Lovecraft Country will not have a Season 2

HBO has confirmed through the pages of Deadline that Lovecraft Country will not enjoy a Season 2. The series, arrives in Italy on Sky Atlantic, was created by Misha Green and produced by JJ Abrams and Jordan Peele and was inspired by the novel of the same name by Matt Ruff (in Italy with the title False Truth that you can buy on Amazon).

The network has not adopted precise reasons as to why it has decided not to continue the series with a Season 2. Feedback from critics and audiences in fact they had been more than good, probably at the base of the choice there is the desire to go beyond what was told in the original novel and therefore the more classic "creative differences".

Lovecraft Country, the series

Lovecraft Country follows Atticus Black, played by Jonathan Majors (From 5 Bloods), in search of his missing father, along with his uncle George (Courtney B. Vance) and friend Letitia "Leti" Dandrige - played by Jurnee Diana Smollett (Underground).
A frightening journey through racist America of the 1950s will begin, in which the protagonists will have to deal with the horrors of racial segregation and with mysterious and terrifying monsters that seem to come directly from the stories of HP Lovecraft.

Lovercraft Country is the first project produced by JJ Abrams and his production company Bad Robot after the exclusive agreement that binds them to Warner Bros. for which the same director and producer develop the TV series Justice League Dark which will have as protagonists some of the characters of the mystical and horror side of DC and will always be broadcast on HBO Max.

Justice League Dark is the third DC project developed for the HBO Max platform after the Green Lantern TV series and the Strange Adventures anthology series. We do not currently know details on the project nor which characters will appear: it is difficult to involve Wonder Woman while it would be interesting to understand if DC, Warner and Abrams want to exploit the Swamp Thing seen on the homonymous DC Universe series and above all the John Constantine played by Matt Ryan 'Arrowverse.

The project has been repeatedly announced, postponed and reworked, passing among others as a film in the hands of Guillermo Del Toro and Doug Liman. JJ Abrams recently directed the controversial Star Wars - The Rise of Skywalker.
