Lovecraft Country, the new series produced by Jordan Peele and Misha Green, mixes the terrors of H.P. Lovecraft's horror novels with the real-life terrors of racism. In the new HBO series, adapted from Matt Ruff's novel of the same name, Lovecraft's monsters and ghouls run amok in 1950s Jim Crow America, particularly terrorizing Korean War veteran and sci-fi lover Atticus Freeman (Jonathan Majors), his friend Leti Lewis (Jurnee Smollett), and uncle George Freeman (Courtney B. Vance) as they search for Atticus's missing father.
In the wake of worldwide protests against police brutality and systemic racism, the poignant yet thrilling new series is essential viewing. Here's exactly how to view it.
