Just days after it was announced that #LovecraftCountry was canceled, the creator of the show, #MishaGreen, has inked a new deal with Apple TV+.
According to @variety, “Green has signed a multi-year overall deal” with Apple TV+ after what’s being reported as a “competitive bidding process” for the creator.
With this new deal, Green will create and develop shows exclusively for the platform.
Also, this new Apple TV+ deal will allow Green to work with some of the crew from #Underground, in which she was a co-creator and executive producer for the WGN show that was canceled after two seasons.
At the moment, it’s unclear if #LovecraftCountry will be renewed.
As you know, the show was not renewed for a season 2 on HBO Max.
In a statement, HBO stated, “We will not be moving forward with the second season of Lovecraft Country,” HBO said. “We are grateful for the dedication and artistry of the gifted cast and crew and to Misha Green, who crafted this groundbreaking series. And to the fans, thank you for joining us on this journey.”
Despite being canceled, the show has received 18 Emmy nominations.
