Lovecraft Country: An HBO Series About Racism in the 1950s and… Lovecraftian Monsters? [Trailer]

HBO’s new drama series, based on the 2016 novel by Matt Ruff of the same name, debuts this August. The series follows Atticus Freeman (Jonathan Majors) as he joins up with his friend Letitia (Jurnee Smollett-Bell) and his Uncle George (Courtney B. Vance) to embark on a road trip across 1950s Jim Crow America in search of his missing father (Michael Kenneth Williams). This begins a struggle to survive and overcome both the racist terrors of white America and the terrifying monsters that could be ripped from a Lovecraft paperback.

On second thought, let’s not go to Lovecraft country. ‘Tis a silly place.

Premiering in August 2020 on HBO.
