Lovecraft Country

Lovecraft Country was a strong success for HBO, and the network and showrunner Misha Green are exploring a possible second season. HBO and HBO Max CCO Casey Bloys spoke with TV Line and discussed the possibility of a second season. Despite the show’s critical and ratings success, no follow-up season has been announced.

When asked why the show has yet to be renewed, Bloys said that they were holding off until Green and her writing team can break a story for season two that holds to the quality of season one. He noted that Green Green “and her writers are currently, as we speak, trying to figure out what season two would look like. Remember, season one was based on a book, so you’ve got a roadmap. And especially for a show that is this big, to have that mythology and that roadmap is really, really helpful.”

He continued, “So we, and Misha, want to be really sure that there’s a story she feels good about that we feel good about. I am very hopeful that she’ll crack a story.”

Lovecraft Country, which was based on the 2016 novel of the same name by Matt Ruff, premiered in August of last year and ran to October. It starred Jurnee Smollett, Jonathan Majors, Aunjanue Ellis, Courtney B. Vance, Wunmi Mosaku, Abbey Lee, Jamie Chung, Jada Harris, and Michael K. Williams.
