HBO’s Watchmen Gets A Premiere Date: When Is It Heading Our Way?

HBO’s highly anticipated and heavily teased adaptation of Watchmen is coming to TV near you sooner than you might expected.

After months of giving out vague details about exactly when the upcoming drama would be making its big debut, the network announced on Tuesday that Watchmen will be premiering on Sunday, October 20th at 9/8c.

For those who may not be in the know too much about this new adaptation, it is, according to the official synopsis, “set in an alternate history where ‘superheroes’ are treated as outlaws.” The Leftovers’ Damon Lindelof, the executive producer of the limited series, did share that he will be embracing the nostalgia of the graphic novel co-created and illustrated by Dave Gibbons along with breaking new ground with its new take on those iconic storylines and characters.

The cast alone of the show is to die for. In the large ensemble are Jean Smart (as Agent Laurie Blake), Jeremy Irons (Adrian Veidt/Ozymandias), Don Johnson, Regina King, Tim Blake Nelson, Louis Gossett Jr., Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Adelaide Clemens, Andrew Howard and Tom Mison. Additionally, Frances Fisher, Jacob Ming-Trent, Sara Vickers, Dylan Schombing, Lily Rose Smith, and Adelynn Spoon are also in the limited series, with most of the actors’ roles being kept under-wrapped.
