Writer-producer Damon Lindeloff has opened up about whether he will make a second season for HBO’s acclaimed comic-book TV show Watchman. Lindelof’s Watchman was a series of groundbreaking graphic novels of the same name written by British comic-book legend Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons.
Speaking to Collider, Lindelof, who is also known for the popular TV show Lost and the Leftover, said, “The Watchman legacy has been built by Alan (Moore) and Dave (Gibbons) and it has been sitting for 30 years, Apparently Jack (Snyder)) made his film which was a pretty canonical adaptation of 12 issues and then we made our season of television. It was my turn. I came in the middle of the dance floor for a minute and did my act. , But then you retreated to the edge of the circle and it was someone else’s turn to dance. “
Lindeloff said, “To say that I just feel like what’s best for the Watchman, the thing that I like is for someone else to take his shot. I think I’ll move on Is going to be a lot more interesting than anything. And it’s not that I give opportunities. “
