"Just going to leave this right here," Green tweeted Tuesday alongside an image of a rough season 2 outline, which indicated plans for 10 more episodes as well as a section for "season three and beyond."

After the show was canceled by HBO in early July, Green revealed that season 2 would've been dubbed Lovecraft Country: Supremacy.

"[It] begins in a new world, and that new world is a country that sits where The United States used to sit," the Underground creator tweeted, referencing the Sovereign States of America as she also shared a map of a divided United States, including new areas for "Tribal Nations of the West," the "Whitelands," the "New Negro Republic," and the "Jefferson Commonwealth."

Season 1 of Lovecraft Country drew inspiration from the horror-drama novel of the same name by Matt Ruff, which follows Atticus Freeman (Jonathan Majors) as he travels through 1950s Jim Crow America with his friend, Letitia (Jurnee Smollett), and his uncle George (Courtney B. Vance), with the group fending off monsters of both the human and supernatural kind while searching for Freeman's missing father. The season earned critical raves ahead of its 14 Emmy nominations, including notices for Outstanding Drama Series, four acting nods, and recognition for Green's writing.

Following Lovecraft Country's cancellation, The Hollywood Reporter indicated that Green — who's also attached to write and direct the upcoming Tomb Raider movie sequel — inked a major overall deal with Apple, leading fans to call for Lovecraft Country's continuation on the Apple TV+ streaming service.

"I am in complete shock but feel incredibly humbled and am so grateful for this nomination!" she said. "I'm tremendously thankful that the show and my amazing cast members were recognized for our work and Misha Green's fearless storytelling. I feel like I'm living my ancestors' wildest dreams. It's such an honor."

Bill Lawrence Says the ‘Ted Lasso’ Text Chain Is Just as Lovely as You’d Hope

Yahoo Entertainment 13 July, 2021 - 05:27pm

On Tuesday, the Apple TV+ comedy scored 20 Emmy Award nominations, the most-ever for a first-year comedy. In 2012, “Glee” nabbed 19.

When your show puts kindness and modesty ahead of winning, there’s a “trick” to handling a morning like the cast and crew experience today, co-creator Bill Lawrence told TheWrap.

“Ted wouldn’t give a crap about Emmy nominations in the same way he doesn’t think winning or losing matters that much,” Lawrence said. He did allow himself to admit it is a “super fun” day to be a member of the “Ted Lasso” team, and that they’re all “super grateful” for the acknowledgment of their hard work.

And Tuesday’s record won’t change the show — especially not Season 2, which has been in the can for a little while now.

“One of the cool things about having done a streaming show that we knew the three-season story we were telling at the start is we’re sticking true to what we came up with and hoping people will dig it,” Lawrence said.

“Ted Lasso” got seven acting nominations, including a pair for Jason Sudeikis and Brendan Hunt, which on a different set could actually create some trouble. No worries here, Lawrence promised.

“I can tell you that on this particular show, the tone is set by the star/co-creator [Sudeikis] and nobody is counting lines or worrying about accolades,” he said. “It sounds corny, but everybody’s nomination is a nomination for everyone. And I’m at least on the inside and getting to see people communicate and text each other and be happy for each other and stuff and kind of enjoy the fun of this. So it’s just not something I’m sweating on this show. I’m sure that that exists in other worlds and stuff.”

“But this is a good group and I don’t think that there’s really a competitive nature to any of this stuff here, in terms of that,” Lawrence continued. “So much so that I think if you watch the second season, you’ll even see a lot of characters who maybe didn’t get as much screen time in the first season, getting a lot of stories. And all the stuff that we’ve planned to show you about them and their characters is kind of coming into the light.”

And yes, the referenced group-text chain is as “kind” — Lawrence’s word — as “Ted Lasso” fans would want it to be.

“You’d think it was fake,” Lawrence said, but it’s genuine mutual appreciation.

If you think that sounds adorable, just wait until Season 2’s Christmas episode. We’ve probably already said too much.

Soak up “Ted Lasso” while you can, folks. We pushed Lawrence a bit on if that “three-season story” has a little wiggle room.

“We’ll see, we’ll see. I’m still a producer at heart and so I never want to overstay a welcome, and neither does [Sudeikis],” Lawrence said. “We’re still trying to figure out — I know where this three-season story ends … and then it’ll be interesting to see if there’s any other stories to tell. We’ll have to see.”

Lawrence then duly noted our vote of a spinoff for Roy Kent. Thanks, Bill, looking forward to it.
