Premiering last fall HBO’s Watchmen has been one of the attention gazing adventure genre which has been largely appreciated by the viewers. It was a game changing superhero genre which tried to evolve the entire mindset of it’s viewers. Shifting from the Cold War setting of Alan Moore and Dave Gibbon’s ‘80s comic series to a nine episode examination of race in America. Varying from vengeance to adrenaline rush Watchmen has been successful to draw the attention of its viewers and thoroughly amazed them.
Is there going to be a Watchmen season 2?
With the ongoing chatter all around from creator Damon Lindelof about season 2 with no concrete answers to emerge from it, there has always been an air of uncertainty all around. No official statements have been made still yet so the fog of doubt continues to grow however, hope is intact. Before that of the show’s premiere, last October, Lindelof and a few cast members appeared at Comic-Con to talk about Watchmen. When questioned about the future seasons the answer was rather an intentionally vague,” We want to see how it’s received by guys”. By the time the finale was airing in December, Lindelof had reversed course a bit saying “I am deeply, profoundly appreciated for how well received the season has been up until now, and I don’t want to feel like I’m ungrateful, but I still don’t have any inclination whatsoever to continue the story”.
The possible cast for the upcoming season Watchmen 2
Even though there has been an air of uncertainty however we can’t simply assume that watchmen are never going to come up with its second series. Being a huge hit in season 1 the stakes are greatly high for season 2. We can expect our favorites Regina King who has always been opened for a second season, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Jean Smart, Tim Blake Nelson, Jeremy Irons, and other supporting actors to have a come back in the upcoming season. Possibilities of seeing a new face are also high.
Spoilers of the season 1
Watchmen introduced us to Regina King’s masked vigilante, Sister Night, who lives in Tulsa, Oklahoma 100 years after the Black Wall Street massacre of 1921. Watchmen is set in an alternative parallel universe that closely mirrors the contemporary world of the 1980s. The primary difference is the presence of superheroes. Although the costumed crimefighters of Watchmen are commonly called “ Superheroes”, only one, named Doctor Manhattan, possesses any superhero abilities. The existence of Dr. Manhattan has given the U.S. has given strategic advantages over the Soviet Union, which has dramatically increased Cold War tensions.
Expected new season plotting
Even though the final episode of season 1 “ See How They Fly” doesn’t have much of ambiguity within itself it can have possibilities that the next season may start off from where it has been left behind. Angela who is seen to be mourning over the death of her husband’s doctor locates an egg that may or may not her late husband has transferred the power. In order to check that she steps into the swimming pool to see whether it has worked or not. The next season may start off from this and with twists and turns will not dissatisfy the urges of the viewers.
