It’s official: Lovecraft Country will just be a one season show. After contemplating ideas about a second season for months, HBO has revealed that the story will end at season 1. The show was one of the most critically-acclaimed series of last year and is expected to garner multiple Emmy nods, particularly for the performances of its all-star cast.
Viewers know that the season wrapped up its story with just this one season and it was always sort of viewed as if it could be its own standalone story.
“We will not be moving forward with a second season of Lovecraft Country,” said HBO. “We are grateful for the dedication and artistry of the gifted cast and crew, and to Misha Green, who crafted this groundbreaking series. And to the fans, thank you for joining us on this journey.
The first season followed Atticus Freeman (Jonathan Majors) as he journeys with his childhood friend Letitia (Jurnee Smollett) and his uncle George (Courtney B. Vance) on a road trip from Chicago across 1950s Jim Crow America in search of his missing father Montrose (Michael Kenneth Williams). Their search-and-rescue turns into a struggle to survive and overcome both the racist terrors of white America and monstrous creatures that could be ripped from an H.P. Lovecraft paperback.
