Is the Lovecraft Country season 2 release date confirmed? Let’s consider the series’ renewal and when it will return to HBO.
A wealth of acclaimed shows emerged out of 2020 and horror fans were compelled to praise a range of highlights.
One of the most celebrated was certainly Lovecraft Country, which premiered back in August.
Developed by Misha Green, it’s based on and serves as a continuation of Matt Ruff’s 2016 novel of the same name. Season 1 wrapped things up with episode 10 – titled ‘Full Circle’ – in October and hopes have been high for a continuation ever since.
The series’ debut was actually one of the network’s best-performing recent digital premieres. So, is the Lovecraft Country season 2 release date confirmed yet?
Lovecraft Country season 2 release date confirmed?
- The Lovecraft Country season 2 release date hasn’t been announced because the series hasn’t been officially renewed yet.
However, the show’s popularity, audience figures, and critical reception suggest that audiences will be invited to enjoy more episodes down the line.
Showrunner Misha Green has already explained:
“We’re in talks with HBO. I just finished the finishing touches of season one three weeks ago. But I’m excited about exploring season two and what we have in mind. Nothing’s official.”
Similarly, Casey Bloys – HBO content boss – has voiced optimistic insight regarding the series’ future: “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.”
He added: “We all want to be sure she’s got a story to tell. That’s where she is right now, working on those ideas. I’m very hopeful, as is Mischa, so we’re giving them the time to work.”
Taking the source material obstacles into consideration, it’s likely that development on Lovecraft Country season 2 will prove much lengthier than season 1.
Nevertheless, it’s encouraging to hear that work is actively underway and that HBO have expressed confidence in both the series and the team developing it further.
As it stands, it’s unlikely that Lovecraft Country season 2 will arrive until 2022.

Lovecraft Country season 2: What will the plot be?
Plans are under wraps right now but Misha has acknowledged while in conversation: “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 colour have typically been left out of.”
She also said during her chat with Rolling Stone: “I think that it’s a little evident that I just like story to move, and to not be afraid of the possibility that there’s always story to tell. I just feel like that’s 20 seasons in my mind.”
With 20 in mind, 2 should be no stretch!
