UPDATE (September 4, 2019): A release date for HBO’s Watchmen has been set. Damon Lindelof’s adaptation is scheduled to premiere October 20, 2019, with the first season composed of 10, one-hour long episodes.

ORIGINAL STORY (July 21, 2019): The first full trailer for Damon Lindelof’s HBO Watchmen adaptation was released today (July 20) at the second day of this year’s San Diego Comic-Con. HBO opted out of a Watchmen panel but did make the big unviel of the trailer.

The series will be led by Regina King and judging from what we already have seen from the previously released teasers, the show won’t follow Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ original graphic novel too closely. Last month, fans got a closer look at King’s mysterious character.

The new trailer did show signs that Doctor Manhattan might be part of the show plus featured Silk Spectre Laurie as an FBI agent and a headline noting the death of Ozymandias. The HBO series will run as a sequel to Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ original book, with the show’s current events set ten years in the future.

Alongside Regina King are Jeremy Irons (as Ozymandias), Don Johnson, Tim Blake Nelson (as an FBI agent), and Jean Smart (as a new character named Agent Blake). Watchmen debuts this fall on HBO. Watch the trailer above.
