HBO Watchmen limited series star Regina King says she will return for a second season, but only if producer Damon Lindelof returns. Based on Alan Moore’s famous graphic novel series of the same name. The HBO show is a sequel, set in Tulsa, Oklahoma, after 34 years in 2019. In the series’ universe, the Watchers, who were seen as Heroes, they are banned due to their violent instincts.
Watchmen season 2: Release Date
When the second season occurs, we may have to wait a bit. Lindelof told that the writing team had not saved any ideas to use in future seasons rather than covering everything in the current nine episodes.
Because Watchman is a revisionist sequel, an entirely new plotline needs to be made, rather than a direct adaptation. So filming for Season 2 has to wait until the writing team comes up with one.
Watchmen season 2: Cast
Season One introduced some new characters like:
- Sister Knight as Angela Abar
- Regina King as the Black-Masked Vigilante
- Tim Blake Nelson as Veidt Tillman
- Jeremy Irons as Adrian West
- Jean Smart as Laurie Blake
- Yahya Abdul Mateen as Doctor Manhattan
The characters that survived the first season would likely return, as well as possibly a few more faces from the comics. The series ingenious flashback structure leaves the choice of actors in current and historical incarnations of Watchman’s original heroes.
Regina King who played the r Detective Angela Abar, also known as Sister Knight. After the attack on the Tulsa Police Department, the law requires that police wear masks to protect their identities. Detective Abar works with Chief Police Judge Crawford (Don Johnson) to investigate the white supremacy group Seventh Cavalry. The events of the series focus on racial injustice and violence, the setting directly referring to the Tulsa massacre, which took place in 1921, almost 100 years ago.
Watchman’s first season was a critical success and had an ending that could lead to future stories. Despite this, producer Lindelof has repeatedly stated that he has no new ideas for season two and, he has left Watchman, but HBO has a different showrunner, we guess!
