No second season for the Watchmen

As I noted a couple of weeks ago, HBO's series The Watchmen is superb, almost a perfect sequel to the original comic series.

Alas, it looks like there will be no second season. While the first season presents a complete story and ends very well, I must confess that I'm a little disappointed. Among other things, I wanted to learn the fate of Nite Owl. But if Damon Lindelof isn't interested in returning to the world then there's no point in HBO putting out some inferior product.

Nothing ever ends? Looks like Watchmen did... But it least it ended well.

(Thanks to C. Robichaud for the tip.)


  1. I haven't had a chance to see it yet. I'm surprised they are only doing a single season.

  2. I seem to be one of the few who actually liked the movie, and this was even better...so naturally it won't be renewed because....

  3. It ended on Spooky Tooth's version of the Beatles 'I Am The Walrus' of which John Lennon said it was the best version of it.
    And in my never humble opinion a perfect ending to the surreal Watchman series.

  4. I loved every episode... the final on the notes of "I am the walrus"... incredible... the episode "A god walks into a bar" is simply perfect... loved it
