‘Lovecraft Country’ canceled after one season
When first released in 2020, Lovecraft Country brought drama, magic, and thrill mixed with politics to an American audience in a unique way. However, it seems like that first season is all that the audience is going to get.
Lovecraft Country got famous very quickly because of its insane setting and storyline. Released on HBO in 2020, Lovecraft Country is not just drama but it is filled with romance, thriller, horror, with a touch of history. Fans enjoyed the plot of the show because of its uniqueness. Moreover, the show has a wonderful cast as well, with Jurnee Smollett starring as Letitia Dandridge, and Jonathan Majors playing Atticus.
The plot of the show is simple yet complicated. You really get hooked on it once you start watching it because the storyline is just on point. Atticus joins his friend Letitia and her uncle George to embark on a road trip in search of his missing father across America. But, it’s not modern-day America, but that of the 1950s, with Jim Crow laws still in application. Throughout their journey, they have to deal with the racist American south and some monsters that are ripped out of an HP Lovecraft book. But, if you were hoping to see more of it, we’re sorry to disappoint you.
