Lovecraft Country is the new series of HBO that takes the thrilling action of a pulpy fiction and remixes it in a new way. It is inspired by the work of Edgar Rice Burroughs, H.P. Lovecraft, and legions of other genre pioneers. Lovecraft Country follows one science-fiction nerd as he and his family embark on a terrifying journey across a Jim Crow America. The area is populated not only by vile racists but also with real monsters and dark magic. The series is created by Misha Green, and the producers of the series are Jordan Peele and J.J. Abrams. This show is sure to be the last major show of this summer.
The series is based on the novel by Matt Ruff, and it stars Jonathan Majors as Atticus “Tic” Freeman. He is a bookworm-turned-soldier who has reluctantly returned home to the South Side of Chicago after learning that his father (Michael K. Williams) has gone missing. According to his kindly Uncle George (Courtney B. Vance), his father was last seen going off in search of the truth about the family of Tic’s mother. When Tic and Uncle George hit the road, they are initially joined by Leti (Jurnee Smollett). Leti is Tic’s childhood friend, who is now hustling across the country as a photographer. However, what the three, Leti, Tic, and Uncle George find is both exhilarating and horrifying.
