HBO and Warner Bros. have announced the blu-ray release of the incredible Watchmen TV series, bringing with it 90 minutes of extras!

I wasn’t sure what to expect going into HBO’s Watchmen series when it started last Fall, but it turned out to be one of the most engaging television shows I’ve ever laid eyes on. Bringing sharp commentary and engaging characters, there’s a lot to love for fans of the comic and newcomers alike.

The Summer, we’ll get the chance to enjoy it all over again thanks to a blu-ray release on June 2, 2020. On top of including all nine episodes, there’s a BUNCH of bonus features for fans to check out as well: 

Fans can dive even further into the alternate world that has captivated audiences since its debut when Warner Bros. Home Entertainment releases Watchmen: An HBO Limited Series on Blu-ray ($44.98 SRP US/ $49.99 SRP Canada) and DVD ($39.99 US SRP US / $44.98 SRP Canada) June 2, 2020. Featuring all nine riveting one-hour episodes – plus over 90 minutes of bonus content, including two never-before-seen special features exclusive to the Blu-ray and DVD. Created for television and executive produced by Damon Lindelof (Lost, The Leftovers), Watchmen drew 1.5 million Viewers in its series premiere, becoming the second-highest rated HBO original series debut of the past three years, only behind Big Little Lies. The show is also currently “certified fresh” with a 96% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

Set in an alternate history where “superheroes” are treated as outlaws, Watchmen embraces the nostalgia of the original groundbreaking graphic novel of the same name, while attempting to break new ground of its own. Watchmen reunites Lindelof with Academy and Emmy Award-winning actress Regina King (The Leftovers, Southland, If Beale Street Could Talk) leading the cast as Angela Abar/Sister Night. The series also stars Emmy Award winner Jean Smart (Legion, Dirty John), Don Johnson (Miami Vice), Tim Blake Nelson (O Brother, Where Art Thou?, Leaves of Grass), Hong Chau (Homecoming), Yahya Abdul-Mateen II (Aquaman), Andrew Howard (Bates Motel), Jacob Ming-Trent (Ray Donovan), Tom Mison (Sleepy Hollow), Sara Vickers (The Crown) and Dylan Schombing (Sharp Objects), with Academy Award winner Louis Gossett Jr. (An Officer and a Gentleman), and Academy, Emmy and Tony Award winning actor Jeremy Irons (The Lion King, Reversal of Fortune).
