Lovecraft Country’s creator, Misha Green took to Twitter on Wednesday, 14 July 2021, to share an inside look at what would have happened in the show’s now canceled second season. Lovecraft Country premiered in August 2020 on HBO. Set in the 1950s, the show’s first season was based on Mark Ruff’s dark fantasy novel of the same name.
The series stars Jonathan Majors as Atticus Freeman, who searches for his father upon returning from the Korean War. However, he soon discovers a dark side to his family’s history. Despite the show receiving strong ratings and 18 Emmy nominations, HBO chose not to move forward with a second season.
Green recently shared information about what she had intended for the show’s second season, tweeting a picture of the show’s bible contents page and captioning it, “Just going to leave this right here.” While the page did not spoil too much, it still teased exciting pieces of information, including an explanation for “the origin” and “the source”, as well as plans for a potential third season. It also stated which characters the viewers could have expected to see, including more of Atticus and Letitia Lewis.
Since HBO announced that it will not be renewing the show for a second season, fans have been asking for more information regarding the second season, and Green appears more than willing to provide answers. There have been numerous calls for the series to be picked up by a streaming service or another network. Even though Green is currently working on the Tomb Raider sequel, she allegedly signed a multi-year deal with Apple Television to create new content for its streaming platform. Fans are also led to believe that there is a possibility that Apple Television will pick up Lovecraft Country for a second season, however, it has yet to be confirmed.
