I'd be curious to see what happens afterwards. Not just Angela inherited Jon's powers but also we are looking at a world in which the truth of Veidt's actions 34 years ago finally came to the light and even Ozymandias is finally paying for it.

But he did predict that it "would be the end" or "everything will fall", so perhaps exploring that prediction and if it turns out to be true and how the Tulsa characters react to that world.

Plus what kind of real jail time does now Adrian would serve. He finally got what he wanted when Jon sent him to Europa, recognition, but then like Dr. Manhattan he got bored of it and escaped. I bet he wished he had remained there now.

So yeah I'm up for a Season 2 someday.

If they are going to continue working on the Watchmen show, ok, but don't continue Angela's story.

Laurie Blake and the FBI can star in more stories. Adrian and Daniel, both in the same federal prison can also be interesting.

@jerryblake - Yes , it's the only way to make me interested in a season 2 (because I find this first season perfect and I think we don't realy need a season 2 ) .

Really cool show - I've enjoyed watching it. But somehow it left me wanting just a little bit more from it. Like a great meal that was just missing one more course...

I was definitely curious to see what Dr. Manhattans true "Jon" form looked like - but I get what they were going for.
Dredd97 - 12/16/2019, 4:46 PM
@Kman - I mean the show used the graphic novel as a history book, so I'm assuming he wouldn't stray too far from the comic look.

Lindeloff says he isn't comfortable with calling it an ongoing show, but HBO's marketing team has been using the phrase "Season 1" a lot, so he and his benefactors may have different ideas on that.
dracula - 12/16/2019, 1:32 PM
@rabid - hopefully they end it, he said it himself he doesn't have anymore ideas. Keep it going and it will probably turn to crap.

Maybe turn it into an anthology show, new cast of characters, with appearences by the old cast members, telling a new story in the watchmen world, and a different showrunner

@rabid - HBO also wanted more GOT seasons but listened to D&D's demands of ending it early; I'm sure they'll do the same here.

@dracula - If they do more Watchmen they need an incredible show-runner. We've seen what's happened to Watchmen when it's given to people who don't quite understand it (Before Watchmen, the movie) so they'd need someone on the level of Lindelof.
rabid - 12/16/2019, 1:52 PM
@dracula - That's how I could see it continuing. Leave this story alone and finish Nite Owl's story.

OK; I know I already didn't like most of the season... but that finale was pretty damn underwhelming/unsatisfying, right? Is that a no-go to acknowledge or what?

Even though I criticised most of the season for merely building towards the final episodes, I was still willing to see what that would ultimately look like. In the end it just felt like Lindelof was trying to wrap things up as quickly as possible because he had an episode count to adhere to.

@Kurne -

Did we watch the same show/finale?
Dredd97 - 12/16/2019, 4:48 PM
@Kurne - I don't agree with you at all. It was fantastic.
IronGenesis - 12/16/2019, 1:19 PM
Although it was only ONE SCENE/EPISODE...(right?)

I was thoroughly captivated by Captain Metropolis and would put my vote down to do a a Prequel Series that explores more of the Original New Minutemen.
tmp3 - 12/16/2019, 1:35 PM
@IronGenesis - I thought that Captain Metropolis was just some square in the original comic, but making him complicit in turning a blind eye to Cyclops made him so much more of a complex character; especially with how much he later regretted it, to the point of gifting Reeves his estate.
IronGenesis - 12/16/2019, 1:54 PM
@tmp3 - look how much they re altered hooded justice. There is more to mine with all the original minutemen.

But it’s probably a pipe dream.
rabid - 12/16/2019, 1:55 PM
@tmp3 - Metropolis was acting the part of a honey trap, almost straight out of the CIA handbook. That makes me wonder if there was some social mastermind before Veidt that had enlisted him. Hard to believe he started the Minutemen all by himself just to squash vigilantism and save the Cyclops.
