Though it came as no surprise that Watchmen found itself on the Emmy nominations list for 2020, the fact the series was nominated for a whopping 26 categories has caught the attention of press across the globe.
Many have looked at the news in the hope that it would ignite showrunner Damon Lindelof to return for a second season. Something which Lindelof himself has ruled out in the past.
Lindelof has spoken with Entertainment Weekly about the nominations and this is what he had to say:
“The best part of it is not how many nominations,” said Lindelof. “But it’s all these people that I worked with over the course of two years, my creative partners; whether they worked in the camera department or the sound mixing or they were composing the score or doing the costumes. Obviously there’s a disproportionate amount of attention that’s put on the storytelling and the acting. But for so many people who put so many long hours and weekends into this, they really cared about this show.”
On the prospect of a season 2 he commented:
“There’s not going to be an Ocean’s Twelve. The big incentive for me would have been not to do more Watchmen but to work with that same group of artists, and they’ve all scattered to the wind. So I hope there’s more Watchmen. It’s one of those rare comic books that transcends what people think when you say comics.’ The idea can hold real cultural conversations or deep dives into American history, or criticisms of, of law and order — those things are evergreen. I really feel like that space is now open for others to come and play in, and I really look forward to what they do with it.”
The Creative Arts Emmy Awards ceremony is scheduled to be held in September with an exact date to be announced. The main 72nd Annual Emmy Awards will be broadcast on Sunday, September 20.
Watchmen stars Jeremy Irons, Regina King, Don Johnson, Tim Blake Nelson, Louis Gossett Jr., Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Tom Mison, Adelaide Clemens, Andrew Howard, Frances Fisher, Jacob Ming-Trent, Sara Vickers, Dylan Schombing, Lily Rose Smith, and Adelynn Spoon. The series has been developed for TV by Damon Lindleof.
