Click through for all the details we’ve got so far!
According to EW, the show will hit the network some time in 2019, along with Game of Thrones‘ final season and the long-awaited return of True Detective. There still aren’t many details on the show, which will be headed up by Damon Lindelof, but we do know that they’re keeping the basic premise of a society that treats once-legal superheroes as outlaws. HBO has also announced a giant cast, including Regina King, Jeremy Irons, Don Johnson, Tim Blake Nelson, Louis Gossett Jr., Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Adelaide Clemens, Andrew Howard, Tom Mison, Frances Fisher, Jacob Ming-Trent, Sara Vickers, Dylan Schombing, Lily Rose Smith and Adelynn Spoon…. but they haven’t specified who is playing whom?
Since your guess are as good as ours, we invite you to suggest them in the comments! What do you think? Will anyone watch Watchmen? Will Alan Moore be disgruntled?
