    Great finish. This was really good. Very well-told. They could easily make it a one-off or circle back based on that cliffhanger, too.

    This is how I felt as well. I couldn't get into it.

    WATCHMEN Unlikely To Get a Second Season

    It is December 15, 2019. The Watchmen season one finale is airing for the first time. It is November 9, 2018. We have just reported HBO is producing a sequel series to Alan Moore and Dave Gibbonís seminal graphic novel. It is March 15, 2022. We are still hoping a second season will take place. It is April 30, 2025. We are losing hope of Watchmen returning. Okay, weíre just guessing about those last two things. We donít actually experience time like Dr. Manhattan. Itís just that it certainly seems like thatís the fate that awaits fans of the hit HBO series. The network has said it will not go forward without show creator Damon Lindelof. Unfortunately heís not interested in returning to the series.

    Lindelof told USA Today he will not be doing a second season of the critically acclaimed series because he completed the story he wanted to tell. He didnít say no one could make a second season though. Lindelof gave his ďblessingĒ to HBO to continue on without him. The problem is the network has been adamant itís not interested in going on without him. HBO programming chief Casey Bloys said this week the network has no intention of handing the series off to someone else. ďIt would be hard to imagine doing it without Damon involved in some way,Ē Bloys said. Thatís not a definitive statement, and things can always change. But that has been the consistent message from the network.

    Bloys has even said the show wouldnít have to be a direct follow-up to the first season if thatís not what Lindelof would want. It could continue as an anthology series, like Fargo or True Detective. However, that doesnít seem to matter to Lindelof. Itís also debatable how much that would actually work. Anthology series normally donít have the same characters. Part of what made HBOís Watchmen so good was the way it built off of the original comic. Major figures and history from Moore and Gibbonís story were a huge part of the TV series. To tell an unrelated tale in the same world might not be as effective.
