In a shock move, HBO has announced that the critically acclaimed ‘Lovecraft Country’ will not be returning for a second season.
Full story below…
Anchored by Jonathan Majors and Jurnee Smollett, the wildly popular show blended real-life historical events with Afro-Futurism.
Produced by Jordan Peele, it quickly garnered a loyal following, award recognition, and it consistently delivered solid ratings for the premium cable network.
However, those feats combined were not enough to yield a season two return.
In a statement Deadline, HBO reps said:
“We will not be moving forward with a second season of Lovecraft Country. We are grateful for the dedication and artistry of the gifted cast and crew, and to Misha Green, who crafted this groundbreaking series. And to the fans, thank you for joining us on this journey.”
Devasting. The show was easily one of the most gripping new offerings in recent memory.
