And what that could look like.
HBO’s Watchmen has been a huge hit, with a strong digital viewership and a lot of awards recognition, but while the series was billed as a one-off, its success has prompted discussion of a follow-up.
“It is really up to Damon at this point, he is thinking about what he wants to do,” Bloys said. “Truly, I don’t know at this point whether it is a returning drama series of a limited series. I think one of the things Damon did so brilliantly was, he opened up this entire world. So maybe there is another version with a whole new set of characters. I don’t know because Damon doesn’t know, and I’m taking his lead on this.”
According to the HBO President, he’s open to whatever version of a Watchmen continuation that Lindelof has in mind, “If it’s a season two – great, if it’s a new take on the world – great, if it’s something else completely, I’m just going [to] take his lead.”
