Misha Green’s series Lovecraft Country is undoubtedly one of the most talked-about television shows of the year.
Green sat down with Deadline, where she talked about the season finale as well as the prospect of a second season.
“With the finale I wanted to bring the arc of the first season to a close, while opening a door to the next,” Green said of the finale episode, which is titled, “Full Circle.”
“In the writer’s room we talked a lot about what “full circle” looks like for each character, and then set out to do that in a surprising, yet satisfying way. I think it’s up to the audience to decide if we succeed, and hopefully they will,” she adds.
The show managed to interweave real historical events such as the senseless murder of Emmett Till and the 1921 Greenwood massacre. When asked about her decision to do so, Green answered:
“Historical references were baked into Matt Ruff’s novel – sundown towns, the Tulsa Massacre, the Green Book — which is one of the reasons I was initially drawn to it. I wanted to expand on those touchstones for the series, and keep us grounded in reality and issues that are a part of this country’s history even with all the fantastical elements.”
As for whether the show will be returning to HBO for a second season?
“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,” Green mused.
We hope Lovecraft Country does return for another season.
