Il 20 ottobre debutterà su HBO la serie scritta da Damon Lindelof (Lost, The Leftovers) ispirata alla graphic novel del 1985 di Gibbons e Moore.
Diversamente dal film di Zack Snyder, il lavoro di Lindelof è un sequel, ispirato all’universo narrativo del fumetto, ma del tutto autonomo.
Al New York Comic Con Lindelof ha chiarito che sarà una limited series, ovvero una singola stagione autoconclusiva: “We designed these nine episodes to be as self-contained as the original 12 issues. We wanted to feel like there was a sense of completeness, to resolve the essential mystery at hand. Obviously, there is a potential promise for the further exploration of the world but like the seasons of ‘Leftovers’ that I did as opposed to ‘Lost,’ which was designed to have cliffhanger finales and a promise of future storytelling.”
“I feel like it was hard enough just to figure out how to do this season,” he added. “So my hope is that when this season ends that the audience will feel the same thing we did as storytellers, which is a feeling of completeness and resolution.”
