HBO'S Watchmen is Generating Buzz But May Only Last One Season

Damon Lindelof and HBO's adaptation of Watchmen has begun and is currently on-going. The nine-episode series is a sequel to Alan Moore and Dave Gibbonsí original 1985 comic which was adapted into a film by Zack Snyder back in 2009. In talking to the press Lindelof said the new series was designed specifically to be a self-contained single-season and a second season isnít ruled out but there are no plans or even rough ideas for one. When asked by Deadline how many seasons does he plan for the series to go, he responded: ďIím not being flippant when I say that the answer is one. Does that mean that there isnít going to be anymore Watchmen? Not necessarily. Does that mean that I will be working on subsequent seasons of Watchmen? I donít know is the answer to that question. We designed these nine episodes to be as self-contained as the original 12 issues. We wanted to feel like there was a sense of completeness, to resolve the essential mystery at hand. Obviously, there is a potential promise for the further exploration of the world but like the seasons of Leftovers that I did as opposed to Lost, which was designed to have cliffhanger finales and a promise of future storytelling.Ē Because the series took a lot of work establishing what happened after the end of the original story there was no consideration paid to what could follow what we will see.
