The hybrid genre series, which ended its first (and only) season in October, was based on the 2016 novel by Matt Ruff. Set in the 1950s, Lovecraft Country follows an Army veteran named Atticus (played by Jonathan Majors of When We Rise) as he goes in search of his missing father (Michael Kenneth Williams of The Wire) in Jim Crow-era America .

In addition to the Outstanding Drama Series, Lovecraft Country received awards for Outstanding Lead Actor (for Majors) and Outstanding Lead Actress (for Jurnee Smollett).

« We’re not going to make any progress with a second season of Lovecraft Country », announced HBO on July 2, just days after the Emmy voting deadline. “We are grateful for the dedication and artistry of the talented cast and crew, as well as Misha Green for creating this groundbreaking series. And to the fans, thank you for joining us on this trip. « 

Shortly after the cancellation message came out, Green went to Twitter to confirm that she had presented an ambitious concept to HBO for the second season, but the Premium Cabler existed.

The cast also included Courtney B. Vance (The People v. OJ Simpson: American Crime Story), Aunjanue Ellis (Quantico), Jurnee Smollett (Underground), Wunmi Mosaku (Luther), Tony Goldwyn (Scandal) and Jaime Chung (Once Upon a Time).
