    It feels weird seeing Peele/Abrams in the title when this show is such Green’s baby.

    Reminds me of how often I hear about Lost being J.J. Abrams’s when he had already relinquished his co-showrunning duties by the time that the show premiered.

    Why is HBO dragging their feet so hard on a renewal for this?

    The Damon Lindelof erasure irritates me to this day. He MADE that show for what it was and should have won three Emmys for “Pilot”, “Through the Looking Glass” and “The End” although I’m not so bothered by the last loss because “Shut the Door… Have a Seat” from Mad Men was also quite deserving.

    FYC: All things The Crown, Hacks and I May Destroy You (and Hannah Waddingham and Julianne Nicholson whilst you're at it)!!

    While it certainly wasn’t the most consistent show, there were quite a few episodes I really enjoyed. “Meet Me in Daegu” and “Jig-a-Bobo” were particular standouts. It might be for the best to leave it at one season, since it is based on a book and it ended with finality, but I’ll miss it.

    Well Damn…I love this show…I wanted a second season. Plus This would’ve swept in the Limited Series category! HBO couldn’t make up their minds two months ago??????

    ‘Lovecraft Country’ Not Returning For Season 2 On HBO

    This is from that article:

    With its unique blend of horror, fictional period drama, real historical figures, fantasy, sci-fi and social commentary, the empowering Lovecraft Country took pop culture by storm in August and helped advance the social conversation ignited by the death of George Floyd.

    I’m sorry but this simply isn’t true.

    No, it wouldn’t. It’s probably no higher than 5th in drama, and I’m pretty confident The Queen’s Gambit would beat the entire drama field.

    Lovecraft Country is better off in drama than it would be in Limited

    This show is awesome but it’s no Watchmen

    FYC Emmys: Get MJ Rodriguez that deserved WIN! And some votes for Elizabeth Olsen, Tobias Menzies and Matthew Rhys will be highly tasteful as well

    I figured that the long wait for renewal news was a bad sign. Fine with this being one season only, but I would have watched a second based on the high level of talent involved and the innovative premise. The series is better served in drama than in limited series anyways, where both Michael Kenneth Williams and Courtney B. Vance are competitive to win acting Emmys.

    It will get into Drama, it would have been lucky to get into Limited Series so… no.

    I’m sad because I really wanted to see more of these characters, but I trust in HBO. If they don’t pick it up for a second season I’m sure that’s means it will be not that good.

    This sucks. HBO thinks they have so many good shows to watch (they don’t), so they didn’t need this.
