HBOs “Land of Lovecraft” shut down after first season

The HBO channel decided not to renew the fantasy series Lovecraft‘s Country for a second season despite fairly high ratings. The story told the journey of young Atticus, his uncle and childhood friend across the States of the 1950s, full of different mysteries and dangers. Among the latter were not only aggressive people, but also the most true monsters.

The first episode of the project was the most successful of HBO Max’s new original series, garnering 1. 5 million viewers, and the final episode brought more than 10 million people to screens.

The reason for the closure appears to have been not ratings, but the lack of a further literary primary source. The first season was based on a novel that was based on the script plan.

The authors had ideas to continue, but perhaps the level of thoughtfulness of the future story is not satisfied HBO, which often prefers miniseries to long-playing projects.
