There are new worlds to explore – literally – in the genre leap Lovecraft Country, the HBO series that applies supernatural horrors to Jim Crow America. With so much to discover and the end of the season is just around the corner, fans are curious whether showrunner Misha Green will deviate further from her source material, Matt Ruff’s 2016 novel. If so, could that open the door to a second season?
Let’s just say the odds are good. The actors are in love with the show (and with each other). Producers, including JJ Abrams and Jordan Peele, are invested. And if critical responses ranged from bright to lukewarm, the audience is strong, according to The Hollywood Reporter, Lovecraft Country debuted at “Guardians-like notes, “a good sign given Guardianscritical success and recent Emmy wins. With all of that in mind, here’s what we know of a Lovecraft Country Season 2.
There is a lot more material to work with.
In early August, Green spoke to HBO about the adaptation of the series. “We basically used the book as a nice starting point,” she says. “My strategy was to take all his dope, cool stuff and write new stuff, cool stuff.” Of course, this is a reference to the times Season 1 went beyond the book. But could that mean a willingness to expand beyond a single season, too?
Additionally, Ruff’s novel is a collection of eight different stories. Several have already made it into the series in one way or another – hello, Book of Names – but more have yet to emerge, which means there is more to work on in them. next episodes.
The finish promises to be a dropper.
While the final episode has yet to air, we recommend that you crouch down and prepare for a major cliffhanger. Jurnee Smollett, who plays Letitia, recently appeared on Deadline‘s New Hollywood Podcast to talk about the series, and she dropped some juicy clues on the last episode.
“When I think about what Misha did in 10 [episodes]- that’s wrong, actually, she laughed. “It’s pretty cruel. Where she takes everyone with your emotions, I apologize in advance. When asked for a word to describe the finale, she said, “Shocking. It’s so amazing that [Green] went there. “
Of course, Green could look to finish his run with Lovecraft Country on a positive note, but the more likely possibility is that she’s planning an even bolder second season. That’s how Smollett interprets it, anyway. “I mean, it would be so bad for people, the way episode 10 ends, not to do another season,” she said. Deadline. “But listen, it’s not up to me. It all depends on the costumes.
Unfortunately, we don’t know much else yet.
Because HBO has yet to make an official announcement on Season 2, we are left in limbo, waiting to learn the fate of our favorite characters. There is also no way to predict a release date for the next chapter; COVID-19 has made sure of this. Perhaps worst of all, we don’t yet know who will survive the season finale – and who could be resurrected by chance.
