The official story of the second season of Watchmen isn’t revealed yet, however, according to the latest speculations, season 2 will most likely return with a different story altogether, and might not continue from where season 1 left off. All these speculations have been made based on an interview, in which Lindelof revealed that Watchmen Season 1 had a “beginning, a middle and an end,” and because of the conclusive finale of season one, it’s highly possible for the creators to create a new story for the upcoming season 2.

In various other interviews, Lindelof has stressed the idea of originality and addressed that it would take an extremely ‘cool idea’ for new season to happen and despite lacking it right now, he is very optimistic that it will happen sometime in the future. He said further exploration of the world could happen, however, at present he has no intention of returning to helm season 2, so it’s up to a new person to step forward and take the charge.
