HBO has officially cancelled Lovecraft Country after just one season.

The network confirmed the news to Deadline, also sharing a statement in regards to the cancellation. “We will not be moving forward with a second season of Lovecraft Country,” HBO said. “We are grateful for the dedication and artistry of the gifted cast and crew, and to Misha Green, who crafted this groundbreaking series. And to the fans, thank you for joining us on this journey.”

The horror-drama series, developed by Misha Green, starred Jurnee Smollett and Jonathan Majors. Its first season was based on Matt Ruff’s book and followed Atticus “Tic” Freeman as he travelled across 1950s Jim Crow America in search of his father. On his journey, he comes across both racist fiends and supernatural monsters that could come straight from an H.P. Lovecraft piece. As the series used the book as source material, Green and the writers had to come up with an original second season instead.

Green took to social media to share what fans could have expected from a second season, revealing a teaser from a supposed 75-page “Bible” that served as the foundation of the upcoming season. “A taste of the Season 2 Bible. Wish we could have brought you #LovecraftCountry: Supremacy,” she tweeted. “Thank you to everyone who watched and engaged. #noconfederate.”

Elsewhere in entertainment, the Independence Day director claimed that Will Smith was almost rejected for being Black.
