At the end of the year, HBO’s WATCHMEN debuted with a bang and a tale that we’re still deciphering long into 2020. Based on the 1986-87 DC Comics series written by Alan Moore and illustrated by Dave Gibbons.
the show picks up decades later, changing this Cold War-era story into a reflection of white supremacy and its influence on politics in the United States today. Fans immediately began asking when and if Watchmen Season 2 will air after the show’s initial run of success. This is all we know about that possibility.
WATCHMEN SEASON 2 Return
It doesn’t look like it’s going to happen right now. Watchmen was never intended to be a series that lasted more than a single season in the first place. For Damon Lindelof, Watchmen was always intended to be a one-off story that would not be expanded into a larger series.

As a result, the story he intended to portray would feel complete. When it comes time for another season, the showrunner has given HBO his okay to pass the baton to someone else. As a result of Lindelof’s decision, the network has decided not to move forward with a second season.
WATCHMEN SEASON 2 Premiere On HBO
If there be a second season of Watchmen, it may not come out until at least 2022. There is a strong resemblance to Westworld in terms of scope, plot, and workmanship in the high-concept HBO series (also hard to ignore these two are based on popular movies and books, but I digress). Lindelof’s successor as showrunner would have to have an idea worthy of a second season to get the green light from the network.
WATCHMEN SEASON 2 Cast Member
We can’t confirm or estimate what will happen in Season 2 based on who is returning because none of the Watchmen cast has publicly declared whether they have signed on for a Season 2 (should it happen). However, based on the conclusion of Season 1, we have a good sense of which cast members are likely to return for Season 2.

Angela Abar (aka Sister Night), Tim Blake Nelson (Wade Tillman, nicknamed Looking Glass), and Jean Smart (Laurie Blake) are among the cast members. Jeremy Irons (Adrian Veith), Louis Gossett, Jr. (Will Reeves), Tom Mison (Mr. Phillips), and Jolie Hoang-Rappaport (Mr. Crookshank) also appear in the film (Bian). Even if they appear in flashbacks in Season 2, Hong Chau (Lady Trieu), Yahya Abdul-Mateen II (Doctor Manhattan), and James Wolk (Senator Joe Keene, Jr) cannot return.
WATCHMEN SEASON 1 END
Many loops were closed while new ones were opened in the Watchmen Season 1 finale. The program was concluded by meaning-filled end-credits music that had us puzzling our heads for the rest of the day.
Everyone wanted to be blue, at least in spirit. It was Senator Joe Keene, Jr.’s and Lady Trieu’s separate motives to acquire and absorb the powers of Dr. Manhattan. My best guess is that he desired Doc’s powers to carry out some horrific acts of racism against people of color. Keene Jr. was a terrible person.
When it came to using her talents for good, Trieu claimed she was motivated more by her desire for power than by any genuine desire to enhance the world. Doctor Manhattan’s powers belonged to someone, and that someone turned out to be Angela.
It was after his death that Angela remembered her husband’s statements about transferring his powers into organic stuff, combined with the recollection of their pancake fight, in which she ended up crushing all but one key egg.
Angela followed Manhattan’s instructions and went to the pool to eat the egg, which he had instructed her to do before he died. We also found out that Lady Trieu was the daughter of Adrian Veidt. Veidt and his offspring received a heavy dose of retribution for their common trait of cold, calculated intelligence notwithstanding their difficult relationship. By contrast, Veidt was arrested by Laurie Blake and Wade Tillman for orchestrating the fictitious interdimensional squid attack in the late 1980s, in which Trieu had been slain.
WATCHMEN SEASON 2 Plot
Watchmen Season 2 has yet to be renewed, therefore we have no idea what will happen. Watchmen Season 2 must have some sort of vindication for Lube Man, who was shown to be FBI agent Dale Petey by a severe and absolutely true memo from Petey’s boss (via Peteypedia).
The Silver Surfer analog was underutilized in Season 1 and has to be given more screen time as soon as possible. As far as I’m concerned, Season 2 could take any number of different paths. Season 2 might pick off where Season 1 left off, with Adrian Veidt facing trial on Earth for a fabricated squid attack and Angela Abar assuming the mantle of Doctor Manhattan II.
Another topic that might be explored is vigilantism’s future and legitimacy in the United States, and how the infiltration of the Tulsa Police Department by the white nationalist group Cyclops affected that future. Alternatively, Lindelof and the company have the option of following through on Moore’s original vision for Watchmen is an anthological format in Season 2.

If this were to happen, Watchmen could introduce an entirely new cast of people, all of whom would be aware of the events of Season 1, but who would be living out a new story in the other chronology of this universe.
