Over the years, HBO has presented us with many acclaimed shows. These include shows like Band Of Brothers, Chernobyl, Westworld, Barry, and The Wire. It has kept on with the tradition with the introduction of Watchmen in October 2019.
Created by Damon Lindelof, Watchmen debuted on HBO on 20th October 2019. The DC show is a continuation of the 1987 comic series by the same name written by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons. Watchmen revolves around a gang of masked vigilantes treated as criminals by the Government. The American superhero noir follows the watchmen’s journey as they try to put an end to the mutiny before it causes any more chaos.
When Will Season 2 Release?
The show’s creator has stated in many interviews about the possibility of season 2. Although, during a recent interview, the creator has hinted that the second season seems unlikely. However, there has been no official announcement from HBO regarding the renewal of the cancellation of the show. Unfortunately, the second season of the American sci-fi show seems likely at the moment. In January 2020, Damon Lindelof stated that he had no interest in returning to the show at present. However, he has given his blessings to HBO to continue the series without him. So if at all the show is renewed, it will be without its original creator. HBO’s executive producer Nicole Cassell has given us hope for one more season while speaking to Business Insider.
What To Expect From Season 2?
Season 1 has left the fans with a lot of unanswered questions. This is one of the major reasons as to why the show would be renewed for season 2. Because only the second season can untangle the complications laid down by season 1.
The second season is likely to pick up after the events of season 1. Whether Angela has inherited Dr. Manhattan’s powers will be the key to the plot. If she has, then the new season could focus more on her as a superhuman. But if she has not, then we will have to just deal with the tragic loss of Dr. Manhattan. There were a lot of references to Dan Dreiberg, the former Nite Owl II, and Laurie’s ex. Throughout the season, Laurie has given numerous nite owl references scattered here and there. This means that he can make a surprise entrance in the second season
It looks as if Adrian’s crimes against humanity will be finally exposed in season 2. Wade has his taped confession i.e the message to Robert Redford, and Adrian is currently in Laurie’s custody. This means that he can finally be brought to justice and held accountable on Earth
Who Will Return For Season 2?
This is how we expect the cast to be for season 2:
- Regina King as Angela
- Jeremy Irons as Adrian
- Jean Smart as Laurie/ Silk Spectre
- Tim Blake Nelson as Wade
- Hong Chau as Lady Trieu
- Don Johnson as Chief Judd Crawford
New additions could be made to the cast based upon the characters in the comics.
Watchmen season 1 is currently streaming on Disney+
