeply for him, that would be a storyline worth investigating.
This may also be a great time to finalize the punishment of Adrian Veidt (Jeremy Irons). Now that Wade has his confession taped in the message to Robert Redford, in addition to Veidt being in Laurie’s custody – this seems like the right opportunity for justice.
Despite all the fan theories and requests, it has been clear that there will not be a season 2 without the creator being involved. And that means it will eventually arrive and be as good if not better than the first one. Or this could mean that season 1 was all the fans get, which is probably better than a spur-of-the-moment script that could permanently alter the story.
If you haven’t watched the show yet, you should get to it right now, but if you are a fan waiting and yearning for a season 2 – for now, all we can do is rewatch the show and marvel at the genius that wrote and created it. But soon, fans will get answers to all unanswered questions from the previous season.
