watchmen new york comic-con 2019

Tick-tock. Time is of the essence for Damon Lindelof‘s upcoming Watchmen series, which continues the story of Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons‘ groundbreaking 1986 graphic novel. Set in modern day, the HBO Watchmen series imagines what would happen in the aftermath of the world-shattering event at the end of the original graphic novel.

Maybe a new legion of vigilantes would rise up in the face of racially-motivated terrorists?

The possibilities are endless, but Lindelof, who created, executive produces, and writes the series, wanted to focus on a very specific story that would be told in nine episodes

“It’s my very, very expensive bit of fanfic,” Lindelof joked at the Watchmen New York Comic-Con 2019 panel, where he confirmed that the HBO superhero series is set to run for only one nine-episode season. “The comics have a beginning, middle, and an end,” Lindelof said. “So does the first season.”
