Lost NYCC

Ten years after the emotional and divisive series finale of ABC’s Lost, MTV’s Josh Horowitz hosted a New York Comic Con panel looking back on the phenomenal sci-fi adventure series. Showrunners Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse dropped by to confirm a new piece of canon and address how the show would be different if they were making it in 2020, what aspect of working on the series they’re most nostalgic for, and much more. Check out the full panel, or just get the highlights, below. Read More »

Euphoria pandemic

Euphoria, HBO’s sex- and drug-fueled teenaged drama, won’t start shooting its second season until sometime next year. But the news isn’t all bad: fans will get a stepping stone before the second season drops.

HBO president Casey Bloys confirmed that a Euphoria pandemic episode, what he’s calling a “special COVID episode,” will air before the second season premieres on the premium cable channel. Meanwhile, Bloys and Watchmen showrunner Damon Lindelof also doubled down on the idea that there won’t be another season of the superhero show…at least, not any time soon. Read More »

Watchmen season 2 - Regina King

Watchmen, last year’s HBO series overseen by Lost and The Leftovers showrunner Damon Lindelof, was a miraculous piece of storytelling that pushed the envelope in terms of what a sequel to a beloved property could be. It also happened to be remarkably prescient in terms of topics like race and police brutality, which are obviously very much at the center of the national conversation several months after the series wrapped up.

But Lindelof has said multiple times that he has not yet had an idea for a possible second season, and in a new interview, he’s actively inviting other writers to come forward and pitch something to HBO. Read his new quotes below.

Lost was only supposed to last three seasons

Even though the hit ABC mystery drama Lost came to an end ten years ago, we’re still slightly obsessed with the show here at /Film. Showrunners Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse became superstars during the show’s run, and behind the scenes stories were devoured by fans almost as rabidly as new episodes of the show itself. But in a new interview, Lindelof revealed some details about the making of Lost that I’d never heard before: namely, that the show was originally pitched as a three-season series, and that he and Cuse almost stepped aside as showrunners after the third season.

Watch Watchmen for Free

Last year, HBO’s Watchmen series from executive producer Damon Lindelof blew us all away by not only being a riveting sequel to the groundbreaking comic series, but a searing indictment of systemic racism, both in law enforcement and American society at large. Now HBO is giving everyone a chance to see this powerful and provocative series by making it available for free to watch starting on June 19, and the date for this is certainly not without meaning.  Read More »

World's Greatest Book Club

During the heyday of ABC’s Lost, actor Paul Scheer (The League, Black Monday) was such a fan of the show that he became the go-to host for events surrounding the mystery series. (He was on the ground floor during the launch of the Lost art show which catapulted Gallery1988 to fame.) Now Scheer is hosting a brand new digital series called The World’s Greatest Book Club for Marvel Comics, and he’s cashed in on that long-time fandom and landed Lost co-creator Damon Lindelof as the show’s first guest. Check out the debut episode below. Read More »

Watchmen season 2 update

Ever since HBO’s brilliant drama series Watchmen went off the air, fans have been wondering if showrunner Damon Lindelof would be coming back for a second season. And while the writer/producer has already made his thoughts very clear, interest in the show is so high that he’ll likely be fielding questions about the future of the show for a long time.

So here we are, with Lindelof providing yet another Watchmen season 2 update that essentially boils down to the same thing he’s said before: he might come back for another batch of episodes, but don’t hold your breath. Read More »

watchmen trailer new

Watchmen showed audiences another side of actor Tim Blake Nelson. As Wade Tillman (a.k.a. Looking Glass), Nelson is more imposing than ever before. The reserved cop, to put it mildly, doesn’t need to beat anybody to a pulp to prove or illustrate his immense strength. Look no further than the interrogation scene to see a man in complete control of his surroundings, body, and power.

Born in Tulsa, Oklahoma, Nelson’s casting imbued an authenticity to Wade and the setting of Damon Lindelof‘s magnum opus. As a storyteller himself, having written and directed several films, including the thinking man’s stoner pic, Leaves of Grass, Nelson is as much in awe of Watchmen‘s storytelling as the rest of us. After the series concluded with answers as exciting as the questions, we spoke to Nelson about his experience working on and watching the show, acting opposite of Regina King, and similarities between Minority Report and Watchmen.

watchmen season 2

Watchmen aired its season finale last night – but what if it turns out to be a series finale as well? As of the writing of this story, HBO has yet to announce a second season. And if they do, there’s a very good chance showrunner Damon Lindelof won’t be returning. Before the show even premiered, Lindelof told a crowd at New York Comic-Con that the first season was planed out as something completely self-contained, and that a second season might not happen. Now, Lindelof is doubling-down, confirming that he has no plans for a second season at this time.

But enough about that. Let’s get an answer to the show’s biggest, most important question: Who is Lube Man?
