HBO brought a brand new trailer for their upcoming Watchmen TV series to SDCC and it’s all kinds of amazing. Come inside to watch!
A couple months ago, we got our first look at HBO’s new Watchmen series, but Comic-Con has delivered a lengthier, and super impressive new trailer for fans of the comic:
There’s a LOT to unpack here, but it does a pretty stellar job of giving a better idea of the show’s new story. It won’t be a retelling of the comic, but definitely plays within that world and features some of the iconic characters.
On top of the trailer a few more details on the show were announced, including that the first season will consist of eight, one-hour episodes. Based on what we see here, we’re definitely in for quite a treat…
From Damon Lindelof and set in an alternate history where masked vigilantes are treated as outlaws, this drama series embraces the nostalgia of the original groundbreaking graphic novel of the same name while attempting to break new ground of its own. The cast includes Regina King, Jeremy Irons, Don Johnson, Jean Smart, Tim Blake Nelson, Louis Gossett Jr., Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Hong Chau, Andrew Howard, Tom Mison, Frances Fisher, Jacob Ming-Trent, Sara Vickers, Dylan Schombing, and James Wolk.
Watchmen will hit HBO this October. Just in time to get your own mask.
