There may not be a Watchmen season 2, and the series may end sooner than expected.
Lindelof said that he had mentioned earlier that fans should know Watchmen was not part of a trilogy nor the beginning of a 7 season run.
He did say that there would always be room for more “Watchmen.” In his own words, “I think particularly when it comes to Watchmen or Fargo where we’re knocking the creators of the original, it’s sacrilegious and hypocritical to say, ‘Nobody else can come along and do another season of Watchman.’ ”
He said that if he was going to do another season of Watchman, he would need a very good reason for it.
” I don’t have either of those things right now. It doesn’t mean that they won’t come at some future point. I just finished the show four weeks ago. My antenna is up, but it’s like only getting static. I can’t say that there will not be a second season, and I can’t say there definitely will be. That’s kind of where my head’s at.” he said.
It was also asked if the cast was held under a contract for season 2 .“That’s an HBO/Warner Bros. question,” Lindelof replied.
“If any of the actors wanted to do another TV show or movie, I think that they would be free to do so.” Damon Lindelof said.
