Watchmen has received massive critical acclaim last year earning praise from critics and fans alike. The show took the iconic graphic novel and was able to make a successful limited series that fans of both the graphic novel and DC comics, in general, can enjoy.

With so much hype and praise, a second season was inevitable. Apparently not, as creator Damon Lindelof said that he is not interested in a second season of Watchmen.

Lindelof has spoken out saying  he feels that he has already told the story he wants to tell and really has no interest in a second season but has “given his blessing” to HBO should they want to do a second season with another writer and producer.

It’s hard to imagine the show continuing on without Lindelof.  HBO Programming Chief Casey Bloys has said in a statement that Lindelof, “brilliantly took this graphic novel and just kind of broke it open and created a whole new world,” in which Regina King starred as a masked cop in Tulsa, in a 2019 when Robert Redford is president. 

If there’s an idea that excited him (Damon) about another season, another installment, maybe like a Fargo, True Detective (anthology) take on it, or if he wants to do something different altogether.

We’re very proud of ‘Watchmen,’ but what I’m most interested in what Damon wants to do.” Casey Bloys continued saying, “It would be hard to imagine doing it without Damon involved in some way.”

It seems that because of Lindelof’s lack of involvement, HBO will not continue with Watchmen. Perhaps this is for the best as Watchmen can live on as a limited series that touched the hearts and minds of fans.
