Watchmen Season 2? Possibly, But Not Anytime Soon.

In October of 2019 HBO rolled out nine episodes of Watchmen where the plot took place 34 years after the original story. The series was a definite success even winning Best New Series at the Writers Guild of America.  Even though the series was intended to be a one-off, such success would obviously warrant another season, right?  Well, it doesn’t appear that it will happen anytime soon.

Creator Damon Lindelof told Deadline that he doesn’t have anything in the works, but that he hasn’t completely shut the door on the idea:

“I never wanna close the door completely because if two, three years from now I say, I just had another idea, it will be that much harder to open. But I would say it’s barely ajar. I think that there are no current plans to make any more Watchmen. If the idea comes, I would be enthusiastic about it, the idea may not come from me. I would be super excited about it coming from someone else. So my position hasn’t changed.”

“It is really up to Damon at this point, he is thinking about what he wants to do. Truly, I don’t know at this point whether it is a returning drama series or a limited series. I think one of the things Damon did so brilliantly was, he opened up this entire world. So maybe there is another version with a whole new set of characters. I don’t know because Damon doesn’t know, and I’m taking his lead on this. If it’s a season two — great, if it’s a new take on the world — great, if it’s something else completely, I’m just going take his lead.”
