HBO’s Lovecraft Country impressively handles a portion of mankind’s greatest genuine and fanciful fear, by matching Jim Crow-time fanaticism with eldritch otherworldly awfulness. The show fixates on war veteran Atticus Freeman (Jonathan Majors), his family, and his companion Letitia “Leti” Lewis (Jurnee Smollett).
On their excursion to discover Atticus’ dad Montrose (Michael K. Williams), they face a huge swath of human and paranormal dangers, pushing them into a battle for endurance.
Despite the fact that the show regularly includes enchantment, religions, apparitions, and H.P. Lovecraft-propelled immense animals, the absolute first scene additionally clarifies that the most terrifying danger the heroes need to confront is the heartless, institutional, and regularly dangerous prejudice of America in the fifties.
As befits a show where both Jordan Peele (Get Out, Us) and J.J. Abrams (Lost, Westworld) fill in as leader producers, Lovecraft Country deftly catches a demeanor of puzzle and dread, while handling the period’s dogmatism head-on.
The final product is luring to such an extent that, despite the fact that the main season is as yet going solid, fans are now sitting tight for the following season with bated breath. Here’s what we think about the release date, cast, and plot of Lovecraft Country season two, up until now.
What’s The Release Date Of Lovecraft Country Season 2?
Lovecraft Country dropped on HBO on August 16, 2020, and the show’s last scene, “Full Circle,” isn’t set to be delivered until October 18. Thusly, we don’t yet have a clue whether the show’s planned to be a self-supporting one-season wonder with a characteristic end, or if it will set up a subsequent season.
Obviously, being a restricted arrangement wouldn’t really imply that the show can’t be reestablished. After all, the Hollywood Reporter takes note of that HBO recharged the mainstream time frame drama Perry Mason shortly after its finale, notwithstanding initially charging it as a miniseries.
In light of the numbers, almost certainly, HBO will in any event consider giving the show another season. Per the Hollywood Reporter, the show appeared to evaluations that were similar to basic darling Watchmen, and it was one of the organization’s best late advanced debuts.
This should imply that the show will wind up with an average crowd of in any event 7,000,000 watchers for every scene across stages, which thusly ought to be all that could possibly be needed to keep Lovecraft Country in the reestablishment discussion.
Accepting that HBO will follow the Perry Mason route and recharge the show after its season finale in October — and, given the show’s high idea and creation esteems — you can most likely expect Lovecraft Country season two to drop at some point in 2022.
The Cast Of Lovecraft Country Season 2
The thing about a show like Lovecraft Country is that individuals bite the dust a ton. Accordingly, it is not yet clear which of the show’s characters will endure right through the main season, and without a doubt, what will be left of them.
Furthermore, the extraordinary components of the show imply that demise is by all accounts a truly dubious idea. Indeed, Leti (Jurnee Smollett) has as of now been executed and revived once.
That being stated, expecting they’ll endure the occasions of season one, practically every principle character is obligated to return for season two.
Smollett’s Leti and Jonathan Majors’ Atticus are likely very high on the rundown of possible returns, as are Auanjanue Ellis as Atticus’ cosmically disposed auntie, Hippolyta Freeman, and Michael K. Williams as Atticus’ puzzling dad, Montrose. Abbey Lee’s foreboding Christina Braithwhite may likewise re-visitation of estranging the pack.
Less inclined to return for season two, however, are Courtney B. Vance, whose George Freeman is (at any rate right now) dead and covered, and Monique Candelaria, whose Yahima was conclusively slaughtered by Montrose in scene four.
On the other hand, the character was as of now fundamentally a preserved carcass got back to life, so who knows?
Plot Of The Show
Lovecraft Country is dependent on Matt Ruff’s 2016 dim dream frightfulness novel of a similar name. The book comprises of eight interconnected parts, all of which welcome their own alarming edge on awfulness and fanaticism.
It is not yet clear whether the show means to cover the entirety of the book’s plotlines during its initial ten scenes, or in the event that it intends to extend things into the subsequent season.
Notwithstanding which approach the arrangement is taking, watchers are still in for various chilling blood and gore flick tropes, from dangerous dolls to puzzling elixirs, to eldritch beasts and the amazing mystery behind Christina Braithwhite’s obvious un-killability.
Based on the initial four scenes, the show is spreading probably a portion of its parts over numerous scenes, so it may keep a portion of the source material for possible later use for forthcoming seasons.
At that point again, Lovecraft County’s framework provides sufficient opportunities to spread the story past Ruff’s tale and fabricate its frightening world significantly further. Notwithstanding the path Lovecraft Country chooses for its ideally up to and coming sophomore season, you can be certain that it will be a noteworthy, frightening ride.

The Boys EP Breaks Down Stormfront’s Origin Story, Homelander’s Reaction
Warning: The following contains spoilers for The Boys Season 2, Episode 6. Proceed at your own risk!
On this Friday’s This Boys, Stormfront shared the truth about her past with Homelander: She was born in 1919 in Berlin, where she hobnobbed with the Nazi elite. Frederick Vought gave her the first successful injection of Compound V, after which she and Frederick fell in love and had a daughter. Frederick wasn’t interested in the celebrity that comes with being a supe today, Stormfront notes. They are in a war for the culture, she argues, and the other races are trying to take what’s theirs. Vought’s true destiny is to create a master race, and Homelander can be the man to lead them. Stormfront then tells him that she loves him and that they don’t have to be alone anymore. A stunned Homelander takes a moment, before kissing her as the Golden Girls theme song starts to play.
Below, showrunner Eric Kripke talks about developing Stormfront’s Nazi past, the importance of telling this story and how Homelander factors into her plan.
TVLINE | In breaking this episode and Stormfront’s origins, what aspects of the comics did you want to bring in, and what did you want to deviate from, and why?
The character Stormfront in the comics is a literal Nazi and comes from early experiments on Compound V. We always wanted our Stormfront to be that character as well. We just wanted to hide it and make the point [that] so much of this modern, alt-right, social media-driven white supremacy really has its roots in Nazism, in fascism, and it’s a direct line. Stormfront represents that for us. It’s just f–king insane to me that it’s a controversial choice to make a Nazi a bad guy these days. When I was a child, there was no argument over whether Nazis should be bad guys, but here we are, 2020! So I wanted to include all that. In terms of what we didn’t include, I think it’s mostly minor details of what happened when. It was nice to tie together the speech that Edgar gives in Episode 1 about Vought, and then learn more about that story through Stormfront so it all can be kind of continued through, and then ultimately [discover] her goal of using superheroes and Compound V to create a new master race.
TVLINE | Did Frederick Vought give her the shot as an adult or as a baby?
In our minds — we’ve written the backstory — she was probably like a 15 or 16-year-old girl at the time. A little on the older side, so it’s lucky she didn’t explode. But not like a full-grown adult.
TVLINE | Since she has these ties with Frederick Vought, and Vought has over the years been protecting her, moving her around, giving her new identities, is that why she seems to be getting a pass from Stan Edgar, even though she’s calling out Vought in the media?
That’s actually a really good question for Episode 8, I would say, because I don’t want to spoil when Edgar kind of lays out why he has tolerated Stormfront… If Vought and Stormfront work together, it’s certainly not the first time in history that a corporation has intentionally put a explosive and divisive and destructive figure out in the world in order to help their bottom line.
TVLINE | This storyline has been very timely, but I know you broke this season a while ago. Why did you decide to do this particular storyline with Stormfront for this season? And did you know how timely it was going to be at that point?
No, it’s impossible to predict, although I would say these issues were the same issues happening a year and a half [or] two years ago, when we wrote this. We still had [our current] administration. They were putting kids in cages, they were talking about somehow this caravan that was going to come over the border and kill all of us, and so we had every right to be afraid, and [there was] the travel ban. You’re not allowed to fly in if you’re from a bad country. All the xenophobia was happening. I wanted to really talk about white nationalism and alt-right racism. That was really important to me to talk about. We wrote this season long after the events of Charlottesville, and it’s just so horrific to me to say that there are good people on both sides. It’s literally a f–king nightmare. So I wanted to tell the story and say despite how savvy they may be on social media or charming, there are not good people on both sides. One side are Nazis, and Nazis are bad!
TVLINE | I also wanted to touch on Homelander’s reaction to Stormfront telling him the truth. I spoke to Antony Starr about how Homelander doesn’t seem to really discriminate in his hatred. He said Homelander doesn’t share in her views, and he’s an equal opportunity hater.
I think that’s totally right. I would say that the other thing that Homelander is most of all is ambitious. She had him at, “You can be the ruler of a new master race.” [Laughs] He was like, “Great!” I agree, I don’t think he shares a Nazi dogma, but the idea of leading an entirely new race and having unlimited power is something that Homelander would be interested in, which is why I think he goes along with it. He is not a white supremacist, but I do think he is a supe supremacist.
TVLINE | I was going ask if she just said the right words to him, but my theory was that the words were that he doesn’t have to be alone, because he’s so needy.
Yeah, he’s gonna have her love, he’s gonna have the love of millions. He gets something out of that unholy union.

The real reason Kevin Costner doesn’t do sequels
The beloved actor has frequently stated his reticence to making sequels over the years, and recently reiterated his logic when pushed on the topic in a 2019 interview with Spin1038.
“What happens is that I really respect the movies I did and if the sequel is not as good I won’t do it … I need to see the script, because if someone likes The Bodyguard and I make The Bodyguard 2, or Tin Cup 2 or Bull Durham 2 or Dances With Wolves 2 and 3, and they’re not as good, then it’s going to bother me. That’s probably not great business advice –- someone would say, ‘Do it. Do the second one, do the third one –- are you nuts?!’ I guess probably I am.”
While sequels to films like The Bodyguard or Dances With Wolves seem like patently terrible ideas, a followup to Costner’s classic golf comedy Tin Cup, or even his iconic baseball flick Bull Durham, could potentially be quite intriguing. Alas, those projects have never materialized. As it is, Kevin Costner is not likely to revisit any of his most memorable roles anytime soon.
That doesn’t mean he’ll never make a sequel, though. The actor went on to tell Spin1038 there’s a particular Western he’d love to make his first foray into sequeldom. “There’s a Western I want to do –- it’s four parts. All the same story, and people are going, ‘Oh Kevin, why?.’ And I go, ‘it’s a sequel.’“
At least Costner has a sense of humor regarding all the sequel talk. Likewise, it’s also nice to find an established actor who’s not just shamelessly cashing in on established properties. Still, let’s hope somebody makes that four-part Western happen, ’cause few things are more satisfying than a good, old-fashioned Kevin Costner Western.
Watch Amber Ruffin’s First-Ever Late-Night Monologue (Video)
Amber Ruffin performed her first-ever monologue last night on her brand-new Peacock late-night gig “The Amber Ruffin-Show,” and it was the perfect opportunity to fangirl over Mary J. Blige.
First, the former writer for “Late Night With Seth Meyers” covered topics like the upcoming first presidential debate, Trump’s resistance to a potential peaceful change-over of power (“We’re gonna have to see what happens,” he said), and the decrease in the popularity of the name Karen.
But just as her monologue was ending, her sidekick, referred to only as Derek, started crying in the corner — and it wasn’t because “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” is ending.
“Are you upset because you saw Mary J. Blige on TV the other day and it reminded you that you desperately need for her to find love?” she asked, to which he nodded.”Aw, you know what pal? Couples grow apart and her being single means she’s ready to fall back in love. Heck, for all we know she could be falling in love this very second.”
Then she turned slowly back to the camera and laughed.
“And that’s the type of stuff you can do when you get your own show,” she said. “Mary J. Blige sketch check and check!”
Watch the clip above.
“The Amber Ruffin Show” airs Fridays at 9 p.m. ET/ 6 p.m. PT on Peacock.
