Regina King is willing to come back to Watchmen for a second season if it’s smart.
One of the hottest and most talked-about shows to grace television this past decade was also one that came out in its last year. Starring Regina King and based upon the iconic Alan Moore graphic novel, Watchmen was touted as the perfect commentary on our modern times using the ever-popular superhero genre. Ending with a bang, Watchmen showrunner Damon Lindelof said he most likely won’t be returning to the Regina King-starring show simply because there isn’t anything else to tell at the moment.
Damon Lindelof has stated that he’s totally open with HBO making more Watchmen if they’d like but it won’t involve him until he thinks there’s a reason to revisit the series. Speaking with The Hollywood Reporter, Watchmen star Regina King echoed these sentiments, stating that she’ll return to the series if it’s “smart”, like the first season.
“I can see myself being involved in a season two if it was really smart. I would need to know the beginning and the endgame, unlike how this season was. I did not know what the endgame was. I just totally trust [creator] Damon [Lindelof]. There’s a part of me that feels like … it’s just really hard to think we could top season one, you know?”
Regina King is right in believing that it would be hard to top season one, especially after how well it was received by both casual and hardcore fans of Watchmen, as well as critics. It was genuinely a fascinating sight to see as the lore of Watchmen unravel itself every week late last year. Beyond that, Regina King gave a riveting and already iconic performance in a series that mostly rested on her shoulders. With the way things are being said, it’s hard to imagine Watchmen returning with Regina King returning to it anytime soon. Still, one can be hopeful for a future where Watchmen returns, with Regina King and Damon Linfelof once again steering it to prominence.
