Watchman Season 1 Promo - In the Weeks Ahead

Watchmen S1x01 "It's Summer and We're Running Out of Ice" premiered tonight on HBO


Watchmen takes place in an alternative, contemporary reality in the United States, in which masked vigilantes became outlawed due to their violent methods. Despite this, some gather around in order to start a revolution while others are out to stop it before it is too late, as a greater question rises above them all; who watches the Watchmen?

The series takes place in Tulsa, Oklahoma in an alternative reality in 2019, 34 years after the comic ends. Robert Redford is the longest-serving President of the United States, having been elected in 1992. After a white supremacy group of Rorschach followers that call themselves "The Seventh Cavalry" (wearing homemade Rorschach masks) commits simultaneous attacks on the houses of police members, the police start wearing masks.

Watchmen was created and developed by David Lindelof. He was the co-creator and showrunner of Lost. He has written for and produced Crossing Jordan, wrote for Nash Bridges, co-wrote Cowboys & Aliens, Prometheus, Star Trek Into Darkness, and Tomorrowland , and he co-created The Leftovers.

The series will also showcase different points of view, with the only characters from the original storyline confirmed to appear in the series being Doctor Manhattan, the former Silk Spectre, and former hero Ozymandias. The series will also focus on a detective named Angela Abar who becomes a vigilante called Sister Night.
