HBO announced a new series titled Watchmen earlier this year, and just dropped a new trailer about the show. The teaser is chock full of masked men, terrorists, and violence: just about everything to look forward to in a new show based on the DC Comics graphic novels and 2009 movie.
Watchmen will have nine episodes in the first season, and is centered around a group of outlawed vigilantes in masks. It is said to “embrace the groundbreaking nostalgia” of the original comic series while trying to pave its own path. Writer Damon Lindelöf said in an Instagram post that Watchmen is going to be a remix of the original, rather than a reboot or continuation. However, the show is still canon.
You can watch the Watchmen trailer for show below. It drops on HBO on October 20th, 2019.
