The brains behind HBO's Lovecraft Country have shared a "hopeful" season 2 update.

The fantasy series dropped to the premium streaming service last year and in spite of its warm critical reception, has yet to be officially confirmed for a second run.

The first season was based on Matt Ruff's novel of the same name and speaking recently, HBO's chief content officer Casey Bloys explained that Lovecraft Country showrunner Misha Green and a team of writers are currently working on "the journey" taken by Atticus (Jonathan Majors) and company from there.

He later confirmed that he's "hopeful" season 2 will happen.

"Misha is working with a small team of writers and they're coming up with a take," Bloys told Deadline.

"She had a book to go on in the first season, she and the writers wanted to go off and take some time to go out and figure out without a book with these characters, what's the journey we want to go on. We all want to be sure she's got a story to tell.

"That's where she is right now, working on those ideas. I'm very hopeful, as is Misha, so we're giving them the time to work."

Produced by Get Out director Jordan Peele, Lovecraft Country follows Atticus Black and his friend Letitia (Jurnee Smollett) as they embark on a road trip in search of his missing father.

Joined by Atticus' uncle George (Courtney B. Vance), the journey becomes a lot more perilous than expected.

On season 2, Misha Green previously told Rolling Stone: "I'm excited about exploring season two and what we have in mind."

Lovecraft Country aired on HBO in the US and Sky Atlantic/NOW TV in the UK.
