Lovecraft Country Season 2 Release Date And Latest Updates For The HBO Max Show

Lovecraft Country now is one of the American horror drama television series which is being waited for by all its fans from all over the world. It is developed by Misha Green and its storyline is based on and serving as a continuation of the 2016 novel of the same name by Matt Ruff. It premiered on August 16, 2020, on HBO and since then everyone has been waiting for some news about its second season.

So till now according to all the reports nothing is official but in  February 2021, HBO’s Casey Bloys said ‘Misha is working with a small team of writers and they’re coming up with a take. She had a book to go on in the first season, she and the writers wanted to go off and take some time to go out and figure out, without a book with these characters, what’s the journey we want to go on. We all want to be sure she’s got a story to tell. That’s where she is right now, working on those ideas.’ So dear readers keep your fingers crossed and hope for the best that we will be able to witness the second season of Lovecraft Country. 

So the next question in your mind would be when exactly will we be able to witness this new season? Well as according to our sources we know that they haven’t started filming as of yet thus we can’t expect it to be released in August 2021 as it did last year… Therefore we might need to wait till 2022 for the new season to be released. 

Now it is going to be almost a year since the release of the first season of Lovecraft Country. I think we should have a quick recap of what happened in the first season’s finale. We saw how the story seemingly comes into a full circle, with Atticus dying and fulfilling Ji-Ah’s vision. Diana being cursed, and Montrose, Leti, and Hippolyta trying to recover her from the curse. But soon the crew falls into an ancestral dream by opening the book of names, where Atticus meets his mother, Dora.

Fortunately, Diana is saved, as they get to learn Christina’s spell of immortality and apply it to Diana and bring her back from the curse.  But to bind the curse they would require Christina’s blood and Titus’ flesh and there comes the twist as Christina deceives everyone by taking the form of Ruby. But a fight between Leti and Christina occurs, and Leti ultimately takes the magic from Christina. With a lot of drama and sacrifice at the end of the episode, we all see the death of Christina in the robotic hands of Diana which was a byproduct of lifting the curse. 

Although Misha Green had a book to rely on in the first season it is now known to us that Misha Green and her writers are trying to develop a script that expands on this intriguing universe they have created by exploring distant possibilities and not referring to the book. Therefore, the second season gives her and her crew more room for imagination. It can be predicted that season 2 will follow Tic’s son as a grown-up. Although it is not for sure as there is a whole lot of possibilities to go with but all we got to do is wait and watch which path does Misha Green chooses to walk on.
