Those looking for Watchmen season 2 evidence and good vibes may be troubled by HBO's Emmy decision for the series.
The nature of modern television means that sometimes it's unclear whether any given drama is a full series, limited series, or even an anthology series. Ultimately such distinctions don't mean much...unless you have your heart dead set on seeing a second season one day. Such is the situation we all find ourselves in with HBO's Watchmen.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, HBO has opted to submit Watchmen in the "Outstanding Limited Series" category at the Emmys, as opposed to the more competitive Outstanding Drama Series category. This is a change in categorization from how Watchmen competed at the Golden Globes, in which it went up against other dramas. The decision for this year's Emmys puts the show in a category alongside shows like Unbelievable or Good Omens
