Home Box Office (HBO), owned now by AT&T,  has decided to not move forward with one of the highest rating shows on television. This is a travesty of the highest order that deserves a remedy.

Please sign this petition to find a new home for Lovecraft Country Season Two and beyond. Misha Green and her brilliant creative team do not need a book to continue this journey. Ms. Green already has a plan for Season Two.

“We will not be moving forward with a second season of Lovecraft Country,” HBO said in a statement. 

From Deadline:

With its unique blend of horror, fictional period drama, real historical figures, fantasy, sci-fi and social commentary, the empowering Lovecraft Country took pop culture by storm in August and helped advance the social conversation ignited by the death of George Floyd.

Helped by strong word of mouth, the series starring Jurnee Smollett and Jonathan Majors grew its fan base, with the Season 1 finale hitting a series-high audience on HBO (1.5 million) and becoming the most watched new episode of an original series on HBO Max in its first day of availability. By the time the finale was released in October, the premiere episode had crossed 10M viewers.

We need to support shows showing positive images of Black communities with strong Black leads and inclusion of all voices, including the LGBTQIA and LatinoX communities. No longer do we want television to just show us as pimps, prostitutes, enslaved, or dishonest people. Enough is enough!!
