Watchmen is an American superhero drama television series, serving as a continuation of the 1987 DC Comics limited series of the same name created by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons. The TV series is created by Damon Lindelof for HBO, with Lindelof serving as executive producer and writer. Its ensemble cast includes Regina King, Don Johnson, Tim Blake Nelson, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Andrew Howard, Jacob Ming-Trent, Tom Mison, Sara Vickers, Dylan Schombing, Louis Gossett Jr., Jeremy Irons, Jean Smart, and Hong Chau.
Lindelof likened the television series to a “remix” of the original comic series. While the series is technically a sequel, which takes place 34 years after the events of the comics within the same alternate reality, Lindelof wanted to introduce new characters and conflicts that create a new story within the Watchmen continuity, rather than creating a reboot.
The series focuses on events surrounding racial tensions in Tulsa, Oklahoma in 2019. A white supremacist group, the Seventh Kavalry, has taken up arms against the local police force because of perceived racial injustices, causing the police to conceal their identities with masks to prevent the Seventh Kavalry from targeting them in their homes. Angela Abar (King), a detective known as Sister Night, investigates the murder of her friend and superior, Judd Crawford (Johnson), and discovers secrets regarding the situations around vigilantism. In addition to new characters, the show features characters from the limited series, including Doctor Manhattan, Silk Spectre, and Ozymandias.
The series premiered on October 20, 2019, with the first season consisting of nine episodes.
Watchmen takes place in an alternative reality, 34 years after the events of the comic series. Vigilantes, once seen as heroes, have been outlawed due to their violent methods. In 1985, Adrian Veidt, formerly known as the vigilante Ozymandias, created a fake attack on New York City by a squid-like alien that resulted in millions being killed, coercing nations to work together against a common threat and to avert a nuclear holocaust. Veidt’s actions disgusted his former companions, with Rorschach planning to tell the world of Veidt’s misdeeds before he is vaporized by Doctor Manhattan, who subsequently left the planet, unaware Rorschach had sent his journal to be published beforehand.
The show takes place in 2019 Tulsa, Oklahoma. A white supremacist group, the Seventh Kavalry, has appropriated Rorschach’s writings and masked image to wage violent war against minorities and the police that enforce special reparations for victims of racial injustice. On Christmas Eve 2016, during an event that came to be known as the “White Night”, the Kavalry attacked the homes of 40 Tulsa police officers. Of those who survived, only two stayed with the force: Detective Angela Abar and Chief Judd Crawford. As the police force was rebuilt, laws were passed that required police to not disclose their profession and to protect their identities while on the job by wearing masks, which includes allowing for costumed police officers.
