Watchmen Season 2
For many years, humanity has been aware of the existence of people with superpowers, which influenced the further course of history. The Internet is not part of the life of any person, because it was killed in its infancy. But even in such a world, which is not at all like the usual, there are problems that need to be solved as quickly as possible…
When will the series “Watchmen Season 2” be released?
The sequel to the thrilling TV serial “Watchmen” has not been officially announced. At best, viewers can hope for a season 2 release in 2021, but only if the contract with HBO is renewed. It is also known that the creator of the project, Damon Lindelof, does not intend to take up the work again, explaining that he showed everything he wanted. However, Lindelof confirms that Season 2 is theoretically possible. It remains to find a director…
The series is a continuation of the film “Watchmen”, released in 2009 under the direction of director Zack Snyder. Fans of the “Sin City” movie should pay attention to the novelty, since the films are similar in their unpredictability. Many moments remain incomprehensible until the last seconds of the film.
To understand the plot, you should turn to the original film, where we are talking about superheroes of the 40s, which they gradually began to destroy. In order to prevent a nuclear war, Adrian adjusts many situations in such a way that a small part of the inhabitants of the Earth perish, leaving the rest to live. So he wanted to do with small losses.
Doctor Manhattan, the smartest creature in the world, did not immediately unravel Adrian’s designs. But in the end, he decided to take his side, which can not be said about the rest of the superheroes who only dreamed to get even with Andrew for the lives of innocent people. Ultimately, Doctor Manhattan destroyed Rorschach and decided to leave Earth. For many years he lived on Mars alone.
Many years later. A public wave of indignation threatens to go into rebellion. In the courtyard of 2019, overshadowed by the long reign of Robert Redford, who successfully holds his post for 27 years. Because of it, people still do not know all the wonders of the Internet, and live in an American society that cannot be called post-industrial.
Tired of being attacked by police, unknown people begin to assemble a campaign that develops into a cult of Rorschach. The main task for them is the overthrow of the police, which has long hidden its faces under yellow masks. All these years, fighters against criminals took to the streets, but few could become as famous as the heroes of the 40s.
Now the situation is much worse, because instead of the death of several peoples, humanity is threatened with total extinction. Doctor Manhattan chooses just this moment to reappear on Earth. But it is still unknown whether he wants to help people, because his mind after breaking with Laurie has ceased to value human lives.
Such a confrontation does not bode well. But there are people who are willing to do justice on their own. Angela Abar is guided by personal reasons when she goes out into the street in a mask and black suit. She also has the motivation to make her world cleaner. But will this help restore balance between people?
Actors and their roles
- Angela Abar – wife of Cal, brings up a daughter; begins her own mission after becoming a victim of an attack on her house by people who call themselves Rorschach; she has her own idea of law obedience and is not going to give up so easily, since her daughter is always waiting for her at home – Regina King.
- Cal Abar – husband of Angela, a policeman; suffered from an attack by Rorschach on his house, as a result of which Angela became the defender of the family – Yahya Abdul-Mateen II.
- Zack Snyder refused to take part in the series, citing a small fee. Moreover, the creators forbade him to change the script at his discretion, since everyone knows that Snyder made his additions to the script on the set of the original film. Zack did not like this policy, and he refused.
- In total, 4 directors worked on the series: Steph Green (“Scandal“, “Billions“, “Preacher“), Nicole Kassell (“The Americans“, “The Following”, “Castle Rock“), Andrij Parekh (“13 Reasons Why”, “Succession”), and Stephen Williams (“Lost”, “Westworld“, “How to Get Away with Murder“).
- Atticus Ross and Trent Reznor worked together on musical accompaniment. They had already met before when they wrote compositions for the films “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”, “Gone Girl”, “Mid90s”, “The Social Network”, etc. For the sake of new hits, they again joined forces to make cult music for series “Watchmen”.
- Regina King began classes with a karate trainer long before she got into the frame of the series “Keepers”. Therefore, viewers should not be surprised that a woman does not use the services of stuntmen, since she herself can give odds to any professional. Almost all the fighting scenes with her participation came from the first frame.
