Inspired by Matt Ruff’s horror novel, Lovecraft Country has become the best original series of 2020. Although season one of the show covered the entire source material, it left a lot of room for the characters to evolve in the future seasons. So, even though it might have seemed initially that Lovecraft might never come back since it has covered its source material, the fans are in for a surprise. Today we look at what the fans can expect from season one of the show, the story so far, and the possible release dates.
Story So far
In Season One of the show, we are introduced to Atticus Freeman, a Korean War Veteran. After returning to Chicago, he learns that his father, Montrose, is held in Massachusetts against his will. He takes the help of his uncle George Freeman and friend Letitia Lewis to rescue him, only to face the deep-rooted racism in the country. Montrose is rescued from a sinister cult called the Sons of Adam by Tic and his friends. It is revealed that Titus Braithwaite is the last male descendant, the founder of the sinister cult, therefore is the key to the portal of Garden of Eden.
It is Christina Braithwaite, who then pursues Atticus back to Chicago. She also forces Tic to get back the pages from the Book of Names to help her become immortal. Tic’s aunt, Hippolyta, learns to open portals through space and time after stumbling upon a secret planetarium. In one of the multiverse, Atticus gets his hand on a novel that predicts his future. Christina succeeds in her pursuit of becoming immortal after she uses the Book of Names.
Although there is no official announcement on the renewal of the show, if Misha Green is to be believed, the show can make a return, and there have been talks with the premium cable network regarding it. Green is even confident enough to claim that she has over 20 seasons worth of story, and there is still much to come. However, it is yet unclear whether the show will make a return or not.
Season one of Lovecraft Country was filmed in July 2018, and the show premiered in August 2020. It means that even if the show is renewed by HBO officially and the shooting is commenced in late 2020, the show will only premier in 2022. So, it seems that the Lovecraft Country fans will have to wait a long time before the second season of the show is released. However, even that is not certain since the is still awaiting renewal from HBO.
