A Watchmen TV series was always going to be a tricky proposition. Not only are the original comics sacred among fans, but the film adaptation released just ten years back didn’t fare well with critics — and the less said about exactly what the founder thinks of it all, the greater.
Fortunately, that did not stop Lost co-creator Damon Lindelof from”remixing” key topics from the narrative to make a fresh show set 30 years after the first story.
From ignoring the movie and exploring the wake of important events from the comic book, HBO’s Watchmen has successfully paid homage to the source material without rehashing what has come before, developing a daring new take on superhero storytelling that needs to be viewed by fans and beginners alike.
However, is that enough to guarantee another season? Grab your mask and join us as we reveal all you want to know about Watchmen period two.
Watchmen’s ratings at the box office!
The 2009 Watchmen was slammed at the box office and was not received well by the critics.
However, it wasn’t severe enough for the Damon Lindelof, who saw this as a struggle.
Precisely a decade Damon Lindelof, following the debacle movie, made a version of Watchmen.
This 9 episode long series aired first on 20 October 2019 and got a 96% rating (Rotten Tomatoes).
What will happen in season 2?
Even though the first period is a story, its success opens the door for a different season. Creator Damon Lindelof or HBO is to affirm for season two.
But since now 1 obtained enormous fan base and critical acclaim, the odds of a different season are very high. Year 1’s structure is going to slow down the speed of writing season 2.
Season 1 was comparatively self-contained, a standalone story with a great. The primary season was with a view of seven years-long string or at the center of a trilogy as Damon Lindelof said.
The same as the original novel of Alan Moore, it has to be self-contained to be successful.
