HBO has announced there will not be a second season of Lovecraft Country. Some dedicated fans could tell that this day was coming, but many were expecting a second season. Series lead, Misha Green seemed eager to get to work on season two, “I imagine a second season that carries on the spirit of Matt Ruff’s novel by continuing to cultivate a kind of narrative space in which people of color have generally been left out,” she told Hollywood Reporter last October.
Season 1 follows Atticus Freeman (Johnathan Majors), who traveled from Chicago to the western towns of the Jim Crow South in the 1950s with his childhood friend Letitia (Jurnee Smollet) and uncle George (Courtney B. Vance) to search for his missing father Montrose (Michael K. Williams). Their journey leads them into trouble when they tangle with racist white America, and encounter creatures from out-of-this-world.
Ultimately, HBO opted out of a second season. Lovecraft Country was a period-piece which blended sci- fi and horror, while never shying away from social examination. The series is adapted from the book of the same title, written by Matt Ruff.
“A taste of the season 2 Bible. Wish we could have brought you #LovecraftCountrySupremacy.”
