One of the most intriguing new TV shows shot in Atlanta that aired in 2019 was HBO’s “Watchmen.” It blended reality, an alternative universe, Robert Redford, race, the cops, superheroes, clones and squids in a way that somehow clicked with viewers and critics alike.
The series elevated actress Regina King to a new level and brought us some wonderful moments with the likes of Tim Blake Nelson, Louis Gossett Jr., Jeremy Irons and Jean Smart.
But “Watchmen” isn’t likely to come back for a second season.
Creator Damon Lindelof simply isn’t interested. He said he’s fine if HBO wants to do something with “Watchmen” without him, but the “Lost” and “Leftovers” creator himself doesn’t want to do another season.
HBO isn’t exactly psyched by that prospect.
