It didn't take long for Lovecraft Country to become an instant hit on HBO.

The American sci-fi horror drama, which is based on Matt Ruff's novel of the same name, follows the journey of Atticus "Tic" Freeman (Jonathan Majors) as he and his Uncle George (Courtney B. Vance) and friend Leti (Jurnee Smollett) embark on a road trip across 1950s Jim Crow America. Together, the three are in search of finding Atticus's missing father, Montrose (Michael Kenneth Williams), and must overcome both terrifying monsters and racism in America.

At the end of season one, fans watched in terror as Tic's blood was drained from his arm in the Autumnal Equinox ceremony. While the season one finale marked the end of Tic's life, it sounds like show runner Misha Green has plenty of future plans for the rest of the Lovecraft Country crew.

Read on for details about a potential Lovecraft Country season 2:

Will there be a Lovecraft Country season 2?

While HBO has yet to confirm that a second installment of the horror series has been ordered, Misha did hint to Rolling Stone that round two is a definite possibility. "We’re in talks with HBO," she told the outlet before later adding, "I’m excited about exploring season two and what we have in mind. Nothing’s official."

Despite the show's leading man getting killed off at the end of the first season, Misha is confident that "the world that was created in season one can be opened up in so many ways."

Who would be in the Lovecraft Country season 2 cast?

Given that their roles are central to the show's plot, it's likely Jurnee Smolett (Leti), Michael Kenneth Williams (Montrose), Aunjanue Ellis (Hippolyta), Jada Harris (Diana), and Jamie Chung (Ji-Ah) will all be returning. As for our Tic, a.k.a. Jonathan Majors, we assume his character is gone from the story for good. But then again, Jonathan did tell Entertainment Weekly that he would gladly return if the show could find a way to bring Tic back from the dead.

"If the angels that be see fit that I continue in some twist, however they’re going to do it, then that’s what they’ve ordained and that’s what I would do," he told the outlet.

How can I watch and stream Lovecraft Country season 2?

If the show gets renewed for a second season, viewers will watch the next installment of Lovecraft Country on the show's home network, HBO, on Sunday nights at 9 p.m. ET.
