Lovecraft Country has become a massive hit since it streamed on HBO. Here is what can happen in Lovecraft Country Season 2
The American sci-fi horror drama is based on Matt Ruff’s novel of the same name, follows the journey of Atticus “Tic” Freeman (Jonathan Majors) as he and his Uncle George (Courtney B. Vance) and friend Leti (Jurnee Smollett) go on a road trip across 1950s Jim Crow America.
The trio is in search of Atticus’s missing father, Montrose (Michael Kenneth Williams), and must fight through both terrifying monsters and racism in America.
At the end of season 1, fans were terrified as Tic’s blood was flowing from his arm in the Autumnal Equinox ceremony. The season one finale brought an end to Tic’s life, but it seems like showrunner Misha Green has ample future plans for the remaining Lovecraft Country cast.
Will there be a Lovecraft Country season 2?
While HBO has not officially confirmed about the chances of the second instalment of the horror series being ordered, Misha hinted to Rolling Stone that season 2 is a definite possibility.
“We’re in talks with HBO,” she told the outlet. Further, she said,
“I’m excited about exploring season two and what we have in mind. Nothing’s official.”
Despite the show’s leading man being killed off at the end of season 1, Misha is assured that “the world that was created in season one can be explored in so many ways.”
Lovecraft Country season 2 release date: When will it air?
Season one released on August 16 in the US on HBO, before arriving the following day here in the UK on Sky and NOW TV, so the best time to have it back would be a summer 2021 premiere.
With You Know What still creating chaos, productions are being closed all the time as the crew members self-isolate and get tested, so that is surely going to slow down proceedings.
Social distancing measures have also flipped the scenario, with the people on the set forced to adapt to a new way of working, which means the second chapter could take a lot longer to arrive in all ways.
Who would be in the second season?
As their roles are the foremost in the show, it’s obvious, Jurnee Smolett (Leti), Michael Kenneth Williams (Montrose), Aunjanue Ellis (Hippolyta), Jada Harris (Diana), and Jamie Chung (Ji-Ah) will all be present.
Talking about our Tic, a.k.a. Jonathan Majors, we believe his character is gone from the story for a reason. But then again, Jonathan once told Entertainment Weekly that he would love to be back if the show could find a way to bring back Tic’s life.
“If the angels that see fit that I continue in some twist, however, they’re going to do it, then that’s what they’ve ordained and that’s what I would do,” he told the outlet.
