While talking to Deadline in 2020, Misha told, “I envision a second season that carries on the spirit of Matt Ruff’s novel by continuing to reclaim the genre storytelling space that people of color have typically been left out of.” Additionally, the first season has earned up to the mark responses from viewers which builds a strong foundation for Lovecraft Country Season 2.
