Lovecraft Country Season 2 is not moving forward at HBO, but creator Misha Green had plans for where the story could go beyond the source material, Matt Ruff’s book of the same name. On Friday, Green took to Twitter to share what the second season would have looked like had the show been renewed by HBO.
According to the showrunner, a new season would have been called Lovecraft Country: Supremacy and focused on an alternate history where there was no confederacy. Green tweeted a photo that showed “a new world” that sits where the United States used to sit, instead the states would have become the “Sovereign States of America.”
It sounds like the new season would have focused on a new story with new characters, although it’s not clear if the show would continue to include the Lovecraftian elements from the show’s first season. I’d assume so, given the name of the series and its source.
The image shows the country divided into different factions including the Tribal Nations of the West and the Whitelands.
Misha Green reportedly created a 75-page Bible for Lovecraft Country Season 2
Green didn’t really go into further detail on the series but it sounds a little similar to other alternate history projects like The Man in the High Castle and the canceled Confederate that was once in development from Dan Weiss and David Benioff.
Deadline reported that the image Green shared was reportedly from a 75-page Bible that was created for a potential second season. That said, despite the foundational work, no scripts had been written for what was supposed to be a slam dunk renewal.
Last year, Green also spoke with the publication about her plans for another season, saying, “Nothing is official yet, but I envision a second season that carries on the spirit of Matt Ruff’s novel by continuing to reclaim the genre storytelling space that people of color have typically been left out of.”
