Damon Lindelof’s Watchmen series might have been enjoying quite the success with critics praising the movie for the complexity of its narrative and for the depth of the layers of the show’s cultural context and characters, however, despite its success, fans may not be able to see another season from the series.

USA Today just recently reached out to Lindelof to ask whether he’d be working on a second season of Watchmen after HBO executive Casey Bloys discussed the potential of another batch of episodes for ths show. The television executive spoke with the media yesterday to indicate that the continuation of Watchmen was entirely up to the series’ showrunner and that HBO trusted Lindelof to respect whatever decisions he’d make for the series.

Unfortunately, it seems like Lindelof has no intention of working on a second season, though he does give HBO his blessing if ever the network would want to continue with a new installment under the wing of another writer or producer.

"Lindelof told USA TODAY this week that he's told the story he wants to tell and has no interest in a second season, though he's "given my blessing" to HBO should it want to pursue a new installment with another writer-producer,” the entertainment news outlet wrote in its report.

This shouldn’t come as a surprise to fans. Lindelof always meant for Watchmen to be a one season project. Sure, fans might want the showrunner to continue the narrative left behind by the show, but at the end of the day, it’s up to Lindelof what to do with the series.
