“She’s just a super mom, really.
“She doesn’t really let bad work days or anything come back and ruin the time that we have, so it’s really awesome to have a mother that … I can enjoy spending time with and all that.”

Will Watchmen be back for season 2?
As fans know, season one of Watchmen came to a stunning conclusion, but it’s not clear when or if season two will air.
The HBO favorite was reclassified from a drama series to a limited series in 2020, according to Variety.
Season one reaped a staggering 11 Emmy awards, including the one for King.
“Right now the space that HBO is in and that I’m in is we’re asking the question, should there be another season of Watchmen?” showrunner Damon Lindelof previously told the outlet.
“And if there should be another season, what would it be?
“I’m not saying I don’t want to do it, or it shouldn’t exist.
“I’m just saying, ‘Boy, every idea that I had went into this season of Watchmen.”
HBO programming head Casey Bloys said there are no plans for a second season for now.
