HBO has no plans to continue the acclaimed series.
January 23, 2020
It looks like we have seen the last of HBO's hit series Watchmen. Creator Damon Lindelof stated recently that he has told the story he intended to tell and has no interest in staying on with the show should it continue.
Following up on Lindelof's sentiment, the cable network's programming chief Casey Bloys said that he could not envision producing another season of the show without Lindelof's involvement. He did leave the door open for a possible future instalment should Lindelof reconsider, but at this point it appears very unlikely that will happen.
Based on the graphic novel of the same name, Watchmen takes place in an alternate contemporary reality, where superheroes are looked upon as outlaws because of their violent approach to peacekeeping. Despite being outcast, some of them gather to start a revolution while others try to stop it before it's too late.

@ ed g
My ilk? I only speak for myself thanks.
I see you post opinions quite often on this site so I'll bite. I think this site is for giving your say if you like a show or not... some liked this show and some didnt. I said I didnt and gave a reason for not liking it because of the lazy writing and used acronyms which really triggered some. I never said others cant talk about racism, gender equality and whatever else on this site, I just said I didnt want to. Where if not here you ask? how about anywhere... starting at your home with your kids, schools, churches, rallies, work, community out reach centers... I can go on but I'm guessing you get it. Just because I dont fall in line with your opinion I'm a racist? ok just because you say so doesn't make it so. Racism can't be summed up and fixed in a tv show/movie or in one small paragraph, it's to big and complex. That's why I dont want to get into it on this site. I'll happily talk to anyone and everyone whether they agree with me or don't... just not on here because you end up sounding like a whackado or labeled a racist.
I feel like I'm in the twilight zone... the old series not the new one. new one is terrible.

Find me any race on Earth that isn't bigoted against someone.Some people forget that black people were captured and enslaved by other black people for centuries long before whites got involved in it.At least race relations get better little by little. It might not seem it at times but it does.It might take a few more centuries but maybe someday everyone will be more tolerant.

@blake. "I dont think this is the forum." Classic racist response. You guys never think ANY forum is "The Forum." Ill bet you said that same exact thing when Kap took knees. So tell me Blake, which forum WOULD you be comfortable discussing these matters in? Hmm? I dont think there IS one that makes you and your ilk comfortable, and thats why it needs to be discussed ANYWHERE and EVERYWHERE. You're not MEANT to feel comfortable on the subject of racism. And if it goes on like that for the next 400 years, so be it. You'd still be better off in that 400 year block, than MOST other races where in any block that long.

Scott, you tipped your hand and showed your TRUE colors when you said "Other side." What other side? It just shows that you see sides when there should be no "sides." And that is the ROOT of racism.

Hey MoeB, you hit the nail on the head, lol. If I were a betting man, which i AM, id bet that all the people complaining about the "SJW" agenda are probably flaming, undercover racists who dont want the mirror held up to their bigoted faces.

Come on? Did you see the movie? Absolute masterpiece. The series was nonsensical, had nobody to truly fall in love with, poorly written, I am sorry but if you are going to do watchmen you need to continue where they left off or at least develop the characters that made the movie watchmen incredible! This series was terrible and unwatchable like Adam Sandler movies on Netflix.

Reading the comments, it's really hard to tell if some people are serious or trolls. The sad thing is, both are actual, credible possibilities.

Moe not every person of color think the way you do .watch young rippa are amazing Lucas on YouTube. They want pre established characters that are black to stand out and alot do already. I read the comics in the 1980s and loved Monica as captain marvel and didnt see the new movie due to her not being monica.your fighting racism and there is none here this is about a comic book property. Not real life.
